December 2015 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Came across some beautiful undulatus clouds today while testing my new Xmas toy out on my bike.


Timelapse at the end shows some distinct wave motions... although I could have held the camera steadier!

Hope everyone had a good Christmas, I was gifted an awful flu bug, that started late last night, and is still kicking my ass. Hard to believe first month of met winter is coming to a close.

Looks like GRB and MQT have their snowfall discrepancies!  :lmao: 

 

Miserable day for late December. Upper 30s and varying degrees of -RN, drizzle and mist.

Respectable snow yesterday and last night. Very wet and dense... been the theme all season so far.

The next storm will again be very wet. Great base for the trails!

This is good news. Lay down a dense base and the add tons of powder. Will be up there in 2 months :) I haven't been up north during winter in 3 years. There's been no need with our deep pack. This year I will go and may need your help to monitor who has THE deepest snow ;)

The Rapid Refresh is trending a little cooler and wetter NW of Peoria. If it continues over the next several runs then there probably will be some power outages across that area. I think I might get some gas for my small generator to run the sump pump even though I probably will be fine just East of the city.

Nothing to write home about but looks like a minor/nuisance snow possible on Wednesday.

 

Nice little wave. Maybe a 1-2" deal.

Depending on what happens with Wednesday evening's wave and the LES on Thursday, today's sleet fest may have been just enough to prevent this December from being atop 10 snowless for DTW.

 

If we see 0.3" more snow (currently monthly total is now 1.4"), then it will only be a top 20 snowless.

Definitely a good pattern upcoming if one's just hoping to see flakes constantly in the air with the occasional dusting of snow.

Today was around 35° really early in the morning and then it slowly fell. Been hanging around 28° for awhile now with cloudy skies. 

 

Central IL - I can imagine with lower 20s that freeze up is going to create a new host of issues with ice. At least it will slow the runoff a bit.

Clearly there was more sleet and less freezing rain in Farmington Hills than my area. Most of my sleet melted and there was just a few piles, but plowed sleet piles everywhere when i got to work (but just a tiny bit on the grass).

We didn't get any freezing rain until the last hour of precip. I think freezing rain started here around 10pm.

Skilling explains in his updated weather graphic why the atmosphere might be able to squeeze out 1" or more of snow.

A look back at the historic sleet storm too.
