think?

LMAO x2!!!! Sad state of affairs this winter that we have to resort to this for entertainment. Sigh...

Also, sad that if we kept this going, I still don't think we'd hit 14 pages!

Yep, we're already 10" behind last year and going to be 13-14" behind the to date average by time the next chance for some arrives. Unless we get a March 2008 repeat, I don't see it happening.

DAY is on a record low pace, tied with last year right now.  Ironically IMBY I'm a little over 14" total (with one 6" & 2" snow that DAY didn't get) being only about 20 miles away from the airport, usually its the other way around!

This stretch of warm weather is quite interesting. ILN put this out a little bit ago.. The records from 1976 appear to include February 29, 1976 ... a leap year, that may have helped the 60+ days.

I looked outside & it was like a winter wonderland! It was snowing the hardest I've seen this year! Estimate at 1-1 1/2 inches an hour. Street covered. It slowed down now. It appears this will be it for snow this year so it was at keast nice to see. I forgot what snow looked like. Sigh. BTW, this thread was buried when I was looking to make this post. All well, next year will rock! Lol

You know I was thinking that if we stay under 10"....or close to it, this might be the least snowy winter I've ever experienced in my 50 years.   I would have to check the winters in Doylestown PA, (1973-1976) to be sure though.   

There could b some clunkers in there. I was born in '72 so I don't recall. I can tell you that in the late 90s in philly area, there were definitely winters with less than 10. I remember buying my parents a snow blower AFTER the Blizzard of '96 and them using it once over the next 3 years!

yea I'm pretty sure before, (lived in Maine), and after, (lived here),  that it's a safe bet that all winters were over 10".   Just not sure of that period in Doylestown.

ILN:
Best lift and moisture looks focused on
Monday night. Accumulating snow will be possible Monday night with
several inches possible. Will mention this possibility in the HWO
products.

Can't remember the last time I saw that wording in our forecast  5 days out.     The way this winter is going they'll probably call school off for Monday....tomorrow.

And then never hoist a WWA as its snowing approaching 3-4 inches!

Being at night will help with accumulations.

probably a good call.  NAM continues the trend of extending the better snows that are in northeast OH further sw into our area.    1-3 is a decent bet, probably closer to 3 in Delaware.   

Just enough to break the 10" mark for the season and take away our earned right to b^tch about having a single digit total, lol.

It would still be around the top 10 least-snowiest on record, at best top 15 least.

Maybe airport ends up w/ just an inch or so leaving us still below 10. Wait, we all know how the airport measures snowfall! LOL

Things are not shaping up well for Central Ohio. I was never too concerned about any temp issues, but moreso about the amount of QPF. Models have trended drier, especially for us. HRRR has been completely skipping I-71 from Cincy up to Cbus the past few runs.

yup was just going to post this.   It's two-fold.  The stuff coming in from the west not holding together very well and the precip from the eastern low not looking as juicy this far west ....backlash looking less and less.

2nd Prediction:  DAB to 1", (leaning towards DAB).   CMH will still be at single digits for season when said and done.

On the bright side, it's not like we were ever looking at anything that great anyways.
