00z GFS gives us some love. It would be nice if the euro agreed, but its performance of late has been lackluster.

Well I'd take that. I'm ready for spring, but if we can get an 8-12" system I'd take that then root for the warmth a few days afterwards lol

0z Euro showed a similar solution to GFS but a little more north and also weaker some.

Wake up people! I know it’s March & this upcomer would be waaayyy better in January, but nonetheless trends are good. Maybe, just maybe, our first WSW in 3 years for central Ohio!

Right?! So crazy, but that’s mother nature I guess, trying the even things out. 

We actually had a Watch back in December that never panned into Warning. I think it has been 3 years since we had a Warning, definitely 2 years.

Couldn't buy a good snow in the heart of winter....now that April shows up...my backyard is targeted for a half a foot {Dayton, Ohio} That mother nature can be a practical joker. I know, April fools. I'm not laughing:

Right? It is the NAM though so amounts always too much. Cut that in half, but still, I feel your pain here to your east.

soooo...

anyone interested in the friday night / saturday possible event?    Models are slowly trending further north and stronger which seems like a pretty reasonable possibility to expect this time of year.   The Sunday night 4-6" surprise was expected to be a weak p.o.s. scraping to our far south 4 days out and look what it did.....and this one is a more dynamic system. 

just say'n.

maybe our final curtain call for the winter and then we can finally put on the short sleeves and sunglasses!

I’d like to actually witness a plastering if possible! Lol. Most of us were sleeping while Sunday night was going on. If this continues to trend better & better, may have to pull an all nighter! Then, let’s bring on Spring finally!

What a wild week of weather though huh? Snow, heavy rain & thunderstorms (some tornadic activity) and then cold & snow again? Pretty cool actually.
