April 14-15 Snow Potential

Recommended Posts

Pouring IP here right now. Feels like I'm back in the LAF. Looks like that'll be my destiny, as IKK will be just a shade too far East to see meaningful snows. Also noticed SGF and LSX hoisted WWA's for parts of their CWA's.

Looks like a shutout here.  Gonna blast east into the back edge of the snow and say my farewell to snow for the season.  Should only be about a 30 minute drive.

:( 

 

Meanwhile in Macomb, IL

Some of the best rates of the winter lol. If only it were a few degrees colder..

We are never happy are we ;-)

Starting to get slushy on roads here and if this keeps up there definitely will be road impacts.

Can only imagine if this keeps up for most of the day. Just set up a timelapse camera as this storm will be one to remember!

Hail report down by IKK.

Lot of convection working into this main band.


.

Can confirm. It was noisy. A slush down here on the wooden stoop but no flakes

First winter down this way. Absolutely awful. You guys just get ice, rain, and mud. The humid summers make up for it but damn did this winter suck

Lol, ok. One winter doesn’t make for what always happens here. We certainly weren’t on the right side of the gradient this winter, but I recorded just over 30” for the season. That’s right on average. And summers here aren’t different than what happens 60 miles to the north. This isn’t the deep south:arrowhead: 

Anyways, have some flakes mixing in here now...total kitchen sink.

The idea the roads would not be impacted was clearly wrong. They are caked with heavy white slush.

Snow absolutely dumping now. Have about 2" on concrete on everything. A few smaller branches are down from the heavy weight of the slush on the budding trees. I have never seen such heavy snow after the flowers and trees have bloomed out.

going to get more difficult to accumulate as the day goes on with the high april Sun angle ...traffic cams showing wet roads now instead of slush

 

would have been better at night

Granted it was end of day but interstates went haywire quickly in Milwaukee last Wednesday with snow that started in the 3 p.m. hour ("peak heating"). It wasn't treacherous but certainly greasy under the wheels combined with people forgetting how to drive.

Milwaukee County DOT had salt trucks in waiting mode deployed this morning even though they look to be fringed.

This is some of the heaviest snow I've ever seen. Unfortunately no thundersnow here though. A big branch fell onto my raspberry patch and smashed a bunch of my plants. The wind has been pretty strong too.


I took the picture on the left yesterday, and the one on the right this morning.

Drove down to Kewanee.  Full on snowstorm down there with a few inches down and low vis.  Roads started getting slushy a bit north of there.  Ran back out of the snow about 5 miles from home.  Was actually pretty fun punching in and out of the snow.

Ripping here 2" down. +SN

Same here. Road and driveway covered. Gotta love all the spring moisture streaming into this thing. Someone’s going to see 6” if this keeps up.

Quick glance out the door looks like we are approaching 4”. 

Was a little high, 3.6” down on the board. Concrete with much less but still covered

(Probably not all that accurate) measurement of 2 inches in last 90 minutes. There was a huge burst of snow for 15 minutes that just ripped and got the roads/sidewalks covered. Looking at the deck we have at least 4 inches but it is compressing very quickly after accumulating...
