April 27-28 Potentially Historic Super Late Season Winter Storm

Recommended Posts

Were not seeing heavy enough rates yet to accumulate, grass is still wet and green (and getting long).

Whats the deal in Milwaukee? Low dew points/dry NE winds eating away at the precip?

Widespread TSSN in NW. IA currently.

A couple of 3-4" reports in that area a bit ago as well.

Absolute rippage under these heavier returns 

 

reminds me of of two weeks ago 

Any sign of it sticking on the pavement?  

Even when it was ripping like crazy here a little while ago, it was only sticking to colder surfaces.  Probably would've needed a much longer duration.

Precip has pretty much switched to all rain now.  

R/S line pretty much stationary along I-88 now looks like.

Nope, and after 10-15 minutes of rippage, we popped back over to rain

Well, whatever the roads are like for the next several hours, the conditions should get worse after 6-7 pm or so as sunset gets closer.  Should have heavy precip still occurring in N IL at that time.

They’ve had a number of events this winter where they were stubborn to change their thoughts until the event was underway and it was too late to adjust.  This will be another one.

Definitely underwhelming so far, relative to expectations. Dusting on grass, nothing on paved surfaces. The rates just aren’t high enough.

Teeny flakes in Madison, not sticking to pavement. WSW will bust hard unless things turn around soon, and I'm fine with that.18632175b78e8a30a3faf8d60a5c2fc8.jpg

Definitely taking a back seat to the last storm. Around an inch on lawns, parked vehicles and rooftops. Fast start this morning but things have stalled with flurries atm.

I remember the April 23-25 2005 snowstorm in SEMI brought upwards of 16” in Northern Oakland county (40 miles NNW of Detroit) it was a stalled out low that sat and spun for over 2 days. What I remembered is that 90% of the accumulation happened at night. During the day it rarely stuck. Moral of the story is that.... u start approaching very late April into May. Now, snow has to happened at night.

Actually i remember the exact opposite, at least here. Which was amazing. It snowed all afternoon Apr 23 into the overnight and we barely got an inch. Then heavy blinding snow hit during the late morning and early afternoon which is when most of the accumulation occurred, about 5 more inches. It then lightened in intensity by evening and though snow continued it hardly accumulated any more. Total snow here 6.7". 

 

Of course that is the exception not the rule. Obviously for the most part nighttime is a help in spring snows.

So Detroit has one subpar Winter and that means hes not missing much? He missed 62" last Winter (i think he moved just before winter) and the avg this decade is like mid-50s.  Even with the misses snow fell very often and there were multiple ice storms. My statement to powerball remains. He left a place where it snows all the time and goes to a place that can go a Winter without a single flake. I would not survive, he does not miss snow. We are not cut from the same cloth lol.

Sunday was our big day of accumulation here. This was literally a 3 day storm in Southeast Michigan so it's possible that different things happened in both places, but I am positive of the daytime accumulation here because it was absolutely shocking to me.
