April 27-28 Potentially Historic Super Late Season Winter Storm

Recommended Posts

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.

I’m just saying I don’t think Detroit snowfalls enough to really truly miss it. I don’t really think there’s anywhere in the southern half of lower Michigan to really miss it. Maybe around GRR

Has been snowing nicely from MBY to ORD corridor for a while now.

It's just about done over here.  I picked up 0.3" of sleet/snow, which boosts my final(let's hope) season total to 50.2", only the second 50" season since I began keeping track in '07-'08.

Delayed but not denied.  Congrats.

Temp dropped, winds kicked up, rates picked up... finally starting to accumulate

Same here...slight increase in rates and temp down to 32. Had been hovering around 34 much of the afternoon. Nearly 1” now in grassy areas, but still nothing on paved surfaces.

If this keeps up for 4-5 more hours, we could make a run at 3”.

Looks like the main axis will end up with widespread totals in the 3-6" range, with isolated 6"+ totals.

LOT canceled the warning. 

Bottom fell out of it over there... looks like it’ll be more of the same over here. Latest short range models keep most areas east of I-69 warm enough for rain and even a couple others showing less than and inch at most for SWMI.

Out driving and sleet is mixing in during this heavier burst.  

Pretty heavy wind driven sleet.  Again hard to believe it is April 27.

Sounds about right.  Probably won't really feel like a warning criteria storm even where the totals hit 6"+... more like a snowboard warning criteria.

Magic number for ORD is 2.3”. That would make it Chicago’s largest snowfall on record so late in the season. 

I think it will fall a bit short, but we’ll see.

What's funny is that if any snow mixes in, which still looks very likely, a trace would tie (and thus supersede) the daily record. That tells you how late in the season it really is.

Nothing impressive or historic about this one at all. Pretty lame storm overall. Kind of thankful, but also a bit disappointed at the same time.
