“Let’s Talk Winter”

Recommended Posts

Our first snow cover actually survived the rain.  Snowing nicely again.   At least we'll go into the next couple cold days with a snow cover.  No idea what the totals will be from this when all is said and done....but probably 2-4 and very localized.

And now nothing on the horizon for at least 15 days. Sure that could change but as of now nothing. At least it was something to track for a couple days..

It's probably not, but I'm 36, and this is the worst winter with regards to lack of cold and snow that I can ever remember. As a 3 year run, it's gotta be one of the worst runs ever.

I know you've experienced less snow....I believe the year that CMH only got 9" was like '15-'16, (I think).   Also lest we forget 11-12.   But I do agree that this is by far the most boring winter, weatherwise that I can recall...possibly even back in the early to mid 70's living outside Philly.   At least in 11-12 we had the Morch, plus I was in Hawaii most of January that winter so I didn't really care what was happening here.

But this winter, with it's endless stretches of upper 30's to lower 50's by day, very little sun, virtually nothing to track, (not even fantasy storms),  has been the perfect backdrop for the profoundly depressed.    

If there's such thing as karma in the weather world.... Jan/Feb 1978 redux should be in the cards very soon.  A weenie can dream.

Through yesterday, 2019-20 has the 24th lowest total snowfall for Columbus.  There are 2 years in the past 20 that beat that- 2016-17 and 2001-2002.  2019-20 has been warmer than 16-17, but slightly colder than 01-02, so 01-02 is definitely the worst winter of the past 20 years, but we're talking minor differences between the 3.  19-20 is, so far, the 9th warmest winter on record.

Well it looks like another winter winding down for the OV(outside a stray snow shower here and there into March). Not much happened this winter. It was poor. Next year can't hardly be worse. Only place to go is up. Hopefully by next Christmas, this thread will be 10 times as long as it will get this year.

Don't look now...but the 18z model runs move the snow line much closer to the I-70 corridor. Is it a blip....probably....but worth keeping an eye on it. The Chicago posters....who were and still are under winter storm watches/warnings....are on suicide watch after the last model runs.

Unless it's a March bomb of 12"+ I'm done with the winter that never was.

Transitioned to all snow....and heavy right now in Bellbrook. Too bad its 35 degrees and with a late Feb sun angle....snow is slushing on the grass....and just wet roads. Still in this God forsaken winter....its all we have.

This Wx Channel app cracks me up!! Such a POS. Problem is people take as gospel. My forecast when I looked just now. Give it 20 seconds & it’ll change!

Ok, took longer than 20 seconds but back down to 1-3. That is still too high but way better than saying 3-5!
