After I posted that...man the snow got nuked. Just some piles left. The rogue drift here and there.

This wasn't the winter for snow cover.

This is an interesting wave for precip type.  Prairie du Chien reporting 41F with drizzle and Dubuque, to the south and east, looks to be mostly snow at 35F atm.

Looks like a DAB to 1.5" likely across the area for later tonight/tomorrow morning.

Well look at that, another guidance fail.

Came out of work at noon to a clear blue sky, a touch of warmth from the midday sun, and the sirens blowing for the first-Wednesday-of-the-month test. A little eerie after what just happened in Tennessee, but nice.

Unbelievable how winter just died out as we rolled into March. I officially move next week down South and will have recorded my second round of golf this season on Sunday. Bonkers stat for Northern Ohio

Agree, but it would have seemed much better if we could have compressed it by swapping Nov and Dec

 

1"+ snowcover days at Detroit

Nov- 9 (record) (avg 2)

Dec- 2 (avg 10)

Jan- 12 (avg 17)

Feb- 15 (avg 14)

Mar- 1 so far (avg 6)

Apr- ? (Avg 1)

39 to date...seasonal avg 50

March opened a Winter wonderland, and 4 days later it looks and feels like spring.  At least you got one last snowstorm before you hit the road

Winter storm warning issued for a potent, quick hitting storm today and tonight.  A foot of heavy wet snow is forecast here in the higher terrain along Superior, along with 40 mph winds later this evening.  Should be a nice little event.

This warm winter is having multiple consequences, with one being the lack of ice on the Great Lakes. Lake Michigan is largely ice-free, and this means that high wind events still have the potential to cause shore damage and flooding in times where there would usually be lake ice protecting the shore. Today looks to be one of those days from Chicago to SW MI. Strong NNW winds, gusting up to at least 50mph in instances, will be blowing down the length of the lake. Waves of 14-18 feet are expected, with maximum occasional wave heights of 22-23 feet. This is on top of a storm surge of up to 1.5 feet from the continued push of water to the southern shoreline. The eastern half of the Indiana shore into far SW MI looks to have the highest waves and worst impacts. I'll be out there today, as I love documenting these high wave events. With the near-record high lake levels continuing, this has the potential to once again be a damaging event along the shore.

Well yesterday we got out first rain event of the spring. Just a few showers before they switched to snow. Barely any accumulation form the snow either. This weekend looks great though. 53 on Saturday and 61(!) on Sunday. Definitely in Spring now.

The storm just off the east coast today is expected to drop from the 990s to the 960s in only twelve hours.

Yeah, big time.  Unfortunately for them most of the snow is offshore.

Well today has certainly lived up to the forecast in NW IN and SW MI. Was out with fellow member Illinoiswedges documenting the high wave event. We saw very large waves, significant erosion and property damage, and flooding. Video to come.

Mid-60’s likely the next two days, which will be the warmest since mid-October.

Hit 68 degrees today, warmest day since Oct. 19th.

 

Be nice when these temps get here without the higher winds. 

 

As sad as the winter had seemed, still ended up nearly 10" above normal on snowfall. 

 

I'm ready to hear some thunder.
