Run of the mill cold rain now.  Plenty of slush on the streets.  Nothing is icing up.  

How far are you from KGYY?

Come on Kankakee crew, we want some obs.

Everything encased in ice here. Started as some pretty heavy sleet this morning, then went to freezing rain about 8:30. Trees are creaking with every movement of the wind. Temp is 31˚ at mi casa currently. Actually got a real weather station now, lol.

Even with probably getting to or a bit above freezing this afternoon...tomorrow is going to suck. Alas, hoping for a little snow here as this thing exits stage right.

Just hit 32 in my backyard.

Freezing line looks to be a bit north than LOT initially forecasted (infamous I-88 line).

Now just an inch or two of backside snow to cover the icy slop would be nice.

At some point this winter we will have a fully frozen storm in the N IL region!

Green, Rock, Milwaukee and Waukesha counties (south-central and south-east Wisconsin) all have brand spanking new (unexpected) Winter Weather Advisories for snow and mixed precipitation.

Thankfully it's a federal holiday, right?  :P

Rockford is at 33º and we're at 31.3º right now. We may go above freezing. smdh. 
Just a note about RFD, we strongly suspect it's been running warm the past few weeks.

...And now the 18Z HRRR is showing I get an inch later this afternoon. First run that I have noticed where I actually got any measurable snow. It's just a slight shift to the NW from previous runs. If it comes true then NAM will have performed better in my area than RGEM/Canadian which had everything staying farther SE.

Although there is dripping from the roof, I am not seeing that from the trees and power lines.  Granted I am eyeballing out the window at some distance and perhaps a better view would be, well, better.

Howdy stranger. Welcome back and please stay!

What's up Josh. :)

Don't have as much time anymore, but when things get interesting, I'll stop in.

Scattered power outages starting to roll in in northwest IN.  Numbers are pretty small overall but most affected area looks to be in the zone from central/southern Lake and Porter counties.

Legit ZR plus traffic plus the half inch of snow combined with that not quite enough there to send the plows out earlier has created a suitable mess of the roadways.

Similar icy drippage from the power lines as well.11e65423b9d743d051c3149c889867fa.jpg

We've been out for over 2 hours here in northern Jasper county.

Now that the main slug of precip has moved out of here, will be curious to see if this drizzly/light stuff can continue to accrete on certain objects/surfaces given the marginal temps.

This would have been a great storm with any semblance of a cold antecedent airmass. Oh well.

I get back to the city tomorrow after being on the east coast so maybe we can muster an inch of mood dust with tomorrow nights “event”

Went outside and there's definitely not any current dripping of the icicles from the trees and power lines.  There were some decent gusts while I was outside so that would've blown anything watery.  

Still in nuisance territory with the amount of accretion here but wouldn't take much more to start causing some concern, especially if not much melts and we bring in some wet snow later.

At 6 a.m. it was 18 degrees.

Up to 32° per my weather station. The glaze on my truck and Jeep is melting rapidly. Don’t see much in the way of that happening on the trees as of now but at 32° and daylight and WAA, I suspect it will begin melting on the trees as well. Lots of run-off. Slushy pavement. Wind is picking up. 
 

One word. Dank.

Tricky/marginal to say the least.  Most of northwest Indiana has held tough with temps at freezing.

lol at Rockford

Yeah clearly something wrong with RFD. I think we're going to have the electronics technicians go up there to check it out.
