February 14-16 Winter Storm

Recommended Posts

I am, seriously,  very happy for a lot of you in Indiana and especially western Kentucky who have had absolute trash winters the past few seasons. My family looks to be in a great spot in Kentucky. They deserve it.

18z GEM bumped NW.

At this point are we just rooting for a stronger system to push NW

Stronger storm = NW?

Weaker = SE?

or what are we specifically looking for to root more NW?

Has a lot to do with what is going on aloft...

How far north and when exactly the wave goes negative tilt has the say in if this ends up NW or SE. in addition to the amount of ridging ahead.

Not that it will happen, but when is the last time IND had two snowstorms of 10" in a 3 day period ?

My college roommates and I at Purdue bet on a similar scenario of bringing home two Double Digits in a 3 day weekend.  I can just say nobody won :pimp:

Did they kick you off the Butler B-ball board?

Hey UDDawg (I presume) we may disagree on Butler Hoops issues, but we CAN agree on a thump of snow. Let's do this.

This system is fascinating. Pretty rare to see big snows very far west from sfc low track. Upper level low nearby and good moisture feed into massive cold sector really driving a nice spread the wealth snowstorm. Hoping next storm can be more nw than what gfs/euro show currently. Would be awesome to close out this cold snowy pattern with two nearly back to back snowstorms.

what is the official snow depth at ORD?

Fridays end of the day climate report had 13

they had an obs yesterday showing 15 (and 1 inch that hour) and they got more after that

This morning climate report for Saturday has them back down to 13?????

the record I believe is 29 back in 1979

with luck with the LES parking over them they may have 22-24 inches going into midweek

I assume the correct current number is higher then 13??

 

 

 

 

Snow depth as of 6PM will be 15" at ORD. (14.5" actual amount)

LOT’s most recent images highlighting the storm:

It won’t happen, but it would be insane to have an 18hr period of 1-2 inches-per-hour as somewhat depicted on that pictograph.

When I moved to Indy from central VA five years ago, I kind of figured I wouldn’t be seeing any more blockbusters like we’d occasionally get out there. And yet here I am, enjoying a cocktail, getting ready to eat a steak, and preparing for a legit big snow. This is the life.

Maybe just maybe I will get lucky and see my first ever 12" snowfall. Probably not, but i guess anything is possible.

So since the urban areas of Chicago already have 10 to 15+ inches on the ground I assume places to put new snow are dwindling 

unlike 1979 there has been little wind so far and roads and cars aren’t drifting shut .. those storms caused political trouble for the mayor because the city was at a standstill for days 

Of course snow removal is better these days but I imagine if they get dumped on the city with LES and decent winds in the 20’s it might get interesting 

I recall places like NYC (or Is it Boston)can’t dump snow into the ocean because of the garbage also collected and they bring in melters 

i assume snow can’t be dumped into the lake either

Like I work for a call center IT company, right, and it's based in the south. I never would have imagined in my lifetime I'd see Texas being 100 percent covered in WSWs.

Couple things, this is Galveston TX P&C thru tomorrow.  First thing is it is so nice to see what my usual daily winter forecast is copied and pasted 1500 miles to the south lol.  Second, 1-3 inches snow and sleet on Galveston Island?  That's a pretty big deal

Tonight
Rain showers before 2am, then rain showers and sleet between 2am and 5am, then rain, snow, freezing rain, and sleet after 5am. Low around 29. Wind chill values between 15 and 25. Windy, with a north wind 20 to 30 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Little or no ice accumulation expected. New snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.
Washington's Birthday
Rain, snow, freezing rain, and sleet likely before 9am, then a chance of snow showers between 9am and noon. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 31. Wind chill values between 15 and 20. Windy, with a northwest wind 20 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Little or no ice accumulation expected. New snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

18z Euro didn't really shift much...But was drier/weaker.

Edit: I lied, not drier...Actually a bit wetter. However, much less snow on the snow maps.
