February 14-16 Winter Storm Part 2

Recommended Posts

I'm concerned about that dry slot in western Kentucky. I think that's going to nuke snow totals around here. I think I'm boned at this point if that dry slot doesn't fill in...

 

Crap.

I just measured 3". Over 1/2" in the last 30 min.

New or including what we got last night/this morning?

I'm gonna end up with no snow before that dry slot arrives. Getting absolutely pelted with sleet though.

There may not be snow on the ground but there’s just enough icy pellets that kids & parents are sledding / boarding down the gradual slope of my dead end street. Very fun to watch/ listen to them enjoy it. That’s making lemonade out of lemons!

looks like a western (north) shift starting in the LES band off shore again so it may snake back north again here soon

Perfect

4 inches here in IND and some pretty significant blowing and drifting, for the fairly dense/urban part I'm in. An hour to clear the sidewalk and driveway, and had near an inch covering where I started by the time I finished. Some nice weenie bands forming now down by EVV which should be fun later.

Not sure what was wind blown vs what has fallen but truck had about 2" on it since 11am. Leave work in 8 minutes, only have a normally 17 minute drive. Have a feeling it's going to be a tad longer tonight.

Has a blizzard look outside even though it's not officially meeting criteria.  Maybe the preexisting snow is making things worse but I cannot believe all of the blowing snow... definitely more intense than I thought it would be.

I would not count my chickens before they hatched. 
Confident in saying it'll snow more than 1-2" there. Your area should be good for at least the range in the WWA. Consider it a win vs forecasts from a lot of the models a few days ago.

Dumping snow. Getting that foggy look.

Similar look to 99, in terms of visibility and flake size.

I will consider it a win if and when it happens.

Quick report from the stix, it's been getting real the last 2 hours.  The wind is a lot stronger than forecast, seeing 20KT sustained gusts to 30KT out here. The onset was a couple hours early with that little 700mb perturbation spinning up.  Snow wasn;t that heavy when that initial band started moving through around 2 but the wind really started the blow fest and keeping flake size in check.   Rates really picked up around 3:30.  Visibilities got down to 1/4 mile to nearly 0  at times.  I'm guessing another 2 to 3 since 3pm, impossible to measure out here.   There's plenty of 3 foot drifts to choose from lol.  It was starting to get pretty bad in town about an hour ago, even some decent drifting starting there.  Highways are covered slick and shaky, the secondary roads are between being fun and scary.  If we can avoid any surprise dry slots (theyre always lurking lol) the brunts do to start here through the next 3-5 hours we could approach 10, maybe even a foot.  It's still ripping out there and again, that damn wind.  Heading back out one more time, don't think it'll be safe in an hour or two.  Quick pic from around an hour ago or so.  I'm in weenie wonderland lmao :weenie:
