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

Yeah, It's not parachutes, but it's not pixie dust either. Alas, it's accumulating very efficiently. :snowing:

Stuff near Danville, IL looks nice.

I'll take the under...it'll be close though.

I would think 30 cm is more likely on ground by Friday, especially factoring in sublimation and compaction between events. 60 cm would be heavenly but I would be surprised.

My guess is 20 cm of snow from today's event, 10 cm on Friday. Maybe I'm pessimistic, but we've been screwed by overblown Kuchera rates before (even if we're in prime dendrite growth zone thermally, seen far too many rod events when I was hoping for dendrites). And the Thursday night system looks like a classic coastal capture - we'll see how far west the snow shield penetrates, but again wouldn't be surprised to see less-than-ideal snow ratios, especially with such dry air on the doorstep to eat away at that moisture.

I have to admit the wind is increasing more than I expected for this system.

Nearly whiteout conditions here on the west side of Indy. Just clocked a gust at 28mph. Steady out of the n/e at 22 currently.

21z RAP still bringing the goods with an additional 14 inches for eastern lake and northern cook county

If the RAP verifies it's giving me another 11 that will put me at 16-17 in 24 hours.  Those are 77-78 numbers for us.

Yup, I'll second those amounts.  Seems perfectly reasonable.

It's my understanding the record snow pack for Chicago is 29" after the '79 blizzard. Is that in jeopardy this week?

Seriously, like...why lol. I'm about 10 mins SE of Hamilton. This is just unfortunate. Hopefully it builds behind that dry slot or the event may be over for me. 

 

Good luck to everyone in Indiana and NW Ohio! GG! I hope to see the pictures.

this is the worst.PNG

Heavy band incoming. Shits the real deal boys, this storm is so fun. Grabbing my AirPods and walking again. 
 

Giddy doesn’t begin to explain my excitement. I’m on a high right now.

I wonder why TWC chose to go to Cincinnati instead of some other cities ? Not sure Cincinnati will be the jackpot.

I can promise you it won't unless we get a sick, sick band. I'm talking 1-2" an hour.

Interesting line in the metar.  I'm guessing present weather drifting snow?

Still another storm in a couple days so if you miss out on this one maybe the next one.

How do we read this?  1 inch last hour, 16 snow depth?

Yep, SNINC means a depth increase. It means at least a half inch and no more than 1.4" in that hour to get the rounded up or down depth increase of 1".
