Conditions are something here. Just so much snow, it’s like fog. Just measured 3.2”. So in addition to part one’s 2.2”, up to 5.4” storm total. Will measure again at midnight. Going to be a long night. :D

Just measured 4.1” here about 4.5 miles NW of the city.  Currently sitting in a heavy band and poring snow.

there still appears to be a main band of LES coming ashore Lake./Cook but south east of that several multi-bands moving into central cook with heavier system snow overlap and even yellow pixels on COD (32 dBZ) radar which is very impressive for dry fluffy snow

 

>30 dbz in a lake band is officially barfing snow territory.

Picked up 2”+ in the past 90 minutes in northern St Clair county, there’s a thin band of snow hitting us off southern Lake Huron and it’s intense. Wind is really ramping up also out of the north east. Just looking at the radar the storm looks like it’s heading more north north east then north east like I thought it was supposed to. Heck even northern lower will pick up a few inches if it keeps heading north. Enjoy the snow everyone!

Hey Stebo, I know you’ve had some opinions on DTW over the years, what would you have done for the GRR forecast area? 

It’s seems crazy to me (just a lurker mind you) that based on 24 hr trends and current guidance that most if not all of their

advisory counties should have been upgraded to warning. Even using a conservative 18:1 slr (their number per afd) and 

avg. qpf of around 0.35-0.40 for the whole area, you come out with snowfall and event duration  that would seem to warrant the upgrade?

So incredible outside. It hasn't been since, maybe 2016 that I've had the chance to walk through rates as intense as this. Visibility still very low here-maybe a few blocks worth, with a very fine-grain +SN [wind is hard to gauge since I'm deep in the city]. Temp is 3 degrees. Not sure how much we've accumulated since it's all drifted around.

Getting the goods here with enhancement from the LE band bisecting Schaumburg. Definitely 1/4SM or less, pouring snow.

Snowing at a good clip in Lake Barrington. Roads bad here at Canlan for a soccer game

I cleared my board after my last measurement, then just did an hour measurement for fun. 1.5" was it.. Pretty awesome. And it's puking snow right now. :D
