Now you see why Lake Effect is the best.

I see LES rates like this every year but residency period going to be out of bounds

Also convinced cook generally does better with this multi banded hybrid synoptic look as opposed to a single dominant band which just end up too transient

Hoping for 8" at least out of this one. 

Very late but my guess is 

Toronto YYZ registers 10.2" but someone in GTA will have over 12" 

Hamilton 14.3" while someone in the Winter Storm Warning goes over 16" 

I might be horribly off though haha

Pretty bummed to be missing out on the absurd rates at home. Hunkered down at a hotel by work so as not to experience the shitshow that will be every highway in the area at 4 AM tomorrow.

Puking snow again. Mother Nature do your thang, This storm is going in my top 5. Winds are cranking again, right around 25-30MPH. Plows have been told to retreat.

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?

 

I think they finally got the warning right as it is now, but I would have put the southeast 3 counties in when they originally issued the WAA.

Shit isn’t good out here in the stix. 19” base of powder that had plenty of time to dry out with -20 dews is blowing like crazy. 
 

Snagged this from a Facebook group, but it’s a fair representation of our east/west roads.

4 hours in a row of SNINCR at MDW 1, 2, 2, 3 in the last 4 hours. That is incredible.

I was starting to doubt I'd ever see snow today, but here it comes. Very big, wet flakes coming down heavy.

Early days but so far flake size is a bit underwhelming. Still time for that to change but given this is a quick hitter going to need things to ramp up in the next 1.5-2 hours. 

ya, the upstate NY crew are saying the same thing.

So uh... this pattern seems to be delivering, eh?

SEMI and SW Ontario 
 

 

Got to be wind gust here topping 35 right now.

 

 

Snow ratios are insane.  It’s pure arctic snow.

 

 

went out with the plough once already on the driveway and literally made no difference.

 

almost seems like 2 inch per hour rates.

Can’t take the ween out of a weenie. Another walk incoming. Rural Champaign is getting dumped on, sorry to bombard but I’m amped. This storm is so fun.
