February 14-16 Winter Storm Part 2

Recommended Posts

Sitting just a few miles east of the Alek-MDW death band, “only” up to ~6” total as of 8 pm. Still inch per hour since 5.

Looking out my window, traffic on the Stevenson is the 20 mph, driving with flashers-on type of scenario right now

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.

Same here.  Plow in ditch.  Taken by county highway plow.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO/ROMEOVILLE, IL  
813 PM CST MON FEB 15 2021  
   
UPDATE  
  
812 PM CST  
  
NOT SURE WHAT'S LEFT TO BE SAID THAT HASN'T ALREADY, BUT OUR  
REMARKABLE SNOWSTORM (CONSIDERING THE MAGNITUDE OF THE ARCTIC   
AIRMASS IN PLACE) IS ESSENTIALLY HEADING INTO ITS PEAK AT THIS   
TIME, WITH SNOWFALL RATES MAXIMIZING HERE PROBABLY THROUGH ABOUT   
MIDNIGHT TO 2 AM. THE AXIS OF STEADIEST SNOWFALL HAS SET UP SHOP   
ROUGHLY EAST OF A MENDOTA TO MCHENRY LINE. LAKE ENHANCEMENT IS AND  
HAS BEEN ONGOING FOR A FEW HOURS WITH STRONG CONFLUENCE NOTED   
WITH BUOYS SHOWING NORTHEAST WINDS GUSTING TO 30-35 MPH, WITH   
NORTHWESTERLIES JUST INLAND. THE COOPERATIVE OBSERVER NEAR MIDWAY   
RECENTLY REPORTED AN EXCEPTIONAL 2.9 INCHES OF SNOW IN JUST ABOUT   
100 MINUTES. THINK THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL AT THIS POINT GIVEN   
RADAR TRENDS THAT THE JACKPOT AREA FOR THIS EVENT WILL PROBABLY BE  
2-3 MILES EITHER SIDE OF A ROUGHLY WINNETKA/EVANSTON TO MIDWAY   
LINE. WHEN ALL IS SAID AN DONE (AFTER LINGERING LAKE EFFECT   
DIMINISHES LATER TOMORROW AFTERNOON), IMAGE WE'LL SEE A HANDFUL OF  
SNOWFALL REPORTS PUSHING 20 INCHES IN THIS CORRIDOR.

Blizzard conditions here have not seen storm storm like this since the mid 90s.

Agreed. We deserve this. 2007 Vday blizzard, 2014 PV blizzard, and this storm best in the last 15 years.

Still snowing here 1hr east of STL! Most of the flakes are small and tiny now, and the amount is clearly weening off, but it is still super incredibly windy! I plan on going out as the sun hits tomorrow via foot and checking to see how the drifts are.

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 

Yeah this is a rare event for sure.

Can NOT believe dry is air has worked into NW Ohio.  It always finds a way.  There's gotta be something about this location.

Very impressive snowfall rates around here. ILN tweeted about rates as high as 1.5" per hour. Sadly, I don't think it'll stick around long enough for any significant accumulation.

It is filling back in very quickly though.

I guess it depends on what you consider significant. It could probably be here til like 1 am, which could give you theoretically 6-ish inches. That's significant.

Took a Jeb walk and took the measuring stick with me. Hard to measure, but averaging many measurements, I'm confident that at 9:00 EST, I had 7.4". Probably another inch since then. Just incredible out.  A foot or bust. Actually, based on radar, wouldn't be surprised if we hit 14".

The bigger totals might actually end up being on the Western side of the state (mi). Dry slot always find dtw too.

Disappointed the weather channel doesn’t have anyone reporting from areas getting pounded now, but I guess that’s typical weather channel.

Hope Tom Skilling gets on at 9 and shows us the goods.

Per meso we've been in the best alignment with the surface low, 850 and 700 for the past couple hours or so.  Should continue for the maybe the next 2 hours from returns.  Still recovering from the last venture in the truck, crazy s$%t out there lol.

SNINCR of 1/2/2/3/3 the last 5 hours at MDW.

That's a minimum of 8.5" during that time.
