February 14-16 Winter Storm Part 2

Recommended Posts

Still snowing here, got about 2".  Ratios seem quite low due to the sugary nature from the pixies, but makes for a quality addition to the existing snowpack.  About 18-19" of snow and ice on the ground now.  

EDIT:  MLI has 3.5" as of midnight.  Didn't think they'd be that much higher than me, so maybe I did a crappy job of measuring lol.

Well, I said it was winding down here.  Just started +SN fat flakes from a desperate weenie band moving in.  This thing just won't stop, not that I'm complaining lol.

Very nice to see such a wide area down that way get in on a big dog.  Long overdue. :beer:

I can’t express how giddy I am right now. I was hoping to get a few inches out of this and expected the LE to stay south of here, but I’ve had a band over my roof since it started. This will likely be my biggest snowfall of the season (so far?). I guess I’ll sleep tomorrow night.

Lake effect still ripping here. Almost north to south orientation.  If it slides just a mile east, and sits a bit, the snow will pile up quickly.

I'm basically in the same situation.  Hope to wake up to an overperformer!

Nice convergence zone between GYY and IGQ.

Nice drift on the side of the house. I have no idea how much snow I have, if I had to stab in the dark I'd say 6".

Just below 6 inches total for today, but enough to break a record.

Unfortunate that ORD just missed being consistently under the goods by no more than a couple miles off to their east. The 6.7" total seems a little low and @Chicago Storm thinks there's probably a missing 1-1.5" to their total. Once we get CoCoRaHS reports in the morning, especially the ones closest to ORD's longitude, we'll have a better gauge on how realistic the amount is there. They may be able to get to 8"+ by 12z. Considering MDW 3SW coming in with 15.9" and 10.5" between 6pm and midnight, it was a so near yet so far situation for ORD coming in with another double digit event.

It's the nature of LES though and this goes down as the 3rd 6"+ event in well under 1 month, which is extremely impressive. Plus the 20" snow depth, which was last reached in February 2011. What a stretch. Even though I was optimistic for a good stretch back when posting about it earlier in January, didn't think it would be THIS good lol.

I’d say 6.5”-7” it started out strong then we had the dry air play into the system. Flake size was underwhelming after the lull. 2.1” this morning 8.5”-9” in total.

Looking 8 or 9-ish here on round 2 plus the 1.1" earlier today. Nice little storm. Fun commute home tonight. Drifting was legit in the countryside. Should be a depth around 14-15". Ready 4 more

60 miles west of Cincy we got around 7" on top of the 5" left over from last storm. .

Just barely broke double digits here. Storm total 10.2 inches. Some drifts approaching 2 feet. Not bad at all.

Missed my midnight measurement...:sleepy: :D, but woke up at 4 to start shoveling. Measured 4.3" additional...so a storm total of 9.7". Good stuff.

Holy Smokes!!! Picture just kept getting better.

Hooiser wakes up to pound town - sounds like the kind of thing that you wonder, "how long has this been going on".

 

I feel sorry for the local mets down here --- Twitter is rumbling with complaints..."big miss", "Can't you wait until the day before to spout totals, the grocery was chaotic"

 

Two things come to mind:

1) these same fools (if they followed the models/other data) would be spouting the loudest clown map available --- the CONSESUS depiction "Never" waivered here in Cincy-- for like 5-6 days. So anyway.....the Mets are being unfairly judged IMO

2) The exception being the NAM  !!????? It was the outlier, has been totally off recently, and looked like it was "on crack".... is this the "Blind Squirrel" thing or do you put more money on it this next wave?

Bust. Calling it about 5" but with the drifting it's impossible to tell.  Snow shut off around 4am so we had no chance at anything significant with only 7 hours of accumulations.  Definitely a 15:1+ ratio snow though, very airy.
