Flood warning has verified in my county. The one tributary we have, Prairie Creek rose to 11.73 feet sometime around seven p.m.. Moderate flood stage for that gauge is 11.0 feet. And that is the highest that gauge has been since 2018.

Missed the main band of snow scooting just north of town with the cold front. Models have latched onto the idea of snow squalls/squall line of snow developing late morning/early afternoon just south of us. Might get a brief period of snow but looks like we’ll be in the screw zone. 
 

At least early next week looks promising.

Potential for a rather high-end (by our standards) synoptic wind event has kind of snuck up on us. Chief met at my employer mentioning potential for >50 MPH gusts this afternoon and evening. MKX has posted a wind advisory.

luckily the timing of the front and snow squalls is slowing down a bit so they won't be hitting directly at rush hour in Madison, more like 6 PM or so

Snow squall development occurred to our west and we were placed under a WWA, it’s currently puking big fat flakes. Too bad it’ll be short lived because this is SN+
 

 

That should track all the way down here throughout the day. Could be an interesting hour or two this evening.

2" of fluff will be blowing around pretty good here soon. NW winds up to 40-45 mph slated for later this aftrn. Frequent small snows are the norm for my area during winter.

edit: winds kicking up pretty good now. Whiteout conditions at times with the fresh powder.

Top 5 snow event 

While the cold front will become increasingly
removed the eastward moving mid-level trough and moisture, these
showers are expected to survive into at least northern Illinois
early to mid-evening. Several snow squall ingredients will be in
place, chiefly a linear forcing mechanism with sufficient low-
level instability nearing 50 J/kg in the well-mixed layer in the
lowest 6kft. Brief sharp reductions in visibility (possibly near
white-out) and quick accumulations of a half inch to very locally
1 inch in 30 minutes or less are possible across northern
Illinois. Timing favors 6-8pm for the Rockford area and 8-10pm for
most of the Chicago metro.

Can someone open a thread titled “February 18th 2-Hour Event (maybe)”?
