And Another Round

Yesterday's storm wasn't much for us here in Central Ohio during the day. Some light snow spread over the area through the morning hours, but moisture cut off quickly as the storm stayed pretty far south and east of us. I predicted 1" and we only got 0.5".

The real story was later in the evening when temps aloft rose enough to allow some freezing drizzle. Usually I don't think much of freezing drizzle, but around 10pm last night my road was completely iced over. Travel would have been impossible on untreated roads.

And now one more storm will roll through tonight. An upper air disturbance will rotate around the base of a large trough to kick off some light snow sometime after dark. I don't think this will be too much of a problem for our area, and I am going with a weak 0.5" of snow tonight.

After tonight we're just left with bitter cold for a couple days and then waiting for the weekend to see what that has in store. Maybe another mixed bag? We'll see...

UPDATE: Tuesday, 10:30am
Well I was definitely way off on that prediction. Probably my biggest miss this year.

I was woken up at 5:30am with a call from my daughter's school saying they were under a 2 hour delay. A couple hours later, closed. A few glances at the radar I could see a heavy band had set up, and it appears that southeast Franklin County was actually the big winner from this one.

In the end we got 2.5" of snow, a huge 2" more than I predicted.

And it's not going anywhere.

The next three nights will be in the single digits, and we won't go above freezing at all the rest of the week.

Quoting 2. TheHermit43130:
Wow, based upon your February 18, 2012 entry, we have already surpassed the Winter 2011-12 season snowfall accumulation total by 2.5".

Easily! Granted those totals were from the Circleville area, but the Columbus area sure wasn't much more than that.

Today is refuse collection for us, and I very nearly fell down twice taking it out to the curb last night. It was actually very bad. Lucky it warmed up overnight, or the morning rush would have been a disaster.
