Some would say this storm could be a bust. But I'm still optimistic. As each new update has come out from the NWS they have lowered accumulations more and more. Now for Columbus we're down to 3-5", but I'm holding strong with my 6" prediction.

Why?

Multiple rounds of snow, that's why.

I think we could end up seeing four distinct rounds before this is all said and done tomorrow morning. We are near the end of round 1 right now, and without going outside with a ruler I think we may have gotten over an inch. Round 2 will roll through after dark. Then round 3, which should be the main event, will hit around 10pm, followed by the end of it with round 4 sometime before sunrise.

The latest HRRR depicts these rounds pretty well. This is the simulated radar at 7pm:

Maybe it's time I admit this is a bust. Round two fizzled out and round three has a chance of passing just south enough that Columbus doesn't even get hit.

We ended up with a good 2" out of round one, and we may not see much more than another inch or two for the rest of the day and night.

The NWS has revised their totals again and thinks no more than another 1-3" from now until daybreak, and it's almost time I admit that's about all we should expect.

There's still a good chance for some additional accumulation for the next 12 hours, but I don't see us reaching 6" total.

Winter Storm Titan is officially a bust.

We ended up with right around 2" down here.

I hope I'm not being unfair or overly critical, but the various model's forecasts haven't been very good this year when it comes to winter storms.

Yeah I don't know where the models went wrong, but this barely was worth a winter weather advisory.
