For those of us in Central Ohio this was a pretty low impact event, even though it really kicked in right around rush hour here in the Columbus area. Northern Union and Delaware Counties ended up being the big winners in the immediate Central Ohio area with a couple of 4" reports:
In all, the snow stopped for most before midnight and never really stuck to roads sound of Dublin to Newark. We ended up with 0.5" of snow in Canal Winchester, and I'd sa...

Were you surprised to get home from work and see snow? So was most of Central Ohio. An over achieving Clipper is to blame, as the forecast today was for light rain after 4pm. The assumption by most was there would be just enough warm air in place to keep the snow away. But with the high temperature barely making it to 35° today, it didn't take long for evaporative cooling to drop us below freezing by rush hour.
The picture above is the sno...

After what has felt like a Winter that will never end, Monday was one of the nicest days we have had since last October. It was perfect. But looking at this week's temps so far, you can tell we're on the downward slide:
Since we didn't hit 70° on Monday, I think we go until April before we see our first 70° day, our latest 70° day in recent memory.
Fortunately I don't see any snow storms on the horizon. Probably between now and the end...

Not much of an event for those of us along the I-70 corridor, but wow was it huge for southern Ohio. That's at least the second storm this season that nailed the south. This has to be a blue ribbon winter for them:
Just 1.5" of snow for Canal Winchester, half of what I thought we'd see. Not long after my last update last night showing the line of snow and no snow, that line moved about 10 miles south for the rest of the night. And just like that, we...

We ended up with about an inch of rain overnight here in Franklin County, but places near the tri-state got a lot more, and flooding is a concern there this morning.
Rain is still going strong south of US22 this morning, but that'll change by the time this evening's rush hour begins. Yesterday's Winter Storm Watch across the northern tier of counties above the Warnings have now been changed in to Advisories, which includes us here in Frankli...
