Freezing Rain Tomorrow, Snowy Thanksgiving?

By: Buckey2745, 2:38 AM GMT on November 22, 2014

We just went through some of the coldest weather we've had since January. We reached an overall low of 11.1° on Tuesday morning, with a windchill that cut to the core at -6.2°. Starting tomorrow we should regulate a little more. But first one last reminder that winter is in charge now. Tomorrow morning:

By 7am tomorrow morning we could be looking at some light freezing rain. At the time of this HRRR snapshot our surface temp will be 25° ...

Summary: Nov 16-17 Snow; Now Comes the Cold

I've got to say, this is probably one of the more significant snowfalls I have seen in November around here since I've lived here. Looking back since I've been keeping records, I've never seen a first "storm" dump this much, and certainly not this early in the season. If this is the way the season will go, we could be in for an interesting next few months.

Here's a quick look at the totals based off of reports to the NWS:

Forecast: November 16-17 Snow

It was no surprise to wake up this morning and find our first Winter Weather Advisory of the season had been issued for Franklin County. It also wasn't much of a surprise to see Winter Storm Warnings further south and west since Wanring criteria is less to the south:

It's not so much a question of if this event will happen. The real question is where the heaviest snow will fall, and how long we will be too warm for snow at the onset. Those questions...

Snow: Saturday Update

By: Buckey2745, 8:30 PM GMT on November 15, 2014

I don't feel great about accumulating snow this evening, even though high res models seem to agree on precip in the area... they think it'll be 30° and rain. That's not going to happen with -11°C upper air temps, so I'm saying we have less than a 30% chance of a dusting this evening.

Tomorrow night is looking like boom or bust. Models have been trending warmer over the past couple days, which does put the Columbus area in a heavier snow regime, bu...

Snow Likely This Weekend

By: Buckey2745, 7:14 PM GMT on November 14, 2014

Seems like just yesterday we were in the heat of Summer, and snow lovers like myself were just dreaming of the days we could talk about winter storms and the potential of shoveling. Now here we are, the past two days have seen off and on flurries, with enough last night for me to call it our first dusting of the season.

I'm actually kind of surprised how little hype this weekend's snow is getting. No, it won't be a monster storm, but this is our first of...
