I've been silent on here for a few weeks because honestly there hasn't been much to talk about. We've had a handful of storm systems roll through the area, but every one of them this month have gone north and west, leaving us with nothing but wet weather. I've had 2.07" of rain at my house this month and not a spec of snow.
This month has felt gloomier than normal. I believe we've only seen three of eighteen days with more than just a peek of sun. I woul...

For the second time in a couple weeks we have the threat of freezing rain for our area, right during the morning rush. The first time it happened on a weekend, luckily. This time it could be extremely impactful.
The latest HRRR shows an area of accumulation right up the I-71 corridor by 9am tomorrow morning:
I don't think accumulation will be significant by any means. But honestly it won't take that much, especially considering this will ...

Tomorrow is the busiest travel day of the year for Ohioans, with many of us driving out of state for the Thanksgiving holiday. A massive coastal low may cause some issues for some, here's a look at the major highways out of state and their travel conditions for tomorrow:

The area has been under a Wind Advisory since 7am and for good reason. I just recently had a gust of 39mph from my roof mounted weather station. It's also trash day, so trash cans are blowing all over the neighborhood. We could very well see sustained winds of 40mph later today with gusts in to the 50's. That's enough to break limbs and cause power outages.
Looking at AEP's website (the largest local power provider), Franklin County has more t...

Yesterday morning's freezing rain event ended up being significant enough to cause multiple accidents and road closures in the early morning hours. Temperatures were above freezing by 8 or 9am and we actually made it in to the 50's by the afternoon. This is just the beginning of this storm system that will bring some rain later today and in to the overnight hours.
What could get interesting is tomorrow as the cold front actually approaches and the deepeni...
