The Winter Weather Advisories have been dropped for our area, and for much of Central Ohio, as the solution I called for a couple days ago has unfortunately come true. We saw about an inch of snow this morning throughout the Columbus area. Now we have a break in the precip before temps rise enough by the time the next wave moves in and we see all rain.
As I said yesterday, I think any moisture will be well east of us by the time we drop back below freezin...

Another few hours and another set of models painting an even wetter picture. Last night's Euro brought the low all the way up through Ross County. A solution like that would bring us rain throughout the entire day Sunday, with bookend snows. That model claimed 4-7" across Franklin County with early and late snow, but even that I think would be a bit optimistic.
Same goes with the GFS, almost an identical track. And the NAM, which in retrospect was ahead ...

A whole lot of uncertainty going in to this next storm, but I think it's safe to say we'll at least get something out of it.... but what?
I've put off talking about the model runs until now because they've honestly been all over the place. Only a couple days ago it looked like this storm may miss us completely to the south. Now it looks likely that we're in the path, but once again placement is everything. Each model run is taking this low further and fur...

So how about a parade of clippers? That sounds like fun. A winter of non-existent big storms deserves another rainy clipper.
I feel like the Boston Blizzard heightened everyone's weather awareness this week, because my wife came home last night and said everyone at work was talking about Thursday having "a really bad storm." No folks, this will be just another weak clipper riding on the warm side of things.
Our last clipper dove south of us an...

The snow has come and gone, and as expected we have a pretty sharp gradient across Central Ohio. Lets get to the snow totals:
Our friends north and west of Columbus got the most snow again, but what's more interesting to me is the gradient just across Franklin County:
Hilliard won with 5", and here in Canal Winchester I only got 2". A lot of the reason for that spread is the all day rain we got yesterday before ever getting a change...
