February 8th - Chance of Snow

By: Buckey2745 , 12:48 AM GMT on February 08, 2012

We're marking show showers as storms now here in Central Ohio, all because of the weak winter we've had. A fairly dry low from the Plains will bring us a shot at snow overnight and in to the morning hours, with the best chance coming right around rush hour.

It's nothing special, not even worth a snow total map. But points south of I-70 could see as much as an inch. I think that's an over estimate, so I say we'll see 0.5" here in Pickaway County. We're that starved for snow that I'll even predict a half inch of snow.

The NAM paints a picture of an ugly 7am with light snow falling:

So while the rush hour commute may be a little slow, and some schools may even delay, don't expect this to be much of an event as temps will slowly rise to just above freezing by early afternoon.

Again, we haven't gotten much this season, so I guess every little bit counts. Right?

January: 3.5" (Predicted: 4")
February: 0" (Predicted: 0")
Season: 3.5"


Yesterday's snow actually ended up being a little more of an event than expected. I predicted 0.5" of snow... well, we got 1.5". That estimate was from the ODOT garage in Circleville, because by the time I got home the snow had melted.

The snow was a wet but almost fluffy texture. Enough to pile heavy on the branches of trees like the picture to the left.

Overall, a decent little snowfall. Enough to bring us to 5" of snow on the season. Only about 500 inches short of our average now!

Hi! I haven't been by in a long while, but I see you got some snow! The thing that I can't believe is that we had about 10 inches of snow in January and beat you in Ohio by 7 inches!! Sure signs of a whacky winter! But, we just finished a run of about a week of extra nice weather, with five days in a row of 60-63 degree days! That must be why you now have snow! We actually have been running below normal for temp most of the winter, until quite recently, and now we are closer to normal with some rain again.
