The storm has come and passed with little fanfare. As I updated late last night the snow just wasn't sticking. Temperatures slowly rose overnight to about 38° before dropping dramatically around 3am when the cold front passed.
Given the constant snow yesterday and in to the overnight, we could have easily gotten 3-4" from this storm. But instead, I have a rough measurement of 1.5" here in Circleville. Measuring is difficult because of the now gusty conditions, which is the reason for the anemometer banner above. Because the real story of this storm will be how cold things will get.
With gusts above 30mph and temperatures staying in the teens today and overnight, we'll easily see our lowest windchill readings of the season... below zero.
Storm reports from around the area are coming in the 1-2" range, so the feared 3-4" areas some thought would pop up never happened.
Instead, another winter bust. Will mother nature ever give us more than a 2" event this season? Our January 12-13th "storm" is the biggest so far. Sad.
