Winter Storm Virgil: Uncertainty

By: Buckey2745 , 3:10 AM GMT on March 24, 2013

Less than 24 hours from the onset of precipitation and I can honestly say I'm not sure how this storm will turn out. There's still some pretty big differences in models, with some of the latest runs indicating a further south solution. That would actually put some of the heaviest snow in Southern Ohio, as indicated in the latest GFS.

The NWS is still pretty set on a solution that would put the heaviest snow in Western Ohio:

Most of the Winter Storm Watch area has been replaced with a Warning, however Franklin County has just been added to the Watch area... no warning yet. I think sometime early tomorrow morning the NWS will make a decision on whether to put us in the Warning or Advisory area.

That being said I still feel like this will be our biggest snow of the season, and it'll look a lot like Saturn did. The key is how long we'll transition to rain or sleet. I feel like this might actually be the storm that Columbus gets a good shot at heavy snow. But I don't think our side of town will have the most. I'm calling for 4" of snow out of this storm.

I plan a LiveBlog tomorrow and Monday.
