A Snowy Evening

By: Buckey2745 , 6:44 PM GMT on February 14, 2014

Yesterday we got above freezing for the first time since the early morning hours of February 2nd, and only the fourth day since January 27th! It's amazing how 38° can feel so much like 60° after the stretch of arctic cold we've had.

But now it's back to reality.

You know. Winter.

For the past few days I've been seeing this system coming across our area but all models have had weak returns on snowfall.

Maybe that's because that monster east coast storm was watering down all systems after it.

Either way, it's on our doorstep today and it appears the snowfall is heavier and further north than expected. All forecasts up to this point have had the heaviest snow around and south of the Ohio River. Now, seeing this radar, it appears it very well could be right through south central Ohio. That means our dusting could be a little more:

HRRR totals are wanting the south side of Columbus to get upwards of 3", while the Euro, which just completed its latest run not too long ago, is closer to 1" or so.

I'm going to still stay fairly conservative and say we see 1.5" of snow here in Canal Winchester. Maybe 1" or more in Columbus. The real winners will be along and south of route 50 in southern Ohio where 4-5" could pile up.

Another area of light snow will roll through the area Sunday, although for now it looks like we may not get more than a dusting with that one.

Winter gives up next week as I'll post soon about our nice warm up coming in the next week!

We got around 5" down here. That may or may not be the most we've had all winter so far. The last storm was hard to tell exactly how much fell, with the ice that landed on top of the snow.

It looks like last January was the sixth coldest since 1895 for central Ohio:

1 1977 11.1°F
2 1918 13.7°F
3 1940 14.9°F
4 1912 17.3°F
5 1978 17.7°F
6 2014 19.3°F
7 1948 19.5°F
8 1994 19.8°F
9 1979 19.9°F
