Light Snow Possible Tonight

By: Buckey2745 , 1:19 AM GMT on February 25, 2014

I don't really like the chances of any decent accumulation with this light shortwave coming through tonight in to tomorrow morning, but it does warrant looking at because honestly this town sort of panics when there is a dusting of snow right around rush hour.

The latest HRRR does a pretty good job I think of showing the snow passing mainly south of here, with some possibly light development over the Columbus area as the energy passes:

Overall I think we get a dusting of snow in Columbus, with up to an inch south of us.

Coming up this week we're going to see more arctic air. So far the coldest air seems to be coming in Friday morning with lows in the single digits from the Euro:

After that our next chance for decent snow will be Saturday, with up to an inch at this point. And then the big thing to watch is a week from today, where all long range models are pointing to a huge southern low that could bring us snow. How much? Can't say just yet, but it at least has the potential to be a big one. We'll have to wait and see.

We ended up with 0.25" of snow this morning, which as I predicted pretty much made rush hour a nightmare. So little snow with so many problems. Welcome to Columbus.

I'm done with winter, so ready for spring. On the plus side, the NWS spotter training is this Saturday, so that will be fun talking tornadoes and other severe weather!
