Wow! Perhaps a 6" snow!

Well here we go with Winter Storm Euclid, and unlike last week, those of us in the Ft. Wayne region will probably remember that name for at least the short term. A southwest ejector, Euclid, will move into our area by mid morning at best.As it moves to the northeast, snow will be the major issue us here face. The GFS seems to have a good handle on this system, please do discount the NAM and it's exceptional totals. We and no one near here hopefully recieve anything close to it's totals. I do believe there will be 12" swaths of snow to the near south of us, but here in the city I'd say a good half foot will hopefully fall and be all there is. Between here and Muncie the worst weather will likely occur, as this is a narrow band of heavy snow. Points further north and west towards Chicago will see much less, and points south to recieve more. A typical winter storm it is, other than it being a rarity in these parts these last few seasons. Climate change, global warming or not, we are overdue for a major snow event. Here in Ft. Wayne this barely covers wsw criteria, but we'll take it as we can. My figure is actually in line with the lower totals of the NWS, and I expect 5 to 6" here on the southeast side of town with less to the north and next to nil nw. To the south will be where the best of blizzard conditions remain, from a Indy to Muncie line on up to north western Ohio. I do believe the NWS has a good handle on this, so instead of posting links and such I will just leave it to them for the issue of forecasts and reasoning. A white Christmas not here, but the day after oh yes indeed. 5-6" here in town, more south, much less north and northwest.

I'll try and keep some sort of update rolling tomorrow, as long as we get our snow. To all involved the next day or 2, just take your time and don't rush yourselfs. Better late than never, the motto to follow the next couple days. I plan on doing this blog tip a bit more than I have of late, and will improve it with maps and tracks and all that jazz as I get warmed back up to it. Time heals all wounds, or makes you forget how to link and add pics at first lol. It'll come back though. Stay safe all, godspeed.

Road conditions here are surpisingly good. Got to give credit to the city for that. Looking like we'll get a little bit more but really the worst is past.

We've gotten 2-4" here so far. I'm about to have to brave it, hoping the roads are somewhat decent. I'll give a report of conditions when I return. And yes I did indeed pick a great time to return.

Welcome back! Fine time to get back to blogging. This storm just looks like a monster on sattelite. Nothing worthwhile happening here yet with a little too much warm air working in aloft. With this strange mix we must have different layers of warmth and cold aloft. Keep safe today!
