There's been talk for quite a few days of the storm that's winding up in the Plains today, with a blizzard in the Upper Midwest, and severe weather from the Gulf to the Ohio Valley. I'll go ahead and dispel any rumors, we won't see tornadoes here tonight.
I think we're too far north to get the instability needed to fuel this future squall line, and the front will be passing through way too late at night to have any energy left with it.
What I d...

You wanna talk about a sharp cutoff? This line has been sitting probably less than 2 miles from my house for the past several hours:
It's early afternoon and snow has fully taken a foothold in southern Ohio. The cutoff has set up shop in a very well defined line from Wilmington to Lancaster, and I think we can go ahead and assume anything north of that will be where the 1" or less will be for this event:...

It's really strange to see this much agreement in all of the models for this many days in a row. Since 4-5 days out, we've had a good idea that there would be an extremely sharp cutoff in snow accumulation right through Central Ohio, and that the Mid-Atlantic will get absolutely nailed.
Might as well not delay. Here's what I think snowfall totals will look like across our area:
It's a pretty sharp gradient, but so far every single model ...

This morning's snow gave us a nice blanket on already cold ground. I've not seen many measurements around the area, but I picked up half an inch here in Canal Winchester. There's still flurries out there and it should continue to spit those out occasionally throughout the afternoon in to this evening before high pressure sets in and pushes out any remaining moisture.
Now, lets talk about what most of you are probably wanting to read about... will C...

I've mentioned our two storms for a few posts now. The "dream scenario" is still in play for Friday-Saturday, but we have tomorrow's storm to deal with first.
Unfortunately tomorrow's storm will dive too far south to have much of an affect on us at all. The latest Euro shows it all, as this becomes more of a Kentucky and Tennessee type storm:
That doesn't mean we get nothing from this storm, but it won't be a major player tomorrow. The NW...
