First Flurries, Don't Believe the Hype

By: Buckey2745, 5:57 PM GMT on October 30, 2014

A lot of hype has gone in to this upcoming storm because of the simple chance of some flurries flying. A lot of people around Columbus have seen the Winter Storm Watches go up for the mountains of WV and NC and think this means our potential flurries could become a major snowstorm.

Well, it won't.

As always, the first mention of snow for the season usually sets off the alarms in people's heads that this is it, it's winter time. This storm will ...

Cooling Down; Flurries Possible?

By: Buckey2745, 1:44 PM GMT on October 28, 2014

October rolls on with our slow decent in to the bowels of eventual Winter, as days become shorter and nights become colder. It seems with each passing week we've gotten a gradual transition in to our coldest season, as opposed to the past few years where it's felt like we've gone from 80's to constant 30's in just a matter of a few days. It's always seemed like we would have one big storm system that would throw us from late Summer directly in to Winter. But not thi...

A Freezing Halloween

It's still 8 days out, but there is a possibility of a trough building in across the area near Halloween that could be our first truly "cold" snap of the season. While I know some places around Central Ohio have hit the freezing mark, many of us have not, including myself. I haven't seen a temp lower than 37° so far this season. And while we should see a warm up this weekend in to next week, it's just building up for our next big cold shot.


LiveBlog: The Cutoff Low

I didn't see this happening. Yesterday's convection over the southeast actually pushed itself way ahead of the cold front, developing a large area of pre-frontal rain this morning. With this it changes everything.

First, take a look at the radar. You can clearly pick out the pre-frontal rain and just about where the front lies:

I think with the general motion of the pre-frontal rain, this may end up eliminiating a flash flood ...

The Cutoff Low: Tomorrow's Risk

By: Buckey2745, 5:03 PM GMT on October 13, 2014

Now that we're about a day out I think we have a much better handle on what our weather will be like in Central Ohio tomorrow. Overall the severe threat is there, as is the flooding threat, but both have diminished significantly I believe in contrast to what some models suggested over the weekend.

This is still going to be a very potent storm, but more for the southeastern US than for us in the Ohio Valley. The latest NAM suggests as the low begins to mo...
