The first day of March is also the first day of meteorological Spring. But it sure won't feel spring-like with another big snow on the way. Or at least the potential for one.
I've held off writing about this storm because as always the models have been all over the place. However, the closer we get to tomorrow morning, the more this is looking like last weekend's storm. Precip will start as snow, and chances are it ends in rain. Last weekend we ended with...

We have another Wind Chill Advisory for tonight, as lows will drop down in the single digits and wind chills will drop to around -10° at times. I think the low temps and wind chills were over done a little by the NWS because the assumption was that winds will really drop off and skies will clear. I think the southern half of the state stays pretty cloudy all night, possibly keeping temps in the mid to upper single digits in some locations.
While it fe...

Round one of the storm has come and gone, and it has not disappointed, that's for sure. A general 3-4" has fallen across the area, with about 3" falling here in Canal Winchester.
Most counties are under a Level 1 Snow Emergency with the occasional Level 2 in rural counties. I've not tried to go out there yet, but I can imagine snow covered roads are the norm today.
Models suggest our temp should rise to 32° or 33° by lu...

I wish I had more time to write something about tomorrow's storm; a storm that looks to be the biggest of the season for us. But between work and dinner plans tonight, I only have a few minutes to fill you in on what's happening.
This morning Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings were raised, only for everything to be replaced with a Winter Storm Warning... our first of the season here in Franklin County. This was prompted because of what I ...

Just about every school district I could find was closed today due to the extremely cold temps. This morning we started at -5.1°, but with the windchill at times it felt as cold at -18°. Having gone outside many times today I can tell you it was brutal. It was the kind of cold that makes your lungs hurt when you breathe in. The forecasted high today was supposed to be 3°, but we made it all the way up to a balmy 7.6° for a high. Still, that's one of ...
