For the CLE area, the trend has been to increase the snow amounts during the last 3 forecast periods.  

I’m hoping for a little white stuff to go with the upcoming “cold”. It’s been awhile.

Some WWA and WSW issued for the CLE forecast area.  (Pardon the t-storm warning boxes.) :classic_smile:

Waiting for the snow maps to update.

Still no updated maps.  They’re probably busy with the severe wx in the area.

Here’s the 6:00 AM map which is basically unchanged from yesterday.

New snow map just out. Fairly significant uptick in amounts since the earlier map.  (I haven’t yet seen any local mets go along with these amounts yet.)

All by myself Don't wanna be All by myself...

Anyway, on going Lake enhanced snow continues in the CLE forecast area this morning.  Ground is coated IMBY with light snow falling. Starting to look like winter again.

True LE begins this evening as colder air moves in.

1.7” on the board at 9:30 with snow of varying intensity.   Lesser amounts on the ground/mud/puddels.

Snow showers have been falling for over an hour. The fluff factor is high, so we are definitely into the lake-effect phase of the storm. Maybe we can get two inches of snow out of this.

Just making a post every now and then to keep this thread from getting buried.:classic_cool:

I ended up with just over 6” falling but the warm ground and compaction has cut it to about 1/2 that for snow cover.

North central OH cashed in overnight and this AM with some nice totals! Still some ongoing snow in OH.

yea, it's been a pretty rough winter for LES around these parts..

We have had 2-3 hybrid events to keep us afloat..

Every year all you hear about is the tug getting blasted on a west wind, i move 7 miles west of the hill and we can't buy a west wind lol

LR pattern looks good for some LES outbreaks, but don;t they always..

Have only about 6 more weeks of potential blockbuster lake effect, i just want one biggie haha..

Welcome back Mike, lol. Did you move there specifically for the LES?

This far west, since there isn’t much fetch with L. Erie, we really depend on the added synoptic moisture.  Often times the arctic outbreaks are too dry to create significant LES over here. But the western basis is still ice free so at least we have a chance.
