This is just the saddest winter so far. 

Agreed. It's bringing back stark memories of '11-'12 winter.

Curious Rob - did you ever  have a winter with zero measurable snow?

 

Wasn't directed at me, but made me curious for myself.

 

I have not had such here. Although I have not lived in Springfield my entire life, I have lived close enough to believe the same applies to all places I have lived during the winter. Probably be a hard feat to achieve for OH as well.

 

Top snowiest and least snowiest records. I've been through 5of the most snowiest and only one of the least snowiest. Kind of interesting actually.

I don't recall having a lack of measurable for the year.  Memory can be faulty, but I seem to remember a winter or two in which any snows that fell were from snow showers rather than synoptic snows.

I've certainly have seen worse winters.  Of course, I am old now :)  I have at least had 2.5 inches of snowfall and an ice storm in my back yard, so it hasn't been free of wintry goodness.

I say about the same here Rob. I’ve seen worse winters. The winter of 3.5 inches about 5 years ago rings a bell. I too have about 2.5 I’d say and that ice storm was definitely satisfying. While I love snow and have been disappointed the past 6 winters or so. A few of those 6 winters we topped out around average without getting a snow of over 2 inches just nickled and dimmed it to average. And a few of those were well below average. I’ve grown accustomed to not having big snows now unfortunately. Haven’t had a snow of more than 4-5 inches in years on years. Hell my whole adulthood damn near and I’ll be 27 next week. So I have come to appreciate even a nice 2 inch snow as that is rare these days.

It's been nearly a month since we've had a measurable snowfall in the Toledo area, and it's going to go longer than that......

I know man...I know. The grass around the pond at my apartment complex is looking pretty healthy still. Just gotta take it on the chin and hope for the best.

I think I saw the snow deficit at minus 6.7 inches season to date.

This storm itself is worthless, but it's looking like a minor LES event following is becoming more likely as higher range models get a whiff

I’m a little late with this, but a WWA issued for the NE quarter of OH for early this AM.  A nice covering of sleet IMBY.

We had about a 15 minute sleet bomb pass through this morning that changed to snow about 5:30 am.......that was it.  Almost dried up by the time I left for the office.  The ground was just too warm.

Got a wind advisory out of it. One thing is for certain, have not had a lack of wind this season. Most have over performed thus far.

Low 50’s.

Thunder approaching.

A couple of partially open dandelions.

Rhubbarb sprouting.

A digusted Hiramite.

....but the winds of change are blowing.

Edit update: Full blown T-storm at 9:45. Heavy rain, winds and hail!  🤮

Had some pea-sized hail come through just before daylight with some lightning and thunder this morning. At least something frozen was hitting the ground! 

EDIT: A second round of pea-sized hail came through the area again this afternoon. More frozen precip today than cumulatively since Thanksgiving.

Had a funnel cloud reported as well. Guessing it would have been around this point.

Whoops, wrong button

I didn’t review the radar history, but I’m guessing that may have been the same cell/storm that went over my place since I am due west of there.  Five hours after the event and with temps in the 50’s, still some piles of hail along the roads.

Definitely some hail with these storms. Also check out how quick the winds push the storm off to the east. The weak low level winds, which is one of 3 things holding down the tornado threat, can be seen with the sort of claw appearance to the storm.

Continuing with the theme of something you don’t see everyday.  WWA and WSW with severe T-storm warnings..
