January 22-23 Winter Storm Potential

Staff Recommended Posts

Local Mets from Columbus mentioned some places could get some snow on the backside of this storm as it pulls through tonight as the cold air fills in. Could be interesting tonight.

Just an all around nasty night/morning here in SEMI. A lot of ice and standing water on roads. If something was treated with salt, it’s about as slick as slick gets. Should be interesting when everything flash freezes again. 

Hopefully there's a few hours' span between the end of the rain and when the cold air returns, allowing pavement to dry up. 

I think we'll see the lawns again by evening, I'm already down to under 2 inches snowpack (I measured 3.7" from the Saturday storm IMBY).  Looks like Monday is the next chance to regain a shovel-able white layer.

Sidewalks and side roads still relatively icy even though air temp got up to 36 at one point last night. I'm right on the rain/snow line of this back-end stuff and I think I'll miss most all of it. Really wanted at least a bit to freshen up the snow. 

Oh, and the snowpack held pretty strong.

Temp up to 37.  Rain ended (for now) in Rochester in a dry wedge, roughly 20 miles north of Detroit.  Hope some drying takes place on the roads.

Under a flood watch now. Most of the snow pack is gone as it's 51 degrees right now. It hasn't really begun raining yet and there's already puddles in the grass. It's basically a swamp right now.

My snowpack survived the rain and above freezing temps. Probably 2-3" in the back yard. Walking on it it, I sunk about 1/2". Not solod enough to fully suppprt 230 pounds.

 

It's bare where pathway shoveled and around structures. This was last evening

Ended up getting a nice dusting last night on the backside of that storm as it pulled through. Perhaps half an inch in some places, but mostly all on the grass. Just enough to make things white again IMBY. Roads were mostly wet when I drove to work this morning at 7:45 AM.

Maybe I don’t check special weather statements that often in the winter but don’t think I’ve seen one concerning moisture on the ground from rain freezing over. There definitely is a lot of moisture... everywhere... and parking lots have 1-2” of slush or something. When it freezes over, which is a certainty noting the forecast, I’m afraid it’s gonna get quite icy.

This is why we hold ourselves to a different level on this forum. The bust is huge, but claims it was delayed until today. Ladies and gentlemen, a system is not delayed between 3-5 days.

Is he referencing the big storm he tweeted very early about?  If so, that is weak sauce. He'd be better off referencing the storm that moved through along the timelines that Anthony Masiello mentioned .
