  1. Those are some consistent numbers, was it spread out throughout the day or just in quick downpours?
  2. Blizzard again?

      I'm one county over from the warning.  Halfway between Aberdeen and Redfield.  Not sure why these two counties aren't included when you look at the map.  Supposed to blow again for a while on Monday again too....after another 3-5" on Sunday lol.  I'm running out of room to push it all!

  3. This cold blast was awesome for the stream, completely froze it up pretty much over the banks. Made the firewood haul over it much easier, could roll the cart on it .
  4. Well, looking at the temperatures, thought I might toss a ring into the temperature hat. We haven't had really extreme cold this year (except the November blast, but that was relative to the time of year). At the moment it looks significant enough to warrant its own thread, even for such a short timeframe. CPC shows some temperature hazards. Another CPC map - this time just temperatures. 12z ICON 2m temperatures. It's a trash can, but I believe it is pretty good with temperatures. Bitter cold. 12z GFS 2m temperatures. Not as extreme as the ICON, but still very, very cold. GFS 2m temperature trend. Have to go back quite far to find any warm air. Even if it is luck, that's pretty astounding. 12z FV3 2m temperatures. More extreme than the GFS. 12z GEM 2m temperatures. This one looks tame compared to the others. 12z JMA 850 mb anomalies. Big blob of purple. 12z ECMWF 850 mb anomalies. Another big blob of purple. Alright, enough hype. First things first, let's address the elephant in the room. This event depends entirely on the Jan 19-21 storm system, how amped it is will impact how much cold air follows. It could end up being relatively tame, in which case the thread title will be renamed. But the potential exists for the coldest air of the season to reach the region, and that's all that matters at this point.

  6. Been a while since I last made a long-range thread. But this time period looks promising in terms of flow. Let's take a stab at it, shall we? If it doesn't pan out, there's always March . BSR 500mb. I like where that flow is positioned. Right off the coast, maybe a tad too close to land, but hey these aren't specifics. Just the flow. BSR surface. Quite a mess to be honest, but look at the amount of storms there. I guess the energy is there to work with the flow . GFS and FV3-GFS. 300+ hours out so obviously this doesn't matter one bit. Just included for those who like maps. GFS EAR. I like that storm moving out from Japan. Interesting storm trailing it too. Note the tropical system down there too - will be something to watch. GEM EAR. Pretty much same comment as the previous one repeated. GFS northern hemisphere. Note the various small waves across East Asia compared to the flat flow earlier. Will be interesting to watch the chaos it evokes on modeling.

    Didn't think I would still be posting in this thread, but currently snowing lightly. .
  10. Lowest this station has ever recorded (put into service 10/11/18). Wonder what it will read in the morning...

    Radar velocity loop says it's towards OKX, across the Sound... but then why would it be developing this far inland???

    Still snowing a full hour later. ! Radar does not make sense.

    WOW, was not expecting this at all, but actually snowing at a good clip now. -SN now is SN. Maybe it will accumulate a bit? Strange thing is nothing is showing up on radar.
  14. Here is the NAM 3k cloud cover - looks good for me. Will try and get some shots.

    Last of the back-end heading well to the north. Storm over for me - I will now be posting IMBY OBS in the polar air thread.

    Wow, IMBY analysis and I didn't do a thing! What a great day . Here's the graph for the full day: Flash freeze is well underway. Walkway is a sheet of ice.

    Very weird look on the temperature graph - pulsed up, and then went pulsed down.

    POC! Great to see ya bud! Here's a loop of East Asia. Lots of energy pushing through - similar to the January 19-21 period.
