My storm total is 4.2 inches. Not bad for a storm that models a couple days ago said was going to miss us. Im ready for the next storm tomorrow night!

That's great! Can we double our snow pack? The NAM says maybe.

Took some pictures yesterday before and after shoveling the light and fluffy powder.  This was 30:1 ratio snow and it blew and drifted quite easily creating some beautiful drifts. That’s one of the pe

This might be the funniest thing yet. 🤣    

Pics from mom in desoto county MS. Looks like it might be lower end of forecast there, but 4-5” and still snowing. Why does she take better pics than me LOL

Going to be wild! Can't wait to see how much you end up with.

I missed out on the earlier heavy stuff but it’s pounding now.  It should be ripping all night long.  Hoping for 8” or more.

We’re getting heavy snow out here in northern St Clair county off of Huron right now, picked up over 2” in the past 90 minutes. You can see a narrow band coming off the south end of the lake and that’s what’s been hitting us the past hour or so. Pretty intense.

Still no power at either of my parents' places. My mom's place in Houston proper is now 49*F inside. Current temp at KIAH is 20*F. The all-time record there (5*F) is in danger as the forecasted low is 6 currently.

Its ripping here as well. Winds are also gusty w blowing and drifting snow. I must have at least 2 inches here already since it started. I like the fact that it is a frigid snowstorm. Temps holding currently at 14F.

The outages are voluntary and have been dictated by ERCOT. 

I do not envy whoever is running the Twitter accounts of the energy companies today. They are handling this horribly and so is the state.

The snow has ended here and turned out to be a very nice storm.  5 1/2in is the amount I'm going with, it's quite possible that I have more than that.  It's very hard to measure in an open rural area like mine when it's drifted like this. Warsaw, MO about a half hour from my house has 8in reports. Regardless, with the snow combined with record breaking cold this stretch of weather will be talked about for years to come.  Oh ya and more snow possible Wednesday, more than enough to make this weather enthusiast happy.

Just saw a report of 8.9 at Midway!! They may beat O'hare for once

Snowing steadily in Buffalo Grove but only a couple inches. Crazy that I could go 15 miles south along the lake to Evanston where they already have 8 inches.

MDW has updated their report of 11.9" at 9:26pm and its been snowing heavily there since.  I just went out and measured and surprised to only have 3.5".  I'm not sure how much ORD has officially but it does appear that eastern/central/southern Cook has been the epicenter of this event.  There is a 13" report in both Oaklawn/Park Forest area and Evanston has 12".  Those areas are locked in to getting close to 18" I think.  Man, that band just doesn't want to move inland any farther.  It's just parked due N/S right over the Edens Expwy.  It never really moved past the I-294 corridor.  It's too bad but it is, what it is.

I believe all models ended up dropping at least a bit of snow here, maybe even up to 1.5", but the snow never made it here.

LOT's update suggesting 20" totals which makes sense given the radar trends and the character of tonight's LEHS/LES....congrats to those in Chicago proper area.  It's not often the entire city gets hammered by LES and those up by Lake/McHenry county miss out.  People are going to be digging out their cars for days.  I think I may take a drive down into the city in a couple days just to witness what it looks like over there.  I'm sure the mounds of snow are at epic proportions.

endota to McHenry line. Lake enhancement is and
has been ongoing for a few hours with strong confluence noted
with buoys showing northeast winds gusting to 30-35 mph, with
northwesterlies just inland. The cooperative observer near Midway
recently reported an exceptional 2.9 inches of snow in just about
100 minutes. Think the writing is on the wall at this point given
radar trends that the jackpot area for this event will probably be
2-3 miles either side of a roughly Winnetka/Evanston to Midway
line. When all is said an done (after lingering lake effect
diminishes later tomorrow afternoon), imagine we`ll see a handful
of snowfall reports pushing 20 inches in this corridor.

Looks like MI peeps are getting pounded with deep moisture ATM... @jaster220, how are you doing there???

Piling up here. Took the I-94 alt route home for the first 12 miles to avoid getting trapped on the x-way if there's a wreck.

I will say that it's the worst conditions I've driven in since GHD-2. This being at night was even more interesting. Drifting was pretty bad and some were 12+ deep on the road. Good thing it's lighter weight snow similar to LES. Had this been a wetter snow it would've been almost impassable at points and I have AWD with decent ground clearance. Felt like I was operating a snowmobile more than a car most of the time.

This is also a bit more intense vs GHD-2 which had less wind and was longer duration moderate rates. Some of this is at least 1.5"/hr stuff. With winds it was legit "near bliz" conditions in more open areas. Now this is more like it for the Mitt!

Realized I didn't really talk amounts, lol. I pulled in my driveway scraping bottom. A quick measurement looked 6-7" which makes sense with my ride clearance. Shoveled just a quick bit on the back deck and looked out an hour later and couldn't tell it had been touched. Estimating 8-9" a bit after 1 am.

I'm happy for you bud!  You finally scored a great hit this season and its coming during a time in the season where it's not to late that you can enjoy the new snowfall for a little while.  As you said, this storm has had multiple facets that compare it to the good ol' storms we've had in years past.  I can't wait to see what the landscape will look like today when daylight emerges.  Enjoy the fresh powder!

Not really, unfortunately....snow has really let up...might be able to scrap an inch through today and come close to a 5" total, maybe?  The flow was to strong out of the N that didn't allow the band to push farther than say ORD and points west.  It was the quintessential characteristics of LES where things set up only a few miles away from me.  The bands set up shop and pounded for hours upon hours about 5 miles east of my place.

 

Just in: ORD picked up a record 6.1" for the day yesterday....

Including the morning 1.1" it looks like this will end up being 9-10" here. Great storm! Ready 4 more.

Only about 3 inches overnight for a storm total of maybe 5 inches.

Like @Tommentioned that lake effect just didn’t get far enough inland for us. Interestingly, areas around south Milwaukee/Racine/Kenosha got in on the LES with close to a foot. As you go south lake countie missed out but once you get back into Cook the 12+ numbers return. Midway got 17.7 inches as of 6am!

Actually, northeast parts of Cook got buried as well.  Places due north and west of ORD didn't do as good.  The fickle nature of LES was a clear example of the hits and misses.

My goodness, there is a report out of Evanston of 18" with a snow depth of 28"!!!  Holy smokes!  A report just south of downtown of 16.9" of snow with a 25" snow depth.  These type of snow depths haven't occurred in decades.  Just incredible.

That's gotta be amazing. Now, for folks who aren't wx geeks it's good it came in "chunks and pieces" instead of one massive bliz but still. Has to be causing some issues for parked cars and such. I don't see Niko chiming in this morning yet but I think Detroit proper may also be working their way towards some nice depth. I set the bar pretty high for them when siting Jan '99 which hit a full 24" at DTW. Pretty sure the only greater depth was the all-time max of 26" at the old downtown site back in 1900 or 1908. Would have to re-check that to be sure. Even harder for that region to climb the steep hill to deep snow cover but they do it best during very cold spells/winters like what we have in progress.

Snow has settled and blown down to around 3-3.5 in in a lot of places. Not the overwhelming blizzard you'd expect. Still cold and wonderful, but nothing no one hasn't seen before, either, if I'm honest. Still, SUPER grateful for snow!!

Forecast for part two, I'm staying on the lean side at 3 to 5 inches. Looks to start early morning here.

Forecast for part two, I'm staying on the lean side at 3 to 5 inches. Looks to start early morning here.

You're doing better this year than Nebraska has in certain winters haha

A lot of snow fell here in SEMI. It was very hard to measure due to high snow drifts (some were huge, close to 3ft), so I tried my best to find a location where there was an accurate accumulation. Near 9.8" was what I measured in mby, but seemed more like near a foot to me. Anyways,  I called NOAA and they told me 9.7" fell in Macomb and 8.3" in Detroit, so it makes sense in terms of my measurements.

Btw: The second pic is close to 2.5 feet deep! As you can see, my snowblower had a hard time going through large drifts. Great storm!

I guess I could chime in with the tiny snow amount of 0.7” that I got last evening. It was a very dense snow with pixie dust not stacking up much at all despite a temperature a little below 0°f , which resulted in somewhat of a low ratio snow! Gauge catches and one core sample melted to 0.09” liquid, but another core had at least 0.11” which probably is to high.

Realized I didn't really talk amounts, lol. I pulled in my driveway scraping bottom. A quick measurement looked 6-7" which makes sense with my ride clearance. Shoveled just a quick bit on the back deck and looked out an hour later and couldn't tell it had been touched. Estimating 8-9" a bit after 1 am.

🤣 I was about to write to you... "Hey Jaster, what about snowfall amounts?"

Had to share a picture of the sunrising over the snow pack.

Spectacular pic amigo. You definitely have to turn this into a "Postcard" and/ or hang it up somewhere in your home, so people can see this when they walk inside. 👍

Good luck with the snow tomorrow. Snow on snow is always a good thing. The 18z GFS doesn't look to bad.

Thank you. I see you scored well yesterday! Looks like you might tack on a few more inches this week.
