Beautiful looking out across the farm this morning with a little snow cover and some fog.  Here is KC statistics for the halfway point of meteorological winter, lets make it a better second half.

Halfway report: Yesterday (1/15) we officially made it halfway through meteorological Winter. Thus far we are 6.7 degrees above normal & currently the 6th warmest on 134-year record. We've had 1.01" of precip for the 27th driest. and we've had 2.4" of snow...the 29th least snowy.

At least in the area of precipitation it seems to have been plentiful in Kentucky but I bet December was a pretty warm one.

The 70 degree occurrences happened over the course of last month rather than them landing on one odd day (isn't that more the normal thing?). Also having 70 on Christmas is, definitely not the same thing as having 70 first week of December.

I've been up since 7am (it's as overcast as can be), we haven't had "CLR" in a couple days. Ashland Airport at 9am was saying it with this coming on radar. lol Someone should do a quality check on the sensor.

What's your take on the Tues. clipper up this way Tom. Looks like the GFS is the southern outlier atm.

3-6” with possibly more if the lake influences totals up your way.  Nice refresher on the way for the trials.

Latest 0z GEFS showing the southern stream potential as we close out JAN.... @OmahaSnowFan not so kind for you but others who have been missed (INDY and MBY) are in the corridor...btw, I love how you post 1 off GFS long range runs like they actually verify.  Take a gander at the GEFS as they do suggest a more conducive pattern for snow potential to close out JAN.

The CFSv2 is trending better and showing the colder pattern retrograding west in the later parts of the month.

Btw I’m not the only one that’s noticed NW flow dominating the pattern the rest of the month.

Not to mention, this isn’t some fluke run. The operational models have shown the same general pattern on the majority of their runs. I can pull them if you’d like?

I guess when Tom says most of us, it means everyone except Omaha, NE.

Omadome!!!

I think it’s time to admit that for whatever reason, the long range models and methods like LRC haven’t worked the majority of this fall and winter.

Thus why we’ve seen records smashed for warmth and no snow to way below average snow for the majority of this forum.

Hope so.  Looks dry.  Haven’t had measurable snow since Jan 6th.  And now looking at about a 2 week stretch in the middle of January without any.  That’s really bad and almost unprecedented for here.  Especially with the temps cooperating.

No melting here today as clouds and fog have kept temps well under the forecasted high of 34, currently 25.  The week ahead shows my snow getting nuked on Tuesday before more artic air moves in Wednesday including lows near 0 Thursday.  Very impressive shot of cold given there wont be any snow cover at that time.  Posable clipper train riding the edge of the artic air later next weekend.

Changed from heavy sleet to wet flakes. It's a mix so it may be an hour or so before real accumulation.

Tom,

 

Good work, buddy. Nailed the storm for the 14th to 16th, here in KC officially I think KCI had 3.2 inches. I recorded 4.3 inches on the NE side of KC. Could have been much more, but, of course, we live in KC and something always has to mess up a big snow storm. We had .35 inches of rain on the front end of the storm. That could have been 4 more inches of snow.

 

Anyhow, yesterday morning had heavy snow and wind gust to 35mph, quite the winter scene!!!

 

Next up....clipper machine and some shots of some very cold air.

We have an accumulation out there, but there hasn't been any considerably heavy snow to my standards.

At most a couple inches in Ashland.

I have some friends that live in Akron, OH (just SE of CLE) and last evening a very intense band moved through that was dumping snow at the rate of 2"+/hr.  It's amazing to see how these Nor' Easter's have a life of their own and can tap such vast amounts of moisture from the ATL.  I saw a snow report of 5.5" in 2 hours near Buffalo, NY from 11:00pm - 1:00am.  My goodness, I'd love to experience one of those bands for hours on end.

Meantime, a weak wave came through last evening and dropped another 0.2" of snow officially at ORD.  These little episodes of snow are fun to watch but I'm yearning for that big one.  I know its coming...just a matter of when... let's go mother nature!  So far, ORD has picked up 4.7" which is about 1" BN for the month and a departure of 6.3" for the season.  One clipper can make that up in a hurry so let's see how the remainder of this month unfolds.  I can see how this season is evolving and knowing how the past few years have ended up being back-loaded seasons (for the most part), esp around here, my gut says that we still have a lot of winter left to go.

@Clinton, you asked me about the 25th/26th system that's due and it is certainly showing up on the models.  I think this one is more or less going to be another one of those interesting systems that have the potential to phase with both streams.  We have been having difficulty doing so in previous cycles but now that we will have some blocking in place and a better flow there is a 50/50 chance to see this system phase just like the previous one did.  Another Hybrid??  The 0z Euro/Canadian are both showing a strong clipper system while the GFS is a tad weaker.  Let's see how the models handle the energy that cuts off in the SW.   This was one of the systems (of the two) that I was predicting to target the MW and Eastern Sub the Week of the 23rd.  BTW, the ensembles are looking quite intriguing to finish off the month.  My original call of at least 1 or 2 storms to hit KC and your area before months end are looking better.

The overnight low here was 17 the temperatures have been rising since 2 AM and now it is up to 26 here with cloudy skies. The old snow cover here is now showing its age. While it has been a long time since we have had a new snow fall the old snow on the back roads are now just a sheet of hard pack snow and ice. I am now down to 3.5" of snow on the ground here.

Looks like a swing and a miss up here on the clipper tomorrow unless the GFS beats them all. Trails are beat up pretty bad from the insane traffic this past weekend.

My nws point forecast says 3-5" tomorrow. That seems to be all in on the loner gfs. I'd be happy with a couple inches.

What I shared specifically was your posts that said "post storm 14-16th." There's no active pattern of fun storm tracking showing up on any of the models, unless you love clippers bringing an inch or two at a time. Nor cold rivaling last year's sustained 2 week outbreak when records were broken. Cold shots? Sure. Followed by warm shots and rinse and repeat. "Verge of something special"? Huh?

I do think I have realized something though in reference to your past posts. It appears I've been misunderstanding you when you say "the majority of this forum" or "most of this sub", you actually meant the majority of the number of people on here, not the majority of the area that this forum covers. That clears it up considering the majority of the posters here are close to the Great Lakes where yes it will be much colder and full of clippers.

I'll also take note that when you use the hyperbole you always do, it's just your excitement and positive outlook that's coming through in your posts and to take it with a grain of salt.

I'm curious to know why the models are so different with the temperature across Iowa Friday morning as the ridge moves overhead.  The GFS is predicting -7º in Cedar Rapids.  The NAM is predicting -5º.  Meanwhile, the Euro continues to predict -20s across Iowa, including -24º in Cedar Rapids.

Oz Canadian has -30s for much of central and eastern Iowa for Friday's mins.  I'd love to see it, but doubt it comes to fruition.  Teens and a 20 below here or there likely, but that would be city records galore if that comes true. State record is -47 I believe

MJO forecast for the rest of January.

I'm seeing some interesting EPS/GEFS members for early next week in and around your area and into the OHV.  Let's see how the models handle that cut-off energy.  What are your thoughts for end of the month?  It appears the models are heading towards the west coast trough-like pattern and Upper MW cold pattern and a reversal in the PNA.  This should set up a more active SW Flow pattern.

Temps surge into the low 40's today and will prob nuke the rest of the snow pack.  Prob a good idea to take down my lights and decor outside today.  It was a nice ride to have some snow OTG since about New Year's till today.  Time to rebuild it and hopefully cash in on the NW Flow clipper regime late this weekend into early next week.

There was (is) a coating of ice from yesterdays freezing mist. There remains 3.5" of a snow/ice combination on the ground but there are some thin spots as well with some ground showing. There now has been 1" of more of snow cover at Grand Rapids for 22 days in a row and a total of 29 for the season so far. The 30 year average is 67 days of snow cover the most on record is 124 in 1903/04 and the least on record is 23 in 1982/83. The last year there was 54. The overnight low here was 27 and at this time it is cloudy and 30.

I also noticed some of the ensembles trying to put together a storm here a week from today.  The last cycle did produce a 1/4 inch of rain here with the frontal passage but the storm really got it's act together over the Ohio Valley.  Sometimes though those troughs can carve out further west in Jan and Feb so I'm keeping an eye on it.  As far as the end of the month the 0z Euro Control shows a nice storm but temps are marginal, if we can block in the cold it could be a nice one.

Ya, I've been seeing some interesting runs from the EC over the past couple days.  I think with a -EPO/-WPO and neutral to -PNA there would be enough cold air in the pattern to produce a winter storm in that late month timeframe.  It sucks to see the NAO/AO go back + thought.

Looks like we stay BN for the rest of this month, unfortunately, dry comes along w/ it for mby, unless something changes. Still have some snows here and there, so that makes it look a little wintry. Bitter cold air spills in next week.   Still remains dry, although, I think there are a few systems to watch that might trigger some snowfall here in S MI.

Btw: I saw that SMI missed out on a major winterstorm. Izza was just 40miles to my east. Ouch!! So close! That darn H.P Area that was on top of us really kept it from moving any further west, but D**n, that was too close. Flurries were seen falling in downtown Detroit from that storm. Anyhow, time to move on to the next potential!

Note: EC by weeks end could be looking at an all snowevent and could be major winterstorm for the coastline. A weaker storm for Thursday's time frame, could be followed by a much stronger system for Friday into Saturday. So, a one - two punch for them coming up.....

Cold with no snow outside light lake effect for the foreseeable future.  Depressing.  Snowpack dwindling.  No measurable snow 2 weeks now and counting.  Where's the storms?  Nothing coming except some weak clippers, maybe?  On to February?  You'd think in this pattern we'd get some snow here, but nope,  too dry, even for LES.

The lack of lake effect is something else. Same as last year up here. Not as bad, but far from normal farther north in the Keweenaw while they have had plenty, still not up to normal standards. Especially with the cold shots that have migrated through.

Even today....clipper moves through large temp/ lake temp differences. NNW wind and even in the UP maybe 1-3" of lake effect after the clipper. Not saying always, but that should spell 5-10" if not more off the lake.

Getting some more LES off of Devils Lake currently. It's always cool to watch that on radar.

low to mid 60s out in central Nebraska about 70 miles west of here. We've made it 55.6 IMBY so far and that's the current temp. It's always weird to walk outside when you see snow on the ground, and for it to be warm enough for just a tshirt.

Quite the change coming tonight though as the cold front moves through and keeps us in the teens for highs Wednesday and Thursday before we warm back up.
