    In watching the models run for the last couple days, I've seen this storm do everything from basically evaporate to make a run through the deep south (think MS, AL, GA!).

    Now, looking at the SREF for CVG, things are once again looking interesting for me (some truth to that AFD I posted earlier?):



    LOL! Love that one showing 22.5"! That is a nice healthy mean at 6" though more would always be better.

    The models for the storm that went over last night, were off by 200 miles. The coastal low went out to sea. Comically wrong. As far as I can tell, these things really are doing nothing else than suggesting an energy pulse is headed from west to east. They can't get the track right 6 HOURS OUT! It's not like this thing is hiding in the atmosphere. They're simply not credible any longer. Not a bit.

    As for the latest run, let me put on my Alex Trebek Voice. OOhh, Sorry, Sorry.

    LOL! This seems to be very true. I really wonder why this is and why this season is different than others...

    As for the latest SREF, Mean is now showing about 9.5" and we've been put under a Winter Storm Watch for "Accumulations greater than 4". LOL! Real specific, I know!

    Here's last night's Euro run:



    That 11.5 is literally right over my house. Fingers crossed for that or either a slight continued jog north!

    And here's the NAM:



    That gives me right about the Mean the SREF is showing.

    GEM shows 5-6":



    Obviously I'm cheering for Team Euro.

    One thing seems for sure, it is going to be COLD this upcoming week. Negative lows Wednesday and Thursday nights. So the snow that's going to fall is going to stick around for a while.

    We're currently sitting at 14 degrees with a high of 19.

    Guess I'll be burning through a bit of kerosene in the near term.

    Nice of Winter to finally show up half way through February.

    Mal, 12z GFS just came out:



    Looks a little further north than the 0z you posted earlier. This has me right around 6-7".

    And it appears to be lower totals for you. Sorry.

    We're officially under a Winter Storm Warning right now.

    Pros are calling for 4-6". I've got a gut feeling we could end up with more.

    SREF just updated and the Mean nudged up to just over 10" and that's, from what I understand, assuming 20:1 ratios.

    Just heard on NOAA radio there is currently a 40% chance of snow Friday-Saturday. No amounts specified. That will end up on top of what we're going to be getting with this.

    They were saying rain/snow on Saturday with highs at 40 but I don't see how it's going to get that warm with it being as balls cold as it will this entire week with a big snow pack on the ground.

    Latest from ILN. My house is literally, no exaggeration, on the 6-8"/8-10" line.

    At least you'll get something more than a 2 inch nuisance snow which has been my story for all but 2 storms.

    Yeah, no kidding. This will, no joke, be the first meaningful snow this Winter. We got about an inch or so a couple weeks ago and aside from a dusting or two, that's been it since the 5" before Thanksgiving (not Winter!).

    Latest from ILN:
    SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/...
    SNOW WILL OVERSPREAD THE AREA ON MONDAY. HIGH TEMPERATURES ON
    MONDAY ARE ONLY EXPECTED TO BE IN THE TEENS. DUE TO THIS THERE
    WILL BE HIGH SNOW RATIOS FOR THIS SYSTEM. MODELS HAVE COME INTO
    MUCH BETTER AGREEMENT WITH THIS SYSTEM HOWEVER THERE ARE STILL
    SOME MINOR DIFFERENCES IN STRENGTH AND NORTHWARD EXTENT OF THIS
    SYSTEM.

    THE HEAVIEST SNOW WITH THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BE ALONG AND
    SOUTH OF THE OHIO RIVER WITH SNOWFALL TOTALS DECREASING FURTHER TO
    THE NORTH. AROUND 6 TO 10 INCHES ARE EXPECTED ALONG AND SOUTH OF
    THE OHIO RIVER.
    NORTH OF INTERSTATE 70 LESS THAN AN INCH OF SNOW
    IS EXPECTED. IN BETWEEN THERE WILL BE A TIGHT GRADIENT IN SNOWFALL
    VALUES. A SHARP CUT OFF IN THE NORTHERN EXTENT OF THE SNOWFALL IS
    EXPECTED AND A SHARP GRADIENT IN SNOWFALL VALUES IS EXPECTED.

    WENT WITH A WINTER STORM WARNING FROM FRANKLIN COUNTY INDIANA
    EASTWARD TO HOCKING COUNTY OHIO. THESE LOCATIONS ARE IN THE 4 INCH
    WINTER STORM WARNING CRITERIA. DUE TO THE RECENT NORTHWARD TREND
    DECIDED TO HAVE A ROW OF COUNTIES NORTH OF THIS IN A WINTER
    WEATHER ADVISORY. MORE CONFIDENT IN THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY
    FROM FAYETTE COUNTY OHIO TO FAIRFIELD COUNTY OHIO WHERE WINTER
    WEATHER CRITERIA IS 2 INCHES. THERE IS LESSER CONFIDENCE IN THE
    ADVISORY FROM FAYETTE COUNTY INDIANA EASTWARD TO GREENE COUNTY
    OHIO WHERE THE ADVISORY CRITERIA IS 3 INCHES. AS MENTIONED HOWEVER
    WITH THE NORTHWARD SHIFT AND VALUES NEAR CRITERIA DECIDED TO GO
    WITH AN ADVISORY ACROSS THESE COUNTIES.

    SNOW WILL MOVE OUT OF THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT. THERE WILL BE A BRIEF
    LULL BEFORE ANOTHER SYSTEM MOVES THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO
    TUESDAY NIGHT. THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING LIGHT SNOW SHOWER ACTIVITY
    TO THE AREA AND COLDER AIR TO THE REGION. WIND CHILL VALUES WILL
    DROP BELOW ZERO TUESDAY NIGHT. MANY LOCATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO HAVE
    WIND CHILL VALUES LOWER THAN NEGATIVE TEN AND THEREFORE FUTURE
    FORECASTS WILL HAVE TO BE MONITORED FOR POTENTIAL WIND CHILL
    ADVISORIES.

    Yep, just transitioned from somewhat fine flakes to medium sized. We've got around an inch right now.

    KY is really getting hammered though.

    SREF Mean got cut by an inch last night.
