Winter Storm Report

Between 01:00 and 10:00 on the morning of the 16th (Sunday), approximately 6" snow fell, giving us a storm total of 8". It was fairly breezy most of the 16th, and snow cover ranged from 6-12" throughout the yard. We were on the southern fringe of the most intense snowfall; locations 10 to 20 miles to the northwest reported up to 12" of snow from the storm. Contrast that with the official storm snowfall of 6.7" at the airport (13 miles southwest of us).

The snow cover survived most of the following week, but began melting in earnest on Saturday the 22nd with rain and temperatures in the upper 40s. The continued rain on Sunday the 23rd, with the temperature topping out at nearly 52°, erased all but the most stubborn piles of snow.

So, no white Christmas at our house; though snow cover remains yet less than 10 miles north of our house (and up through Michigan).

We had about an inch of snow on the 27th (Thursday), but it was quickly erased by rainfall the following day.

This morning, we had a light, fluffy, quarter inch of snow by daybreak. It is sunny at the moment, through a veil of cirrostratus; but, the NWS has issued a Winter Storm Watch for later today through tomorrow (New Year's Day) morning:

A winter storm system will move across the region tonight allowing for periods of moderate to heavy snow. Snowfall will overspread the watch area late this afternoon or early this evening…with expected accumulations of 5 to 9 inches by Tuesday morning. Winds will increase from the north and northwest early Tuesday and will promote blowing and drifting snow through the day.
