Storm Clouds Gathering

Stormy Pattern For Sure

On this Valetine's Night, the weather will cooperate as Cupid can fire his arrows without any wind to blow them off their target and without any rain to rust their tips. Temperatures will be in the chilly 30s if you are taking your main squeeze out to dinner!

Looking ahead, my pet European model is suggesting the hyper active storm pattern we are in will last until the first of March. By hyper, I am referring to a lot of wind and by storm I mean generous rains and or snows.

Last night’s blog spelled out the likelihood of a rain to snow storm for Sunday and Monday. I will add that Sunday’s rains will be gusty and could even be spiced with thunder and lightning

If the rain gets in quick enough, a period of ice would be possible especially in southern Ohio on Sunday morning. Cold arctic blusters are sure to change the rain to snow by Monday and Tuesday when we should get a “nice” snowfall.

After that storms are lined up in the I-formation for another 10 days, coming roughly every 3 days. Add it all up and we are looking at another 3” or more of water which will bring our winter total to near 15”. By winter, I refer to meteorological winter which runs December thru February. This would be at the upper end of my winter forecast of 12”-15” and some 66% above the normal of 9”. No wonder the drought is history!
