Tired of tracking rain storms.....i'd rather flip the coin on this clipper pattern than roll the dice hoping for snake eyes for a bigger storm

A February clipper train has been alright here. It gives us a bunch of 1 and 2 inch snows that makes our season snow total look appreciable when in reality it isn't lol. But only a big storm can save this season. I don't know how to look up season totals but I can't be sitting on more than 3 inches.

Thanks for the link ohiobuckeye. I had been curious as well if such a page existed. Sadly, we are at less than 10 inches total where I live the past two winters combined.

You'll think this is sad, but after last season's non-winter, I decided to cut my grass a little shorter than normal the last cutting this fall... so that when it snowed an inch or two, it would completely cover up my property... and give off that true wintery feel of a nice blanketing snow, no grass showing, etc. Well, it hasnt worked yet because I've still yet to even get enough snow to do that. blink.gif

(On a side note, after last nights rain, my weather station sits at 5.7 inches of rain during the first 20 days of January. Who would have ever guessed you'd get that much precip in January and no snow)

Oh heck no. I tend to love clippers! Not necessarily 1 inch or less ones, but some of my bigger surprise snows came from clippers...

I remember one in college down in Cedarville back in the mid 2000s. Can't remember the year but we had a clipper that wasn't expected to do much but it just kept dropping snow. Ended up around 5 inches plus I think.

I'm a big fan of clippers. From time to time you can have one drop 4 or 5 inches in a hurry. Plus, the ratios tend to be very efficient. If we get a few over the next couple of weeks, it'll start to feel like winter again.

ECM still on board, probably closer to the 6z GFS than 12z on amounts with ratios

My thoghts too. We tend to get over performers with clippers in WPa. Bring them on. Less thread the needle. We rarely get 6+inch storms so over performing clippers hold me over.

This was the closest thing as to not mix in both clippers and keep the previous LES out

It would be nice if they had a map version that could filter out LES just to show synoptic accumulations
