Lots of flickering occurring here in Bexley (near downtown Columbus). Reports of flickering in Pickerington as well.

Interesting...

A someone posted earlier in our thread, many obviously expected more for a time and are disappointed. It does help the disappointment some when you see the snow fall and blow even if not prodigious amounts.

Less than eventful here at the moment. Thin layer of ice/sleet from the flash freeze thats taking place but thats about it.

Having a really tough time believing any of those short range models after looking at returns. SE Ohio looks decent if they can get the cold going however...


I thought that I saw someone post that one of the forecast discussions mentioned that the Euro and Nam seem to be handling the cold better than the short range models...not sure about precip though.

Man, the dry air sure is eating away at the snow shield pretty quickly...That needs to stop now.

Columbus metro about to get hit hard via radar.

Power was flickering here as well ~30 minutes ago.

Snow/sleet line has been dancing across Columbus for a while. Struggling to move east.

Impossible to get a measurement with the incredible winds, but most likely sitting in the 2-3" range before it got dark. I took some photos about 30 minutes ago, but they are taking forever to upload for some reason. Many 6-8" drift areas around my property already. Should be some large drifts by the end of the night.

Can you briefly explain the correlation coefficient map? I have RadarScope, but I donít remember how to read that. Iím assuming closer to 1 indicates snow.

I love how GRlevel2 radar is in SAILS_3 mode as it updates every 1 minute 30 seconds. Pretty sweet.

my guess it has to do with the flash freezing acting like FZ rain, then getting coated in snow

I guess the wind gusts are doing a number. In Suburbia here, winds have a little harder time getting up to speed. Farm areas though? Boom..

Glad youíre getting it. I know itís been a long, lonely stretch up there in Prospect. Those of us whoíve been around a while are well acquainted with the donut hole that youíve had the misfortune of being under these past few years!

Iíve never paid attention to the scale, but where there is more ďactivityĒ (aka looks messy), that is sleet/mixed precipitation. The radar picks it up like hail in a thunderstorm. Where the map looks ďcleanĒ, that is pure snow.

That is my non-meteorological description and definition lol
