Upping the snowfall totals a little
In the last entry I talked about how these clipper systems pull north when the time gets closer, and sure enough the models are all showing this as well, so I a tailoring the numbers slightly. I was calling for around 2" to the south, and still calling for the 2", but the the extreme south, 2-4". The central part of the area, along I-70, I was calling for 1", now calling for 1-3". The snowfall totals will quickly fall off the farther north and east you go, so counties like Auglaize, Logan, and Champaign may only see a dusting up to 1". The worst part of this storm will be its timing, it will be dropping the snow right before people leave for work or school, it will be interesting to see how well the road crews can keep up with the quick clip of this system.
Speaking of snow and school, did you guys hear Kasich is increasing the calamity days for schools back to 5 days? What are your thoughts on that? Personally I think it is necessary, I grew up in Darke County where the weather can get horrible. Safety first. Just because there are the five days there does not mean they are all always used. Shoot me your thoughts on it, might get a good discussion going. Have a good one!
