Snow totals so far, as the storm continues…

A late-season Winter storm continues to impact the Miami Valley today.  The heaviest of the wet snow fell overnight, and made for a slushy and slick morning drive.  The snow is difficult to measure, because it has been compacting significantly, as it has a high water content.  I measured here at the station around 4am, and we had 2.5″… I went back to measure a couple hours later… and we only had 2″!  Moraine was actually one of the lower totals on the map… here’s a look at what others have reported so far today:

Of course, it’s still snowing, and we could pick up another 1 to 2 inches of snow by the end of the day.  You can see the main storm system is east of us, and the wrap-around snow will continue into the afternoon:

BUT the snow is expected to decrease in coverage later in the day.  Still, we couldn’t rule out a few snow showers through the night, and even through the day Tuesday.  On the back side of the storm, brisk northerly winds will continue… making it feel even colder than the forecast high of 34-degrees.  The trend will be to dry out as we head through mid-week… and I think you’ll like the forecast as we head toward the weekend!  A warming trend develops, and it looks like we could see highs in the upper 40s/low 50s for Saturday and Sunday!
