Snowfall totals from a messy Wednesday morning

Cbus Weather Nerd

Good Wednesday Night,

The wintry precip is done for now, and we have had quite a warm-up over this evening as temps have surged into the middle to upper 40s.

Early this morning we did have quite an impressive dumping of snow, especially from near the Dayton area and just north of Columbus.  We even had some of the more impressive snow rates with thundersnow being reported this morning too!

Snowfall totals being reported from this morning:

These include the wintry mix that was falling with sleet and freezing rain as well in most cases.  Many of you reported in snowfall totals with the same comment about the heaviness or wetness of the snow.  Yes, this was very high water content snow.

  • 6-7″  Bellefontaine (Darran)
  • 6″  West Delaware County (Amber)
  • 4-6″  Clark County (Hope)
  • 5.25″  Danville (Donna)
  • 5″  Sparta (Connie)
  • 5″  Jelloway (Wes)
  • 5″  Powell (Al)
  • ~5″  Mt. Vernon (Chuck)
  • 4.5″  Homer (Jean)
  • 4.5″  Sunbury (Davey & Oakley)
  • 4-5″  Delaware County (Erin)
  • 4-5″  Ohio (Rick)
  • 3″  Clintonville (Pam)
  • 2″  Gahanna (Mardia)
  • T  Glouster (Susie)
  • Rain 1″+  Kim (Portsmouth)
  • 0″  Waverly (Linda)
  • 0″  Londonderry (Marlen)
  • 0″  Chauncey (Marilyn)

Below are some other reports around the area:

  • 5″  Delaware
  • 5″  Marysville
  • 4.5″  Dublin
  • 4″  Bellefontaine
  • 4″  Westerville
  • 2.8″  Columbus (KCMH – Airport)
  • 2″  Heath
  • 2″  Lancaster 
  • 0.5″  Circleville
  • 0.5″  Washington Court House 

In general, the forecast totals worked out pretty well for this event.  The timing of the changeover really helped out in most locations, except to the south where more rain occurred than forecast, which impacted the totals a bit.

As I mentioned last night, we would have some isolated higher totals in the 2-4″ band, but I did not want to put that on the map as it would be wordy, and confusing.  But in general most locations in the purple did confirm, and there were some higher convective totals.

In fact, we had some thundersnow and that is where heavier snowfall was reported.  What is incredible is that we will end up picking more than an inch of precip. (melted wintry mix and rainfall) during the day today.  We are now almost equal to the rainfall we had last February when we picked up 3″ above normal.
