ABANDON YOUR CARS NOW!!!

I had hoped that I'd get through the winter without seeing any snow, but it looks like we're going to have a nice little storm starting later today and going into early Monday morning.

Just joy. Freaking joy.

The back to back blizzards of 2009 - 2010, both of which dumped 20+ inches of snow, finally broke my brain. I finally understand why Mom hated winter so much.

The concept of snow is pleasing. The reality is... not.

So far, here in Columbus, it has been snowing since around 7:00 a.m.  Pretty light so far, maybe 1/2 inch at most.  Supposed to do this all day, which will give us a few inches.  Good day to binge watch something and make a pot of soup...

Just back from running errands.   Roads are no big deal.  I've driven in worse.  Only thing is it reinforces my need to look at new tires for my car.  Just about due, so time to look at prices.

Take a look at Nokians. They're a Finnish company that has been making pretty much the best snow tires on the road for years. They've branched out into all season and summer only in the last couple of years. They're trying to make their name in non-snow tires so you can find some pretty killer deals. I put 4 of their high performance all seasons on my R32 in April, and so far they've been about identical to the Continentals that I replaced. Noise, and traction on dry, wet and a light dusting is about the same; but I found them on sale at Walmart.com for $65 each less than the Contis. They were also $50 a tire less then my shop could get them for wholesale... Free shipping to the shop was nice too.

Took Robert to get his driver's license this morning.  His was the last road test before they said the roads were too slick.

And yes, he passed.

It started snowing about noon yesterday. The roads turned into absolute garbage, which surprised me. I expected they would have already been salted beforehand. It looks like at least 8" out there, if not more. More snow and ice on the way, until Sunday night.

That really made me laugh.

It snowed.  Here.  West of Denver.  Again.  2-3 inches, just enough to show the rabbit tracks.

NW IL here.  I estimate about a half inch right now. Snowing steadily, side streets are pretty crappy.  My daughter reported cars in ditch, coming back from Rockford late morning.

Just shoveled 2+ off the drive.

Coming down pretty good now, probably going to get more than they initially forecasted. Yep, just looked, may get up to 5 inches.

Iĺll do all the sidewalks tomorrow using the snowblower and clear the drive again.

Snow drives business at my work so this is good. Hiking will be nice also, not so grey and blah in the woods.

Louisiana weather per HeroHog, Reply #14:

Interesting graphs.

But:

Quote
Pressure  29.99 in
Visibility  10 miles
Clouds  Clear
...
Etc.


Anyone know why they no longer state whether the barometer is rising, falling, or steady?

I've noticed that for the past couple of years.

It used to be that rising, falling, or steady was a primary predictor of short-term conditions.

A given value of pressure is not a predictive number and basically useless unless I'm setting an altimeter.  It's a descriptive number, but not a predictive one unless you know what the pressure was, say, an hour ago.

What gives?

I put Nokian "Entyre" tires on my Focus last year.  They were cheap (at walmart.com) and they might be the best tires I've ever owned, especially on slick icy-snowy roads.  (they suck on just dry bare ice, but I think all tires do unless they're studded)  I offered to buy a set for my daughter a few months ago.

How do ya like the Temp spread/Yo-yo?

I guess that's unusual for you near sea level, with lots of water around.  But we get diurnal variations of 35░ and more quite routinely.  Thin dry air (less thermal mass), and a mile less atmosphere for the sunlight to penetrate to warm things up in daytime makes for a yo-yo ride. See:

https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=39.7836&lon=-105.1675&unit=0&lg=english&FcstType=graphical

Tomorrow it will go from 18░ to about 40░ which isn't too extreme, but the air is pretty wet right now, so it's got some thermal mass to it.  We've only got about 80% of the air up here than you have. Normal barometer hereabouts is only about 630 mmHg or so.  Sea level nominal is 760 mmHg (29.92").

But I guess nobody is willing to educate me on how come they don't say where the barometer is going any more.  I wrote to NWS about that, no answer.

Must be the fracken alien masters don't want us to know where the barometer is heading.  Might cause worldwide panic or something.

One can dig up history of barometric pressure variations, but what I'm asking is why they don't simply put "rising, steady, or falling," after the number.  Doesn't seem to be a big software problem
