So who all's getting rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow from this latest one?

Winter Storm watches are posted here already for Tuesday for 3-5" of the white stuff.

I'll believe it when it gets here. That's a decent snow event for us in this area and they don't generally nail amounts like that 2 days in advance here. Up until this afternoon it was predicted to be a non event for us.

Warning Description: Winter Storm Watch

Warning Date: 9:27 PM EST on January 9, 2011

WarningSum:...Winter Storm Watch Remains In Effect From Late Monday Night
Through Late Tuesday Night...

Warning Message:A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from late Monday night
through late Tuesday night.
As low pressure approaches...snow will overspread the Ohio Valley
from southwest to northeast. The snow will begin around daybreak
Tuesday and quickly spread into central Ohio during the morning.
This storm has the potential to produce snow accumulations of 3
to 5 inches before ending Tuesday night.
Remember...a Winter Storm Watch means conditions are favorable
for a hazardous winter weather event in or close to the watch
area.
Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or your favorite source of
weather information for the latest updates. Additional details can
also be found at National Weather Service Forecast Office - Wilmington Ohio.

I am well west of you guys and typically we get 50 degree weather and rain. But at this time of year it is not unheard of getting snow in the lowlands and we got some on Sunday, But this snow has been hit or miss at my home we got a inch and half and 15 miles south of us they got none and 10 miles north of us was the same story with no snow.

When we got the snow it was right at freezing and as the night has progressed we are getting down into the low 20's. Boy am I glad that my employer gave all of us YaKTraks, they really make walking the dogs a lot easier as they slip on your shoes and look like miniature tire cables for your shoes and I walk my dogs every night rain, snow or the moon and stars out.

We finally got a meager inch! I'm still hoping for a good snow yet,
but even an inch is enough to rip around in with my small MTD
lawn tractor!:)

Maybe we'll get some more snow later... I'm about ready for it.:D

Were supposed to get anywhere from a dusting to 2 inches of snow here then freezing rain. The ice is supposed to be anywhere from one tenth to three tenths of an inch. It is going to be a long night.

We get the typical snow in the evening then it warms up and then we get the rain. We are currently getting the snow tonight and then this will change over during the day Wednesday and we will be getting the rain. I already arranged not to go to work Wednesday as since the rain change over is to be in the early morning in Seattle but where I live 90 miles north of Seattle the change over to rain will not happen until mid morning and we are predicted to get freezing rain in early afternoon and then by early evening we will get regular rain. Here is the weather report from a Seattle TV station.

Snow moves into Seattle area, mainly gone by morning | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News | Local & Regional

We ended up with 3" yesterday and picked up another 1" or so today. So the forecast turned out accurate. Roads are all good shape with the accumulation spread out over a longer period of time. We are however still under a Level 1 snow emergency manly due to continuing snow showers and drifting in rural areas of the county.

That freezing rain is a tough thing to deal with. Enjoy that day off!
The weather man was wrong again!!!!!!:mad: The freezing rain hit here at 2:30 A.M. last night and the regular rain hit at around 4:00 A.M. and the snow was all gone by 8:00 A.M.

I ended up going in to work as I did not want to burn a day of my reserve vacation. I save 2 weeks a year of vacation for reserve and use the rest for my regular vacations. I have not yet used any of my reserve vacation this year and it is a long time to memorial day before we get a 3 day weekend with my employer.
