Yes, it is January. Yes, it snows and is cold typically. But the forecast begs the question.... 'How often do we see the combination of THIS much snow and cold'?
-Only twice (in 1983 and 1994) have we experienced the cold that is in the forecast for Mon-Wed this week. That's in 140+ years of records. We will likely stay below 0 for 48+ straight hours. Frostbite can happen in less than 15 minutes in those temperatures.
-Only twice have we had two 5"+ snow events within 4 days of each other in Toledo. Never had two 8"+ events in that span. The latter is possible following the snow on Sunday.
-According to recording keeping, Toledo has NEVER seen the combination of this snow and the expected cold through Wed. That's 140+ years.
You'll excuse us if you see a lot of posts/warnings the next few days. It's serious stuff people. Please share this post.
