Snow, wind, and roads

11 Dec 2009 06:10 AM
The featured chart looks back at the recent blizzard experience for the state and compares IEM estimates of State Patrol road travel advisories and closures with statewide estimates of mean wind speed and NEXRAD reflectivity coverage. The chart shows that the peak in snowfall coverage came before the maximum wind intensities. You can also see a very clear relationship between the improvement of road condition with the decrease in wind speed on Wednesday evening (Dec 9th).

Good: 53
Bad: 14
