December 23, 2022 - Winter Storm

An Arctic cold front swept through the area shortly before Midnight December 23rd. Low pressure along this front tracked over Lake Erie early in the morning on December 23rd and rapidly intensified through the day while slowly lifting northeast across Ontario. With the frontal passage rain changed to snow with temperatures dropping from the upper 30s and lower 40s to sub-zero in about 8 hours. A period of moderate to heavy snow with rates briefly up to 1��� per hour occurred behind the frontal passage into the morning of December 23rd before becoming much lighter by midday. The period of snow and rapidly falling temperatures led to a flash freeze and icy conditions on area roadways. While the falling snow became lighter through the daytime hours of December 23rd, winds began increasing during the pre-dawn hours and occasionally gusted over 40 MPH through the day. At Mansfield Lahm Regional airport a peak gust of 45 MPH was measured 3 times between 7:22 AM and 1:33 PM December 23rd. Sporadic tree damage and power outages resulted. Wind gusts very gradually subsided into December 24th, though gusts didn���t drop below 30 MPH until that evening. This led to a prolonged period of widespread blowing and drifting snow beginning early in the morning December 23rd and continuing through the afternoon and evening, with some patchy blowing and drifting snow continuing all the way through Christmas Eve. The greatest impact from this storm was to travel due to the flash freeze and extensive blowing and drifting snow, to go along with low visibility. Numerous minor accidents, slide-offs and disabled vehicles were reported throughout the area on December 23rd and 24th, with several of these accidents resulting in at least minor injury. Local news media reported that the number of disabled vehicles put a strain on emergency services on December 23rd. The Richland County Sheriff declared a Level 2 Snow Emergency the morning of December 23rd which was not lifted until the next day. This strongly discourages all non-essential travel in the county.. Wind chills plunged below 0 by 5 AM December 23rd and did not rise above 0 until the morning of December 26th. A minimum wind chill of -36F was reported at Mansfield Airport at 11:52 AM December 23rd. A number of burst pipes were reported across northern and central Ohio due to this cold, with temperatures remaining in the single digits until Christmas morning. A trained spotter in Shelby measured 6.0��� of snow from this storm, with 2.9��� measured at Mansfield Lahm Airport. Other select reports include a CoCoRaHS observer measuring 4.0��� of snow near Charles Mill Lake east of Mansfield, with another CoCoRaHS observer measuring 3.5��� of snow near Lexington. A trained spotter measured 3��� of snow just west of downtown Mansfield.

Strong west to northwest winds occurred behind the front. Winds gusted in excess of 40 mph much of the day. A peak gust of 59 mph was reported at Mansfield Lahm Airport (Richland County) with 56 mph gusts at the Findlay Airport (Hancock County) and Mount Vernon Airport (Knox County). A 54 mph wind gust was measured at the Marion County Airport. Some power outages were reported.

June 29, 2012

A Derecho developed over northern Indiana during the early afternoon hours of June 29th. This line of storms intensified as it moved across Central Ohio later in the afternoon. Extensive damage was reported in Hancock, Wyandot, Marion, Morrow and Knox Counties. Lesser amounts of damage were reported just to the north of these counties. The damage from this Derecho is comparable to the damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ike in 2008. Hundreds of thousands of people lost power for as long as a week. Power was not fully restored in Hancock County till July 6th. Thousands of trees and hundreds of utility poles were downed by this line of storms. Hundreds of homes and buildings were damaged by winds estimated to be more than 80 mph. A 84 mph wind gust was measured in Findlay. Automated sensors at area airports failed to record peak gusts because of power outages. Dozens of roads and street had to be closed because of fallen trees and power lines. Significant crop losses are also expected. Clean up costs were significant from this storm. Clean up efforts were hampered by an ongoing heat wave with afternoon temperatures as warm as 100 degrees.

January 1, 2005

Heavy rain and runoff from snowmelt caused widespread lowland flooding in Ashland, Knox, Morrow, Richland Counties during the first two-thirds of January. January 2005 was the wettest January ever at Mansfield Lahm Airport with 6.08 inches of precipitation during the month. Rainfall totals from Knox County included; 7.51 inches at Greer; 7.97 inches at Fredericktown; 8.28 inches at Danville and 9.99 inches at Centerburg all in Knox County. In addition to this rain, extensive snowpack existed over northern Ohio at the beginning of the month. Temperatures in the 50s the first three days of the month caused a rapid snowmelt and brought area streams and creeks to bankfull just in time for a significant winter storm on the 5th and 6th. Then, just as things began to return to normal, heavy rains fell on the area on the 11th, 12th and 13th causing conditions to once again worsen. Many streams and rivers in these counties left their banks and forced the closure of dozens of roads. Reservoirs in Ashland and Richland Counties established record high levels. The pool behind Charles Mills Dam reached it's highest level ever at 1,017 feet on January 16th. Swampy areas behind the dam flooded forcing the closure of U.S. Highway 42 between Ashland and Mansfield for 10 days. Water levels behind the Mohicanville Dam in eastern Ashland County came to within a couple feet of the all-time record. 8,800 acres behind the dam were flooded. Extensive flooding occurred along the Mohican River in Loudonville where four blocks were flooded. Mohawk Lake in eastern Knox County reached it's highest level ever and was up to 79 feet above normal. Homes in the Brinkhaven were affected by the Mohawk Lake flooding. Dozens of evacuations occurred during the middle of the month with most of them being in areas near the Charles Mills and Mohicanville Dams. In addition to the river and lowland flooding, sump pump failures caused by power outages from the ice storm of January 5th and 6th led to hundreds of homes sustaining major damage from basement flooding.

January 25, 2004

Low pressure over the southern plains moved northeast across Ohio. Snow associated with this low spread into northern Ohio during the evening hours of the 26th. Light freezing rain began to mix with the snow during the early morning hours of the 27th. This light mixture continued through the middle part of the day. Snow accumulations through noon on the 27th ranged from 3 to 5 inches with the greatest amounts along and just south of U.S. Route 30. The precipitation intensified during the late afternoon hours with moderate to heavy freezing rain falling for around 90 minutes. Some sleet was also reported during this period. Ice accumulations of up to one half inch resulted from this period of heavy precipitation. This created extremely treacherous driving conditions and resulted in hundreds of accidents. Many downed power lines were also reported. The freezing rain diminished in intensity during the evening hours and finally ended just before midnight.

March 8, 2003

A cold front moved across northern Ohio during the evening hours. Showers and strong winds accompanied this front.

East Cook Rd, Mansfield. No power. ETA from Edison is 9:30AM, they haven't even dispatched a crew yet. It's too cold for them to be lax in addressing this stuff... at least most of the kids in the apartments here are heading to school soon, hopefully, so they will be warm....
