Interesting side note... the warm temperatures that are moving in are creating dense areas of fog. I'm at work now (last day before Christmas break and my classes aren't showing up) and the fog is just rolling down off the hills and into the river valley. I wonder what it looks like at home now?
The storm was a prolific rain maker as 1.10" of rain has fallen since midnight. Further to the north, ice and snow accumulations are great too. Milwaukee, Wisconsin received over ten inches of snow (top photo) as did Grand Rapids, Michigan (bottom photo).
The rest of the afternoon should be dry, but winds will begin to increase as the front approaches.
