Shortly after I posted the last entry, the National Weather Service re-issued the Daily Climate Report for Toledo for Tuesday. It makes official the 0.8 inch of snow for the day at Toledo Express Airport, bringing the season-to-date to a record 73.5 inches.
What also shows up in the revision is a new precipitation total for the day: 0.06 inch, which is two-hundredths more than shown in the 12:45 a.m. version and also that much more than shown in the hourly weather reports at the airport.
So that's the solution to the issue that prompted me to question how much snow really fell Tuesday evening when the record was broken.
The whole affair doesn't leave me entirely confident in how these records are kept these days, but at least the numbers make sense now.
