Is there good potential for this to overperform in DC?

Try CoCoRaHS website. Under Map Type select "New Snow". Map is clickable. http://www.cocorahs.....aspx?state=usa

Yeah, I am a CoCoRaHS observer actually, so I probably should have thought of that. Only catch is that most CoCoRaHS observations are submitted at 7am so the totals are not up to date. Most measurements from southern Ohio are around 2 inches or so, and there is still some snow falling out there, so maybe we would bust high if that translated further east.

Been a steady light snow since 9am. About .3 so far. I am guessing I will end up with about 1.5 at the current rates.

That little tail of moisture is progged to move over the DC area late today. Maybe it extends light snow for a few hours.

we could use some rates but progressing nicely... most sidewalks/roads are just wet after treatment.

Yeah it's having trouble sticking to the road here (it was treated the other day after the coating). We need to bump the rates up.

Looks great here in NW DC. Steady light snow with all surfaces covered and some better echoes about to roll through. Reminds me a lot of the first few hours 1/30/10.
