    March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    5.1 inches measured in SE DC, just across the river... compaction is now hurting things tho so I'll measure again later but not expecting much more on the tally - maybe another inch. It is still moderately snowing though, as it has all morning, but temp is now above freezing, at 33.

    My rates haven't really changed even when going from bright greens to yellows... right now in more greens and the rates are as good as it has been for past 2 hours. Snowflake size changes a bit but the snow has been falling at a moderate/heavy clip for a while now. Probably still an inch an hour rate easily and the snow is piling up quickly. Will measure again in a few but pretty sure i'm approaching 3 inches at this point (SE DC)... we've lucked out with the heavier stuff so far.

    Streets and sidewalks have completely caved... just measured 1.1 inches in SE DC at my house. Moderate snow continues... rates are great... temp still 31 Looks like the radar returns of bright green/yellow, the heaviest snow, are going to impact DC directly.

    Radar returns look great to the S/SE of DC.... some of it should rotate into the city and surrounding areas over next 30 minutes.

    Under bright greens and yellows in SE DC and we have moderate snow with decent flake size... best rates of the event.

    Can confirm in SE DC as well... sidewalks are turning white. The grass/porch/mulch already white. Wish it started an hour ago but looks to be sticking everywhere immediately, except roads atm.

    Light snow in SE DC... very little sleet mixing in, if any. Started basically as all snow. Sticking to colder surfaces (I had about a quarter inch layer of ice/snow already on most surfaces from yesterday). Temp is 31.

    March 20-21 Short Range Model Analysis

    06z NAMs (12k and 3k) seems improved for the DC area and align well with the Euro. Looking like a band of decent snow moves in/develops over the next two or three hours.

    Light snow started again (different than the really light sleet drizzle) in SE DC... cooler spots are completely white now (grass/mulch/porch), while sidewalks are getting icy and roads are fine (they just salted the neighborhood streets). Nice to see the returns come back over DC and points north. Temp has fallen below 32... now 31

    Very light snow/sleet continues to fall in SE DC just across the river. 32/32 In downtown, not a lot of snow/sleet on surfaces when I left around 5pm but just got home and there's a coating on the deck, grass, mulch surfaces and some icy spots on the sidewalks. I'm at a slight elevation. Once the real snow comes, would expect it to stick quickly.

    light snow/sleet now in DC... switched over about 10 minutes ago.

    Down to 33 in DC... some sleet is occasionally mixing in with rain but mostly still rain. Just went outside and it feels really close to switching over... we'll see if it does in next few hours.

    Temp is falling fast since rain started... 35/35 now... down from 38 two hours ago. It was 57 yesterday for a high.

    March 20-21 Potential - STORM MODE THREAD

    Just noticed this when reviewing the models... EURO/GFS/NAM 12k/3k all seem to be in agreement of an 1pm/2pm ish switchover for DC to sleet or heavy snow... before we go into a lull that may never be a complete lull. Gonna be a mess for rush hour this afternoon if it is heavy enough. Definitely interesting.
