    Gonna go with 5" as my final amount.

    We broke 5" mark with snow/sleet combo. Still sleeting hard with some mixture of snow leading to accumulation.

    We finally changed over to sleet right when we hit 4" mark here.

    Amazing you're pinging while we still haven't change over yet. I'm sure it's about to happen any moment now, though. Approaching to 4".

    Puking snow. Best rate of this winter. 3.5" and accumulating close to 1"/hr now. Sleet line is couple miles from here, though.

    1.5" here so far with moderate rate of snow falling (0.5-0.75"/hr). Estimating we're 2-3 hours away from pinging.

    Yes, it has to do with the beam height. You're seeing "sleet line" at a certain distance away from the radar because it's where snow aloft is melting into rain and refreezing back as sleet few thousand feet above the ground. Think of it as a mix zone with snow, rain, and sleet. The closer you are to radar, the lower into the atmosphere the radar beam is hitting so it's seeing mostly same stuff again (which is sleet in this case).

    Just starting to snow here.

    Winter Re-Awakening - February 12-14th Redeveloper

    I've been telling people here to expect 4-8" before sleet move in. I have a hard time trusting higher amounts when we kept underperforming our events this winter. Plus, 3-km NAM isn't too excited about us getting more than 6".

    Several miles up the road, we're finally getting light/moderate flakes and strong wind gusts. Nothing legendary, but still got a nice coating.

    Especially with the cold coming up.

    Can't even get mad at this miss. I'm happy with 6" on the ground.

    It's funny because I've been reading on here for couple hours and I finally got the 7-10 reference. Look like a potentially clean miss here at this point.

    Not looking great for me to see it, but I'm not sure if the radar beam is over-shooting the squall or if the squall is very weak in NH.

    So... like experiencing two minutes and half of total solar eclipse in Tennessee?
