    December 9/10 Storm

    Official total from McCormick Observatory was 12.9" More snow yesterday than all of the last two years COMBINED in downtown Cville.

    Depends on where you are. Barracks Shopping center has a foot. Took me an hour to clear a path to my car and get it out. Local mets noted ratios were 20:1. Can definitely believe that. Was pure powder for hours.

    By the way, with that 8 inches... I've now exceeded ALL of last year's snowfall.

    A few measuring sticks courtesy of a local met. Can verify that it's definitely 7-8" here in Charlottesville. Major overperformer in our area.

    Dry air finally gave in here in Cville, just north of I 64. Lots of tiny flakes. That HP is giving ground, but not much so far. Took hours of virga to get to actual precip to the ground

    I'm sure it will get here but the air was QUITE dry yesterday. Pretty pleasant actually. This morning on the way to the gym it definitely "felt" like snow was coming. Still does. Plenty cold and the cloud deck is thick. Just have to saturate the air now.

    So... it's actually happening here in central VA?

    I know it's storm mode but yeah. While everyone was enjoying 3-6" of powder in November, I counted two flakes, six pingers and the rest was a cold rain...

    Kuchera says nearly 6"... 10:1 has more than 7" here in Cville. Really doubt that verifies.

    12/5 snowshower "event"

    Ah. Yeah it was a nice little burst there for a moment. Back to --SN. Maybe we'll get another one.

    Light coating on which side of the city? Hasn't stuck here downtown.

    Well we missed entirely earlier this year. 33F and rain (a couple pingers too) in November. Maybe now we actually get something.

    November 15-16 First Frozen Obs/Nowcast

    There was some sleet real early this morning... then rain... then some more sleet (enough to cover my windshield with ice pellets) and back to this MISERABLE cold rain. Even non-weenies in the office are begging for snow. Oh well. Glad the rest of y'all are doing well. Love that we've at least got to an early start in tracking!

    Jan 16/17 Event Obs/Disc

    Killing me that I'm just to the WNW of that blob For the briefest of moments I thought rates were about to pick up. But at least all the grass is covered. No traffic problems whatsoever but schools closed in Cville and some surrounding counties. Delays elsewhere. Over what looks to be maybe an inch?
