  1. PD3.5 Lite Obs and Nowcasting

    When I stopped seeing flakes out the window, I ran out and measured 0.5", SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. It felt more like it was back to rain than sleet or a mix when I was out just now.
  2. Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    01/17/18: 0.2" Total: 3.5" Moving to a tie with Baton Rouge!
  3. Jan 16/17 Event Obs/Disc

    Dutifully went out at 06:00 and measured 0.2" for my morning spotter report, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. Cold out there as I also swept my walkway clear with a broom.
  4. Jan 8th Ice/Mix/Rain Event

    I thought we had nothing (everything was just wet when I got home around 6pm), but when I went to take out the trash a few minutes ago I nearly wiped out on my steps. Cars, roads, even the main sidewalks are fine -- it's just my front steps (that get very little sun) with ice here (SSW Franconia/Kingstowne).
  5. Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    12/30/17: 0.3" 01/04/18: 0.9" Total: 3.3"
  6. Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    Wow, that's one of the biggest difference I've seen between us on a small storm. I just went out to re-measure (09:45) and had only 0.9".
  7. Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    Went out and measured 0.5" at 06:45 for my spotter report, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. I was on leave today, but my wife is happy to get telework (which they can take even if it's not bad for them personally).
  8. Saturday December 30 Snow Obs and Disco

    Measured 0.3" at 07:00 for my spotter report, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. I had lost track of what was happening with this one, so a very pleasant surprise.
  9. December 11 Week Event(s)

    Was only expecting a trace, but measured 0.1" just now at home (SSW Franconia/Kingstowne). The flurries/light snow have been pretty.
  10. Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    12/09/17: 2.1"
  11. Dec 8/9 Obs and discussion (Showme's) Storm

    2.1" inches (measured at 9pm) is my storm total and final spotter report, better than I thought I'd hit for my part of town, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne.
  12. Dec 8/9 Obs and discussion (Showme's) Storm

    Measured 1.5" at 5:20pm, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. Generally consistent with the other spotter reports I've seen nearby.
  13. Dec 8/9 Obs and discussion (Showme's) Storm

    During a brief stop-off at home, measured 0.63" on a wooden surface at 12:45pm, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne.

    Seeing some light snow in SSW Franconia/Kingstowne now. I only noticed because it is sticking to the car top (very, very, very light dusting). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. November Banter Thread

    Anyone got a good recommendation for a PWS for a townhouse with HOA restrictions (i.e., I can’t put anything big on the roof)? I looked in the general board but most of the PWS postings there are really old. My (cheap) PWS broke last season, and I didn’t replace it because there was a reliable Wxbug just down the street. This season, though, it appears all the Wxbugs in my area have shut down — the default now is in Alexandria inside the Beltway — so it’s time to replace... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
