    Cool Times Square cams in NYC if you want to peek in on what they're getting later today. http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/?cam=tsrobo1

    About a 30 minute lull now back to ripping in Leesburg, I'd like to thank clskinsfan for sending this band our way.

    Little bit of a lull here in Leesburg, really small flakes now after pretty continuous moderate snow since 9am.

    Totally ripping big flakes in Leesburg, drove from Leesburg to Ashburn earlier on backroads and they were terrible. Sycolin Road southbound is basically impassable with a line of cars stuck going uphill just south of JYO. Wanted to throw out one single call out for my company, StormPins.

    Mid FEB through March Threats/Snow Storms

    Through hour 3 on the 0z GFS I believe our storm looks a bit more south-northward, and you can definitely see the vort much more potent over northern China.

    Mid FEB through March Threats/Snow Storms

    For the precip panels is that the 3 hours starting at that time or ending at that time? For example, is the 132 panel 132-135 or 129-132?

    February Banter Thread

    Wasn't there some story or movie that talked about knowing the future is the worst curse of all? The weenies around here (like myself) probably would prefer a model that throws out a HECS every few runs. I know I've got a bounce in my step the day when I wake up to 8 pages of EURO emojis like and nothing starts the day off worse than reading "next".

    At first glance I thought this Weatherbug tweet was trolling us with 1/10 - 1/4 inch of snow. https://twitter.com/weatherbug/status/561869131675598848

    It looks like my post got modded, but since I got so many replies... I realize most people refer to SnowTV as light non-accumulating snow. I was talking more about being able to watch it rip outside your window. The 90 and 93 panels make up most of the precip and and they happen at 1am and 4am. I'll go back to lurking and let us argue about the Boston ratios and whether Philly people belong in this forum

    I haven't seen Ji around as much the last few days so let me channel him and say "Go purple or go home."
