    MDT had .73 of rain overnight. It seems like we will get a few more tenths of rain the next few hours. It is only 60 degrees & it feels like October out right now.

    We finally got some rain in the Harrisburg area last night. It poured for a few hours overnight. It now breezy & a little chilly out for early June.

    Yes, I agree the Harrisburg area had 60 to 80 % pops for rain most of the week, but has received little rain to show for it. Thank goodness this is not winter because many of us from around the turnpike on north would need talked off of the ledge !

    I have had enough of the rain this week! However, I just found myself looking at the radar, wishing that a snowstorm was incoming with the precip that is currently developing to our South that is crawling up the coast. It would be awesome to get a week of precip like this in the winter. We would be buried in snow. Ok, back to reality now ! I am looking forward to a week of sunny & dry weather with temps in the 70’s. That should not be too much to ask for in May!

    It sounds like you guys got hit hard by that storm. We had a few small branches come down, but nothing too bad despite the strong wind.

    Tornado warning for Harrisburg area ! I can’t remember last warning for my back yard?

    The CTP warning says up to ping pong ball sized Hail ! This could be crazy here shortly for the Harrisburg area.

    Minneapolis & Green Bay got hammered with historic snow. Their radar & Blizzard Warnings were entertaining to watch as the storm crushed them with snow.

    Another wintry April day ! I saw at least 3 rounds of snow showers today in Harrisburg & Marysville. We should have actually had more April snow if the storm on the 7th had hit us. A couple of days before it looked likely that we would get 3-6 inches of snow, but it ended up missing because of too much cold air that pushed the front to our south. This late winter/early spring has been memorable & has become one that we will mention for years to come.

    Does anyone think that the snow showers in WV, OH & IN will make it all the way through CTP, including the LSV tonight?

    What a crazy swing in temps from yesterday to this am ! I spent most of the day in the yard yesterday in what felt like mid summer, & now it feels like early winter. CTP even added the chance of this heavy rain storm possibly mixing with snow showers at the end of the event !

    Light snow is ongoing in Marysville. Some flakes are trying to stick to the cartops now. The radar continues to fill to the west in CTP. I’m hoping for a covering on the grass & a car topper. I’m going to enjoy it this evening. It could be our last flakes until next fall!

    The 18z GEFS says that we might not be done yet with cold & perhaps a little more snow. After the warmup at the end of this week, we should go back to below normal temps.

    Tomorrow into Tuesday am could be the last chance to see snow flakes for many of us until next Fall. CTP has a 70 % chance of a rain/snow mix changing to all snow tomorrow night, but not amounting to much for anyone. The radar looks interesting out in the Midwest & it should be just cold enough for some flakes. Maybe MDT will squeeze out a few more tenths of an inch to pad the stats.

    It’s hard to believe that with this radar & the cold air coming back in tonight that something would not work out to deliver snow to us this weekend. Maybe we will get a last second miracle ?

    Joe Bastardi & Bernie Rayno are not writing the storm off & think there is a chance this still comes back north for Saturday. I think we will know by the 12z runs tomorrow am. All of the pieces should be onshore & in a better area for the models to handle. We have 3 chances in the next 5 days to get MDT 2 more inches of snow to reach the 40 inch mark for the season !

    Yes, I just looked it up & here it is :

    Crazy swing south by all the models overnight. Usually we see shifts within 3 days of 50 miles or so per run, but the NAM for example shifted a couple hundred miles south in 1 run ! Still 48 hours to go, let’s see what today brings.

    For those of us with short term memory issues...here is how well the GFS did with our snowstorm 2 days ago. Please see this map below from 12z 4/1, Less than 24 hours before the event, it had the jackpot along the PA- MD line, & fringed areas near I-80. We all know how that turned out, with next to nothing near the MD border, to 5-6 inches near I-80 when all was said & done. The NAM & Euro will lead the way again with our Saturday storm.

    Nice start to the 0z runs with the NAM!

    Most models trended north today & now put most of CTP in the game for good snow on Saturday! Hopefully we settle into the sweet spot for this one over the next day or so. The last few storms, the good old Euro & NAM combo has been a good indicator of where the best snow will go, & I like where those 2 models went today for CTP. CPC seems to like the further north trend!

    The EPS shifted north with the Saturday snow storm. The EPS mean snow map through the Saturday event has the 6 inch snow line up to the PA turnpike, with even more to the south. The EPS Control run through the Saturday event has the 6 inch snow line running along I-81 in PA through the LSV, with even more to the South. I think at least the LSV will get into the good snow stuff with this event, & possibly most of CTP.

    The GFS & Euro, along with the ensembles all trended north with the Snow storm potential for Saturday. Last night at 0z, the Euro had the 2 inch snow line near Baltimore, but now the 2 inch snow line is near Harrisburg. The GEFS also just went north & has the .5 inch of precip Line near Harrisburg, when earlier today it was south of the MD -PA line. Yesterday’s storm really trended north within 72 hours & the jackpot area ended up near I-80, when a few days before it looked like they would be fringed. Oh, & then there is next week’s storm...

    It was great to score 3.9 inches of snow at MDT to bring the seasonal total to date up to 38 inches. This is crazy considering that they started March at 18 inches. The 18z GFS & GEFS say that we have the chance to make a run at more snow. They both give us chances on Saturday & again on Sunday night into Monday. Onward to a 40+ inch snow season !

    About 3.5 inches here in Marysville, but it’s tough to get an exact measurement due to compaction, & surface temps 33 to 34.
