  1. It’s been years. I feel like September has been August 2.0. This is refreshing. .
  2. Haha this would be too typical in the winter, but it also feels like this is the way summer is going too. I wish there was a metric to determine how much thunderstorm activity we’ve had this summer. I know it has been try, but I feel like we’ve really lacked those nice afternoon boomers as well. Maybe just me in the south hills? .
  3. a blocking pattern finally decides to show up. On may 9th.
  4. From November through April. A perpetual state of 40° .
  5. What time are we thinking here? 2-2:30? I was going to try to sleep for a little before .
  6. Lightning showed up on RadarScope. Also, my uncle lives in Hubbard, OH. He texted me and told me he heard a rumble .
  7. Starting to stick. Temps still at 34°. If it was 28°, I’d have over an inch by now .
  8. 4.25” here in Mt Lebanon. A nice heavy wet snow that sat beautifully on the trees all day. I know it wasn’t the 12” storm we keep waiting for, but it was a fun one. 48 hours ago we were a mess. It came together to give us a nice 12 hour storm. Fun to track with you guys .
  9. That interesting hole in the HRRR that seems to be right over our area has to be an error. I think the snow totals are a little low because there seems to be a struggle to be transition 100% over to snow. The PType map is showing freezing rain still in the area around 10z. However, looking at the sounding, I don't think FZR is falling during that time. Not sure what the HRRR is finding right there.
  10. Sorry I am a little late to the party.. Should at the very least be a fun one tonight. Still waiting on the 21z SREFs, but the 15z kicked out 4in and about a 50% chance of 1"/hr rates around 7am. Id take that in a heartbeat.
  11. SREFS over the last 4 runs --> Trending up. GEFS Plumes --> 3+ and has been trending up a little over the last few runs.
  12. Canadian made some moves as well... Nothin big, but 2-3 days out, this is a nice trend. I think we would all just some snow falling at this point.
  13. Honestly, its a nice trend. We are right on the line, but the 00z GFS showed some hints of bringing the energy back a little further west as well. So the NAM and the GFS are hinting at a slightly stronger LP that runs a little more inland and slower. Will need to watch, but its a nice to see. Hoping the Canadian comes in with a least a little move
  14. 00z suite is coming in this evening. Models are all over the place. So many different pieces they are trying to figure out. Long week of watching...
  15. I’d be content if I couldn’t see grass under the snow .
  16. Found these maps out there. Pretty interesting to see where we are so far in snowfall. Not the bottom, but pretty damn close
  17. I'm not ready to throw the towel just yet. February is climatologically the second snowiest month for W PA. Right now, the long term pattern (the active pacific and sub tropical jets) while they don't mean they are cold, they do mean that February should be active. All we need is a little wobble in the PV and then we might have the stage set. Would i be shocked if we had a below average season, no. But i also wouldn't be surprised if February (2nd - 3rd week) we at least got a few systems that can be players.
  18. So this actually makes me sad. Since 01/01/2011 here are some stats We've had seven (SEVEN! --> Thats it!) single days that have 5.0" of snow or more. We've had 18 snowfalls of 6+" over a 3 day stretch (the data shows 23, but i eliminated duplicate storms over a different 3 day period). It was the only way i could think of to get close to what you wanted to see. 18 storms in 10 years. 1.8 storms a year of 6+" Unfortunately, though it seems like we haven't had that many -- trust me, i'm in the same mindset. NWS Pittsburgh says that climatologically we have two 5" storms a year. Sadly, we are in the right spot.
  19. Took a look at the UL WV tonight. Can start to get an idea of all of the pieces and how they are working together. Also give you an idea about why this is probably going to end up warmer than what we need it to be.
  20. Granted, the result didn't matter too much. The storm still ended up off to the north due to alot of the noise and congestion out in front of it, but i think this is a good step.
  21. Anyone check the Canadian today? 12z is supposed to be on the newly upgraded supercomputer. https://dd.meteo.gc.ca/doc/genots/2020/01/17/NOCN03_CWAO_171911___36984 .
