    March 20-21 Storm Banter and Party Thread

    Some people are displaying some very odd pathology. Awesome storm here, daytime SN+ in late March, don't see how anyone could be disappointed with this.

    The weenie panic meltdowns during the lull were probably the most predicatable part of the storm. You would think that it all went to crap and we were just getting flurries. Radar looks primed to me and the models generally agree on accumulations of 4-8" for most of the region with some possible upside for the lucky ones to get into a good band. SMH at all you weenies losing your mind, lol.

    March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Did not expect to get much ZR from this storm in the middle of the day this late in march but icicles are forming on the trees, mix of ZR and pingers here, Temp is hovering right around 32 with a dewpoint of 30.5. 0.48" of liquid equivalent so far, definitely getting good QPF.

    33.1 and temp and dew are both dropping gradually in Silver Spring even though I'm in a lull. Don't see how you're rising in gaithersburg, most of the other stations in gaithersburg are steady/dropping. My PWS for reference https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KMDSILVE107

    NAM3k has the surface below freezing in MOCO around the beltway starting at ~noon today. Looking at the surface wet bulb map that might occur a little bit sooner. The warm pavement prior to the storm might help limit impact but with heavy sleet through the afternoon the PM commute could be a nightmare today since all schools, govt and businesses are open. I think early dismissal will be needed in Moco, Hoco, Baltimore, Carroll, etc. but even with early dismissal if the temps verify <32F this early the driving conditions might be pretty bad.

    Temp steady at 38, dewpoint starting to fall, now 28.7. So nice to have a hp to the north to drain cold air.

    So much better when ers shows up to talk dirty. All year he has been dropping truth bombs on our countless fails.

    Ji is my hero, 10th time is a charm for winter storm threads. I'll have to remember that for next year.

    March 20-21 Potential - STORM MODE THREAD

    It's because the 850 primary is still going strong out in KY/wv until hr57-60 so the flow is out of the SE pumping warm air in at the 850 level. Temps crash after once the transfer finishes and everything crashes.

    There's a warm layer around 850 mb for a good chunk of the first part of the storm but there's a really cold layer just above the surface up to 900 mb. The predominant ptype would probably be sleet until the second wave really takes over. Looked through soundings in moco verbatim on the 3k
