    November 15-16 First Frozen Obs/Nowcast

    I left my son with grandma at 830AM, telling them to get outside soon to play once it started sleeting, figuring we were losing the battle before an eventual changeover. That's what we do here at less than 250' or so, and we do it well. But nope - snow again. Here's my unidentified location on campus:

    Snow in College Park. Was sleeting from 9-10AM at least. Now it's back to all snow.

    September Discobs Thread

    I had the same thought. Didn't get any tw alerts from any other source. Edit: thanks, high risk. It's currently lightly raining and I'm still in college park. Not sure why they do things this way.

    UMCP is blaring the warning sirens. Got this email (I work on campus).

    Here's a nice eye candy loop. Mesoscale floater on Flo from GOES16. Yikes! http://weather.cod.edu/satrad/exper/?parms=meso-meso1-02-48-0-100-1&checked=map&colorbar=undefined

    My fave photo from my jebwalk (NW Branch of the Anacostia). This was taken around 12pm when it was still moderate snow. It's been tapering all afternoon slowly, now maybe a bit of pixie mist.

    It's been snowing without fail since 7AM here in Hyattsville. 3.5" on paved surfaces, which caved last. Colder spots like grass and railings have 4 to 5". Overall, this is awesome - haven't seen inside the beltway look this snowy since 2016! Took a jebwalk, here are some pics I took around noon, if the board doesn't explode:

    Sorry man. This is a very rare event where inside the beltway is beating G-town. Hopefully a band rotates your way soon. I'll be jebwalking soon... pics from the Northwest Branch of the Anacostia River Valley coming later! Edit: sun angle and march temps means snow can't accumulate on roads!

    Looks like MDOT and the counties are losing this fight already, especially in PGC. Google maps traffic screenshot at 945AM. Drive safe amigos!

    Moderate snow, paved surfaces caving, grass disappearing, in Hyattsville. We picked up a degree, at 31 now.

    Still light snow in Hyattsville. This is the view out my third floor apt window... I'll update later as I'm working from home today. This is so all the N/W can feel the beltway pain! (I'm joking, I'm not in pain. I'm glad it's snowing and I'll be happy with whatever we get).

    Light to moderate snow continues in Hyattsville. Sidewalks and roads starting to get lightly covered in colder spots. Looks like a band oriented WSW-ENE is about to head up and over US-50.

    SN- in Hyattsville now, under light returns on the COD radar (10-20ish dBZ). Holding steady at 30 degrees. Sidewalks and roads still just wet

    30/30 in Hyattsville with very light snow. Sticking to the grass (which is still clearly visibile), roofs, and cars, but not roads or sidewalks. Looks like northern PGC is one of the last places in the DC metro to not be getting returns on radar yet
