  1. 33 degrees with moderate snow at 12:30pm on April 18th, kinda nuts.
  2. Big snowflakes in Harrisonburg right now, mulch and grass are beginning to get a coating.
  3. C+. 13.7" in January is the 3rd most in my 12 year dataset. February was awful, but the March storm helped cap off the winter pretty well.
  4. 2.0" in McLean. Pretty solid given the time year, the brutal winds definitely made this feel like a Jan or Feb storm for some time.
  5. Might just be that he’s on chrome, I use the chrome app and it’s not working for me. Moderate snow in McLean, non paved surfaces covered
  6. Reminds me of that one March event we had in 2015 (March 20th?). Similar timing with it being early morning, and only the elevated and favored areas really got much, which I believe was a slushy 1-4", while UHI hell had nothing but snowTV.
  7. There's a bit of a difference in timing between models. GFS is 9-12z Sunday, meanwhile Euro is 0-6z Monday. Probably just noise at this point, but I'd imagine we would want an earlier onset
  8. Mhm, better cold press and a stronger HP overtop compared to previous ensemble runs.
  9. 1/3 - 6.5". Fast moving snow bomb. 5" in 4 hours, areas to SE eclipsed double digits. 1/7 - 3.8". Speedy redeveloper w/ a miracle snowband, 1.6" in just one hour. 1/16 - 2.6". Frigid powder turns to sleet/rain with wicked winds. 1/29 - 0.8"* 2/13 - 0.6"* Season Total: 14.3" * = Based on spotter reports Interestingly enough, this is the snowiest La Nina winter for my location (all above measurements are from McLean, Virginia), since at least before the 2010/11 winter. Probably the snowiest Nina since at least 1999/00, which is pretty impressive. Still holding out for a minor event to send us over 15".
  10. 57/33 in McLean. It's nice to have a snow event line up with the one weekend I'm home. Hoping for 1.3", that'll put my location over 15" for the year (the average in a data set of 11 winters here is 16.9", but that doesn't include 09/10). Should be close!
  11. It's time to revive March 25th snows and make them the new December 5th.
  12. I would be perfectly okay with getting 3" of SB Sunday snow to watch fall at home compared to watching 7" of snow fall at college. Too bad it's the NAM
  13. The Australian model disagrees, looks like it's saying that it's 4 months away
  14. I mean.. we did have that one wet paste storm this time last year. Was impressive for some areas but ofc for most what little snow fell melted by midday.
  15. If it makes you feel any better, it looks like the Canadian fringes you in an opposite direction by vaulting the initial precip well NW https://collaboration.cmc.ec.gc.ca/cmc/cmdn/pcpn_type/pcpn_type_gem_reg.html
  16. Very light snow in Harrisonburg while walking to class. Nice ambience
  17. Moderate rain showers, actually.
  18. Trough goes negative a bit too late for us but still a pretty decent hit. Pretty interesting h5 setup
