  1. Moderate rain in Wilmington DE. Going to be a whole lot of nothing here today. Warm air still pushing north.

    Winter 2018-19 Banter Thread

    You just get that feeling that this winter could go into the record books as the single biggest tease/bust winter of all time for our area. Been hearing since November of epic things to come and that just keeps getting pushed further and further out in time with no results. Now we're talking February for a pattern flip. My pure guess is we do get the cold but it comes in snowless as the MA and SE cashes in again.

    The storm just was never meant to be for us. The modeling was consistent that that was going to be the case and it proved quite true. The models really did a nice job with the cutoff from days out. Painful. Snowed for like 16 hours straight and we got like 2.5". Just never got into decent rates at all.

    Short range models keep upping the ante for this to come further north.

    Legit light snow in northern DE. Coating everything including untreated roads. Virga returns were limited. Did not think it would start this early. I think SEPA sees a nice positive bust on totals for this one

    Tomorrow is going to suck watching DC score a foot while we are scratching and clawing for 2”

    I am only a couple miles south of the PA line at Delco. I am as far up in DE as you can go. But yes for this storm I am in better shape.

    Seems like if the storm can slow down a bit it allows for the confluence above is to move out and everything slides north. Not a ton but really all we need is a good 30 miles or so. Long shot but who knows. The current radar looks pretty impressive and here is a Gulf fetch there.

    Folks in northern DE, Delco and Chesco really need to be rooting for the 12k NAM to verity. Gives a sliver of hope for something big. Reading the MA thread and there is a definite north trend underway. Not sure it will be enough to save us. Getting 2-3” while Dover gets 12” is going to be hard to swallow.

    25-30 more miles for me in northern DE. I think its doable. My bar is 3" now but the trend all day today has been to increase totals on a sw to ne trajectory. I think maybe its the coastal influence.

    The way this winter is going I can see us flipping to below normal temps but then having the moisture train shut off. Warm/wet, cold/dry. That would be the ultimate kick in the groin.

    Way over performing my expectations in Wilmington.

    Pretty underwhelming here. Looked worse on radar than it was really. Heavy rain for about 15 minutes with some decent lightening but no real wind.

    Warm front too slow. Still overcast and only 70 in northern DE.
