  1. Crop it or reduce the resolution of your photo. Yeah the limit is 1.95 mb.
  2. Ty Millville for putting in the extra effort for us back here. Always loved reading your thoughts on what was happening. I hope you end up in one of your choices for forecast area.
  3. Light snow in Lititz. The storm that keeps on giving.
  4. Quick question? Lancaster showing wintry mix keeping down amounts. Do the thermals support that? Also with the globals showing high amounts in lsv nws seems to believe the lower values from other models. Is it better to be conservative from their pt of view when there is a difference? Thanks in advance for any replies.
  5. Wet here with what looks like some melting sleet on the deck. No snow that I saw, but as others have said, it could have been overnight when the 25 or so flakes fell.
  6. Heavy snow lititz northern lanco. No mix i see. Beautiful sight.
  7. This is what in Lanco we call our wishful thinking..... after many beverages of choice.
  8. Just wanted to say: Here on the forum we wait for snow, For all of us it makes us glow. Which is what was needed during this year, To bring us all some laughs and cheer. And while not certain of how much we get, All of us hope white and tons of it. But I really think what is so much fun, Is sharing the love of snow on here with everyone. So enjoy it and let it bring you cheer, Along with all your special beverages I hear. And when this snowstorm is finally done, Let us look forward to tracking the next one. Enjoy all!!!!!!
  9. I think i saw someone wanting thundersnow? From state college afternoon discussion. This target area will see a one-two (maybe even three) punch of warm advection heavy snow later Wednesday afternoon and evening, followed by a period of peak CSI-banded heavy snow with the potential for Thunder snow later Wed Evening through a few hours after midnight as the nose of a strong 50-60 kt easterly 850 mb jet and 130 kt upper jet focuses hefty uvvel and slantwise instability near and just to the NW of I-81.

  11. Question - we have three results - one that spreads more snow to the nw and cuts our totals down in Lanco, while we have the jackpot thru lancaster and another one showing the whole area getting hit. I guess we need to wait for all the models agree or are there any thoughts on which way this could go. More confluence = more outside, less confluence = more inside? BTW it has been a record setting number of days w/o measurable so the fact that it is snowing today and Wed/Thurs leaves me giddy with joy. Just wondering others thoughts.
  12. Snowing here in lititz. Not sticking yet but nice to see the change.
  13. This week would be quite the way to end our record number of days of no measurable snow. Bring it home. Btw i think on the euro im just to the left of the 23.3 inches in lanco. Woot.
  14. More taint for us SE crew. Still nice hit but the lower snow totals are creeping towards us. I hope psuhoffman is right and this is just model mirage. Per the 18z gfs the low is going over nj now.
  15. I think CTP summed up all our options pretty well this coming weekend. Basically a tossup. Let us hope we can get the most favorable outcome for us and perhaps as mentioned below a negative NAO? We can only hope. There is considerable uncertainty with next weekend`s weather. The GFS and GEFS have been consistent for the last several runs with bringing a coastal storm up the East Coast Saturday- Monday. Model runs have varied significantly in precip type and location with outcomes ranging from widespread snow to all rain. Meanwhile, the ECMWF has been more consistent in keeping the surface low south and/or east of the Commonwealth with basically no storm impacts whatsoever. The ECMWF instead favors a deeper low pressure system over Canada, which would bring prevailing southwesterly winds and dry conditions to the Middle Atlantic region through the weekend. About all we can do at this point is mention the possibility of *something* happening next weekend, and as such, have brought in marginal PoPs to match WPC guidance and lean toward GFS/GEFS solutions. It is worth noting that the long range guidance from the GFS shows the NAO dipping negative at the end of January... something that has not happened since the end of November 2019.
  16. We believe in inclusion of all colors and bands for those who want to those who want not.
  17. Mid atlantic forum getting excited for latter half of jan and beyond. And usually what they get the southern half and hopefully the entire area gets. Would be nice to move that ridge in the pacific over a bit east to allow us to be on the colder side of the boundary with a storm track se of us.
  18. Beautiful winter day in Lititz PA. Looks like maybe we end up on the right side of the boundary later in the month hopefully. But will take what we can get.
