  1. I work at a Chevy dealership in Lancaster and had to clean up about 120 cars this morning. Was not fun......caked on the cars pretty good!
  2. "The radar is currently down for maintenance" That's what it has said for three years. I think it should say "never coming back online." I would guess a major repair cost.
  3. WGAL used to have a live radar but its been down since 2017 I believe, it was nice for the Sus Valley.
  4. I feel like this is a good time to ask this question with squalls around. I live in the very north west corner of Lancaster county outside of Elizabethtown. When tracking t-storms, squalls, clippers, then the bigger storms from the south, etc, I have to bounce around the different radar locations to see what is coming and the returns aren't accurate half the time. I think a couple of you guys are in the same situation placed between State College, Baltimore and the Philly radar. What does everyone in this area use live storm tracking? Is there a best service/app that blends the radars and gives a semi accurate radar for this area? I asked Horst this on twitter and he said im in a radar hole, especially for squalls and t-storms.
  5. What a nice unexpected event this morning! It will be nice just to see some flakes. Waiting for the changeover in E-town.
  6. 4.5 1st event, 2.5 second, and 6.25 from yesterday, with melting and compaction I have around 9 inches of snow left as of this morning at 7am. Couple miles NW of Elizabethtown. Finally a cold week to enjoy it.
  7. Snow just started sticking on everything but the road and driveway a couple miles nw of Elizabethtown.
  8. NWS State College‏Verified account @NWSStateCollege FollowingFollowing @NWSStateCollege More #Snowsquall appears to be weakening - but that is largely due to distance (farther away) from radar. IR satellite data confirms squall has maintained intensity. Expect brief burst of heavy snow & strong wind gusts shifting east of US-15 through 12PM. #pawx
  9. 3-3.5 just outside of Lancaster City(Rohrstown Rd). I will measure in Etown when I get home.
  10. Looks like a couple inches for some of us today, maybe a nice squall line tomorrow and maybe some light snow for the southern half of the state Friday, plus the coldest week of the season. Not the worst week of winter.
  11. I was just looking at the radar, in and around Huntingdon Country blew up nicely. I went to school at Juniata, so I still always root for that area because I spent 4 winters up there.
  12. Good luck to everyone in the forum today! Whatever the outcome, it was fun tracking for a week.
