    February 24th-25th Heavy Rain & High Wind Obs

    Of course it rains for the Flyer's stadium series game in February, must be miserable sitting for two and a half hours in 40 degree rain. I guess we'll have to see how iceman says it went. Would have been sweet if it were snow. Edit: actually I'm jealous, that was an awesome game.

    Are there any radar archives for northern Vermont?
  3. Lots of branches down across roads and powerlines. Bottom of my street, I've seen these tall pines uprooted during heavy rainstorms. Luckily just a couple branches down from this storm. Still slick on untreated roads/sidewalks as of 5am. Lots of fog too, visibility on 276 isnt great but no accidents between 29 and Jersey, yet.

    Freezing drizzle 30 degrees. Walked down to my neighbors and the roads are still icy even where it just looks wet. Here's a picture of the ice on the trees. It didnt turn out too great, but we have at least .1 accretion, probably more. There's some low hanging branches on some side roads. Also ignore the long johns, I still haven't had a chance to change from snowboarding.

    Not sure how much I ended up with, probably a little over 3". Probably very close to whatever JP got. Just got back from Bear Creek, it was nice for a few hours with the fresh snow on top of stuff they were able to blow the past few nights. Was good for practicing front flips!! The drive back wasnt too bad, roads are wet with a lot of slush in the middle. Hills may be an issue with rear or fwd.

    Pixie dust in phoenixville.

    Still looking at 3-6 per the NWS. I'm thinking four, or maybe a match to my 3.75" from the last storm. I'm likely gonna head to bear creek in Macungie PA, their forecast is very similar to mine. Snow starts at 9am and switches to sleet by 6pm. Enough time to get up there, ride for a bit, and hopefully beat the sleet! Hoping 100 and 724 are in decent shape, they're both sketchy roads. Maybe I'll take the turnpike back to be safe, even if it takes longer. I'll report my totals when I get home, hopefully before the sleet.

    A 6+ inch all snow event, across the board, would be very nice.

    Gfs has something similar.

    Let's see if I can get an inch of sleet again. DP 15F

    Unless one of those heavy bands set up above the Mason dixon line before the precip switches, I agree with iceman. We'd need 1" + snowfall rates for a short while to accumulate 3-6 inches in the greater Philly region if it's only going to snow for around 6 or 7 hours . North and West higher elevations of our subforum may see 4". I dont see anyone in our subforum getting 5 or more. Judging by last storm, the most we see is around 8 inches along the central PA MD state line.

    February 19-20th Threat - STORM MODE

    I was under the impression the FV3 snow total maps are innacurate and overdone at the moment, especially when handling sleet.

    You should be ok. There may be some delays, my buddy flew in around 11:30 from Denver to PHL during last storm. I think that was during the first wave where the PHL area got snow and not ice though. Depends on timing but planes have built in de-icing mechanisms and it will be warm enough to keep the runway ice free with salt.

    Yeah, I was thinking the ferrier looked low overall, and the 10:1 looked a bit too high. I think somewhere between the two is a good call. With the higher accumulations possible to shift location depending where the strongest banding sets up. I think the winter weather watch for 3-5 is good, even if it underpreforms, the Wednesday evening commute will be bad.

    Big difference between the ferrier rime corrected map and the 10:1 3k NAM 12z. Keep that in mind.
