    The last two hours in McLean have been such a blast. The intensity has been a welcome surprise. What an awesome Jebwalk! Now back to football!!

    Had a nice burst of moderate snow in McLean for the last hour. Just starting to lessen a bit.

    December/January Medium/Long Range Discussion

    Tony Pann actually did a very good job on 2002 Christmas Eve snow that many in the DMV saw. He was fairly bullish compared to others. Maybe Christmas snow is his thing.

    March Mid/Long Range Disco 3

    The 1996 April 9 snow at Dulles was the one CAPE and I were mentioning a couple of days ago. It actually snowed the better part of the day across the WMA but didn’t stick until Dulles/Leesburg area. Now somewhere else I saw a reference to a 1986 snow about April 25. I think that was moisture associated with a very strong cold front. I was in Burke at the time. It flipped in early evening so sun not issue. It really cranked and had minor accumulation. But just made all the more unusual since so damn late in April

    March Mid/Long Range Disco 3

    I don’t remember the set up but certainly the year. April 9,1996, in the winter that would not end, saw snow for a large part of the day. Sometimes heavy. Hard to forget since I was getting married that upcoming Saturday. Despite good intensity and duration no real accumulation around the city and Fairfax. But I do seem to recall Dulles may have gotten around 3 inches.
  10. I blame it on Tyson’s. The new UHI
  11. Great post. As current and lifelong resident of McLean you are spot on. But we are trying to make up ground now!!
  12. Yes McLean doing well for the last 30 minutes
  13. Nice period of snow in McLean. Probably best rate since 2016 Blizzard.
  14. Simply for how it makes me feel when falling from the sky. For how it looks across the landscape. What I really miss is waking up in the middle of the night of an expected snow but not having to rush to your window for the answer. You know because of the silence. The new blanket of snow has lent a calming silence to your surroundings. And the new snow has an extra lightness to the night which comes to your room. You know it’s snowing and a great day awaits.
