  1. Unusually stark differences in the NAM 12k versus 3k with regards to location of snowfall on Wednesday night. The southern edge of the 12k is damn near the northern edge of the 3k. A narrow swath indeed.
  2. Yes this is me quoting myself ha. Anyway, in regards to the cold, I should add that those record-setting days to open the month seem like a long time ago now, as MDT is now nearly a full degree below normal for the month. Not bad considering those first two days were 19 and 17 degrees above average. Should only drop more from here as well. The cold came to play.
  3. Some thoughts after studying the 0z slate.... A thread the needle type situation with the Wednesday night cold front sagging south. Probably looking at a very narrow swath of accumulating snow and with boundary layer temp issues at the onset impeding our ratios, not an overly impactful event in my eyes. Still, I think 1-3" is a good bet for many of the "southerners" in this forum. Weekend coastal looks to be the Euro versus everybody at this point. If the globals are going to start caving toward one another it should really be today or tonight where it shows up, as we're basically inside of four days at that point. We'll see if the king has still got it. I know many on here have been doubting its title recently, perhaps with good reason. The big story is the building cold, goodness that cold. The eastern US looks to lock into some arctic air for quite some time it would seem. You know how I'll sometimes post those national high/low temps for the Lower 48 and have mentioned how it's relatively rare for a national low to come from anywhere outside of the high-elevation west? Well, I think in the coming weeks we'll see more than our fair share of lows coming from the eastern half of the country. The only issue with that type of cold becomes suppression and lack of interaction with the southern stream. Could be high and dry for a while. Hopefully we'll be able to pop something. Maybe some clippers come to fruition? Only time will tell. Onward.
  4. A little late to the party here but I finished with 3.5” before the changeover occurred and 1.06” total liquid. Have about an inch of slop left in the yard. All in all it was a bit more than I was expecting so can’t complain. On to the next threat.
  5. Good morning from beautiful West Hempfield Township in Lancaster County, where we’re just hoping to have some white left on the ground come Monday morning. Dropped to 4 last night but temp rising quick, up to 18 now. Haven’t followed much recently, as I was out celebrating the 40th Bday last night. Feeling a little rough this morning ha. Good luck to everyone’s snow chances and football teams today!
  6. Haha this is likely true. I should also clarify I'm talking KLNS. Obviously there could well be significant differences between, say, south of Quarryville and up north of you towards the Lebanon line.
  7. For my big winner, I'm sticking with my call from a few days ago -- Mt. Mitchell, NC. As for IMBY, I'll put the Over/Under for snowfall in Lancaster at 1.5". Sadly.
  8. An underwater eruption no less. Tsunami warnings from CTP?? Low of 11 here. I’m ready to throw my hands up with this storm. We’ll get what we get but down here in the SE LSV the writing is on the wall for minimal accumulation before a very quick changeover. At least we have NFL playoffs to take our minds off of it. I’ll enjoy whatever happens. Good luck to all.

  10. Correct, perspective needs maintained. But it does feel like things are slowly slipping away. Even so, keep the faith, I will *Yoda voice*
