  1. Well.... 4 years ago at this time Capital City airport was sitting at 80 degrees, and 3 years ago they hit 83 on Feb 21st... talk about snowpack killer... felt terrible for Ski Roundtop... and yet, both years there was sweet redemption on the mountain in March. Lets do it again!
  2. Beautiful scene in Linglestown this morn.. man, this hobby is a constant reminder of how expectations determine perception of events.. yesterday at this time, I was staring to 2.5 inches of fresh snowfall and feeling a bit disappointed.. this morning I go out and measure 2.5 inches of additional snowfall overnight and I’m giddy... my irrational snow-weenie mind on full display the last 24 hours. .
  3. Yea!! High fluff factor, huge flakes for past 20 minutes.. pleasantly surprised. .
  4. For as feast or famine as its felt around here in recent years, this is now the 5th double-digit snowfall for MDT in the last 5 years. Jan 2016 Mar 2017 Mar 2018 Dec 2020 Jan 2021 Not to mention the surprise pre-Thanksgiving storm in 2018 where MDT picked up 9" and we had over 10" here a little further north of Harrisburg prior to sleet onset. Crazy times.
  5. Back to heavy snow in Linglestown, now with wind gusts mixing in..over the 10 inch mark in depth now. .
  6. Para keeps the nuclear option on the table.
  7. Yea, the last I read, it was set to become the operational version in early Feb. https://theweatherguy.net/blog/new-gfs-model-coming/
  8. 12z GFS-para is a huge hit for most everyone just to add to the chaos..
  9. Well.. happy hour GFS definitely on board with the capture & stall/prolonged event idea. .
  10. I can't remember the winds ramping up this early in previous major storms, ie grass still showing and its coming down sideways.
  11. 71 degrees just north of Harrisburg right now. Best it’s felt in the late afternoon here in quite some time! .
  12. That is bizarre. Must be due to those tropical bathwaters of Lake Superior and Hudson Bay.
  13. No problem! Admittedly my heart was racing like crazy. For a few minutes I thought the life long bucket list dream of witnessing a tornado touch down might materialize. Also equally worried about my new shingles lol. The best rotation on radar was further north east of Halifax, I'm not sure if anything touched down up that way.
