  1. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    5.0" as of 11 pm and I think that is probably it, as the radar has completely fallen apart the last half hour, somewhat more quickly than expected, but I won't complain, as this storm overperformed for many, including me, as I got a little more than my prediction for 4.5" at my house.
  2. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Snow slowed down a bit the last hour as we "only" got 3/4" - at 4.75" now and will easily make 5", but not sure beyond that, as the back edge is getting closer. Great storm.
  3. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    So as of 9 pm we now have 4.0" of snow on the ground, which was a 1.5" per hour rate the past half hour. Pouring out there. Seriously pouring. Just made an abstract snowman,lol - great packing snow. Still 32F. Will absolutely make 5" now, but hoping for 6" of snow.

    Any reports from Philly proper?
  5. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    As of 8:30 pm, we have 3.25", so 1" per hour the past half hour. Still coming down pretty heavily. Just went for a nice walk, threw a few snowballs, ran and slid down the driveway, made a snow ange, the usual stuff. This is a really gorgeous snow, since it's wet enough to stick to everything, especially since it's not windy. My friend just landed at EWR and he said even the major roads around there are a bit slushy in spots.
  6. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Up to 2.75" as of 8:00 pm, which is 3/4" in the last half hour or 1.5" per hour. Wow. Pouring snow out there - true heavy snow with <1/4 mile visibility. Think we get to 5-6" before it ends around 11-12. 32F and roads are a mess in the region.

    In case folks hadn't seen this yet... Special Weather Statement National Weather Service New York NY 736 PM EST SAT FEB 17 2018 CTZ005-006-009-010-NJZ002-004-103>106-NYZ067-069>073-180230- Northern Fairfield-Southern Fairfield-Northern New Haven-Southern New Haven-Eastern Essex-Western Bergen-Western Passaic-Western Essex-Eastern Bergen-Eastern Passaic-Rockland-Orange-Bronx-Southern Westchester-New York (Manhattan)-Northern Westchester- 736 PM EST SAT FEB 17 2018 ...HEAVY SNOW WILL AFFECT FAIRFIELD...SOUTHWESTERN NEW HAVEN...PASSAIC...BERGEN...ESSEX...WESTCHESTER...SOUTHERN ORANGE... BRONX...ROCKLAND...and NORTHERN NEW YORK COUNTIES... A band of heavy snow will develop and continue over the region through 930 pm. Visibilities will drop to a quarter of a mile or less in this area, with snowfall rates of 1 to possibly 2 inches per hour. Roads are expected to become quickly snow covered, with travel becoming difficult due to the poor visibilities and icy roads.
  8. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Up to 2" as of 7:30 pm and down to 32F now; this is slightly over 1" per hour rates still and snowing heaviliy - heaviest snow of the winter for me. At this point, given the SPC notice and the radar, I think I'm going to bust low on my 4.5" forecast for my house. I'm crushed, lol.
  9. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Holy freakin' crap, from 3/8" at about 6:25 pm to 1.5" of snow at 7:05 pm - that's over a 1.5" per hour rate. Roads covered with about 3/4" of snow and accumulating easily now that melting is near nil, as temps are 33F. Will be surprised if I don't exceed my 4.5" prediction. Gorgeous out there.
  10. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Just ripping here and it dropped from 35 to 33F in the last 15 minutes of mod/heavy snow. About 3/8" on the ground in the last 15-20 minutes, easily enough for snow to start accumulating on paved surfaces on our street.
  11. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Accumulating on paved surfaces yet?
  12. Snow/Slop Storm 2/17-18 Obs

    Just started snowing here (not rain which is a good sign) and 35F. Let's see if I get the 4.5" I predicted last night. No idea really, as this is such a tricky system.
  13. Feb. 17th-18th, 2018 Bowling Snow

    Anyone have access to the UK snowfall maps? Can see precip (0.6-0.8" for most of the Philly-NYC corridor), but not snow and the surface temp maps are too far apart to be helpful (every 12 hours). Thanks....
  14. Feb 7th snow threat

    Changed to freezing rain here about 30 minutes ago at 31F; now almost 32F with very light ZR - about a 0.05" glaze on top of everything. Driveways, sidewalks and sidestreets are very slippery, but any moderately traveled and/or salted road is just wet. Should be rain soon, as it's 33-34F just 5-10 miles SE of me.
  15. Feb 7th snow threat

    Looks like it has changed to sleet for good here, at 31F. Freezing rain can't be far behind. Nasty stuff, but hopefully short-lived. We have 1/2" of new snow/sleet on the ground. Not quite the 1" I was hoping for, but it's something.
