    Yeah, saw that. I just hadn't seen the Twitter map online anywhere. Just curious.

    Is this map (daily?) online anywhere else other than NWS Twitter feeds?

    1.69" rain IMBY for this event so far, compared to 1.74" at BWI for the entire day 3/21. DCA 1.96" for 3/21 but IAD 2.69". 3/21 hi temp was 48 IMBY. 3/22 low temp midnite to 6am today was 40, but temp back up to 41 at 6am. Looks like an active day today!

    Have only measured 1.3" here so far and 3/10" of that has been in past 1/2 hour. Got a new rain gauge so maybe it's not so accurate (?), or maybe am just in the dead zone for this system.

    1 lightning flash and 1 brief rumble. Temp has fallen about 10 degrees to 56 as front moves thru with brief hvy rain. .09” so far but it seems to be moving east and away now.
  7. Down to 34.7. It's wet but closing in on a bona fide dusting, not quite a full-fledged coating yet. Some pine trees are holding a little snow now.
  8. Temp has fallen 0.7 degrees in last 30 mins to 35.3. Slight whitening of just some grassy areas. Deck has minor white pock mark stickage.
  9. Steady wet snow past hour, 36 degrees. Some stickage on mulch, flakes trying to stick a bit on deck. Roads and sidewalks obviously just wet.
  10. I'm in Culebra, Puerto Rico (an island east of mainland) a few more days -- 75 at 7am AST, 81 in afternoons. Fresh east wind 15mph+ all day. Sunny. Probably will have a big storm since I'm missing it.

  12. When you consider we didn't even get the main storm but rather the WAA out ahead of it, I can't complain about approx 5" while the main storm went to the Lakes. We can thank the strong HP (strategically positioned) to the north for that. This was an energetic, spring-like system, with plenty of GulfMex juice. While I noticed temps rose toward the end of the snow, the temp has remained quite steady around 30.6 for the past few hours. Just a bit of sleet IMBY as the snow slowly fizzled.
  13. 12:30pm 30.1° (up 1° in last hour) Light snow/sleet approx 4-3/4"
  14. Temp up from morning low of 27.5 a few hours ago .... to current 29.0. Snow has hung on very nicely all morning, with only a few times having a "sleet-y look". Going out to shovel now .... and to measure. Eyeballing 3.5"-4", maybe a touch more.
