    I’m glad this is only loosely true in NC and not anywhere else.

    Great post. Do you know if that new station is online anywhere?
  4. Jan 8th Ice/Mix/Rain Event

    We don’t do ice we’ll and yet, ironically, perhaps our best city ice event in a few years comes with temps 33-35.

    Maybe as or more impressive with this cold are DCA's lows especially with UHI. How often do we get 8 (incl. tomorrow) days in a row or 12 out of 13 days with lows below 20? 12/27 19 12/28 16 12/29 19 12/30 22 12/31 16 1/1 13 1/2 13 1/3 13 1/4 16 1/5 13 1/6 11 1/7 ??

    Central and Eastern VA looks to be the big winner last night for cold temps (snow cover and relatively calm winds?). Many PWS stations in the 0 to -5 range with even a couple outliers hitting -5 to -10. Edited to add: 9 here in Shirlington for my coldest low in the last two years since my weather station has been installed.
  7. Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    1.2” in Shirlington. I think it actually overperformed here relative to others, and in line with many of the model runs from yesterday.

    As of 5:30pm today, my backyard weather station has been below freezing continuously for a week. I can’t say I thought that would be possible here. It will be interesting to see if tomorrow breaks the streak.

    I didn’t measure but eyeballing consistent with others about 1/4” in Shirlington.

    -5.6 currently on top of Spruce Knob. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KWVSENEC2

    Impressive that the 25th percentile on the 3rd is right at 0 degrees for the low. Or even the 95th percentile on the 2nd is at 33 degrees for the high. That’s impressive agreement.
  13. December 11 Week Event(s)

    Somewhat related, the VT Meteorology Program has been installing a number of high altitude weather stations in the area over the last few years. According to their Facebook page, they installed one on Spruce Knob, WV at 4682’ about a week ago. Should be fun to follow over the next couple of days. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KWVSENEC2

    Finally have a shaded, north-facing sidewalk caving with probably 30 minutes left in the storm.
