    January 12-13th Cold Smoke Obs and Nowcast

    Richmond closing this thing out, and it was pretty much a miss here just light snow to sleet to a lot of freezing rain, with a nice burst of heavy sleet and snow. Roads covered. Probably about an inch over last 90 minutes

    In West End of the city we got maybe an inch of snow, followed by sleet, followed by pouring rain at 32. Branches are fairly well iced up but thankfully, knock on wood, no outages. Hoping for maybe some pity back side snow here in next few hours. Been sitting at 32 for majority of storm

    Would definitely be your long awaited revenge on Richmond for 12/9/18! We'd be 22 and sleeting while you get 42 inches. Ha!

    I'm an amateur of course but so far midday models appear to be trending a little colder

    Can't really figure this storm out. And if you look at the local TV forecasts they can't either. I love NBC 12 right now: 4-6 inches, but maybe just an inch or hey 9-10 inches! That's called covering all your bases!

    Great snowstorm guys, sorry I was off the board all weekend! Bands in the late afternoon were the real deal, definitely 1-2 inches an hour for awhile. Shovelled a path to my grill at 5:30pm...had 2-3 inches of new snow there by 7:30. What a great way to start the season, and right near the solstice too so even with sun the melting at a real minimum

    Well verbatim the latest NAM has around 7 inches in RIC. Sharp cutoff with about 3 inches in Ashland and then nothing north of Hanover.

    Man I hope we can get something here too eagles2011. Last night's models were not comforting, but goodness knows we've watched areas to our north win in these kinds of setups time and time again! Would be nice to be the "northern" overachievers for once!

    December 9/10 Storm

    That's been the tension on this board forever. For as much as you say it's been a problem with this storm, Richmond and CVA folks have had to live with constant "I hope Richmond doesn't get anything" kind of posts and a board perspective that is always Beltway-MD centric when in reality it's the MA board and a large part of the population covered exists south of that area. It's all dumb because its just weather, but it does go both ways, and it does oftentimes make it tough for Va folks outside of the Beltway to really feel like this board covers us

    Just watching the models this feels very December 2009 to me. We will ride the line for sure, but, as of this moment, it looks like we could be on the "right" side of it, ironically yes the left side of the S/R split in the RVA metro area. I remember 2009 was a classic too close to call storm up until the very last moment. And when it was hammering snow in Richmond that Friday night it was raining in the Tri-Cities. Accumulation map shows an incredible cut off. My house in west end of Richmond got a foot. Folks in Hopewell got maybe 3-4 inches on backside. Feels like a similar deal unfolding, with perhaps a little more cushion. I'd take that in a heartbeat of course

    Good to see the Richmond thread picking back up, because goodness know we are the "no-mans land" between the heart of the MA forum (Beltway) and the Southeastern forum to our south! And Agree with eaglesin2011, if RIC sees 1/3 of that amount, so say 4-5 inches, that would be a massive win for early December.

    "We could be screaming about Richmond." I mean Richmond is part of this subforum...

    Florence Observations

    Interestingly enough the weather station at the Bald Head Island conservancy seems to indicate the island really got spared here. Highest wind gust so far is 62mph. About 5.7 inches of rain. The track of the storm, pushing right front quadrant way north, then coming inland at Wrightsville and jogging west before the eye got to Bald Head, may have saved the place a lot of damage. Hard to know for sure as no one is there right now, and will take a few days to get a good look but may be some good news for an area many thought might really get hit hard

    Despite all day mood flakes maybe 1-2 inches max across the Richmond metro. We are south and east but not THAT far south and east, so we too are missing out on the bigger ticket items this season. Looks like a very solid snowfall in southside Virginia, and perhaps now into Tidewater

    The idea that Richmond is crushing this season is ridiculous. We are at approximately 5 inches of snowfall from 2 systems. Yes from Prince George County down to the Beach this has been a great winter, but in metro Richmond that's just not accurate
