    .CLIMATE... Closing the books on the meteorological winter (Dec-Feb) 2020-2021. Prelim data shows Harrisburg finished as the 28th snowiest on record with a total of 36.0 inches or +11.3 inches above the 30-year average. Total snowfall at Williamsport ranked as the 8th snowiest winter with 53.8 inches or +26.1 inches above the long term mean. February was also a notable month in the snowfall category as Williamsport (8th snowiest with 22.0 inches), State College (11th snowiest at 25.2 inches), and Harrisburg (18th snowiest with 19.7 inches) set notable marks. Of additional note: February of 2021 was the snowiest February since 2014 at all 3 sites.

    I would be interested to see numbers for areas in between State College and Harrisburg. I feel like there was a dry zone from eastern Bedford through portions of Juniata and Perry counties that saw very little from any of the events this season. 


    Take a map and trace a corridor from Rt 26 in Everett up towards 994 in Entriken to Rockhill Furnace, and 522 from Orbisonia to close to Beaver Springs and I feel like from storm threads and radar memory, that area likely got less than half of State College and/or Harrisburg. 


    Crazy winter.

  3. I'd love to be sitting in the office at CTP right now. You have WSW for the majority of your CWA and guidance suggests dropping to WWA for the southern 2/3 of the CWA and nothing for the rest, but I don't even know if that's allowed. What do you do for those areas? Issue a HWO? Downgrade to WWA even though that may not verify? Tough call. 


    Their silence this afternoon is pretty noticable.

    I'll be honest and I don't want to poo poo on the party which is why my posts have been few and far between today...

    Since Sunday, I have felt exceptionally good AND confident about this storm.

    My faith in this storm is wavering big time today for 2 reasons: overall less QPF being modeled, and more importantly, mixing issues. 

    Someone talk me back from the precipice. First one to alleviate my fear gets a free brewskie. 

    Easy. The world will continue to spin no matter what happens.
