    I love it. Got to 84 here. Keep pushing that front north.
  2. A few quick shots just about 15 minutes ago. Just popped up to 33 degrees.
  3. The heavier precip has "warmed" by backyard up to 30.1 degrees. One of the better ice events that I've seen in a while.
  4. Super Bowl Slop Storm

    Started out with some moderate to heavy snow at about 7am and promptly switch over the IP and ZR by about 9 or 930. It's been moderate ZR since then. Temp not budging at 29.8 degrees.
  5. Can confirm. Bushes starting to sag and trees have a good coating. Powerlines have some mini icicles hanging off them. Temp has only risen like a half degree in an hour.
  6. Super Bowl Slop Storm

    Got about an inch of snow this morning and turned to all sleet briefly. A mix of ZR and IP now.. 28.9 degrees with NE winds.
  7. Temp is still slowly dropping. 28.8 degrees. One thing I noticed is the wind is now out of the NE. That's going to try to lock in what cold low-level air is in place.. at least locally.
  8. Sleet mixing in now. 29 degrees and still dropping.
  9. Impressive snow rates right now. Everything coated white already. Dropped to 32 in no time and still dropping.
  10. Just started snowing here. 34 degrees. No temperature response yet.
  11. Super Bowl Sunday Storm 2/4-5

    You'll cool once precip starts. DP's are 10 to 12 right now. Wet bulb is probably around 28 degrees.
  12. Super Bowl Sunday Storm 2/4-5

    Yes. Also, heavier rates won't freeze as well at 31 or 32 degrees. If you actually want efficient ice accrual, hope for lighter precip.
  13. Super Bowl Sunday Storm 2/4-5

    @Buddy1987 It's overdone, no doubt, but even a half or a third of that amount is still trouble. The main takeaway is it is honing in on where we will see the most ice. What is concerning is it continues to uptick the amounts, just like the 3k NAM did. Will the RGEM verify verbatim? Very unlikely. But the trends of being colder and icier can't be ignored.
