  1. We just had that same exact thing here in Tamaqua about 10 minutes ago...
  2. I-80 Exit 111 near Clearfield, PA this morning...
  3. I'm scared... There's a big yellow fireball in the sky this morning and I don't know what it is...
  4. It did look like a hurricane (or the remnants of one) spinning around in the area...
  5. Why can't THIS coastal storm do what they normally do in the winter when it snows? Slide south and east and miss the area...
  6. Ironically we are no where near leaf out yet here in Tamaqua. Maples seem to be the farthest along but the oaks are just dragging their heels this spring. Up in the higher elevations of Hazleton and along the I-81 ridge top, as well as over on I-84 in the Poconos, if it weren't for (somewhat) green grass, you'd think it was February. In those locations, forested areas are still about 80-90 percent barren of leaves.
  7. Hey now...I got whopping 0.01" overnight. Now they can drop the red flag warnings and lift the burn bans...woohoo!!! Seriously though. I don't know if they got it under control, but I drove through the smoke field from the Monroe County fire all the way up on I-84 heading from Scranton to Port Jervis. We really needed at least 0.25" (or more) to help out with the dry, tinderbox conditions.
  8. Sorry for the earlier rants, but we do end up with some sort of phenomenon here in Tamaqua on a regular basis that just eats up precipitation, be it snow or summer thunderstorms, and it can get frustrating at times. My only guess is it has something to do with the local...or surrounding topography. That being said, it finally did snow up here for about 3 hours at a moderate clip, and it didn't even accumulate on grassy surfaces. Not even tree branches picked up any accumulation, which to me is pretty amazing. It truly was "white rain" up here.
  9. Still snowing like crazy down at the 78/81 split....still a goddamned snow hole over Tamaqua. Barely snowing here...
  10. Check out the PA511 cams guys (and gals?). The 78/81 area iis getting royally slammed as of 8:45am. No where else in the capitol region looks anything like it as far as snowfall AND ground accumulation is concerned. Amazing!!!
  11. Oh, I know. It was quite evident during a few of our squall line events when it looked as if we were going to miss out. This time though, at the moment, it's depiction is accurate as I've yet to see a single flurry here.
  12. Still snowing like a sonofabitch down at the 78/81 split. Still nothing here...
  13. Unless my eyes are deceiving me, it sure looks like that heavy slug of precipitation is falling apart as it moves east-northeast out of the Susquehanna Valley, thus possibly creating another famous "Tamaqua split"...
  14. I just looked at the PA511 freeway cams, and holy hell is it snowing in some places. That band DOES mean business.
  15. That's what I thought too when I woke this morning. Nothing like the solid returns from last Monday's storm across New York state and New England.
  16. I have to agree with NEPA here. While I was lucky enough to get in on a big chunk of the blizzard, he (and Williamsport) missed out on it. Some places up that way DID NOT even get to double digits for total snowfall for the winter.
  17. Nice write-up MAG. Thanks for that! As for the NWS forecasts, for me, they're saying about a half inch overnight (dawn) timeframe, then 1-3 during the heart of the day, with an additional half inch during the evening. That reads out to a "possible" 2-4 inches total. I'm at 825' in elevation, but I've noticed that most times, that elevation helps me very little as the best accumulations seem to happen around here at 1,200' and higher. It's one of the reasons why McAdoo, just 7 miles north of me would have 4-6 inches. while I had mostly rain with a half inch of accumulation.
  18. Yeah, forecast high (as of now anyway) for my location is 37 degrees. It would be tough to accumulate at that temperature even in mid January, let alone April. Too bad it's not going to be 22 like it was when I was in Albany this past Monday. At that temp, the snow I ran into accumulated on EVERYTHING despite being April.
  19. Are you saying that those areas have the best chance at a significant accumulation?
  20. Is the 12z GFS on crack or what??? 8-12 inches of snow for NEPA???
  21. Hey NortheastPAWx, look who gets the PA jackpot when it's rain...lol
  22. 20 degrees in the backyard this morning. Probably going to miss dipping into the teens, but it doesn't really matter. Even if I would have covered them, at 12 degrees below freezing, my hyacinths and tulips that came up early would have probably been toast anyway...
