    Honestly it has been an average winter for this area so far - through today we have 10.2" of snow only 1.6" below normal. The upcoming pattern is very cold for the next month....as I always say give me the cold the storms will work out.....patience all on this forum will end up with a well above normal snow year....keep the faith!!

    On another site a NWS forecaster is wondering why the NWS have not extended the WSW down into Chester County....assuming the point and click is correct that we have 2" to 5" of snow and then 0.3" of ice with temps never going above freezing....

    Latest Wxsim with 18z GFS/NAM data for NW Chester County is nowhere near as wintery/icy as my NWS point and click which sees no rain - all ice for my area....I am siding with WXSIM on this one....but still not good Rundown - Snow arrives by 2PM / Heavy Snow at 9pm with 6.5" on the ground / IP through 11pm with another 1" of IP - for total snow accumulation of 7.5" by 11pm - then ZR from 11pm till 2am with 0.75" of ZR and then another inch of rain before ending at 10am before temps plummet

    Hi Steve - disagree big time on this. The Phillies have already upgraded significantly IMHO at 4 positions this offseason. LF/SS and 1B (with the move of Hoskins here) and Bullpen They need one more big bat and 1 more starting pitcher and they will be contenders for sure this year

    My NWS Point and Click for NW Chester County PA has reduced the snow and sleet forecast to only 2 to 3" of snow and then to rain with no ice accumulation....of course my local Wxsim program with 6z GFS and NAM has increased both the snow/sleet and ZR...assuming the NWS used the 0z NAM Here is the Wxsim breakdown Snow Saturday afternoon becoming moderate by 3pm and Heavy by 4pm - transition to a heavy mix of snow/IP at 6pm with already 3.0" of snow - Heavy Sleet from 630pm through 11 pm with total snow/IP accumulation of 6" to 8". ZR from 11pm - 2am with up to 0.5" of ice accretion before turning to rain - another 0.75" falls as plain rain before a brief change to snow before ending.

    I think it is more like 3 or 4" followed by a quick transition to ZR but with only slightly below freezing temps and steady rain it will not accrete that impressively - just my 2 cents

    Wxsim updated with 12z data remained nearly the same as the 6z GFS/NAM for NW Chesco (similar temps/less precip - added a little snow at end) S+ by 3pm Saturday with Heavy IP by 6pm - total snow/sleet 3" to 4" - Temps stay below freezing till near midnight with 1.36" falling as frozen. Than another inch or so of rain before changing to snow before ending Still thinking south folks like me will not do as well as those further north and of course west like Steve etc.
