  1. April Discobs Thread

    Why on earth would you want that? And I don't even mean, why would you want that in April. Why would you want that EVER?
  2. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Less than 1" since 9am. Sitting at 5" total. Hoping we get at least one more decent band this afternoon.
  3. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    3.5" in Aldie, heavy snow just started to taper off for now.
  4. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Heavy sleet here in Aldie
  5. Weekend Snowfest/Rainfest/Mixed Mess?

    At least you weren't in the city. I have to admit to laughing hysterically at Jim Cantore in the city with an umbrella and a very sour look on his face as he covered the "blizzard"
  6. Weekend Snowfest/Rainfest/Mixed Mess?

    If you're talking about the one that ended up as mostly rain in the city, that was a really good event for those of us farther to the west. ~8" out here, if I remember correctly
  7. Super Bowl Slop Storm

    Kind of odd there - I just drove from Leesburg back home (just SW of South Riding). 30 and lots of ice on trees in Leesburg; according to the car, the temp jumped to 34 in the Ashburn Village area, then back down to 32 as I went south towards Route 50. All the trees here are iced over and a glaze on the sidewalk, and I'm south of you. There was less in Ashburn. Maybe intensity of precip?
  8. Jan 8th Ice/Mix/Rain Event

    Sleet/rain mix (mostly sleet), moderate now, 31F
  9. Dec 8/9 Obs and discussion (Showme's) Storm

    I was surprised by the afternoon accumulation. Had maybe 2" at noon, most of it fell between 1-4pm. High ratio light fluffy stuff, not coming down heavy but big flakes. Wasn't expecting much this far west... guess climo wins again.
  10. Dec 8/9 Obs and discussion (Showme's) Storm

    4.0" here in SE Loudoun. Heaviest snow of the day was between about 3-4pm. Still -SN Surprisingly low water content. Almost impossible to make snowballs.
  11. End of July Super Soaker

    0.89 here
  12. 2017 Severe Thread

    Brief heavy rain, thunder but not very close, some wind. Not terribly exciting.
  13. 2017 Severe Thread

    1.01" of rain from that storm earlier. In about 40 minutes.

    I am not a trained weather spotter, and my wind gauge is not currently functioning. That said, that is completely believable based on what came through here. Strongest winds I've had in a while.

    I take that back, now we have hail. Small hail, though.
