    January/February Winter Storm Threat Tracker

    They said the transition period over the last part of January would feature big temp swings and a lot of back and forth with the models, but things would be more stable once the big cold settles in at the beginning of February. I hope we get one of those long lead-time tracking events in a couple weeks.

    MLK Weekend Event - Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

    Perfect test for the Radarscope precip depiction -- the ground obs line up perfectly with the snow vs. rain. You can really see the CAD on it nicely.

    January/February Medium/Long Range Disco

    WOW you're going to Killington for the long weekend? Oh man you're in for some serious cold and snow! LOL Saturday night 10-14 inches with low of 6 degrees. I went to Killington this same weekend in 1995 and it rained and reached 50. Anyone see the Washington Post article from a couple days ago about the Polar Vortex having split into three pieces? Here is is in case anyone missed it: Polar Vortex Fractures - Washington Post

    Light Snow Event - 1/17-1/18 Obs and Discussion

    Where in Maine? I've been looking at the VT forecast since I've skied there -- holy crapola! 1.3 here, bring me to 16.8 for the winter. Great winter already, even with the December miss.

    January 12-13th Cold Smoke Obs and Nowcast

    Oh they were bad! I saw a few cars slip, especially when starting from a stop. The unplowed neighborhood streets are easy; it was that half inch of new snow on Rt. 355 that was super slick. My 19-year-old son drives home from work at Wegmans at 6:00. Glad he took the Outback! I didn't do the proper measuring and I know was compacting earlier. I have 7" on the ground now with moderate snow, 28 degrees.

    Wow! What area of Germantown are you? I am next to Milestone near 355 and 27, and have closer to 6 inches. Just went around the corner to pick up a pizza and the roads are BAD again. Moderate snow and 29.

    Best snow rates I've seen all day - almost moderate. They never did plow our cul-de-sac so anything new will accumulate there.

    Congrats! That is an industrious young man there. Lot of kids these days are content to just sit around. Steady light snow 2 miles NE of Germantown, with larger flakes mixing in.

    Mother in northern Calvert just a few miles south of Wes reports 5.5. That area looks good for some ULL later on!

    Just cleared the driveway and walk with my electric snowblower. A cold smoke storm, it is not! That stuff is fairly dense. Right about 5" here 2 NE Germantown, and 29 degrees.

    If Charlottesville gets 12" they will be sitting at 24" for the winter. That's nuts! 33 and overcast.

    December 9/10 Storm

    Just got a report from relatives in Leonardtown, St. Mary's County with 5 inches; just changed over to sleet. What an over-performer for central VA to far southern MD! The VDOT traffic cams for I-95 in and near Richmond are a hoot.

    Glad to see the far southern reaches of our area getting a taste.
