  1. Squall line continuing to move rapidly eastward across central PA. This is a view from SW PA taken earlier (from Facebook).
  2. Yes I am definitely looking forward to some excitement out here around 4-5pm.
  3. Approaching totality
  4. I lucked out with the cloud cover which has just cleared out of here.
  5. Sun is coming out from behind the clouds here. Storm total - 2.83”
  6. I have looked at webcams up there during the day and have not seen anything like that up there. I would wager that there has been mixed snow and rain in places up there at times especially earlier this afternoon.
  7. What is the temperature up there?
  8. There are actually indications of snow aloft currently on radar over the Poconos. Temps in the upper 30s will keep that from making it to the surface.
  9. I have rain mixed with snow here. 36 degrees and I am probably a lot lower than you.
  10. Those of us who are inland are more likely to see white rain out of this one. You will have to be fairly high up for at least the first part of the night in order to see snow that sticks. Snow levels are expected to drop a bit in those elevated locations well after midnight.
  11. Do you know what the elevation of your property is? Right now it looks like the snow line up that way is on the order of about 1500’.
  12. Still snowing moderately along I81 all the way from the MD border up to the Hazleton area in PA. Mixed with rain in the Harrisburg area. To have snow along most of the length of that highway at this time of the year is probably unprecedented. It’s rare even in January. Elevations range from 300’ to 1500’ along that stretch.
  13. It is presently snowing hard along I81 in south central PA well to the SW of Harrisburg. I am seeing visibility’s as low as 1/4 mile with accumulations on grassy surfaces near the Maryland border. Elevations there run about 500-700’.
  14. The 1983 storm brought accumulating wet snow to much of the area but changed to rain fairly quickly along the coast. Some Coastal areas received up to a couple of inches before turning to rain. Parts of NW NJ received up to 15 inches with this event. I have not seen any accumulation maps regarding this event.
  15. I am done with it and my snowblower has been retired to the back of the shed until next winter. I am even happier to say that I did not have to use it either!
  16. This is a NYC / LI focused board and the primary impacts there will be rain and wind. You will actually have to be fairly high up in the Poconos / Catskills (above at least 1000’ in order to see significant accumulations). I think most people on this board (myself included) are done with this winter anyways.
  17. Convective development is underway out here in eastern PA. Showers and thunderstorms developing with some CTC lightning.
  18. Don’t forget Bob in 1991 which hit eastern Suffolk quite hard.
  19. I will take the inland weather pattern with the severe stuff. Last week we had snow squall warnings and tornado warnings all in the same week that verified in east central PA.
  20. Snow in the high terrain of the Poconos this morning. Looks like you need to be around 1600 ft or higher to see snow on the ground. Only a coating so far this morning around Mt. Pocono.
  21. I agree with your commentary regarding hazardous conditions and drivers making bad decisions upon encountering. As I alluded to in my earlier post my primary issue was with the explanation provided for the lack of a snow squall warning as noted in the posted article. A few weeks ago in a similar situation Mt. Holly was very proactive in issuing a snow squall warning for eastern PA and it verified. I even posted pictures of the before and during on this board. As a point of reference the air temperature recorded here just before it hit was 40 so the road impacts were negated even though visibility’s were low. My issue with this situation is the fact that air temperatures prior to the Monday event were only in the low to mid 20s. That is a big deal. Furthermore the location where the accident took place has an elevation of 1600 ft. so that results in lower air temperatures as compared to surrounding areas. In addition I 81 is a major trucking corridor in that part of PA. In fact there are massive distribution centers operated by Walmart, Lowes, Wegmans, and Prologis within walking distance of the accident scene. It is easy to think that this accident took place in the sticks somewhere and is not in a built up area that would be more impacted by this type of event. I hope that the decision processes that took place as alluded to in the article are reviewed by the folks up in State College.
  22. Tornado warning has now expired.
  23. Tornado warning in northern Bucks Cty, PA. Storm has a debris signature on radar. Storm is getting ready to move into Hunterdon Cty., NJ .
  24. We have experienced a very impressive squall line out here tonight. This feature would match up very well with one we could experience in the warm season. We have had continuous lightning and thunder for over an hour now. Rain total is up to 1.07”. My Tempest has recorded 754 lightning strikes in the past three hours within 30 miles. This is really impressive stuff for March!
