  1. That yellow band starts as larger flakes and heavy snow, but mixes and is moving northwest and will be all sleet at the end
  2. All sleet now here and moving northwest. 1.5" of snow on the ground.
  3. 3 miles south of Waldorf, I have been mixing with sleet for about 30 minutes. The flake size has increased over the past hour but sleet is mixed in. I expect a complete change to sleet within an hour. It's coming northwest. Salisbury is 41 now and it's in the low 50's in Norfolk/Va Beach area already. That screaming 850 jet means business this evening. Good luck to those well away from the tidal waters.
  4. Almost 1.5" on the ground, the flake size increased over the past hour. I can hear a few pingers with the snow already. Hopefully we can hold it off for another hour but doubtful. All surfaces covered. Good luck out in the colder spots!! I am at almost 18" inches for January, and looking forward to the next 10 days.
  5. Gotcha. I was a bit wound up. Snow is tough stuff around here and I do get that. Sorry for the brief sidetrack of the thread.
  6. No worries, I will just back off and lurk. I love snow and make one comment that isn't cool and this is the result?
  7. ?????? What does this mean??? Wow
  8. One hour of those extreme rates is fine, several hours....no thanks.
  9. In the southern end of the area, it was still mixed precipitation at 530 to 630 am when many people commit to driving for their morning destinations. The rain prior to the changeover kept brine from being used. I experienced the January 26, 2011 disaster at Oxon Hill and the same thing in southern MD the day prior to the January 2016 blizzard. I believe this situation was largely unavoidable. Many people are going to get out on the roads and think they can make it up an incline because they are a good driver and have a vehicle equipped for the conditions, all it takes is a few others that can't make it to start the chain reaction. Also, I drove down to North Carolina about 4 or 5 days after the January 25 2000 snowstorm and I85 was absolutely littered with abandoned 18 wheelers on any incline. Yesterday it snowed on average 2 to 3 inches per hour from 630am to almost 1pm in the area impacted around Fredericksburg and southern MD.
  10. My final storm total accumulation was 14.3" and on average, I still have just over 10" depth this morning. Hope the Thursday night event gives us snow on snow, but is centered on our northern forum members.
  11. Another inch in the last 20 minutes up to 9.5"
