  1. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    I am going to make it 4.8" here unofficially. The snowboard method is usually rather foolproof AND temp was 32-33F so ratio was probably closer to 8:1 which would put things using the melted liquid method at exactly 4.8" also which makes sense. This also seems to fit with some of the obs in the area on the nws spotter site. Nice event!!

    Im bummed my BK is down for a while getting a reno.....I would have had a Whopper in your honor tonight.

    Yes! I drove home from Blue Bell via County Line, Easton, Street Road between 7:15-8PM....absolute mess!

    Where are you located? Yes, there was alot of compaction throughout. I know Paul Chesco wx wont like this but I used a blend of snowboard measurements AND melted liquid ratio using a 10:1. Melted liquid yielded 6.0" snow, several board measurements yielded 4.8" snow. My ratios are probably off a little tho. Should I just use the board measurement as my official total then? I took an avg of the 2 thats how I got the 5.4"

    Nice call on the storm! Way to stick with it!

    Didnt see radar, I was out but assuming we had banding over us here for a while in central bucks??
  7. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    From reports I am seeing we must have literally been right on the heavy side of the snow/mix line. Straight snow missiles for a while.

    5.4" right now in Warminster and snowing lightly now beginning to wind down. Just got in from sledding.....broke in the "Fat Tire" snow tube with the wife and kids....that thing is awesome!!! Storm exceeded my expectations here. Very quick hitter with most accums occurring between 7PM and 9PM. Insane rates during that period....snow asteroids and concrete marshmallows were flying. Havent seen rates like that in a long time. Heard many tree limbs snapping while we were out and power lines are sagging. So a bust for me via another overperformer. I take ;-)

    3k colder 850s during the storm as well. Looks like a solid pasting. Awaiting snowfall maps.
  10. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    850s are considerably cooler in SE PA on the 12k. Noise? Not sure. But instead of 850s +2 widespread now look like 850s -1 widespread with a pocket of 0 or +1 at best. Snow map looks like CBS Philly maybe a hair S and E. Cant make this stuff up. Miracle at the Meadowlands Part 3 type thing incoming??
  11. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    Good bit colder at the onset around hours 10-11.....lets see where this goes.
  12. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    HP on NAM 12k 1mb stronger and positioned ever so slightly better at hour 5. Yeah, I know, just looking for any positives I can find :-D

    Im with ya and agree, pretty aggressive call but nobody can claim victory/loss until the final flake/drop falls tomorrow morning. Sun is shining bright and already feels toasty out there. Not a good setup for the lower levels with clouds not moving in until late in the day. If we have any chance for a last second surprise we should get a hint or signal in the next 20 minutes as the NAMs roll in. Do or die time, now or never, backs are against the wall, add your other cliches lol.
  14. February 17-18 Threat Discussion

    That could very well still verify but if following the trends last 18 hours those totals seem aggressive. Not many folks are even mentioning ratios either which at best will be 8:1 - 10:1 for many. Hoping for a last second miracle turn of events.....not even a complete reversal just stop the trend/bleeding at least.

    Even the RAP is white rain now all the way up to I78. I said since Tuesday this feels like a 1-3"/2-4" type thing but didnt expect that to be for the LV lol.
