    Mount Holly radar.

    The radar parts are changed out when they need to be, but keep in mind these radars are on all the time except for maintenance. The replacement parts are also reconditioned many times so they may not last as long. As for adding a radar in the Lancaster to Harrisburg areas, that would be great but likely not happening. There are some studies starting to see how lowering the lowest elevation angle will affect data and others. I believe the State College and Buffalo radars are part of this, and my office put in for this for our radar.

    Okay, but let’s be fair. Forecasts by other sources have not been good either.

    Mount Holly radar.

    The radar is a priority, however when parts fail they have to be shipped in. Our techs work hard maintaining it and making repairs. Unfortunately parts do wear out as the radar is always running (outside of preventative maintenance). Also, this radar has not had many failures the last few years. Building a second radar would be great but will likely not happen.

    Measurable snow?

    Thanks. Yeah I have been looking at the PennDOT cameras, and where it is a bit easier to see there is at least a coating on the grass in Berks into Lehigh counties.

    Thanks, and yeah that area due to elevation sure does better.

    Do you have a measurement? Sounds like probably half-inch or less (?).

    Yeah we got one report so far, which was from Huffs Church in Berks County with 0.5 inches.

    Any snow accumulation measurements to pass along? Thanks!

    It was a serious question. Just curious if you thought Burlington County especially closer to the river would be included.

    Would never be able to tell. Seriously, I read discos and such from many Eastern US NWS outlets and you folks are among the finest in the biz. I think I speak for all of us when I say thank you for all you do! Thanks, as I really appreciate it. We do the best we can with what we have. Friday’s event we were to slow to react and then it was to late.

    Would you include northwestern Burlington County in that?

    Thanks, I appreciate it. But my office continues to be short staffed which is taking a toll.

    Easy to criticize an NWS office when you have no clue what is going on within the office. And we do not always wait to the last second to issue a winter storm warning.
