  1. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    Nice drive to work this morning. A backdrop of blue skies and a fresh snowpack is always nice. Don’t see any torches in the long range, just a slow moderation to normal. We probably would’ve had a shot at more snow Saturday, if not for the strong blocking.

    The location and orientation of the H5 low was key. It's shape was closer to an oval which allowed a longer duration of precip, plus the location kept us out of the dry slot. The 850 and 700mb lows also provided decent moisture, considering how far west we were.

    Well folks the streak is finally over. Despite the two waves, the snow never completely stopped officially, so we finally got our 10"+ storm. Hopefully it wont be another 8 yrs until the next one.

    Get the right storm track, and even a chilly late March airmass can produce the goods. Much colder air masses have been scoured out due to a poor track. Mabey such poor H5 tracks is just climo, but one or two of these storms a season doesn’t, at least on paper, seem so difficult to come by. Great storm for late March though.

    Yeah, they're going down with the ship. They latched on to those late model runs, a bit too much.

    H5 low oriented nicely to keep things going for awhile. 850 jet providing decent moisture stream also. I think 6-10” total is attainable for much of the metro. I had about 4-5” on the grass this morning around 7am.

    What’s really surprising about that map is the low amounts for Garrett county. Must be keying in on a sucker hole in the H5 low. Not sure though.

    Would like to see more development over W.V., but there are some decent returns just south of there. Patience will be the key tonight. Lol

    Dryslot is too close for comfort, but I'm gonna hug the 12Z NAM Kuchera nonetheless. Might as well go all in, considering the long range still looks cold.

    Can feel the colder air bleeding in with the northerly flow.

    My weenie brain might be way off, but i can't remember the NWS issuing a WWA 30 hrs in advance. So my theory is that KPIT wants to upgrade to a WSWarning eventually, but will stay with the WWA until the 00z model data is complete. This provides wiggle room in case the models start trending the other way.

    Mabey this storm ends up being the March 1962 type setup that was talked about earlier this month. A well place inverted trough usually gives us a chance to overperform.
  13. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    At this point there is good agreement on a decent 850mb fetch. The 00Z Euro is stronger, with the GFS being a bit weaker.
  14. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    Euro trending back toward us. https://weather.us/model-charts/euro/2018031812/west-virginia/acc-precipitation-snow-total/20180324-0300z.html

    UVA is basically Pitt 2.0 Like you said without signing great athletes, this is the style a team like UVA has to play to win consistanty.
