  1. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    Yeah, the first six weeks of Met winter have been solid. Kinda of a throwback winter so far. I think most of us just want it to be winter when it’s supposed to be winter, and see how the storms play out.

    Made it to midnight, so I missed the best rates. But overall it was a fun week tracking a real threat. Glad to see we officially reached warning criteria, I’ll admit I was going 50/50 before I crashed out. Lol

    Np I found turning off the radar helps to see the lows better.

    I'm a real noob at reading these maps, but this shows all the different levels and lows. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/mesoanalysis/new/viewsector.php?sector=17&parm=700mb

    We'll probably stay north of the 700mb low pivot point, so getting dryslotted looks unlikely. Still a good bit of moisture and energy to last through at least dawn, so at some point later on we'll probably get some deform action.

    That's good to hear. Thanks for the update, we don't have many posters past the airport.
  7. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    Because the longer duration snow event is less likely, hopefully we can get some good rates once we changeover to snow. And mabey someone can make a run at warning criteria amounts.

    Thats interesting because the 18Z NAM liked us. It's gonna be a long night.
  9. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    I hear ya. If we can get that last push of cold air before all the good precip in W.V. gets here, we'll likely be ok. It's gonna be close though, I'll definitely be stepping away from the screen at times. Lol

    Current conditions at New Philadelphia, Harry Clever Field (KPHD) Lat: 40.47°NLon: 81.42°WElev: 892ft.

    I can only remember one as recently as the late 90's off hand. They're pretty rare.

    As mentioned earlier, this is probably going to be a nowcast situation. Even though we're only 24 hrs out, there still isn't as much clarity as would be expected. The NS vort is still kinda tricky, and the SS vort will be a work in progress right up through 00Z. For sure one of the tougher winter forecasts in awhile.
  13. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    Yeah, I notice in their AFD's the Euro will be mentioned a bit more prominently than the GFS, and much more than the NAM.
  14. Pittsburgh PA ❄️ Winter 2017-2018

    Riding the 12z ICON all the way. Tomorrows 12z suite will be interesting.

    Also agree we probably won't jackpot, but not ready to dismiss a warning level snowfall. The system seems pretty juiced, and the cold air wrapping in, is legit rapid change over type.
