    April 7-8 snow event

    Disorganized forcing this AM, as was modeled.

    April 7-8 snow event

    Every year seems almost the same with not enough snow.

    Still possible:

    April 7-8 snow event

    GFS blankets much of the Balto-DC corridor with 4-6.

    April 7-8 snow event

    At the very least, a number of places may set record lows and perhaps record low maximums.

    Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    The problem with depth is lack of standardization for the temporal factor. If you get 4 inches of wet heavy snow and it is 34 degrees out and you measure when it is winding down and get 4", 4 it is. If you measure two hours later, the snow depth will be less for certain.

    Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    Yeah, I think most of us would like to see if the regions that received positive (or at least relatively positive) snow departures match our hunches. It seems that the northernmost portions of the counties that are on the north of our region did "OK" as did CAPE-land. It seems that downtown DC is almost always going to have a negative departure due to the urban heat island + city built on a swamp effects.

    Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    12/9 5.0 12/13 0.5 12/14 0.5 12/15 0.5 1/4 1.0 1/17 1.0 1/30 0.4 2/17 2.1 2/18 1.9 3/7 1.0 3/21 9.5 total 23.4 P-sure I'm missing some trace to 0.2" events but would prefer to avoid charges of slant-stickagery. Turning to the discussion above, sweeping the snow board every six hours is logical because sublimation and collapse -loss are minimized in a universal manner. Everyone should try to measure using the same standards. In NFL football, forward progress is the standard. So in snow measuring, the highest six hour amounts that can be measured before melting, sublimation and compression/collapse (and avoiding drifts) are legit. Dear Mappy, revered mother of adorable Mapette and beloved spouse of Mr. Mappy, Would you consider putting together a secondary map of "departures relative to climo?

    March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    I measured just over 9" in Reisterstown. The two visitations of warm nose that the Hi Rez NAM modeled were a very example of a model that had a handle on the storm. What escaped most of the models is the progressive weakening of the surface low that was over Kentucky.

    DC is swampland.

    March 20-21 Short Range Model Analysis

    High Def NAM has many in the DC-Balto corridor under blues for most of the 24 hrs. beginning at 6Z. Too soon to call bust. If many get 6" to 12", quit yer biotching.

    March 20-21 Storm Banter and Party Thread

    The RAP calls for about 10 more inches across the area.

    March 20-21 Storm Banter and Party Thread

    The RAP has a couple of reinforcing periods of snow through the period of the next 21 hours with snow winding down but continuing after.
