  1. I detect a slight wobble toward the coast
  2. Those saying East Coast “dodged a bullet” are already forgetting a key lesson of what we have learned about hurricanes in recent years. Just because a Cat 4 or 5 storm weakens, it still pushes a surge closer to its original strength, instead of its weakened state.
  3. New York City itself busted hard. Upton was forecasting 7; looks like city got 2 to 4.
  4. Yea, but at least in those cases D.C. usually has white rain or another form of mix, sleet or non accumulating snow. In this case, absolutely zero wintry precipitation of any kind in city. And You could tell this morning it was too warm in city, and that you’d have to travel far, far outside the beltway for that to change. I guess occasionally you see nothing but a driving rain downtown while Rockville gets 5 inches but I really can’t think of that many times where it plays out like that.
  5. No precipitation yet downtown dc. People walking around with spring jackets on. Really doesn’t seem like accumulating snow is possible even up at end of the Red line (Shady Grove) but good luck
  6. Surprised to go outside just now to discover, even in Downtwon D.C., there is still some ice building up on trees and elevated metal surfaces
  7. Downtown DC just flipped back to snow. Huge flakes in this band.
  8. Anyone know what DCA has? At this point, the goal of DC region should be to try to stay #1 in the snowiest East Coast big city competition. Will be hard to stay ahead of Boston as we head into March, but perhaps NYC and Philly remain beatable
  9. Doug Kammerer from NBC 4 reports the change over to sleet has occurred at his house in Bethesda..
  10. Really lightening up downtown. Looks like 2 inches. Roads caved earlier but salted streets now quickly melting.
  11. I’m estimating about 1.5 inches has fallen downtown
  12. LWX just tweeted that the sleet line is rapidly advancing north
  13. Light snow started about 15 min ago Downtown DC. Not accumulating yet.
  14. I actually think last-minute forecast semantics in a storm like this a bit ridiculous. Fact is most nornal people really don’t differentiate between 2 and up to 5. Less than 2 they would consider a bust. More than 5 they would consider surprising but not end of world considering it will be raining by late afternon. More than 8 would start to be viewed as upward bust.
