    2/19-20 Winter Storm Observations

    plenty of warm air aloft. i imagine the clouds just held what little was left of the cad in.

    lol, i'm jealous. 50s sounds great. given that we essentially have a bermuda high right now with the snow saver moving offshore, it's gonna be sloppy outside today.

    i think it'll be easy if we can get the clouds to scour out. got a nice west wind now.
  4. i think i'm already at B-, with some weight given to the nov event and the fact that the best snows this year occurred during the daytime. it's not bad considering we haven't had a great upper level pattern or consisent cold to work with. timing has been required almost all winter whereas some of the best winters we have the cold already in place (including some frozen ponds/rivers/etc) and just need a storm. the storms have been there...but the cold has been transient.

    i'm at B-. bit too much rain for my liking, but this is certainly a better winter than the last 2. it might be better than '16, too, minus the blizzard part.

    we all want another 96/16, but these types of storms are the reality. what's nice is that the concern of a gully washer rain has held off for now, so the first part of this was a legit snowstorm. those other great storms generally had a nice h5 pass. this was essentially an overrunning event due to a screaming jet and near perfectly timed cold high to the north.

    legendary sized flakes falling now. might need another work break.

    95-100% snow here again. didn't hear a single pinger.

    long story short, this is a snowstorm for our area. mixing almost always happens, but this storm is going to bump my winter grade up.

    some gloppy flakes mixing back in as the yellow approaches. i have a feeling it might rip for a bit.

    snow mixing back in here. northern crew is golden.

    sleet has made an appearance here. bit earlier than i expected, but i'm in between heavier rates, so we'll see. still not a bad deal.

    snow to mix/rain is never ideal, but it's easy to forget it's feb 20. this winter flew by, partly because it hasn't been a strong winter overall. got a couple good storms out of it, though. not bad considering we never really got into a prolonged deep freeze. maybe we can weasel our way into another event in a week or two.

    typical cad. mix line will encroach from all directions, but it wouldn't surprise me if north/central md jackpots.
