  1. We actually had snow flurries/ice crystals reach the ground from that this morning that I reported to NWS. The source appears to be a large steel mill in the area where the clearing originated. With the sun from the partial clearing reflecting off of the ice crystals, it gave off an eerie shimmering glow.
  2. I don't check the other subforums, but I would bet that this issue has been a hot topic over there. I just read an article from the Washington Post and it sounds like everyone else has the same opinion as the majority here have concerning our new Euro wannabe. https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2019/02/14/weather-service-prepares-launch-new-prediction-model-that-many-forecasters-dont-trust/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.7c189d2cb3c9
  3. With all of the time and effort put into the model to keep up with the Joneses, its test run has been a sad exhibition. Long live The King. And for me, it's too early to grade the winter yet, as I consider March 15th the drop dead date at this latitude, so it has 4 more weeks to redeem itself.

    1-2" predicted here and we're approaching an inch. Like Jack said, too bad it's not going to stick around.

    Overrunning Set-Up/Ice Storm 2/5-2/8

    I've had my Davis freeze like that a few times. I have two CoCoRaHS gauges as a manual backup. Sounds like a mess out there. It must be neat to experience a zr thunderstorm.
