    Can confirm rates picked up in the last 15 minutes here in Northeast Baltimore city. Sticking very quickly to all surfaces. Temp has also fallen from 29.3 to 27.9, and dewpoint is up from 13 to 16 degrees in the last 30 minutes or so.
  3. March 13-14 Storm Nowcasting/Obs

    Wunderground radar seems to be up and running just fine, not sure how accurate their depictions of sleet vs. snow are though.

    This is literally going to be me this weekend.....I hope!!

    Haha! There's always room for more when whiskey is involved. I really hope I get snowed in, I think overall we are up to 80 spirits in the house, including rum, whiskey, gin, tequila, mescal, vodka, and 2 "house" barrels aging whiskey and rum currently....not to mention a fully stocked beer fridge and about 8 cases of high end imported and domestic micros sitting in wait. Getting snowed in at my house is a drunk snow lover's dream.

    I have a bottle of Van Winkle 10 year, which is considered a "step down" from the Pappy Van Winkle 12 year. Not easy to find but only $80 a bottle retail. I've had the 12 and 15 Pappy's and the VW 10 is pretty comparable in quality and way more affordable.....if you can find it. Thinking it's time to break out some of my Buffalo Trace Antique Collection for this storm - Eagle Rare 17yr Bourbon and Thomas H. Handy Rye. I have over 60 bourbons, ryes and scotches, so it can be hard to choose. Gonna bring out the big guns for this one

    Still all snow in NE Baltimore, moderate and small flakes still, no fatties. Temps nearly steady, but DP is creeping up.

    Confirmed. Harford Road looked like it had been sort of plowed, and we saw one plow on Old Harford, but anyone not in a truck was having difficulty driving. Side roads are straight-up impassible unless you have a vehicle with at least 6 inches of clearance.

    Was just out with my husband and our dog on a nice walk through Parkville. When we started it was barely snowing at all, by the time we got home 30 minutes later it was dumping. Still tiny flakes with some medium-ish sized ones mixed in, but no big rimmed flakes yet.

    I think we will! Flakes are still very tiny. Temps on my PWS are rising, but very slowly.

    Thinking just over 6 inches here, though it's been blowing around a lot in my yard so it's hard to get an exact measurement. I wonder how long we can hold on before it transitions over to a mix!
