Seems like the cold is taking a little while to filter down. It's encouraging though that the precip is taking its time.

 

Yeah...looks like no precip down here until noonish. Temp has dropped a few degrees in last hour.

Yeah---okay, I'm trusting you on this. :)

A little less than 1/2 inch of sleet, now mixing with snow at Providence Forge (17 miles east of RIC)

All snow now - dumping - maybe 1/4-mile visibility.

 

Wonderful to have a storm in day hours - the first three significant events this winter have been primarily at night.

Watching the latest trends, I'm getting very encouraged that we will over-perform in HR. Precip is transitioning quickly to snow, and system appears further south than progged. Latest NAM give us anywhere from .6 to .7 QPF and RAP looks good. We may see 4 -5 inches down here if most falls as snow.

Well AKQ has moved the 2-4" range into NC (it used to stop in Southern VB).  The 40% chance of 4"+ has moved to the HRBT, where it used to be further up the Peninsula, so trend is definitely a little south.

As expected now very light snow in the short pump area.. looks like light snow for awile now. decent drying patch almost looks like its expanding over the area at the moment . Further out west looks like its filling inna bit better.

Slight mist, not discernible to the eye, but rain detector (bald head) detected it about 1030.  During visit to local store 1045 observed tiny tiny snow pellets - but light enough to drift down - not falling.  Surfaces wet, but not freezing.  Temp has just reached 32, but cold surfaces not freezing, though water is collecting.

Boy this thing is hauling. Looks like everybody in VA will be done by 5-6p. It better thump if we're getting to 2"-4".

A solid 2 to 3 inches of snow in less than 3 hours since the change over.  Just had a great walk with Shadow to an "unleashed" territory.  Very steady wind - probably 15 mph from the due north - gave me a winter storm facial.
