Mid Atlantic Snow totals thread for winter 2013/14

Your 5" number on 1/28 is very impressive considering I only received 1" in Dundalk, and relatively speaking, I'm not THAT far from you :)

Yup that was the southern slider that just grazed places west of the bay. Forecast here was for 1-3, but I got into a persistent heavy band. Still my favorite event this winter, due to the cold temps(12 degrees) and the insane ratios. 5 inches of light fluff and it fell heavily with large perfectly formed dendrites.

With 8.5" from overnight, I've smashed the 40" barrier I was hoping to break.

 

47" on the season.  Wow.

 

Measurable snowfalls:

 

December 8: 1.25"

December 10: 2"

December 17-18: .25"

January 2-3: 3.5"

January 21: 6"

January 28: 1"

February 9: T (maybe .25")

February 12-13: 14.5"

February 17-18: .5"

February 25: 3.25"

February 26: 1.5"

March 3: 4.75"

March 16-17: 8.5"

 

33" between Februay 12 and March 17.  Crazy.

Add 3" from today (closest spotter report) for a total of 50" for the season. Never thought that'd happen.

Our totals are exactly the same now. Looks like you made up pretty good ground in March. Every mile south of the m/d line this March made all the difference in bigger totals. Can't believe we are this painfully close to 80 inches for the year. One more event and we'll top it. Think about having 2 seasonal snowfall totals in excess of 80 inches within 5 winter season period.

I know, just crazy.  Maybe April can pull out the extra 1.25".... in my records I got exactly 1.5" on 4/1/11, 0.5" on 4/7/03, 3" on 4/9/00, 2" on 4/9/96, even a quarter inch on 4/17/01.

Now that's just incredible, even for Carroll county. Hopefully we get more of these seasons to come, heck even next year has a better than average chance for another 50"+ total up your way

Now that IAD has broken 50 inches for the year I am a little annoyed that BWI totals are not as representative for the area as they should be. Events like today killed them this year from producing big seasonal totals. If the official measurements for Baltimore were taken in some open park or area in North Baltimore totals would have been 50+. Think about it. BWI is located exactly 10 miles due south of Baltimore. That is the northern equivalent of using the totals of Owings Mills or Timonium for official measurements. One may say the UHI issue is not in play by using BWI so measurements even out, but that's not the case. Often the north/south gradient screws BWI especially in a year like this.

I never really agreed with the downgrading of the 09/10 storms either there.

The pattern suggests that the gargantuan winters produce measureable snow in April....both '96 and '03 did but '10 didn't

Don't remember the day exactly but I know I woke up to almost an inch in early April 2009. When I was in college at Western Maryland College there was a couple inches of slop in mid to late April 1993. Don't remember the exact day on that one either, but do remember that being the latest I have ever seen snow accumulate.

and I was 9 months from moving out here, so I missed that one and the Superstorm out here.

Yeah BWI has definitely gotten screwed over this year compared even to parts of the city itself which have likely seen 45-50"+. Being on the opposite side of the gradient so many times made my total look like I lived in a Philly suburb, even though I'm less than 3 miles from the Baltimore beltway. There could be worst spots though, and at least BWI is located right along the fall line rather than a lower place near the bay which would simply make it another DCA <_< .

 

But still, if it were up to me, I'd have the snow measured around Pikesville or Woodlawn rather than the south side of Baltimore.
