Central PA/fringes of MD - December 2013 continued

Recommended Posts

I've seen quite a bit of banter about the precip line approaching.  Won't the radar fill back in with the transfer of energy and the formation of the secondary low?  The pressure falls off of North Carolina indicate that this might be happening farther south as secondary was forecast to form off of Delaware.  Any thoughts on this?

Usually that's when the precip shuts off

To the west and begins to organize around the redeveloping low pressure.

Probably not much. If anything it could cause the dry slot to speed up as precip consolidates toward the coast.The coastal wouldn't throw precip back unless the mid level lows closed off, allowing for a comma head band to develop on the NW side. The mid level flow will remain out of the west, so the dry slot will keep moving.

It is moving pretty fast but we have some heavy snow to come before it ends.

Looks like fun times at the linc again! Wow. And any chance some of those dry areas south and west will fill in? Not likely with the coastal beginning to take shape.

I have a weather app on my phone that does a future radar forecast. I don't how good it is, but, for what it's worth, it never has that dry slot making it here.

Based off of the mPING reports and Dual Pol Sterling Radar...there are some huge snowflakes in the brighter reflective working up from MD.  East of I-83 might see a quick 2" of snow.  That might help us sweak out the low end numbers on the warning...but only if it's snow and nothing else.

 

This might help explain what i was experiencing....there were HUGE flakes at the time. Could have been high water content in them.

That is odd. According to home, Linglestown seems to have a few inches thus far with moderate to heavy snow falling.

Took it about an hour ago so there is more, this was out near Swatara. At my house I might have 1.5" ot so, hard to tell really.

This will bust low in Harrisburg and points south and east where the warnings likely won't be verified. The dry punch is already on our doorstep and I still don't have 2 inches in Hershey. Congrats to the state college posters where this will be a good storm.

Could be some melting on the edge of the flakes that refreezes as the hydrometeor falls through the column and presents a better target for the radar.

I'm glad that Williamsport and the Wyoming Valley is going to get the most...they have been getting the screw job of late.

I shouldn't say never, as it does make it here, but not until around 10:00 to 11:00 PM.

Same.

 

There does look like a little bit is filling in behind the main area.
