Precip?

Same as before.  Maybe a degree colder aloft.  Really no change worth noting...a good thing.

Staying positive, but that radar looks pretty paltry.

 

I think this is a good example of how radar can be misleading... take a look at southwest Ohio... the radar around there hasn't looked overly impressive all morning based on dbz levels... yet there are reports coming in already with totals in the 3-6" range as was forecasted...

and another good example here is how bad some of the short term/rapid update type models like HRRR can sometimes be... forecasted accumulations on 14z run for that same area on HRRR by 1pm of 1-2"

15z run has storm total accumulation there of 2-3"... oops lol

Hoping for the best because our forecast totals seem to be falling off fast.

Unfortunately, I have to work tomorrow morning. Have to be there by 1am....I'm anticipating white-knuckle driving down Columbia Ave in my V6 which handles snow like a wet bar of soap. CAN'T WAIT

I know the local stations here will send one of their big 4wd to pick up talent when it is bad. OR even better, put them up at a hotel nearby.

 

I have a big  Jeep with a Hemi, it sucks on gas but is awesome in snow.

Hours ago my friends on their way to Iowa,  posted a picture on Facebook they were driving on an interstate near Indy and there was several inches of snow on the highway then. they said there were multiple wrecks and the roads were bad

i'm hearing reports of flurries in Camp Hill

 

I've been watching traffic cameras (I've decided to head home when snow hits Gettysburg) and haven't seen anything east of Hagerstown. Probably couldn't see flurries though, those cameras have horrible resolution.

That would not surprise me.  Within the past hour, there is "mist/hazr" being reported at KMDT / KTHV with a visibility of 5/4 miles respectively.  Sometimes an ASOS will mistake flurries or even fine snow flakes as mist or fog or haze.

Light snow in Hagerstown while I'm at work. Really big flakes. I like what I'm seeing as the dry slot seems to be filling in to our South and West. Good trends on them models this afternoon as well, think a lot of people will be happy tomorrow.

Just left Pizza Grille by the market; not really flurries but just very hazy. It might be extremely fine snowflakes but it's more of a haze IMO at the moment. But man it looks/feels like a snowstorm's approaching.

Ours will too...but realistically only for big storms when they call in extra personnel. Small stuff -- not much help. I just have to leave at literally the worst time of night for this particular storm. Oh well, that's the job.

PennDOT cams are showing snow on I-81 at the PA/MD line.  FYI, you can expect a haze for about an hour then bam it starts.

Road cams have snow in Gettysburg.  Roads wet.  Looks like a nice band setting up across the typical southern Adams/York/Lancaster zone.

Roads starting to get covered in Hagerstown in spots, as the snow has picked up intensity in the last 15 minutes. Really worried about the timing of this event now--schools did not let out early because of the progged later start, so we could be looking at the perfect storm of school + rush hour traffic out on the roads very shortly.

If I lived closer I would take you into work.

Started snowing here about 12:30 - just light flurries.....still snowing grass and paved driveway covered.

That's surprising. Schools in York county have sent kids home already.
