Heavier echoes are both intensity driven and also probably some bright banding in which flakes that are only a tiny bit melted reflect back a lot of the radar beam energy back to the radar site. The water film around the ice does this.

Thanks Scott.

 

That radar loop showed quite the pulse. But echoes above my head are in fact represented OTG with increased intensity and snow growth (finally getting some dendrites mixed in with the sugar).

I hope SnowMan is looking at the radar right now.

It looks like the heavy stuff is slowly starting to move across the border.  Enjoy imminent epicosity and I will be in that band in an hour I hope.  I like Chris (Oceanwx)'s notion that the band gets in NH and then maybe we get some pivot action.

 

Good luck!

Roosta, where in Arlington are you? I'm in West Medford so we've got to be pretty close.

Right on the Winchester/Lexington border. Turkey Hill and appropriately called LOL.

Cool. You're then about 3 miles NW of me. As long as I'm snow, you're golden. Ripping all snow here.

Whoa!! House shaking gust..the kind you can hear the roof creak a bit

 

Had a couple of those about 30-45 minutes ago when the sleet came through.  I'm guessing you're still cold enough in the column for all snow up there.  Back to snow here...don't know how long it's going to last though up to 31.5o.
