Feb 21-22 Storm Obs Thread

Recommended Posts

Perfect timing for the snow during the day and don't have to worry about melting because it's so cold and rates are high. Best snow in a long time. Got 3" or more.

Lack of watches by news really gave people a sense that this would not be a storm to worry about. Big fail

It's always the way. It seems like they jinx us otherwise.

you'll be -SN within 10 minutes

I've been getting flurries for the last hour and I've been under green echoes for quite awhile and still at this moment can't see the flakes.  I'm guessing I will see steady snow but also think I'll probably changover to sleet by 2230Z or 2300Z so unlike all the northern and western guys, I don't have much of a snow window.

I agree. I touted this as best I could, arctic century old record breaker does not yield to moderate low pressure. It will eventually but very slowly.

Cars already getting stuck on the hill next to my building.  Lots of squiggly tire tracks on the road.

 

Don't go out if you don't need to folks.

Despite treatment:

 

A neighbor tried going out of the driveway uphill and slid, finally managed to get back into the driveway facing the other way, lifted the wipers up and went back inside.

 

If you can say where the cars are getting stuck (street/block), or at least call Arlington's finest at the non-emergency number (703) 558-2222, this could be useful for Your Hill to get Cadillac treatment too.

 

Edit:  dumb dumb dumb

Little red speedster tried driving up through the snowier part of the road, veered at the top, nearly got collected  by a 4wd speeding up behind it.

 

Even if Your Vehicle can handle anything, can the vehicle in front of you?

I agree with Ji also. Had to work overtime to convince my sister-in-law to get on the road to Philly early. She didn't have much of a sense of timing and urgency based on run-up to start of event.

This is so exciting. Feel bad for people that don't seem to have realized how heavy the snow was going to be who are out and about in it.

Should have been widespread WSWs in Nova, DC and central MD. Most people hear WWA 2-4" and think no biggie. This storm wasn't hyped at all.

Solid rates. Flake size is small-to-moderate. Better than Monday for sure. Bring it.

I didn't mind the flake size monday. I minded the rates. This is a much better swath of precip at least around my way.

Lack of watches by nws really gave people a sense that this would not be a storm to worry about. Big fail. How dare they not out leesburg in a watch yesterday

maybe that will teach them not to rely on the NAM >24 hrs........unless, of course, it shows a lot of snow      ;)

Arctic Assassin says "Moisture?...I think I'll wring out every bit of it"  72%rh an heavy snow is not common.

Anyone in Anne Arundel seeing anything more than flurries? This is a real snoozer down here. Light flurries for an hour now

 

I'm in northern AA (Glen Burnie) and its mod snow... eyeballing it, prob 1/2" already.

Just took a leisurely jebwalk into a part of the woods I haven't been since I was a kid. Beautiful out there. What a turn this winter has taking. Winter is officially saved!

Steady temp of 24 and moderate snow.
