Check the 850's to our west/sw, they 0 line is in Central Kentucky and not making significant northward inroad.  It about 25* up top so milder than surface and  the Arctic Assassin is winning early.

Totally ripping big flakes in Leesburg, drove from Leesburg to Ashburn earlier on backroads and they were terrible. Sycolin Road southbound is basically impassable with a line of cars stuck going uphill just south of JYO.

 

Wanted to throw out one single call out for my company, StormPins. You can share your storm pictures and observations in our app. Search for StormPins in Google Play or Apple App Store.

Heavy snow band is about two miles NW of me. You can see it cutting across the water where visibility goes to zero - there is another 3 miles on the other side before you get to Glen Burnie / Pasadena area.

Hooray for general consistency. Without you guys I would think I'm crazy. Snow picked up a little again, but flakes still minuscule.

once a storm is underway, I mellow out and my attitude is just to be grateful for whatever falls. Sometimes things don't unfold the way we want or progress according to plan. We aren't in the best spot climo-wise. I'm rarely disappointed in any storm that gives me accumulating snow, unless it is some huge epic bust where I get 0.5 and we were under a warning.

These huge flakes everyone is talking about is not a joke.  They are actually the biggest flakes I've ever seen.  It looks like rocks landing on top of the old snow.  These are easily bigger than golfball sized.

NWS has DCA going over to FZRAPL at 20Z...gotta say I do not see that at all.

I think it might start getting more rate dependent as we get later in the afternoon but yea we are locked in for now. This is a snowstorm right now and nothing else.

That is one big mega band of heavy snow SW of dc! can anyone confirm it is all snow?

 

We are all snow for at least the next few hours. I'm not concerned at all. People under those echos are getting it really good. I wasn't even under one of those and got 1.1" in the last hour.
