Question:  How long is Fairfax County from north to south?  I ask because northern Fairfax got three times as much snow as southern Fairfax (including yours truly).

The NAM shows a dip in surface temps in much of the area between 9Z and 12Z. Picking up on the snow cover at the surface?

As the precip lightens maybe less mixing down of warmer air aloft? Less latent heat release?

6" of snow today plus sleet on top and now pouring freezing rain and 28 degrees. My road hasn't been touched by a plow once and it is a solid icy mess.

no idea how to get an accurate measurement. Blew into drifts bad. I got 8" in the low spots but drifts up to 20" in places. Of course way more low spots then drifts so no idea. It's 8+ I know that but how much more would be a guess.

It's definitely over 8 but I don't have a real good place to measure like I usually do because of the wind. I was really surprised by how much wind we had. That one spotter 1 mile SSW of town came in at 7.4 at 8 o'clock and that seems too low. I'm waiting to see what that other spotter says who is 3 miles SSW of Linboro. He is only 1 mile from my house but he was running low with his report from 1:40 in the afternoon. 8.5 seems reasonable.

Western Fairfax climo is much different from Eastern Fairfax. Western Fairfax (areas like Reston and Herndon) have a similar climate to mine in Eastern Loudoun. Much higher elevation than areas east of say Centreville. We got banded early on and often and thus the big difference in totals.

Gonna call it an even 5" imby. Saw a report for 6" in town.

 

When I left for work  (~5:30 pm)...it looked like we were around 4" in Crofton.  Was there another 1" after that?  Looked like we were starting to mix/change to sleet around 5:45.

Yup.  And living in Alexandria, Fairfax County near the line with Alexandria City, I know that there is a big difference.

 

I asked the length-of-the-county question because I was trying to explain to my parents the difference in totals and couldn't give a distance.

I really cant believe the condition of I81 right now through this area. It stopped snowing for 2 hours and the road is still a complete disaster. How does one of the major N/S arteries on the east coast get neglected like that. Its really atrocious.

Pshhh you should see the side roads. That last storm we got 9" never plowed the m'fing street once what a complete moron the director of public works or whatever the heck it is for our county. Main roads dry as a bone that boggled my mind.

Yeah, the glaze mentioned earlier in the thread--- it's thick over the sidewalks here, as well as in the circle in front of my building.

Yeah, the glaze mentioned earlier in the thread--- it's thick over the sidewalks here, as well as in the circle in front of my building. 

Went out to dinner earlier so was gone since like 6.. walked about 2 miles in that time and never really saw more than slush so was kind of surprising (tho makes sense) to see our sidewalks totally iced over.. they're always good at clearing, I guess that was a bad thing today. ;)

My point and click forecast:

Overnight Rain, freezing rain, and sleet before 2am, then snow, freezing rain, and sleet likely between 2am and 4am, then rain, freezing rain, and sleet likely after 4am. Low around 30. Southwest wind 5 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime ice accumulation of less than a 0.1 of an inch possible. Total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

 

Wait wut... That's interesting

My point and click says high of 39 and mostly cloudy tomorrow. With the added moisture content from the freezing rain I don't think we'll lose much snow pack at all tomorrow. Come Monday this stuff will be like a glacier.  :sled:
