Ice/Wintery Mix Event 3/1

Recommended Posts

The warning is a joke up here, right? I thought it. just a glaze of ice possible

Snow started here just after 6:00 a.m. Temp had risen to 24 at that time, but back down to 22 now. Currently bordering on moderate, just above 1/2 mile visibility. 0.5" of new snow so far.

26/15 with some extremely extremely small sleet and very very very small snow grains but 95 percent small sleet, 5 percent very small snow grains.

When does that dry slot plan to fill in for central MD? I like my Sunday AM coffee and newspaper reading with a steady snow flying outside. ;-)

based on traffic cams, looks like closest snow is Frederick, maybe a little east now

eurowx gives westminster a half inch of snow and then .2" as freezing rain.

anyone got a sounding for DCA? Looks like that warm nose is a bit stronger than earlier modeled

 

Area of green radar returns is 100 percent sleet. Looks like an elevation snow event this round. Probably go to ZR then a steady plain rain. These are by far the lightest rates I have ever experienced from green 20 dbZ radar returns. I learn something new every day. I thought the precip would be at least a little more substantial from a 20 dbz element.

One of those deals where we should have had a separate thread for the northern areas apparently...

lol I mean, I checked occasionally yesterday but everything I read was "no big deal, just icicles in trees" and now I have a warning? It's whatever, but just wasn't expecting it.

Early March in the middle of the day with a retreating high and rising temps at 8 AM is a good setup for an ice storm around here.

You should be working at LWX apparently.

On the models it fills in between 10am and 1pm so people shouldn't freak out yet.

Have had it all fall from the sky this am, sleet, snow and freezing rain. A 70% sleet, 20% freezing rain and 10% snow mix falling now. It has gone back and forth several times since it started. Currently 27/DP 21

enough snow/sleet to coat everything that was bare, plus a little ZR on top to give that nice glazed look.

Looks to be filling in right now. I think sooner rather than later is probable. I got my snow "weenie" eyes staring out the window very intently now.

26/20 and cloudy. I am expecting rain being so low elevation and attempting to go to church later.

Hope I don't come out to a bunch of freaking out drivers in sleet or freezing rain.

The green return that brought the extremely small sleet particles, was very skinny as it passed over me. Now it has expanded - to my east. Leavin' me in the light blue returns with vanishingly small sleet lmao. VERY anticlimactic and strongly underwhelming. Why for cryin' out loud, did I even bother to stay up for this.

 

 

EDIT: I just went out to check what i thought was melting small ice pellets on my car top.

We have very small sleet AND freezing drizzle, already. It's 25 degrees. This stuff is freezing on contact. Even light FZDZ or light ZR can really ice things up proper! Maybe this will turn out to be an interesting storm after all!!!!!

 

I'm definitely NOT so disappointed NOW! Just give me steady freezing drizzle and temps well below freezing all day and all night!!!!!! WOOT! WOOT! WOOT! WOOT! WOOT! Man I am so damn HAPPY now its unbelievable!!!! I LOVE ICE WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!!! It's soon gonna be time to get out there and SLIDE!!!!!  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

Green returns are forming to my immediate west!!! Even more of my beloved freezing rain and sleet INCOMING!!! At 25 degrees!!!
