Weird forecast...how to get 2" from this?

 

A chance of snow before 11am, then rain and snow. High near 41. West wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total daytime snow accumulation of around 2 inches.

Decent stuff heading this way. It better start puking snow if we want to see 2-3" with this sun angle/temps

Yeah it looks pretty good for the next couple of hours.  If this event had started around 5-6AM we would have been in much better shape. Instead we are just starting to get into the heavier precip as noon approaches.  I think we will struggle to get more than a slushy inch in Bellefonte.  I will have to take a drive up Rt 504 to 2400' when I get off work at 3:30.

My office is only at about 775' asl.  Legit heavy snow here now though.  Should be interesting up by the radar site on 504...maxes out at about 2450' up there.

Easily the heaviest snow from a non-squall event for the season. Huge aggregates, visibility under 1/4mi.  Rt 144 south of Bellefonte is starting to get coverage...damn impressive for midday on 3/31.

That's awesome! Meanwhile...56 down here and the sky to the west looks like a thunderstorm is approaching.

Sauss looks like right now I'm in a good spot. Not sure about 5" will go back out in measure in an hour.

Big, wet aggregates falling now. It's cool to see how how reflectivity is above 40 dBz due to these particles being water-coated; essentially we're within the melting layer bright band.

I'll make a pretty reasonable bet Williamsport and Harrisburg see no accumulations. State College is higher so all bets are off there.

Williamsport recorded a daily record of 4.2 inches.

Harrisburg got 0.0

Does anyone know how much State College officially measured?

There was a noticeable increase in accumulation from my office at 775' to my apartment at 860' when I headed home. Then the final burst really put it down and we ended up at 2.7" here. Impressive late season event. Actually not that much more up at 2400', just less dense snow and clinging to the trees and brush more, along with 2-3" on the roadway.

Didn't get anything from today's event, seemed like things bumped just a bit north in the end and focused on the north-central portions of PA from near I-80 on up. Needed the steadier/heavy stuff to overcome the less than ideal b-layer temps today. I'm usually all in for a half decent snow event  if it's available but at the same time I wasn't too beat up about missing this one, I'm ready for things to get warm haha.
