I'm glad some are getting pummeled by this.  Pretty much a yawner since 4am here.

 

Same here.

Check out Dover radar again. Some huge returns headed inland off the ocean. I bet that's part of what the models are seeing when they give us more snow later.

How are the flakes where you're at? I know I keep bringing up flakes, but it's just dust here.

Pretty good. Not fatties but not dust either. I had dust for a while last night. This stuff is piling up well. I am on the southern edge of that band that has been rotating through for a while. I can see on radar that you are just a hair too south for the moment.

For whatever reason, I'm still getting pretty steady snow under this lull.

That's it...I'm moving to Arlington. I'm done with Hollin Hills bull**** totals. It's lulled so long my husband has pulled out the snow blower.

Were really seeing the wind pick up finally in Silver Spring. We've had occasional gusts but mostly just a light breeze all morning. Now the trees are really starting to wave and viz is way down.

Took several measurements all about. Mode number is 17. Round 2 incoming. Another 7 for 2 feet would work. Not too sure about that 24 in Manassas.
