Really ripping in Ashburn. Winds up. Visibility down. Best snow of the storm by far.
are you sure that's sleet? It could be rimed snow or graupel
your right just looked at the stuff falling on top of the snow it's round graupel not sleet
Forgot to bring my measuring tape out on this jebwalk, but it's still coming down hot. Flakes are a bit small I think? It's accumulating fast though. 22 degrees. Snow is coming up to my calves. - 2:23 AM
CC is actually showing the sleet line getting pushed back east towards the bay. Maybe there's some right along the Bay near Annapolis, but it looks like it's losing the fight.
This is just going to keep going all night. Fire hose of precip lined up with the bay aimed for our area.
But the "dry slot" is getting closer
Heaviest snow in Bel air yet awesome rates Mega band aligning down south over the bay should be headed for Eastern CMD-ES-NE MD over the next hour.
Walked out to the middle of CT Ave at Wyoming Ave in DC and there was 3-4" on the road. Snowing hard here in Adams Morgan.
0215 measurement: 9.0"
DeathMetalBand delivered 1.75" in the last hour
Over 2"/hr rates easy. Pushing a foot now.
It's getting attacked from ne as well now. I think the city is safe.
I think that is key if this is going to be a top DCA storm
The stream from the south is building west a bit
Oh yea man. It's dumping. I'm going to measure at 2. Amazing night.
I went out in that band and it was magical. 2"/hr stuff easy. Fronto on SPC looks amazing for our area. Could easily get to 20" by 7-8am at this rate. Beautiful.
Literally right over DCA!
This is insane
I just measured 3 spots around 11.5 inches. Pouring snow out there. This is awesome. It does seem as though that next band in SoMD kind of wants to go a bit east. We'll see. Crazy rates.
Just took several measurements - 8 inches now - was at 5.5 at midnight so 2.5 in last two and a half hours - have been dozing but absolutely ripping here now - Roland Park area balt city

Matt what's the latest measurement? I got to be pushing 12" by now..
7.5" or so in Pikesville. Coming down nicely
what is that coming up the bay? it puking outside!! super Blizzard
We are still close - thanks for the obs - validates my measurements.
My area has been getting pummelled for the last hour at least. Easily 2"/hr bands. I may have to put some clothes on and go measure.
Pivot time I hope.. Getting close to the dry
Just measured 12.5" in Del Ray. Wind makes it hard to get a clean measurement, but have a protected area on back deck. This storm is amazing.
Sorry for shoddy pic quality...
That thing coming up the Bay....
First legit lull in a while ending. You can see the lull much better on the state college radar than you can on the sterling one.
Getting pummeled right now in Sterling.. waiting for that orange band in Arlington.
you think it'll make it to bel air?
Next band lining up and looks just as good as the last.
