RAP is even more aggressive this latest run.  another ~0.45 for DC, and end time of the good stuff pushed back to 7-8pm

 

Yeah, the RAP holds even lighter precip through midnight, from the looks of it.  I'm only viewing the somewhat lower resolution view on Instant Wx Maps...looks like it tries to get around 0.50"+ precip in the DC metro area through the end (the dark blue color), and ~5-6" snow.  But like I said, that may not be the best resolution and I'm eyeballing it.  Either way, a good amount still left to come it appears!

Just went for a walk in complete whiteout conditions.  Snow past my knees and I'm 6'5. Some drifts well past my waist up to my chest.  Currently getting some of the heaviest snow I've seen in Herndon.  This is an amazing storm.

Look how the bands dropping in from PA have filled in the radar in western MD.

I see RIC  airport is up to it's ole shennanagins....... I saw a report that they are officially measuring 6". I live literally 3 miles from there and I have 11".

Agreed.   Unless that 6" of NEW snow which it might be. 

I'm 3 miles south east of airpoirt.. and have picked up 7" of new snow today. 

5" yesterday of snow.    2.5" sleet.     Then 7" since then.       13.5" snow total so far.   Snow depth in my yard ranges from 11" to 13"

The precip should wrap up from the SW to the NE.  So in that direction.  The backedge is not progressing west yet, however, because the low is stalled over the DelMarva.

I realize that I am sick. I'm really SICK.

 

But I want that low to stay stalled for at least a week.

I've never wanted something as bad as I want that low over the Delmarva to stall out for days and days.

Just straight RIPPING snow in Crystal City right now.  I cant even see the airport anymore and I'm right next to it.  Probably some of the best snow I've ever seen.  Went for a walk and took some photos/videos.  Definitely whiteout conditions.  Awesome stuff!!

Just keep whining about dryslots. It worked last time.

It did. But it was so fun to lull for 4 hours
