Any word regarding the CT Travel Ban in effect by Gov? Driving back from BWI to Fairfield and want to know if the ban will be lifted by early evening? 

its until further notice.  No timetable given on when it will be lifted

I don't think they really are. Even at peak intensity this morning in the Hartford area it certainly didn't seem like we broached 2" an hour. 

beginning of the end on radar. You can see the dry slot starting to cruise northward. Still several hours of good snow for many folks especially in Mass northward.

that would have been my guess 2 or a little better/hr for an hr or so....45 minutes something like that

maybe we get a few inches on the backside, I figure rates 9-1 or 10-1 so we only got about half the qpf too so far

great storm for parts of lower hv, kinda disappointed in western ct totals so far too

9" and the mix has begun.  A few moderate wind gusts but meh in the wind department overall.

Definitely an underperformed thus far, but it's March so I will take what I can get.

Should have gone to work instead of using a vacation day.

I wonder if that band in eastern NY will pivot through western CT?  Thinking it ends up going off to the northeast and maybe clipping extreme NW corner

Evaporational cooling not a thing?

 

He doesn't mean evaporational cooling, but rather dynamic cooling via intense lift.

Snowing way harder now than when those echoes came through fwiw.  Ground conditions weren't exceptional under that.

Snow growth has really crapped out here. Unfortunately losing too much time in the meat of the storm is never good for reaching higher end totals.

maybe it pivots and gives us some snow showers later and we get an inch or two, I thought maybe we would see one last burst looking at radar a half hour ago but as you say the snow growth is suffering

sun coming out in nj

Wiz absolutely nailed it!! He deserves massive kudos!

great call with the snow growth stuff, the lift couldn't be maximized or whatever but you nailed it man

by far you had the best accum forecast

probably end up low in some spots but I think overall I'm quite happy.  Took alot of crap from people, especially from some friends at school but I held my ground.

Eyewall, PF and I are all awaiting ....  I have about 3" in BTV and PF has about the same in Stowe. There are 12 hours left here in BTV for the snow to kick.....Should be a very interesting 12 hours if BTV reaches the 18" totals that NWS was throwing out there.
