Man, and I was feeling pretty good about our predictions. Gotta love viewers  



They're the best right?! You get no credit for being right, and slammed when wrong. Good times! Lol. I don't envy you. This was a lesson learned about the power of Atlantic warmth. Wish we had a little blocking. That would've been sweet.

No additional snowfall accumulated during the past hour leaving my storm total at 15.2".

The band in western Cumberland that looked promising is now falling apart...so will have to wait a while longer before more bands to the west move east to this area.

Temp has cracked freezing, now at 33.1 degrees, so some minor compaction is going to take place as we approach solar noon.

I'm told 17" here in Summerdale. 3 separate people told that was their measurement 

I had 16" at 11 am so need to go out and check - pretty impressive to have just over an inch an hour rates for nearly 12 hours now

If I complain about snow in the next 5 years you can ban me, very fortunate to finally see what a big snow looks like. Next biggest I remember was PD we had 13 or 14.

Glad for you.

There is a persistent band that is staying close to the Susquehanna river.

MDT at 12 pm still reporting snow with .5 mile visibility.

Steady moderate snow continues in Marysville.

 


It's been light to moderate snow for awhile now in Camp Hill within that band. That band was actually modeled very well on both the HRRR and Hi-Res NAM as being rather persistent till mid afternoon

Much of the LSV and MSV got the unlucky "secondary dry slot" over the last few hours.  You were pretty far from the slp but I guess most models did keep you under 20" so it was modeled fairly well.  Radar really lighting up with a band right now though.  I had told a friend 18-24 so really hoping the Carlisle are gets 2-3 more :-).

Well, just after saying that band was falling apart, it suddenly began to re-develop, and it looks like snow should begin here again in the next 10 minutes.  Will keep you posted!

It looks like it is pivoting from the northeast  & filling back through western Cumberland & Franklin counties to Hopefully meet up with my Susquehanna band to give us a few more inches.

Definitely looks like it's trying to develop that wraparound deform band moving N-S. if you look at KLWX radar you can see it very well

As Mets are being crushed up and down the seaboard, we need to give props to our guys here in this forum and MU's Horst. They all played up the warm air, didn't bite for blizzards in PHL or NYC. 

You guys are some of the best on this board. Thanks for sharing your expertise with us (though Mag looks like you downplayed Williamsport's total haha!).
