Allweather, I see that you are here!

What are your thoughts on today’s storm for the LSV?

Haha, yeah! Been lurking a lot more than commenting. Having a 9 month old baby boy is taking my attention lol. 

 

Juicy Baha Blast (Taco Bell anyone?) system that’s a quick hitter. Careful using 10:1 ratio maps with this one. Can lead you astray. I like Ferrier Method maps via Tropically Tidbits NAM output. Shows vast differences between 10:1 and ferrier. That should be a sign that rimed flakes make accumulating snow tougher south of Route 30. 

 

Heres my map from this morning. If I had to adjust, I’d take the 3-6” line farther SW down I-81 into Franklin Co. 8F28B32D-34E7-4582-B860-11E0D86DB555.jpeg.71153276ead92eaeaa770e19abb2b8e1.jpeg

That wavy blue line extends right over my house. :)

The tip of the arrow center point is over Cumberland County...lol.  Also NWS point-n-click just updated for 3" to 7" total for the storm.  Where's my upgrade to a winter storm warning??? (j/k)

First flurries beginning to fly here.  Let the games begin.

"Particularly near and east and southeast of Altoona and State College."

I was just at the Dam at Lake Raystown. I should have stuck around to see if just being ESE of Altoona would pay off.

Didn't you listen to canderson and STAY HOME!??

Thanks for posting the meso discussion. It’s nice to be in the bullseye.

This event timing is great because it’s a Saturday & it should be over by around midnight, so I should still be able to get a decent night of sleep after the storm is done.

Visibility dropped across the river hills about 30 minutes ago but I haven't seen a flake here yet. Radar does suggest a band over Cumberland, Northern York, and Dauphin counties with a 2nd band farther south into central Maryland with a hole along the southern tier of PA into northern Maryland.

Possibly the best snow rates of the winter??  Came in like a wall and started accumulating immediately even though the temp initially was 36.  Now down to 32.4 degrees with the ground pretty white.  I'd say 0.3" already at least.  Looks amazing.
