Looks like better rates to the south... Finally over to mostly snow I think? Temp has dropped to 34 and still falling which is good. Maybe we LL get a quick inch or two... Going to a drive pretty soon. Redskys area seems like they are getting rocked.

3.75" still heavy maybe heavier and 33.3F

I think we still have some good (meaning heavier) stuff moving up from the S/SW...

6 ~ 6 1/4 so far.  Temp 30.7.  I was down the hill 4 miles away when it started down there, pretty much started driving home then.  Got up the hill and it was all white with the road covered in areas already.  I expected elevation to help with this one.

Snow started just over 2 hours ago here in Allentown. Already about 5" on the ground. Crazy rates here with the band that moved in to start the storm. It's moderate snow now since that band moved out but it looks like another 2" or so is likely based on the radar.

I'd estimate about 2+" so far with some heavy radar returns just off to my SW. Good thing this is a quick hitter -- I could see power outages if this was a long duration event.

Steady snow started just after 5 pm in my area of Allentown.  We had flurries at around 4:30 but nothing more than a trace till just over 30 minutes later.

Mega echoes moving north into PA from DE that will be killer rates, Kamu?

It has been for about the last hour or so - gonna go measure shortly. Had to dry off from the kettle fire, lol. Had the tent up but snow was blowing in towards the end. Awesome though! Just dropped to 32F here a few minutes ago. Interestingly right after it picked up, there was rain mixing in pretty good, but only for about 5 or 10 minutes, then it went back to all snow and has been coming down between moderate and heavy since.
