Down to light snow here, almost flurryish at the moment. Looking at the radar, it almost looks like I'm in a bit of a subsidence zone.

Yep, we're done pretty much. Coastal precip is clearly consolidating into the deform band while the precip from our area west rots away. Great storm though!

After 3 separate measurements I have an average of 11" OTG. No clue how much my actual total was/is before compaction. Thrilled beyond belief. 

Awesome event. Way to “ help” bring this one in.

Horst tweeted ground totals of 12 to 14 inches on MU campus so official totals will probably be higher.

It was...once I got home...lol

If I were home from the start of it, I may have been able to measure up 10 inches, but I didn't get home until almost noon. By the time I was able to measure, I'm sure some compaction had already taken place. Lat measurement was at 3:30pm and I had 8.75".

13.2" is the snowfall total here.. with 9.8" of that falling essentially between 4am-4pm today. That's my best storm since Feb 5-6, 2010 (17.5"). The other 2 big ones I've had in the last 8 years were Feb 10, 2010 (12.5") and Jan 22, 2016 (10.7"). This is also the first big one since moving into my new home, which has a ton of good views to watch a snowstorm. I had been beginning to think I'd have to wait til next winter for a chance at the next big one before this week. 

Now that the board looks like it's working.. here's some pics

Just saw a report from Justin Berk who lives about 5 miles from me here in York County and he said he has 14 or 15 inches on the ground, but that he received a total of 20" before compacting/melting.  :o

Sounds about right I just measured 16 inches on the ground.  What a great storm!

Compaction's going to be an issue with many folks' measurements. Last measurement I took, I was at 9, but it probably would have been 10 or 11 if it were colder/fluffier.

Congrats Mag! We here in Pittsburgh have been in the same boat as you all these years. We received 8 inches to 10.4 at the airport. All of ours came today too. We only picked up an inch with the first wave yesterday. Thanks for coming into the Pittsburgh thread and helping out with the forecasts. Because you are so close to us you are welcome anytime. Congrats to everyone in PA who scored and hopefully we can all have a nice 2019 Winter next year.

After a slow morning we came on like gang busters after lunch. Final numbers for the storm from Ephrata. 11.1" from both days. Melted liquid of .97" which is a bit over 11:1 ratio for the storm. Very good considering we had sleet early this morning for a short time. Somehow I stand at 37.3" for the season which is 140% of climo.

Not completely sure you're finished yet...a couple of bands are rotating southwest toward you. Maybe?

Thanks Mike this area did really well.  I'm just glad most us had a great finish to Winter.  I'm getting excited for fall already.  Lol

As much as I love snow, clearing my property and my neighbor's kicked my butt. I won't be disappointed if we are missed.
