Central PA - March 2018

Recommended Posts

Just reaching moderate intensity for the first time thus far.  Flakes have also increased in size.  It's beginning to accumulate on the grass and cars now.  I think our immediate area is now finally entering the good stuff looking at NWS radar.  Solid green south to M/D line.

Moderate to approaching heavy snowfall now.  Accumulating everywhere except sidewalks/road.  Temp down to 30.6.  Glad the good stuff finally made it this far north....as it was progged to do.  0.2" of new snow accumulation so far on the board.

Nearly heavy snow now falling with pretty good sized flakes...definitely over 0.5"/hr rates.  No stickage to streets/sidewalks yet, but everywhere else is now white.  Temp down to 30.2, dew point up to 22.  Still some decent evaporative cooling potential left to get down another degree or 2.  Winds have slackened off now at less than 10mph from the NNE.  Accumulation now at 0.5".

Board has slowed down to a crawl.  Is it related to whatever the Euro is showing?  If so, can someone tell us what is has for tomorrow now?

28ºF, Heavy snow, 1.6" so far. Rates have been pretty impressive since the precip shield settled in. Flake structure is really nice as well, with nice aggregates. Def appears to be of the >10:1 variety. It's not having trouble piling up on non paved surfaces. My paved driveway is snowed over but roads are still mostly good with some slush starting to show in spots. The sun only gets weaker from here so if the rates maintain there is probably going to be evening rush issues. 

While that's all going on, the 511pa I-99 cam at the northern end of the county (less than 15 miles north of here) has nothing on the ground. State College cams barely show it snowing.

It's all those NY Weenies bringing down the site haha!

Don't you hate when someone makes comments about a model but then give no details. :(

Back here in Pittsburgh we have about 1/2 inch on the grassy areas.

After a lot of disappointments this winter, it's looking like the good stuff will finally be pivoting west of the I-95 corridor.  I'm right on the border of Lancaster and Chester Counties (right along Route 30), and feeling pretty good about this spot.

Finally I can post. Euro is showing a wicked ccb coming through the area starting tomorrow morning lasting into the afternoon.  For some of those who didn’t get much today, you shall receive tomorrow if it is right. A lot of lsv is is one plus inches of qpf just tomorrow. Even further north gets in on it.  Nice run

Perry and Mifflin counties have really been getting raked the past few hours...more than down here as they have been in dark green on radar for the past 3 hours.  I would think they've got to have over 3 to 4" up their way by now.  I'll have my 5:00pm ob shortly.  I'm pretty sure it will be over 2".

Pretty frustrating to be getting fringed AGAIN on this one... not a single flake here yet and looking at radar it's probably gonna stay that way. Hope yall down south do well and maybe can still get a good ski day in at blue knob this week.

Cashtown you could be looking at almost 2’ when all said and done

Well that would be unreal.    I couldn’t have asked the radar to do any better so far.  That band is still dumping.

At 5:00pm I just measured an additional inch of accumulation since 4:00, with storm total now at 2.4".  Temp steady still at 29.7 degrees.  Sidewalks/street still mainly wet, but look like they make give up the melting ghost within the next hour as the sun gets much lower.  Looking great out there.  Latest NWS radar trends indicate a lessening of intensity overall with the greens maybe diminishing down to blues (for the time being...lol).

At this rate it is looking like the 12K NAM amounts for me / MDT area may end up verifying by 0Z.  I need to go back and check but I thought I posted the accumulations at MDT at 8:00pm tonight were forecast to be 2.9".

Edit>>>oops, a bit off on that.  12K said MDT at 0Z tonight would be at 8" with the 3K saying 4".  Maybe 3K will verify??
