This will be one to remember.  That h5 was like nothing I have seen in a long time in the short range

We need that for our areas to see something. A BOOM.

Is 6" a good estimate for what Frederick county, MD will get? I've tried to follow and it seems all over the place lol. So, we should see sleet first also with some ice accumulation followed by snow for the second event correct?

I joined in 2010.  I think I was in the second wave.  Not sure where I posted before maybe Eastern.  There was Wright Weather I think.  Before that I think alt.neweatherforum. I think

You’re in a good spot for this.  You’ll be all frozen for the duration of the event - 6-10” is a good forecast for your area at the moment.  You’ll probably have some sleet at the start tomorrow but then you’ll transition to snow; everyone will be snow for the 2nd event.

i actually thought it would feel a little more mild today.  i just shot some hoops outside for 30-40 mins with a light jacket and barely broke a sweat.  what i also like is that it felt dry.  i have a hunch that the northern tier will do well with this storm for the first part.

Maybe psuhoffman will have a HECS total by tomorrow evening, at least by Mdecoy standards.

Wednesday is my 55th birthday, and if it can top the 4" of snow that fell in 2015 it will be the snowiest one I have experienced.  3/21 has often been the date of the equinox and has featured about every kind of weather we find throughout the year.  I can remember birthdays with temps in the upper 70s (several years in a row as a teenager) cold ones like 1986 that was in the teens for a low, and stormy ones (1999, 2000, and 2001 all had heavy rainstorms exceeding 1.50")

Really would enjoy this one being the snowiest.  Fingers crossed.

Thank you! We moved from Florida in October here and we have been so disappointed. I keep telling my husband this is it and he laughs and says he will believe it when he sees it!

Welcome to the area! And you picked a terrible winter as your first winter in the region ;)

I specifically scheduled surgery for early February so that I could sit at home for six weeks and enjoy one or two snowstorms to pass the time. It'll be nice if it finally gets done with five days to spare.
