Why is there new WWA up by the way? We're well within 24 hours now. 

Trying to determine if warning criteria is close enough to warrant hoisting given the early nature of the event.

AFD this morning hinted at advisories outside the original warning area. Lets see which models they give more weight to tonight when deciding.

Interesting battle setting up between the Euro/Ukie against the rest. Up until about 2 years ago you could take that combo to the bank. Not so much last year...who will grab the early lead in winter 2018-19?...

Yeah how bout it.  I thought the same thing when I saw ukie and heard Euro was flush....

Where's GEM lining up?

Today’s 12z looked pretty cold, lot of snow on the p-type products. 6+ for most everyone with less in SE PA towards philly. Also has a stripe of a foot plus right up the middle of PA (bit thinner than Euros)

Thanks...I was reading in the forum to our south it was warmer. I should have looked for myself.

Wow, NWS warnings are not sounding as serious as they should. A WWA for York County.  I think that is a bad call but we shall see in 24 hours or so.   I think much of York County should get ready for more snow than than 1-3 and if it does change over quickly then more than 1/4" of ice.

LMAO warnings for ummmm no warning criteria.

First snowfall of the season. Nobody is taking this serious because "the ground is too warm." Sometimes, you have to be aggressive to get attention.

and Carlisle

...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM THURSDAY TO 8 AM EST
FRIDAY...

* WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation expected. Total snow
  accumulations of 1 to 3 inches and ice accumulations of up to
  one tenth of an inch are expected.

 

Adams-York-Lancaster-
Including the cities of Gettysburg, York, and Lancaster

Not sure they are allowed to do that.  Criteria is criteria.

And who, exactly, is going to enforce that? Lol

I would think it’s quite likely that some place in northwestern Cumberland county will meet the warning criteria. I’ve never seen them issue winter storm warnings for parts of counties.

I just called CTP because I was confused and thought the same thing. They told me that when it comes to WSWarnings, there's a gray area with a mix of snow/ice where they can use their discretion to issue a Warnings or Advisory regardless of what the hard-lined all snow vs. all ice scenario criteria say. Their discretion in this case is factoring in that Dauphin, Lebanon, Cumberland, and Perry counties are more traveled than other counties. So while the amounts will be slightly higher than Advisory levels, the higher population and timing is being factored because it'll be more impactful. 

 

Oh, and hey guys! Winter is BACK!

Eric Horst has a 5-8 swath for the majority of this forum. 2-5 elsewhere and .5-2 in the extreme SE.

I contacted them too and was told its due to it being first storm of season, healthy amount of sleet (though I don't think there is ever an amount of sleet that is healthy), and accumulations of freezing rain as to why the Warning and not Advisory

edit: haha just saw that you saw my tweet to them

I would still prefer if they stayed consistent.  They can use the WWA to give people a heads up but the warnings should be for 4" or more or 1/4" ice (unless the criteria has changed since I was here before?)
