✨Pittsburgh PA ❄ Winter 2018-2019

Recommended Posts

Freezing rain at the time in the south hills. My commute (though only 15 minutes) was all rain. There was a sheet of ice on my car, but was all rain while driving. Car temp was at 33°. Currently at both airports (KPIT and KAGC) they are reporting 30° and light freezing rain.

 

Watching the 850mb temp maps, it does appear that some of that warm air, whether it be through evaporative cooling or the ULL pushing closer, is being suppressed further south. Hopefully, we start to see some flakes fly in the next few hours and still pick up a couple inches

rain

when in doubt, climo wins out

I think we are up to 25" of fantasy snow so far this year

Hey, I think we could set a new record for digital snow this season, especially with a start like this.

All rain here, hovering just over freezing at the surface.  Like others, there was a slight glaze this morning, not much else to report.

The surface temperature along/south of I-80 will likely rise
above 32 in the next few hours so that a transition from FZRA to
RA will likely be observed. This may be short-lived as the
comparatively cold mid-level system enters the area. With
colder mid-level air in place, precipitation will transition
back towards a wintry mix, and eventually all snow. This
transition will likely take place along/north of I80 by around
sunset and elsewhere by 10PM or shortly thereafter.

Snow accumulation will be highest in the north and along the
ridges, where 6+ inches is possible. The Pittsburgh Metropolitan
area will likely see varying accumulation from upwards of 3
inches along hilltops to possibly just a dusting in the
vicinity of downtown PGH. Of course, exact amounts may vary on
exact placement of mesoscale banding around the low tonight.
Snow totals will be updated as needed.

Snow accumulation will be minimal back towards eastern Ohio and
the Ohio River Valley area of WV, where just a brief dusting is
possible.

I wish the Canadian would verify. It shows a changeover to snow around 6 and some decent snows until 11:00 or so.

Well HRRR and RGEM show a quicker changeover but who knows. Usually the warm air always wins. Let's remember its November and there will be plenty of time to be pissed about being screwed.

Always right over our area.

Weather.com has Crescent, PA getting 3-5 inches.  That’s just changed.  I’m stumped.  

Not sure how Weather.com makes their forecasts, but the HRRR is spitting out 5 in to come for the area. Not buying that, but i do think we have white grass tomorrow morning.

Sleeting here now. NWS has updated for earlier change.

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/...
An early eve update was issued to adjust precip type as cold mid
lvl air is generating a quicker mix/change to sleet and snow
across the region. This transition will continue through the
evening as the mid level slides over the immediate area.

We have maybe half an inch of snow at this point?  I have to find some way to measure at this place for bigger events.  At least we got some of the white stuff.

I ended up with 2.5" of snow.  This snow was very juicy with melted equivalent of 0.31", that's about an 8 to 1 ratio.  Total precip including melted snow was 1.05".  Temperature ranged 33 to 32 in the 24 hour period.   Now our electric is going off and on occasionally with the light wind picking up.

Branches on my trees are droopy today. Very heavy and wet snow. A couple of flakes still flying out there this morning. Eastern suburbs looking to get another quick hit here in the next half hour or so. Should look like a snow globe :snowwindow:

Anyone up in Lawrence County today? Snow looks like it coming down hard on the radar. Returns are nice. All rain down here. Just curious as to some observations from up north
