No it doesn't.  That's a 10:1 snowfall map.  Fv3 doesn't provide the depth charts yet.

You can use both. Obviously change in snow depth is more conservative but you can use snowfall to measure accumulation too

I know it is 10:1, but kuchera says expect better than that.  I wasn't aware of a rule that says we all go by depth charts.  Are the surfaces not cold enough up there?  It is 33 degrees down here right now and last night was 26, so there won't be much difference between snowfall and snow depth imo.

Amazing watching that huge slug of moisture look like it's already hitting a brick wall across the south.

We will get ours.  I’m not worried. Well unless I’m saying this in mid March. ;)

Not all that worried, though hate wasting opportunities. More just in awe of how a storm, especially this early in the year, loaded with moisture doesn't want to climb at all.

Yes. I get it. I’m definitely not happy either, but if you look ahead (especially the LR thread), the look doesn’t get much better for weeks and weeks on end. We’ll probably be sick of snow by end of January. LOLz. 

 

Eta: Who I am kidding. Never can be sick of it.

Indeed - been like that all day.  TN is barely 100 miles thick N-S.  All those reds and oranges across the middle of TN and nada just N of Nashville.  Brutal E/W cutoff along a 1300+ mile front.

DT strategically put RIC right on the 4-8 and 8-12 lines so if RIC gets anywhere between 4-12" he'll claim victory. 

That’s just smart lol

We are in like the 0-4 range. 

25% 0

50% 1-2

25% 3+

I mean we are just far enough south of the city we could squeeze out .25 qpf

Maybe you.  Every mile will matter and I’m about 15 from you.  But I expect some solid obs.

He does that on almost every map with bigger cities.

I think most of us south of DCA but north of EZF know around an inch is what we should be looking for at best.  If we get more, so be it.  If it's a dusting or just flurries, oh well, its snowing
