December 9/10 Storm

I have seven days until my first final and I went back home with my family. I was hoping the north shift was fake and that the RGEM/NAM we’re wrong. EURO and GFS were only calling for 5” this morning.

I goofed and I won’t forget it soon!

 

The north edge shifts north 90% of the time at the very end.

Officially 11.5" at Richmond. 

 

Credit where credit is, surprisingly, due. DT nailed it, with the possible exception of putting most of Fairfax in the 2 to 4 zone.

As usual we did get the north trend at the end. It's a pretty good bet with southern stream systems. BUT the shift south between 100-72 hours out took us out of it. Had it still been targeting richmond and Charlottesville as the bullseye going into the last 72 hours we would be shoveling right now. Oh well. On to the next episode.

I JUST got home at 8, 1.5 hours for a normal 10 minute drive. This is just INCREDIBLE! I have 20.5 inches of snow on the day, 20 on the snowboard from 7 am (6:30)reading. It is STILL snowing but letting up. This is an epic fail on NWS, my forecast was 3-5 at 5, upped to 6-10 just before I left for work.

That's crazy. January 25, 2000 is the last time I can remember getting hit by a big surprise snowstorm. There's been some smaller to moderate events but nothing that big. What a great surprise!

Radar is falling apart now. It was a good run seeing just one pity flake.

Got lucky in Easton to get a trace. Your up in the Tug Hill of the Delmarva, you will cash in at some point.

What a storm! Good for all that cashed in. I had to laugh at that radar signature earlier that was contoured almost to the exact shape Interstate 66 takes running east/west through Va. Amazing.

That's awesome 

I think we got REALLY lucky on y'alls (north) behalf, the 30-35 dbz's came up to I-64 line and just stayed........for MOST of the day.

We are at 6.4” and the snow actually just picked back up, and it’s all snow again after mixing with a bit of sleet for a time. Great storm down here

Amazing. Happy for you and the southern part of the forum.

Charlottesville gets into advisory level 3-5 locally to 6, EZF 1-2 locally to 3. Then sharp cutoff. Light precip echoes with flurries into DC and to NOVA best case snow setup. North of there...could even see thinning cirrus over the M/D line

Well you got the cutoff right I think... but CHO got 8-12 and EZF around 6".

Looks like the DT snow shield was hit hard by this years budget cuts.

6” in Fredericksburg and 0 flakes at Dulles? That’s the most brutal cutoff I can remember. Would’ve chased there if I knew

Running with a final total of 11.4” in Charlottesville based on what my friends are measuring. Wicked storm. Based on the number of photos and videos I’ve seen it’s almost like I was there.

 

Depends on where you are. Barracks Shopping center has a foot.

Took me an hour to clear a path to my car and get it out.

Local mets noted ratios were 20:1. Can definitely believe that. Was pure powder for hours.

It's only December 9.

Snow is apparently quite a rarity here. So a near miss storm at any point is very disappointing. It was December 9th last year too. Remember how that turned out?
