January 12-13th Cold Smoke Obs and Nowcast

Recommended Posts

Here in Augusta County:

Part 1 gave me over an inch, then there was a lull in which it never stopped snowing.  Now entering Part 2 of the storm which should have the most qpf and the best returns .  Snow is picking up and radar looks juicy to my sw.  Part 3 on Monday that some models are showing would be icing on the cake.

For folks north of I66 there may be no lull at all. The area of precip in WV is moving west. Radar is filling back in already. We're in a really good spot for this event

Area of precip moving west in WV?  Uh oh ;)

Deck and sidewalks caved. Roads just wet so far... but starting to look a little white. Temp has now dropped below freezing.

31/25

Hrrr usually dont do a jump like this but it made a pretty big adjustment this run lol

Hrrr initializes with current radar so it can be very jumpy with precip progressions during large/dynamic storms. Use with caution

Always fun to see two CWAs up against each other and see their forecast. 

Lwx = ~4 imby

state college = 6" across the md line in pa 

lol can I hug that instead?

Take a look at some of the loops in wv/ky/tn. Heh... we'll see how well it holds together but there is no shortage of juice to work with

Wonderful fire in the fire pit, grandson came by. Just had my mother’s funeral on Thursday so this is a spirit lifter.

Good.  Hope that keeps up.  So many things have to come right for this event which always makes you nervous.  The straight up Miller As that come screaming out of the south are so much easier on the nerves.

Sorry for your loss, glad for the snow now to help lift your sprit.

i can honestly say i don't care too much what amounts we end up with, though i still think we do fine as the system takes shape and starts to transfer it's energy to the coast.  it's just nice that it's a weekend and we have a long duration snow to experience.  it's only jan 12.  even if we end up with 2-3", we have plenty of time for a bigger event.

with that said...radar looks decent.  i expect the lull to fill in a bit to the west as the precip gets shunted to the east as it runs into that stout high.  just got home from hitting the gym and flake size was ideal...just need the rates.

Steady light snow in Columbia - sticking immediately. I’m going with 4-8” area wide and calling it a day. Time to enjoy.

A healthy 0.5" on our deck and cars in Silver Spring, just inside the Beltway. Our local street with no traffic has spots of white now but is largely black.

I'm showing 30.6 degrees.

I left my Christmas patio decorations up just for this storm.  Beautiful out. 

1.25"

Beautiful. And...I'd almost be tempted to rip the cover off that (presumable!) firepit and sit out there in the snow and enjoy an IPA or three. Or bourbon. Or (fill in your favorite beer/spirit here).
