Pretty crazy storm. I remember turning on my back deck light yesterday evening to watch the snow fall. Doing it again this evening. And "only" 7+ inches during that 24 hour period.

same here.  I wonder how much more we can steal before it moves away.

I live right near DCA and if thats all the record then I dont know what to say. I am probably more near 8, maybe more now. 

The DCA update was from 1 pm today. They have not updated since to my knowledge.

Outer band in wv panhandle is moving east now. Turn has begun and slp off the coast is pulling away. Normally i'd say expect radar to fall apart over the next 2 hours but all bets are off on this one. This storm already broke all the rules. Why stop now?

Another 0.5” since I last measured so I’m at 8.7”

8.75” and stuck in a little subsidence, hoping to get to 10+

My 8.5 sounds good then

Check your math, big guy.  Western extent is still expanding west.

Inverted troff FTW. Models still stink at handling these.  If we had wind, it would be almost like 2/10/10.

Moco is getting raked. Radar looks like yellow french fries 

I needed a snow like this so bad, I was convinced this doesn’t happen here.

 

I think I’m a lock for 10” in Germantown, May already be there.

I like to use this loop to see the subsidence on the back end of storms coming through.  Sure, it's composite but that's helpful in seeing the non (or very light) precip features.  It's helpful for the back edge hallucinations that are created by the spine of the mountains to our west as well since LWX radar does not typically see over the ridge tops but KRLX and KBPX can see what's over there.
