It appears we may get another burst that's southwest of us.

Oh nice! Yeah, got a decent coating here but nothing crazy.

When things were unclear as late as this morning my bar for this event became 2. Looks like will end up around 3 so I'll take it. I was just hoping to have something on the ground for the arctic blast so Ill call this a success. Give me a good squall tomorrow and another 2 inches on friday then this week will be a win for sure.

One more heavy band to go through in DC in next 1-2 hours... back edge is rushing east and is getting to Frederick County already.

Just drove from Gaithersburg to Rockville and roads were definitely becoming covered.  If y’all pass a slow car with an Alabama license plate just go around, not used to driving in the snow yet ha. 

Germantown but started in gaithersburg moving from Louisiana. Us southerners will never get used to it.

Interesting how the NWS expanded the WWA to the sw and west this late in the game (was posted at 3:26pm), just as the western edge started to pivot to the east.   Seems a bit late unless they know something we don't.  I don't detect any back filling on the radar, but someone earlier did mention the HRR showed some potential wraparound later, albeit for the eastern side of the beltway and east of there.  (the DC beltway)

yep, looks like one more band to go.  this really did hightail, though isn't that how cold fronts usually work anyway.  just glad that we were able to get more than choppy flakes.

With this event I have already passed last years snow total for the season. Shows just how pathetic last winter really was. I am at roughly 60% of climo with all of February left. I will be shocked if I dont hit climo this year in all honesty.

That looks legit.

Meh. It might drop a half inch. Radar looked great an hour ago and now it’s stopped snowing.

Snow train ride home.  Left DC at 330.  Liquid rain;little sleet.  By the time I got to Silver Spring it was all snow.  Now to Point of Rocks 2-3 inches everywhere....will have to clean my car off at Brunswick....best train ride home in my 20 plus years of commuting!
