God this event was terrible. .34” of rain. I made fun of Beachin, but I saw photos and looks like Bel Air has at least 2”.

who’s the ****ing idiot now

Yeah, we got hosed.

CWG said 1-3 inches. With a boom of 3-5

We literally got nothing.

Half an inch. Just can't seem to get anything easy this year in my part of Balt City.

.5 is better than 0.0

I’ve been better about taking things in stride, but this one really irked me.

On wunderground.com the forecast for my closest weather station - Stonegate - said 2 inches for today, same underlying source, presumably.

Yeah, I think it was annoying because it did go over to snow for a little bit, around 3pm-4pm ish, so it seemed like it was smooth sailing from there. But then back to rain.

I am a bit sick of the fail.

I got about an inch. It was quite beautiful as it fell. Very peaceful.

IMHO, I'm ok with these small events. Reminds me of a conversation I had with a rabid Nats fan. He was complaining that the Nats are clueless about playing 'small ball' to win games. They are always going for the spectacular home runs. The snow weenies here are like that (me included). We want the HECS every time. But what's wrong with a dozen 1-4" snows? I say Bring Them On!

Are there any public/free products which show this parameter? I can't find one on TT, PivotalWeather or SPC Meso...

Side note: There are some pretty cool new Winter products on SPC Meso

Haven't found anything really.

Up in Newark I am at only 6.5. I think the early January storm was a bit better down here in Harford (I work at APG)

Yea, the more small events, the better opportunity for school closings/delays!  And I am on the teacher side of the school systems.  LOL!  Love my snow days!!

Roughly a half inch.  Too much melting!  Looks nice though!

Snow squall warnings along the M/D line in Adam's, York co. Wonder if lwx will hoist for here 

LWX just issued one for Frederick/Washington MD and Berkeley/Jefferson/Morgan, WV.

Exactly. Maybe they should spend less time giving stupid names to winter weather, more time vetting their data feeds.

I got 3 inches in November and 4.5 inches in early Jan so right now at 7.5  With me a little South of you that makes sense.

Squall looks like it is about 30 minutes away from me. But it is looking a little ragged on radar. I can see high clouds off to the west over the mountains. Looks more impressive on the models for you guys to the east though.

IIRC, squalls don't have high topped clouds so they don't look terribly impressive far from the radar site. Elkins, WV had an indefinite sky and almost SN+ for a time so it could be interesting out your way, but anyone expecting some kind of snow derecho will obviously be left wanting.

Maybe. But I can definitely see grey clouds to my west. And I am sunny here. Maybe it is just the snow falling.

Clouds have over spread here, but no snow.

Not quite. The Weather Company (IBM) owns WeatherUnderground.  The Weather Channel was spun off as a separate entity 3 years ago.
