approx 5-6 inches here, expect a bit more today as SN- continues

had an hour last night between 12-1 some of the heavier snow of the year 2in/hr stuff, it was pouring and heavier than any point during the 'big' storm a couple weeks ago

lots of snow on the ground, im guessing the most since i moved here in 2012. 

i will be staying inside today, not a fan of wind and cold as my bones get older....

Apparently New Haven schools are sending their kids home at noon because of this. Caution the better part of valor I guess?

Based on HRRR there looks to be some small mesos embedded in the line. That could be wild for some 

Snownadoes most likely . Could see a lot of damage that folks won’t see happening in whiteouts. It’s a solid line, so every town sees the squall

Some areas will get lucky and prob score 2 inches from these. Others will get a 7-10 split and probably cuss out windex. 

This one does have more potential than typical though.

The cusses will be out in droves in the split areas. Think the south coast of NE has highest wind potential

I'm surprised by over 5 inches of snow in my neighborhood. Don't think it rained at all. Never got out of the twenties Fahrenheit. Beautiful morning bright cold and white.

AEBYT (as everyone but you thought)

1 inch of snow here..maybe a bit more, but calling it an inch.  13.75" on the season.  2 hour Delay for our schools..which is very nice.  3 Delays so far this winter, and no missed snow days(I know, I just Jinxed it now for sure) so We are out the 11th of June if we continue on the futility spectrum and have zero snow days.    Maybe a delay tomorrow too with the Arctic Cold and Windchill values??  We take.

I won't cuss it because I perceive them as being fraudulent by default.

 I get the intrigue...its a weather forum, etc....but a random inch for like 30% of the board doesn't do much for me.

The rates are what make them interesting for me. An inch or two falling over 6 hours is pretty bleh, but if it falls in 20-30 minutes, that's different. 

But yeah, like severe wx, don't expect it and be pleasantly surprised if it hits you.

...Arctic Front Expected to Bring Snow Squalls this Evening...

National Weather Service meteorologists are tracking an arctic
cold front that is currently moving through central Pennsylvania
and upstate New York and is poised to cross through New England
this evening. This front will bring a line of snow showers and
squalls...gusty winds...and significantly colder temperatures.

Snow squalls are expected to arrive along the Connecticut Valley
of New Hampshire after 4pm...reaching western Maine after
6pm...and the Midcoast region of Maine after 8pm.

Within snow squalls...brief...local whiteout conditions are
possible...with wind gusts over 40 mph. If conditions
warrant...snow squall warnings may be issued as this front passes.

Please be prepared for rapidly changing road conditions this
afternoon and evening and plan extra time to reach your
destination.

Yea...agree with all of this.

I'm busy today, anyway...so probably wouldn't even enjoy it if I got hit.

What time out here, like 5?
