Radar looks great just to my north. I wouldn't be surprised if the M/D line ends up with 6-7". Hope it fills in further south.

Dunno the dryslot is lifting north pretty fast.

0.5" of new snow in the past half-hour here.  Pouring giant flakes right now at 32 degrees.

Same here.. .5" new.  Of course returns lift N of me as soon as I flip to snow.  Not sure we can hang onto a cold column until more steady precip arrives...

Per SPC mesoanalysis, the 925 mb 0° line is now working towards I-66...meanwhile the 850mb 0° line is lifting a bit north...just north of I-70.  Really a nowcast event tonight.

5.7”. This is a two-lane road

edit: the pic makes it look like it’s pouring snow - it’s not, that’s the windshield. It’s light-mod currently.

Just went outside and my elevated deck isn't even icy, which really surprised me. Must be sitting a little above 32.

1st WSW tonight for us.  Pushing 7" here, never changed to rain.  A few pockets of sleet/snow mix around 1600 EST.  Jarrettsville MD, Harford County.  Plowed out the lane at 15:30 and now it's snow covered.  Back roads are freezing up.  School tomorrow is 2hr late.  Probably announce closed tomorrow.  That would be six days now.

Our blue spruces and balsams are sagging and we've had a few power flickers this evening.  Lots of 13.8kV and 7.2kV overheads in the woods this way so it doesn't take much to cause something to pop.  Thank goodness for reclosers.  (and standby generators!)

3.0 total snow/sleet accumulation. 

Hard to tell exactly, there was a lot of melting going on while it was snowing this afternoon.

00z gfs has some snow getting into DC by 12z Wednesday lol

Now that's what I've had a question about: you see the models show back edge snow on some of these cutters...yet we don't see it often this winter. Why do they show that? (But seeing as it's still showing up this close...maybe it's possible?)

Measured at 3 am, 4.5 inches with a temp sitting a touch over 30 degrees. After what looks to be a lull that we had overnight we are now seeing the snow pick up once again with light freezing mist mixed in.

@psuhoffmanBe careful on your drive down to Balt. We have a light glaze of ice on everything and the roads look rough and look to stay that way if not deteriorate. Hopefully you are leaving late enough that the dreaded sun angle will melt everything away. :)  I hope things go well for your son.

eta: Just glanced again and we have seen a slight drop in temps with snow and small pingers mixed in as the freezing mist has backed down.
