February 11 -12 Winter Storm Threat

Recommended Posts

Cleared one table at 10 am when it changed to sleet after 3/4" of snow - left one deck table with snow on it and cleared the other.  As of noon, we've gotten 3/8" of sleet in about 2 hours, so it would take a little over 5 hours at this rate to get 1" of sleet (which is normally about 0.33" of LE at 3:1), which seems consistent with modeled precip rates.  The sleet hasn't compressed the snow at all, as the depth of the undisturbed table is 1 and 1/8", probably because there was some sleet in that snow and that snow is likely denser than 10:1 (maybe 7-8:1 with sleet filling the interstices between flakes well).  Down to 27F here and it looks like surface temps don't get to 32F for ~25 miles to my SE or S, so hopefully plain rain is hours away...

Just drove the kid to Rutgers New brunswick. There wasn't much going on here but as I got to the Raritan River all hell broke lose. Intense sleet bands near Douglas. And kids walking around in pajamas ( kids today ). It was pretty bad, but kinda peaceful from the car. back in Woodbridge now to light snow and the normal precip hole.

Just changed back to snow here around 1 pm - wow, did not expect that!  Coming down moderately.  As of 1 pm, we're up to 1/2" of "new" sleet (with a little snow) and the other table has 1 and 1/4" on it, as it should.  Still 27F.

Turned back to snow here 28 degrees on Middlesex/Union border with a little sleet mixed in

Did we get that heavy sleet band out here? I was under one in New Brunswick an hour ago. I mean heavy.
