Sleet won't be denied. Yet another taint-fest as expected.

Sleet mixing in here.  50/50 sleet snow  14.6  Only 3" ish has accumulated

I apologize for my 3" ish post.  I have some other stuff to deal with tonight so eyeballed railings.  Snow has been so fine the railings are not good representation.  Went out and did a few measurements on flat open surfaces.  its almost 5.5" 

Back to sleet

Just slamming it down this evening lol.

I’m not mad. It looks nice. Just saying that’s one hell of a bust. But I didn’t  even see Gene’s report. It’s good for them though. Toughens then up.

Any ideas on why the ptype was zr with this DTW sounding? Peak warm nose of 1.2C with 30mb of depth and a cold boundary layer underneath. DTW reported 0.41" of ice accretion via ASOS. Toronto and Hamilton also had a lot of freezing rain today even when the soundings look predominantly suggestive of IP with a relatively high (750-800mb) warm nose with lots of cold air underneath.

Was the peak warm nose warmer and thicker than that 00z sounding? Was the most maximized near the warm tongue? Those are two questions I would ask.

That was 12z, I'm not sure about stuff before and after for DTW. The model soundings for YYZ  from 12z for 18-21z this afternoon/evening generally had fairly small and high warm nose near 1 C, but they ended up with 4 hours of zr. Is there some sort of cloud microphysics/lift arguments for zr with less pronounced warm noses? idk.

Well I’m on phone but at first guess it appears DGZ area is fairly dry so lacked ice nuclei. Then I see lift in the lower levels where temps might supper more super cooled liquid.

Roads, by all accounts were a disaster since 3pn.   My neighbors just drove back from the airport in Hartford, they said I 91 was still completely snow-covered and they finally got off in Easthampton and took Route 5/10 back to Greenfield.
