2/19-20 Winter Storm Observations

Recommended Posts

For anyone worried about the “hole” to the south, that isn’t our problem from DC north.  The current radar and all the modeling indicates that the second round of precip is from the expansion/enhancement of the shield from the west.  The remaining question is whether that can get here in time to head off the sleet line (which is coming, but can be effectively slowed by heavier precip).

Ob:  Nice fat flakes falling.  Not pouring snow, but not exactly a lazy fall either.

Yeah a nice WCB thump there as that whole thing sort of rips east and then almost SE. Weird to see, but will help offset the IP line for a time.

There are some reduced RhoHV values north and east of Albemarle County indicating sleet mixing. Still > 100 km from the LWX radar. Also, enhanced ZDR values outside of the heaviest bands indicate good ice crystal growth. Decreases in ZDR and large increases in reflectivity (ZH) in the heavier bands indicate an efficient aggregation process as the aggregates lose their horizontal alignment/extreme aspect ratios.

This is crazy heavy here. I literally cant see the houses 100 yards away from me. Haven't seen rates like this since GB16. 

Sounds like 2" per hour rates?

Insane rates right now.  If this can keep up for just a couple hours.....

Congrats on the jack. Lots of dirt here

NW of DC tucked into the highlands there and NE into MD look pretty good. I think that's where mappy is?

hey Scott -- I see you're stirring up trouble :P 

I'm still sitting under dry air and watching wasted qpf go by on radar. here's hoping that ends soon. I'm due north of Baltimore FWIW

Probably more than that with that kind of visibility.

I work near Manor Hill and your snow has an impact on my workday, so it's all good!

Nice man! I live right down the road from the manor hill main brewery off 108. Home to the Moco Hoco death band

Everyone without snow, get a slug of sipping whiskey and relax. The next band will break the seal. It's ten minutes away from Bmore.

Enjoy it man...hope the flakes start flying soon for you (beyond the ones in here).

What's better than 1 MoCo deathband before 9am?

Answer: 2 deathbands before 9am

Should top 2" here shortly

Good stuff lol!

My service call was an easy fix...so headed home . Us northerners have lots of catching up to do :snowing:

Great to see you back ..
