Over to almost all/all ZR and rain. 32 degrees so there's only a light glaze of ice. Since we got around .3" sleet in the last hour, I'm going with 3" as my final snow/sleet total

thats what i got :)

Heavy sleet for hours is rare here for a reason.

Yea makes me aporeciate 1994, 2007, and that March storm in 2017 more. Only 3 times I’ve seen significant sleet pile up.

Snow coming to an abrupt end here.  Came down hard the last three hours but the back edge moved in quickly.   

2.5 inches and that is decent for it starting at 9:30 AM.  Might have to shovel, and clear the cars.  28 degrees. 

Roads pretty nasty.  Brine did little good here.

1” sleet/snow since I swept my spot. 3.5” total so far. 

 

Will likely be the last bit as temps are soaring. Up to 31 after being 29.9 just about an hour ago. 

Sleet changing to zr and soon will be just rain after I lose freezing temps

You did slightly better with the sleet than I did -- only 0.8" here since I measured (and swept) with the sleet transition.  Felt like rain when I was out. 

1:05pm - 3.3" (2.5" snow, 0.8" sleet), SSW Franconia/Kingstowne, Fairfax County.

3.7” with flurries.

If this is it, then it puts me at just under 20” for the season.

After growing up in Ellicott City, I was shocked at how many March snowstorms hit NYC. Last year was particularly crazy, with big snows going into April. I've learned never to say die until it's really over.

Ha, yeah who knew the problem was going to be a dryslot and not temps aloft. Seems like we underperformed in the qpf department. Kinda disappointing finish, but it was really fun for a couple of hours this morning. Best two hours of winter I've had this year.

That march 2017 storm was something else. The world around me was like a glacier.

 

Hardest snow I've ever shoveled, all 3" of it.

I'm happy the snow performed here but I'm kinda sad the sleet didn't 

I actually agree with you. I was looking forward to a 3 or 4 hour sleet bomb. I dry slotted shortly after the sleet started. I cant complain I got almost 7 inches of snow out of this. Really fun storm to track and watch fall.

Hrrr has rounds of freezing rain returning later . 28 currently.  Very few pingers here before the dryyyy slotttt .  

Got 4.8" total between 8:30 - 12:20. Great rates once it started. Missed lasts hours measurement but I'll go with the 4.8. Fun storm and it's far from over here with hours of ice coming .

 

28/26 with a se wind 

Season total-- 32.1"

is that it?

Not if my latitude has any bearing on you all up north.  Heavy sleet and snowflakes mixing in now after a lull of freezing mist rain.  Translation:  I think you will get periods of heavy sleet and snow still.

I'm pretty sure my result (2 miles west of DCA) was about 2.5 inches before the s**** and f***** **** knocked down the totals on the hedges.
