2/19-20 Winter Storm Observations

Yea it was a 2 or 3 hour bang then a lotta nothing.  2nd half really underwhelming.

Maybe you crushed it with the January storm, but it hasn't exactly been a winter filled with great events. Getting crushed with snow for a couple hours certainly should rate highly in this crappy winter.

Ahhh, well all the more reason to rate this one highly! It should have been your best event of the winter then!

That's still more than anything I've seen all season.

I had a personal forecast of 2-4 inches for Balt. City....and sure enough we got exactly 4"! Lol Of course there's a good dose of "what could have been"-itis here...but still not a bad event!

we all want another 96/16, but these types of storms are the reality.  what's nice is that the concern of a gully washer rain has held off for now, so the first part of this was a legit snowstorm.  those other great storms generally had a nice h5 pass.  this was essentially an overrunning event due to a screaming jet and near perfectly timed cold high to the north.

The thunder snow this morning ranks this one up there with the best < 6" events I have experienced.  It wasn't the muffled thunder you sometimes get in winter.  It was legit.

Huh, some flakes mixing in back in CHO.

Mixed sleet/snow, additional .25” of sleet makes my total 3.35”

Congrats.  Sorry the ZR didn’t work out.  Actually was looking forward to that.

(Suprised ya didn't mention 2009/10, 2003, etc, haha) Wouldn't say storms like this one are THE reality, but rather what's more common. A big storm can become the reality anytime of year...but the likelihood? Very inconsistent, lol

Yeah, this is the last time I believe in ZR down here. Busted on that front more than a few times this year.

It can happen, today wasn't really a great setup though for it IMO.  Temps in the mid 20's or lower, light precip, and low sun angle is the winning recipe.

I looked at my trees and they have icicles.  Interesting.  Let’s face it most of our events are mixed bag mess.  I just want one more to hunt track and kill before I spread mulch.

When you consider we didn't even get the main storm but rather the WAA out ahead of it, I can't complain about approx 5" while the main storm went to the Lakes.  We can thank the strong HP (strategically positioned) to the north for that.  This was an energetic, spring-like system, with plenty of GulfMex juice.

While I noticed temps rose toward the end of the snow, the temp has remained quite steady around 30.6 for the past few hours.  Just a bit of sleet IMBY as the snow slowly fizzled.

Nice event.  Not memorable, but nice.


Probably the only 570dm snowstorm you'll ever see.

Cool event, best rates of the season.

Too bad it'll be like 60 tomorrow.

More like 50, but most of it will still be gone.

The high is shoving things due east to ese. Lower pressure isobars are stacked along the mountains but not making much progress and until and unless that high eases to about 30.10 then we won’t see anything other than very light.

If you told me yesterday I wouldn’t see a single pinger all day I would have said you’re crazy.

Looking at the radar, I would think in 2-3hr central MD will be greeting either rain or freezing rain. Currently very light zr
