The flip wasn’t so bad.  It flipped to sleet and then drizzle.  At least it didn’t flip to pouring rain and wash everything away.  My yard is still covered.  

Yeah I mean this is probably the best we could've gotten out of this event (aside from the dryslot hours, lol). Will still have snowcover to enjoy for another, er...24-48 hours? Lol

Down to about 2.5 now but trees still really nice. I got the bonanza of 11.5” from the long duration event. So many got so much less; however it’s been a good snowfall winter right here.

Latest Gfs says not getting out of the upper 30s here tomorrow . I wouldn't mind keeping my snowpack for a few days. 

Currently 30 with some moderate zrain that just went through

Still 33 in UHI hell. I’m pretty sure models had me warmer at this point. CAD is super legit. We’ve seen much more entrenched but this episode is legit.

Then you must be young or new to the area. We got 4 inches of sleet on top of 13 inches of snow during PD II. Woodbridge does sleet very well. 

Roger that! That was Feb 12-14 2003. I was in Harrisonburg with my ski friends for that one. Talk about whiteout on I 81!

Also, Feb 9 1994, storm started out as freezing rain at 19 degrees. Then it changed to HEAVY SLEET and it POURED heavy pingers for hours. We wound up with 3-4 inches of sleet otg which glaciated overnight. Then it was FUN FUN FUN to jebwalk on! I saw ppl with digging bars trying to remove the stuff. It would warm to 48 degrees, little pools of water formed on top of the glacier then it just froze again at night lol.

Good Times.

That Feb '94 storm was one of the legends. I was in Arlington where it was also 19 degrees and absolutely pouring rain. Standing there looking out the door saying "What the...?" A lot of people don't believe it when I cite it, and I was almost beginning to doubt my own memory. Thanks for confirming!

Temp stayed below freezing overnight. It always does in these situations. Looks very wintry this morning... not too different from last week's event.

My guess is 41 mby..final call ...lol

How much do you have on the ground?  North of I-70 I'd agree with you that you peak in the low to maybe mid 40s.  DCA might somehow magically torch..lol.

Depth is probably 4.5" or so

Picked up 0.5 of sleet  yesterday before the flip to freezing rain then rain. Rain was heavy for a couple hours. So that is 4.6 total snow/sleet for the storm and 1.79 liquid. Wet, wet, wet. Still have right at 3" of VERY sloppy snow/sleet/glop on the ground.

still 32-33 degrees at almost 11. 51 is the forecast high out here...maybe

So many temp forecasts are going to bust.  Yesterday NBC4 and News Channel 8 were giddy about spiking into the low 50s today. For that to verify we're going to have to get to full sun soon.

Still find it amazing that with an h5 map like this there was a forum wide warning snow event.  I understand why....but still impressive.

and... since us who believe we would be in the 50s today are fools, what do you classify mets like yourself that make such a completely wrong claim like you did here?  Not being in 50s today?  what do you call them
