It’s 33, and we’ve got about 2 inches of snow so far in Newtown. It’s like Narnia here:) I’d like a foot or more, but I am happy to have any snow:)

Yeah that's true. I'm glad we're staying all snow for this storm.

Never understood why 4-7 was spouted for here lol. Going to nail it with my 1-3 call

 

I'm gonna say it was for a just-in-case deal.  Probably didn't want to say 2 and end up with 7.

Are you in the Valley? I’m north of 30, out of the valley. Just the slight increase in elevation helps out in certain events. 

Kinda sorta. I'm on a ridge in the valley at ~400' ASL.

2.8” here in wrightstown and ripping.  Drive back from Bear creek was bad.  Rt 663 was closed due to bad accident.  Then had to drive around multiple stuck vehicles on hills on 313 just south of Doylestown.  Certainly not a bust here.

current temp 32.5

Everyone keeps talking about bad GFS thermals, but it has been right. It does look like I will do fine with this storm, but not on the high end of predictions.

Here it's alternating between rain/sleet and snow/sleet which is a bit of a surprise. Not expecting much more in the way of accumulation so I'm gonna get some zzzz's. Good luck everyone, it's been a fun and entertaining evening, including the snow!

Cleared snow board after 6 hours with 3.7" just as the skeet started.  It may have compacted a bit before I measured it, but it was only sleeting for a few mins beforehand.  

I'm getting fat flakes, small flakes, and sleet.

Cheers man, the snow was fun while it lasted. Sleet mixing now here as well.

Sleet does count in the totals as frozen precip with the snow though.  I'm going to call mine as 1.5" because it has been mostly rain since the snow measurement with brief periods of a mix with some snow and more recently some sleet or graupel.  Am back to mostly to rain now.

Heavy bands seem to be taking a hard right turn before they get to the Lehigh Valley. Oh well, can't complain...we'll likely stay all snow for this. The question is, how long will it last? Unless we see backbuilding, the moderate/heavy stuff might end by midnight.

I'm thinking them yellow bands have sleet in them, they can stay south ;)
