Just under 4" here. No mixing to speak of. Moderate-Heavy snow attm. 1/4 mile visibility at best.

Yeah here it was literally a few ice pellets mixed in for about 5-10 mins. Now just ripping snow again.  Looking like we stay snow.

Very disorganized weak coastal looks nothing like the strong wound up systems we have been use to seeing recent winters, exactly why it's not wrapping up pulling the cold south.

Haven’t had any snow whatsoever since 7pm. Stayed mix/rain after an initial thump of 1 or 2 inches. Very dissapointed. Massive bust. Epic fail. I’m off to bed.

Ji got 0.0 - that's a severe bust anybody who follows the models closely knows that area was near 100% for 4-6"

7" on the dot here. I need some sleep though. I'll measure the final in the morning, which will probably be compacted by then, but oh well. I'm going to end up between 7 and 8", perfectly predicted by most models.

Going to bed. Sick for 4th time this year. Just want winter over already. Told everyone the 4-7" was fake news just like last time and low and behold it is. Models consistently were fringe with temps for Philly S&E and my mine is boggled where these weird predictions came from. Any event that is of fringe temps this year doesn't go out way. 7". Just lol no model ever showed 7 inches IMBY. Even the weather channel jumped on this weird train.

I have to believe my area will be the Bucks county jackpot.  You gotta smell the rain to get the best rates.  No doubt.  Insane snowfall rates right now

Crazy that you had so little mixing. I'm not 5 miles away and had a solid 90 minutes of sleet.

At least 4" here. Hope can approach 5" before it ends. I had some precip wasted as rain and sleet this afternoon. I think many of these school delays will become closings out here due to the cold day tomorrow.

Huge bust in Bordentown, NJ. Flipped to sleet hours ago and never went back. Haven’t measured but looks like less than 3” here. Congrats to the NW crew that cashed in, happy for you guys!

Congrats to everyone that did well.  I'm not sure I would even consider what happened south and east of 95 as a bust.  I think everyone pretty much knew that there was a good chance that not much was going to happen.  I don't pay attention to any weather outlets other than the NWS, but as for them, I assume they went high because it's better than going low.  

 

Ended up with 0.5" of snow and somewhere around 0.8" of rain.  Puts the seasonal snowfall total here at 19.5" for 9 events.  A bunch of dink and dunk events, but an above average season nonetheless.

For ABE:

The Thursday night/Friday morning storm snowfall total was 0.8”

The Friday night/Saturday storm snowfall total was 4.1”

The Sunday night/Monday morning storm snowfall total (as of 1am Monday morning) was 6.6”.

So, the snowfall total for March so far (as of March 4th at 1am) is 11.5”.  So March by far has been our snowiest month of the winter and it bring our total winter snowfall very close to average, believe it or not.

From the looks of the radar this should be ending over NJ in the next hour or two unless there is some additional precipitation development.
