Weekend Triple Header Snow Extravaganza Obs 3/1 - 3/4

Recommended Posts

3.3" in phoenixville still light to moderate snow hanging on.

 

Edit: 20 mins later and its absolute pixie dust.  Calling it at 3.3"  Also I finally took the time to update my icon and large profile picture.  

 

Edit 2: actually been snowing lightly for another hour.  Flake size increased so it may amount to something.

Welcome March, the new January.  Nothing official, but Avondale seems to have topped the 3" mark all snow from this event.  Nice out.

Saw an accident about 2 mins from my house. Decided to take 29, which is flat, and not risk climbing the hill. I'm sure there were a few more if I kept going that way.  Backroads are bad, main roads are ok but still some sketchy spots.  May have to tow a 3 ton generator to philly with an old crew cab.. thatd be interesting. 

 

Still snowing moderately with good flake size.

I've learned over the years to find the model with the least amount of snow and use that as your expectation. It's a hard thing to do when stuff like the FV3 snowmap is saying "come towards the light" but believe me if you follow this advice you will almost NEVER be disappointed and more times than not the lower totals end up verifying anyway.

I  noticed that it moved the R/S line SE a bit which is encouraging (for now).

New thread for tonight's event to try and alleviate some of the confusion where to post. Probably just made it more confusing:

I was envisioning him on the beach under the umbrella complaining about how it's almost spring and this is ruining his beach day ;)

The movement of this has been interesting to say the least.  It started out with a general W --> E motion then shifted to a SW --> NE movement and has now started a NW --> SE movement. So with that, the "back edge" keeps basically staying stationary near me and I still have light snow. It was to the point where places in the city south of me had nothing and now it has filled back in over the city proper. Temp is still creeping up ever so slowly (although still 28 - technically 28.2).
