Pittsburgh PA Area Rest of fall and Winter 2019-2020 thread

That Thursday morning thing is close enough to keep an eye on, but right now GFS is really the only thing giving us mainly snow. 

Unfortunately, the Euro and everyone else have been north from the start. 

I expect the GFS to cave soon. 

Everytime we actually need the NS to  suppress a bit, it tends to fail us.

Yeah in this case I dont see any way this isn't further NW. Most ensemble members have AGH county as being the cutoff. That wouldnt surprise me.

Maybe a light front end thump Wednesday into Thursday, better odds North and West. It would be nothing more than stats padding though as another inch or so of rainfall is coming in afterwards. Maybe some landslide watches go up? lol

After that Thursday night might be favorable for some decent snow showers. It's going to be cold Friday so it would be nice to have at least an inch or so of snow on the ground.

Off Topic, but if your bored go check out the NE thread... talk about a massive meltdown of embarrassing proportions!

Oh please...they have had such a great run of huge storms. All those east coast subs suck. If they don’t get a 20 inch storm they melt.

I will say this, I prefer this winter to the 30 one inch dusting we usually get that are just annoying. If we can’t get decent storms, just don’t snow. Also, this has been much better than the usual slop storm where we get killed by WAA GM then a week of temperatures hovering in the teens or less and it is dry only to repeat with the warm tongue.

I’m getting a nice surprise coating this morning. :snowwindow:

 

Yeah I wasn't expecting to see this. NWS addresses in the discussion:

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
1130am update...increased PoP to track a narrow band of precipitation
moving east through the region, evidenced by current radar imagery.
Wet bulbing plus near sfc CAA has led to most of this precip to fall
as snow, with a rain/snow mix more likely in northern WV. Warm
grounds and short duration will limit accumulation to a trace on
grassy surfaces only. This wave will exit this afternoon, and signal
the beginning of the dry period.

Gfs is right where we want it 10 days out a hit down in Virginia beach. Although I bet it gets suppressed instead.

One, there should have been a special weather statement. Roads in the north hills were a mess. 
 

two, these are awful events, and of course I had plans. The conditions getting to McKnight were pretty scary. Bring on spring...this is the Pitts

So...no snow, cool.

It’s coming, let’s see if that line can hold together, if it does it will be brief but intense. Saw a post on Facebook about thunder but not sure how reliable the person is.

Lightning showed up on RadarScope. Also, my uncle lives in Hubbard, OH. He texted me and told me he heard a rumble

Sure was fun. Got a quick coating out of it

Yeah that was cool, didn’t observe any lightening but it only took about 45 seconds for roads and everything to go white.

Looks like some light snow building in behind the front now. Maybe we can eek out an inch overnight.

We are now at 19.1 inches for the season. What would the over under of 25 inches for the season be? 

Just about any other year on Feb 14th you'd take the over but not this year. 

Cause most years we'd already be over 25" on February 14th, lol.  I'd stay under though this year, and if we make it over, I'd say we stop at 26" or 27".
