Possibly because it had started raining there.  Am now getting the rain here and am up to 0.18" with improved visibility but not by much.   Earlier I was almost completely socked in!

You may be correct....I didn't think of that. It's definitely raining at a decent clip.

Pretty sad this obs thread usually consist of rain totals rather than snow this winter.

Well one thing to look out for today are the winds.  With the ground so saturated, I wouldn't be surprised if there were  a lot of trees down.

Going to turn to severe weather soon. I have a gut feeling we miss out on decent March snows this year. Maybe a fluke rogue system but I see nothing that is hinting at a favorable late season pattern after next week tbh. Weeklies hinted at HL blocking but will probably be too little too late. We dont even have the widespread cold bottled in the HL this year, more like some idolized arctic air focused around the PV and that's it. Many unfrozen bodies of water that are usually solid ice, ssts still AN, etc. I say bring on the thunder, striped bass, and Phillies (and hopefully Flyers playoffs)!!

We may be in some severe weather now!  Storm damage from winds down in MD and severe thunderstorm warnings up west of here.

Temp up 5 degrees over last hour now 54.6 - high gust so far 15mph - transition to snow line 100 miles NW of here

You made me look at mine - downsloping in effect and temp has shot up to 55 here but still misty.  Warnings lofted and getting closer to the I-95 corridor.

.9" of rain so far with this event. Pretty far off from the 2-3" totals being printed on the models even 48 hours out from the event.

That got the adrenalin going, lol. Strong winds, branches breaking, even heard a rumble of thunder. No tornado thankfully. We were sitting on the porch and for a moment I thought we should maybe go inside, but it blew through pretty quickly.

My trash cans are still standing. Either the winds weren't that strong or I threw out a lot of $&*# this week.

Got 0.11" out of the quick gust front.  Looks like the strongest winds have been reported in the southern part of the CWA with one 60 mph to the north in Mercer County, NJ.  Cape May Harbor mesonet reported a 73 mph gust.

Temp is down to 51 here now and the winds have picked up.
