Just read the WWA for out here.

Going on record that I don’t think there’s any way anywhere here gets 3-4”

I am just hoping to see some splatty wet flakes on the windshield driving to work tomorrow morning.

Snowed two inches on May 13th when I used to live in snowshoe. Another two inches September 30th of the following year.

I'm gonna pull the good ol' weenie excuse of saying that both the 12k and 3k initiated really poorly with respect to how much precip is on the actual radar. Completely missed everything in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Kentucky.

Was gonna say the same thing. If the forecasted radar is that far off how can any stick be placed in anything it shows?

18z GFS has latched on to the dual-banding idea that others had mentioned earlier. Kinda splits D.C. so decent chance this is right.

I like that southern band a lot, hopefully it appears on the radar tonight

^Problem with that southern/eastern 'band' is temps. That map might be close to representative if we weren't talking warm, soggy ground and surface temps in the 34-35 degree range. I would totally take it verbatim if we had cold ground and temps around 30. As it is, anywhere SE of the fall line is looking at a half inch or less with extremely poor accumulating efficiency, unless some intense banding sets up overhead.

Well...a dusting of snow, or a light crust, is really all I expect where I'm at.  But cannot say I'm disappointed in any way.  Will at least get on the board somewhat, unlike last December.  It will still be an impressive temperature drop and tomorrow will be a rude awakening after 50s today.  Heh...maybe it will give me a chance to dust off the brush/scraper for the car tomorrow morning (if I can find it and dig the darned thing out)!!

I think I heard (jokingly, I'm sure :lol:) that HDRPS maps are banned. 18z HDRPS is gonna be the best run of the 18z suite, bands DC-Balt pretty hard. 2-4" type run for areas that get hit, temps cooperate because of the banding.

Not so tasty down in Richmond...

Does 936-1212 still work?

Can remember or at least I think I remember hearing the emphasis on the end of his name Meteorologist Mark Swayne.
