Yea, it really lite up the Mason Dixon with an extremely heavy line of sleet.  LSV never goes above freezing. Sleet map from MA:

That’s fine by me.

Geesh.. the most distinct line is running the east slope of the Allegheny front, which I'm within that zone. It's probably not exaggerating too much on the excessive sleet totals if the NAM is in fact correct with the heavy sleet scenario it has been putting out. Lot of the LSV in the 0.5-1" range. Even that much sleet on a couple inches of snow does wonders with anchoring the snowpack lol.

And I did not mean to not mention the deep colors out your way.  I do have an LSV slant to my posts sometimes.

Oh nah your fine, was just pointing out the terrain under where it is putting out those high totals.

It is a a peculiar hole.  Shows on nam and gfs.  Almost like an eye of calm around qpf and encircling it.

Best forcing S and SW of them

That forcing looks good for the LSV. Hopefully it will help to sustain good precip rates to fight off the mixing as long as possible tomorrow.

We will also need to keep our eye on the critical thickness levels as well.

Last 24 hours. I posted some links to some great literature with great onfo on remanent magnetization and electromagnetic pulses last year among other things that could help us I take it no one read it.

Gut says 6zs will paint the picture As CAD almost becomes nowcasting as even Messi struggle to pick up duration.

Specifically that yellow thickness line that corresponds to the 850mb-700mb thickness in this situation. That's more specifically where we will see the column potentially go above freezing during the main precip portion from the WAA. Because of the warming in the mid levels 700-500mb, this is a situation that will snow above the traditional 5400 thickness number.

Euro has Rt 22 as perhaps the line where sleet really cuts down totals-UNV 5.0" this run (NW PA up to 8"), AOO about 3", JST a little over 1". Tomorrow should be fun for you guys, hopefully the mid levels aren't cooked too early but I remember all the bad reminders I lived through in State College where the sleet line stopped for nothing. If it comes in heavy hopefully it gets held off. South of the Turnpike looks mostly like an ice (sleet) event of some type regardless.

Have the give the NAM credit for its finger of snow depiction.  Looking at live radar the NAM was probably the best 2-3 days ago showing the separation between the warm front and the main area of precip to arrive later.

Headed out to drive wife to BWI.  6Z GFS is a Horst PLUS ONE special.  Little snow and drives temps way up this afternoon.  Basically ignores CAD after early afternoon.  Still has the @Wmsptwx snow hole.  Mostly sleet and plain rain for LSV.

more bad news looks that the back side of the slot is not most robust at the moment . A little mixing in Morgantown according to returns. Initial band is starting to break down quit a bit :( coold air is holding some ground at the moment ZR PL is progressing though. slot no longer filling in on northern edege.
