I didn’t realize that band must have clipped me.   I need to tighten my obs up or NWS might be shutting my site down

I'm having a hard time believing that much snow fell by you.  The temperature barely dropped to freezing overnight.  This is a conspiracy between you and @paweather.

Hehe.   I didn’t even see a flake.   I had both my flood lights on last night and nothing.

Are you sure that picture was from today?

Somehow I am skeptical of that one.

Actually no he mislabeled the photos. He has video of snowflakes and somehow tagged that. I’ll go remove that. 
 

Grrrrr.

I don’t care what crankyweather says, this air mass is anomalously cold.

If this was January we would be challenging all time record lows.

It’s amazing we saw snow last night. Hoping for some instability snow showers this afternoon.

I love weather extremes.

The overcast is nearly total now and getting lower and thicker.  I can still see Blue Mountain from here (about 10 miles north) so I don't think any snow showers are near just yet.  Temp slowly falling again, back at 40 with a stiff NW breeze.  Easily a day we'd see in March.

Just looked outside and see flurries flying by!  Amazing that it's happening precisely on the 43rd anniversary of the last time it did this...May 9th, 1977.  Incredible.  Putting down a trace for the date!!

Looks like some bands of snow showers should be just about at @Blizzard of 93 house any minute...

Happy belated 43rd birthday, then!!!  Skies breaking up here now.  Glad that I at least got to see the flurries for however short the time was.

Third round of flurries/snow showers here. Other than the fact that it's May 9th, they wouldn't be postworthy, but on Mother's Day weekend, they sure are.

Amazing to see a full fledged snow squall briefly whiten the ground at 1 in the afternoon on May 9th.

These heavier squalls moving through the central counties right now are probably going to make it to Harrisburg and deeper into the LSV the next couple hours with the best daytime heating likely maintaining them. Look for them to have grapuel and snow pellets in them as well with the sun heating surface temps into the 40s.

It’s May 9, in case anyone forgot.

Oh boy, I can see the snow squall slowly headed towards me.  Blue mountain totally gone now which means the snow will be more significant.  Radar looks like bullseye hit for me in about 10 minutes.  Will send update.  Temp 41.9.

On and off here as well....every now and then it looks like a real snow for a few moments. 

Picking up again.  One cell after another.    You have one tracking through western Franklin now

Blue Mountain...the downsloping snow eater!!!

While the radar looked great and the clouds off to my northwest looked great, I ended up with a whopping 2 minutes of a moderate snow shower.  No squall!  Nevertheless, snow in the mid afternoon on May 9th as others have already said....unreal.  Still looks like a few more chances coming down from the northwest, so we'll see.  Sun just popping back out as I write this.  Temp dropped to 40.6 with the snow showers.  I think MDT will break it's mini-max temp of 48 by the end of the afternoon, from 1947.  So coldest May 9th in 73 years here today looking probable.
