I think we could absolutely push 6 inches. The radar is looking really good right now.

A solid 3 inches here and radar looks good. This morning I was thinking we were going to maybe underperform but now it looks like the opposite. Just to the northwest a nice swath or snow or some kind or deformation zone setting up and drifting south.

I've been watching that area on radar, it's been just to the NW of mby now for awhile, hopefully it can push SE just a bit more as there are some steady 20-25 dbz returns showing up.

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
Snow will generally continue overnight as moisture wraps around an
upper low tracking into southeastern Canada. An embedded shortwave
will give one last southward push of snow this evening, potentially
aiding in heavy snow band development along the I-80 corridor.
During this last push, strong upper jet dynamics, steepening low
level lapse rates and enough dendritic growth will promote an
additional 1-2" of snow across eastern OH and southwestern PA while
northwestern PA and the eastern ridge tops could see another 3-6" of
snow. Thus, the Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories
will continue.

I think if the above comes to fruition definitely not out of the question some areas in SWPA push 6 especially areas already closing in on 4in.

I measured a little over 3" a couple hours ago.  The snow was extremely fine down here most of the day,  but this last push may get us upwards of 5" or so.  No complaints about this event on December 1st.  Let's hope it is a sign of things to come the rest of the winter and not the exception.

Heck, if we were to hit 5" officially, this storm alone would be more snow than we've gotten in 4 of the last 6 Decembers.

I have friends in Mercer county that got well over a foot (perhaps upwards of 16-18").  That's crazy.

Goes without saying but in areas with lake effect enhancement and/or elevation, this event pushed towards overperformance.

Yea my sister lives in hermitage and she had 11.5 at 5pm....I had her beat this morning but she well surpassed our area due to the lake effect machine
