This is the fun part right?

 

What comes next?

 

High accumulating sleet? A back end punch of snow? Rain that freezes because our temps never get above 32 here? Or is this it? hmmmm

Hoping to avoid rain, but not sure.  3" is definitely solid compared to what I feared at times the last day or two.

For reference, the average December monthly snow for IAD, BWI, DCA is 3.5, 3.0, and 2.3. Not the kind of storm we originally hoped for, but a 12”+ event is not all that common for this time of the year in the MA. We are starting the year off pretty good.

Sitting at king st oyster. Was super heaving 10 mins ago. Hiked up raven rock trail an hour ago, and it was pouring snow up there. Almost 4” on the ground at 1000”

Fellow spotters, remind me of the rules...

I've measured each hour and won't wipe the board until 6pm.  But can I report these intermediate values?  I think yes, right?

DCA only got a trace unfortunately.

I'm never inside any of these cute bubbles

Thats because the orange arrow is warm air.  When they draw it going over us its too far.  We need that arrow to stop near VA Beach for us to get the cute puffy cloud

We live between the two. We knew Falling Branch closed so came here instead.

You would have loved this if you were home. The rates are absolutely insane. We are approaching 3" easily.

LOL

The surrounding areas need at least 5 inches for DCA to get more than a trace.

Not necessarily...don't forget about January 2019--they jackpoted with a foot while further north got a bit fringed, lol
