+SN continues in Westminster at 27 degrees. Up to around 6” so far. Thinking if we can hold off the sleet for another 2 hours we’ll crack 10 for the storm, especially if we tack on any extra tonight.

Nice move out of dundalk lol....Not even an inch here..Sleet/rain mix now, more rain than sleet

we are at 27 in Leesburg, we are not going above freezing are we?

I don't think so.. that mix back to snow was brief! East of Leesburg looks close to seeing some freezing rain. Stupid warm nose, poor track, climate.. etc! But this was fun! That heavy band was sweet! Maybe some snow can top off the crust we are getting now.

Hey, we had our fun in 09-10. Beat my friends to the NW cracking 20” in all 3 monsters and 30” in the Feb 5/6 storm. About a 90” winter that year.

It looks nice while it lasted. Just a cold rain here now, not even pingers. Sucks because a shift 15 miles or so south and we could have joined in on the fun.

Pouring snow here...not the huge sized flakes but a good medium sized (aka the Goldilocks kind i guess..not too big, not too small, just right?).  20/19 with winds out of the east.  

Guy just came to plow our hill and driveway...immediately covered again.

ETA:  Pouring has stopped but still coming down.

Still 30 degrees in Germantown. We have a steady rain and everything is turning to ice. The roads will be ice rinks soon. The snow feels like shoveling wet sand.

Looking at Google maps for 270, it looks like it has already started. Yikes.

Pixie Dust Here. Looks like all the heavy returns are staying to our west all day. We need some bands to move through quickly here

Heaviest snow of they day I think.

Yeah right now it’s the heaviest and flake size is huge. Has to be over 2”/hr, watching it stack as I shovel.

Sun just popped out here and snow stopped. I’m about 20 miles west southwest of Winchester, and directly west of Woodstock, VA by 15 miles. We have 9” now it’s been roughly 23 degrees since 11am. 2200’ elevation

Sweet, hope it goes all night. Looks like a bunch of people having fun over at Wisp too!

We’ll be back here between Christmas & New Years — pattern is looking drool worthy then.
