Yes. I think this is my biggest. In Laurel then 62 to 32 in 3 hours. Lead in to epic 1996 

I remember thunder with the rain in 95' before the snow but I might be remembering a different 90s strong CF .

I need to start making a journal of memorable weather events.  I’m always amazed at the ability by people here to remember random azz events.  I’m happy if I can remember where I put my iPhone down

I remember events from when I was a kid, but nothing now.

I can still remember getting in trouble for throwing snowballs at passing cars on our street growing up after the Jan 96 storm in NJ. And then I’d shovel snow back into the street after a plow came through so school would keep getting cancelled (as if that had any impact ha). 
 

anyways back on topic, HRDRPS has that same snow band south of DC but it’s more localized over the eastern shore. Models seem to like that area for some reason for some surprise Christmas snow.

I did from 1965-2011. We had it on display at one of the conferences.

        Definitely thunder.     We had a severe thunderstorm watch that afternoon.

Fully expected it to be raining already did this slow down? Midnight high tomorrow could be ugly....still hopefully to see some snow TV on Christmas day

Based on the lines at the stores yesterday I think the rain is still trying to do self checkout.  They have an ID required item and the light is blinking

11/11/95 event - remember it well!

Warnings up, red screen banner on TWC.  I remember seeing flashes to the west and at the same time faint white bands on the TV.  Wasn't sure if it was lightning or power line flashes.
 

It came like a derecho.  Bright green flashes overhead.  I was in Towson and it reminded me of that CNN video with Bernard Shaw reporting from Baghdad when the first operatives of Desert Storm initiated!  (due to the phosphor green night vision lens)

Our power went out big time and we had a few 70mph gusts.  It was like a severe thunderstorm in the summer but the temps dropped from near 70 through the 40s.  Then the sleet started, changing to snow.  Could not believe the roads caved so fast.

My wife and I remember this well, she does because I left the toilet seat up and she used the bathroom and fell in the bowl!  Of course she would remember that! :P

 

EDIT:

If that wind model verifies (they rarely do) and we have 60+ gust or two between 2200 and 0000 here and my front door weatherstripping howls (sounds like a cow playing a kazoo!) I'll upload security cam footage to my youtube channel! :D

And those snow rollers, TBH I would have thought those were bales of hay that were shellacked with snow!  That's really cooi! :)

I’ve pretty much punted on accumulations at this point after 2 inches of rain, but some snow falling tomorrow morning would be nice. GFS still shows it ending as snow around 7AM. 

Yeah, no one east of the Alleghany front should get expecting accums from this. Rain, wind, and a cool down.

Up to 40 at deep creek with mod/heavy rain on radar. 
 

I’m under a high wind warning at my parents place in ocean county, NJ for 60 mph wind gusts. Wild. 

Wow you've got it covered -- parents place for coastal/beach blizzards, home for DC specials and Deep Creek!

Lt rain and 43 here.

It’s raining much earlier than I had expected based on what I read yesterday. I can only imagine that doesn’t bode well to get a changeover to snow.  I guess the best we can hope for is snow showers on Friday.  

I doubt the start time of rain will have much impact on the change to snow. We want the low to develop further east on the  front or luck out from the upper level energy tomorrow.

HRRR shows a better quick flip to snow in the NW zones but really shows to potential and convective nature of the late afternoon snow showers just south of DC and east.

ETA:  Long range HRRR so .....

That would be more than DC got in the storm last week :)
