I do feel a March snowstorm is coming for most here 

If we do get the unusual measurable snowfall in March, like you I believe this would be the type of year (winter) for it.

Any other models showing this storm?  I didn't purchase the model suite this year and have to admit, it feels good asking that question.  It's probably been since 2005 since I've asked that...:D

We do have weekend rule on our side. :D:arrowhead:

The most snow I've ever seen is Jan 2011 in Athens, GA. 8.8 inches. I'm in Norfolk, VA now. That would be INSANE haha

Should we from now on instead of cutting totals in half cut them down to 15% of what’s shown? Just to save ourselves the heartbreak :lol:

0.  34 degree rain :)

DC will get 5 inches and then sleet and they'll all whine.

I will check back in on Wed. and see how this is working out.

I'll check back on Feb 26th after the late night model runs, cut whatever the clown maps show by 2/3rds, increase the the temps to 32.5° and divide all of that by zero.  That is precisely what I will get.

That should put me firmly above 75” of digital snow from the GFS this season. Solid win for sure

Someone on the MA board said it perfectly: it only snows when it’s above freezing now

Feb. 27 eh.  Interesting. It can happen.  This was my backyard on Feb 27, 2004.  I had accumulated around four inches during the day but this is the 20” I ended up with after more than three hours of unbelievably heavy thunder snow. It wasn’t just rumbling thunder in the distance. Some of the flashes lit the yard like daylight.

I could stand a repeat.

If I remember correctly, that was an upper level low where the deformation band set up over you for hours.

Yep. Less than 15 miles to the north the airport got a total of 6”. EDIT: As I remember it. Could be an inch or two either way.

It was quite the storm. One of the biggest snows I’ve been in as an adult. I didn’t rub it in though. Much. :)

That picture doesn’t even look like it belongs on this board... I’m used to measuring sticks stuck on car hoods claiming over an inch and pics of yards with grass popping out and decks where you can see wood through the snow and people declaring it’s “puking” or “pouring snow”

Lol.  I agree. Since we seem to be in a lull right now I can add a few more details that will clearly show the rate of snowfall.  The photos I took all have a time stamp in the EXIF of the original. So here are three shots that I took during the fun part of the storm with the time taken. Basically they are 2 hours apart.
