Jan 31st - 33rd Storm Obs and Disco like it's 1979

I’m just sitting here in complete awe that flakes are still falling from this storm.  Same band of light snow with occasional bursts remains overhead. Great way to end the night and storm. Can confidently say we ended with over 11” here. Goodnight all.

Damn.. some places in new Jersey got three feet.  Thats two all time Records this year up north.  Binghamton was the previous one back on December.  

I think we are next... 

You are next for record snows, but most of the Mid Atlantic is definitely next for record snows, THIS winter. A highly anomalous storm will slowly move over the Washington Metropolitan Region this month and dump ridiculously heavy amounts of snow that will make the Great Blizzard of 2016 look like a spring day in Central Park.

You are all gonna need a MUCH bigger shovel.

I agree.. shits going down.. LR is showing several east-west impulses and very cold air.

Well i thought it was over yesterday.

Woke up for work and outside everything is covered once again.. very light snow falling. Radar has a band that goes from a few hundred miles into Canada all the way down to almost Richmond.  Really pretty amazing 4 straight days of snow falling here.  Can't remember a time I can say that.

Sounds like Salisbury is cashing in again, over 2" already from the current snow band... That would put them at 7 or 8" storm total

More like 5" in Salisbury since Sunday

Picked up .50" overnight. 

Storm total of 16.0"

That’s impressive.  Even though the vast majority of the forum didn’t see totals like that, I still think this was a cool storm.  And coming into this winter, most were expecting a complete dud (and possible shutout in the cities).  And more active tracking on the way.

Definitely an anomaly compared to most of the subforum. We got into that extremely heavy band that sat over 81 for several hours Monday afternoon. Picked up about 7" in 5 hours. 

I'm in the darkest Orange shading in that NWS  map that's been posted a few times in this thread.

I'm about 5 miles from that red dot that picked up over 20" in the blue ridge summit/ Sabilisville area. But that area has several hundred feet in elevation over me. I'm like 750. Those areas are 1100 ft +.

Another 4" overnight in Snowshoe.   Probably 12-14" total since Sunday.  Snowpack is amazing.  January 16 and now.

Just a great winter in the mountains.  Last night’s snow put Wisp over 80” on the season...well on the way to beating average which is ~110”.  It’s great news for Wisp, Snowshoe, and Canaan considering the extra costs of running during COVID and the awful winter last year (relatively speaking).

Can’t wait to get back there in another week.

Agreed!  And with the cold coming, should keep them open through March, with more trails open entire time.
