Central PA - Jan 31 to Feb 2 Winter Storm

Recommended Posts

Getting back to current weather, Channel 16 said on the 11 o'clock news that we would get 6 more inches here in Williamsport.  That surprised me.  Let's see if we get it.

Here's my midnight recap for the storm in Carlisle.  At midnight it continued to snow very lightly.  During the past 2 hours only 0.1" of additional snow was recorded.  That brought the daily total (for Monday 2/1) to 5.7".  The previous day (1/31) recorded 3.7" of snow.  The 2-day storm total was 9.4".  The liquid equivalent from today's snowfall of 5.7" was 0.70".  This included 0.3" of snow and sleet (0.03") and 0.07" of freezing rain.  I will be back in the morning to finish this report with the SLR's from each day and the 2-day average SLR.  Maybe I'll get one more inch overnight to exceed December's total by 0.1".  My board has been cleared and ready for anything that might fall overnight.  See you all in the morning!

Nah I bought a house a few years ago. I'm in Altoona now by the campus, only about 4 miles down the road.

At least we don't have to chase models anymore now that we have the groundhog forecast coming out.  That was exhausting.

So I measured 21.5" for the storm total here at 6:30am. It appears to be done as nothing but flurries are falling at the moment, and we only got another inch during the overnight hours since my last measurement.

Yeah where is this wind that is forecasted? Dead calm here lol

Wind wasn’t forecasted for here - just saying it’s a waste to have this much drift-able snow without any wind.

But am really surprised you’re not getting wind in York.

Was jealous of the LSV yesterday afternoon when you guys were under those death bands but eventually it set-up over NEPA and crushed from roughly 7:30 to midnight. Under a very heavy band this AM. Most locations are somewhere between 18-24". I am at roughly 20" IMBY.

Harrisburg -MDT- recorded a 2 day storm total of 12.5 inches of snow. 4.6 was recorded on Sunday and 7.9 yesterday as of Midnight.

Maybe we can still add on a little more today?

For as feast or famine as its felt around here in recent years, this is now the 5th double-digit snowfall for MDT in the last 5 years. 

Jan 2016

Mar 2017

Mar 2018

Dec 2020

Not to mention the surprise pre-Thanksgiving storm in 2018 where MDT picked up 9" and we had over 10" here a little further north of Harrisburg prior to sleet onset.   Crazy times.

I'll look later but I believe this was my 15th double digit snowfall since 2000. Not bad for an area that historically averaged about 1 or 2 per every 10 years.
