This thing is hauling according to radar. We will be done by 1. Plus NWS put this out below us:

If you believe there is a second part to this storm than it won't be over even if there is a lull. It just depends on the many coastals that are coming up from the south.

Enjoying solid moderate to almost heavy with larger flakes at the moment.  But if you believe the radar, at least for now it could be the last hoorah for me.  Nothing on radar to my southwest with the back edge less than 20 miles to my west.  Temp down to 23.9 with heavier rate drawing down colder air.

Looks like it has changed over outside.  

I have the big random flakes that you described earlier, and are often the indicator that the pingers are about to recommence here. We'll see - just about 4" here now. 

Again - I'm really glad that you joined our thread. Good to have eastern Lanco well represented!

Dumb question but is this thing pretty much over? Don’t see where other precip would be coming from.

Dumb comment, but most radars are capable of zooming out past PA borders.

Predominantly sleet mixture here at the moment with flakes still mixing in, visibility way up.  1.2" since my last report at 9am, 3.2" total.  Heading up towards the Poconos this afternoon, will try and chime in from the road (don't worry, I'm not driving ha).  Good luck to all.

That is so interesting 20 mins from you and I am still mod snow not huge flakes at all as of yet. 

It is POURING sleet. If "heavy sleet" is a thing, this is it.

Here in Carlisle at 11:00am the snow has ended.  Looks like there's going to be a LONG lull.  2.1" storm total.  Temp back up to 24.4 degrees.  I had the heaviest rates of the storm about 20 minutes ago right before some sleet began to mix in.  I'm not giving up totally but I think the HRRR is going to be right.  (Sorry for sounding so down!  Not usually like this but all 3 big storms this winter I underperformed by a good margin.)  I know it will snow again, maybe this Monday?

So dang interesting so close to you and it is pouring SN+ here. 

Now back to all snow it seems. We're in no way reaching WSW criteria if this keeps up.

All sleet here now and the storm is about over. Wow I'm sorry, but what a disappointment...literally only 2 days ago, models were at least 6 inches of snow through a good chunk of southern PA. I barely made it to 4 inches. The way models this year dry up right before these storms is laughable.

GFS wants to rain on the Monday parade as of now. Hang in there and hope you can get a 2nd slug of moisture coming in.

Depends what model you go with, but if hrrr is right, this thing is mostly over.

100% sleet here - total snow/sleet is 4.3". We'll see what we add from here out, but totally satisfied. Right in the middle of my 3-6" range.  

Same here. I just want to get to 5” to meet WSW.

Hrr goes to 18hrs, and many models have light snow well into tomorrow morning.  While best accums may be over for some, there is more snow to come.  Consider it mood flakes.  

BTW, your concern was my concern from days ago when N and W were showing big totals, greater than the LSV.  This storm has a progressive look to it (thinking trough axis)t, and not a diggy one (that is what you needed for the coastal numbers to verify.  Its more of a wave to weak coastal (and that's not bad at all)....but is just not good for everyone.  I think conshohocken folks approve of this event by a 14" margin.  

It seems like a general 4-8 is reasonable (NW to SE gradient), so I'm not complaining a bit...even as i hear pingers mixing in w/ my 4".  If I can eek 2 more inches out through tomorrow morning....thats fantastic.

That would be nice - my 2 personal objectives were to reach my range, which I set to exceed my seasonal average, which I did. Right now I'm at 31.5" for the season, which is a HUGE win during a Nina. I went into the winter, and I shared this with Daxx, expecting 15-20" for the season. (he was more bullish than I was) So, anything from here on out is gravy.

Well folks - going by these 2 posts, it's pretty clear who posts positively and who posts negatively. :)

Horst (2 minutes ago) on more snow prospects:

The back edge is coming fast! A classic warm advection event that plays out in ~6 hours...and so the worst will soon be behind us. As mentioned earlier, a trailing upper-level system may yield a bit of "bonus" light snow tonight into Friday AM. But we'll see about that...

So that's it? Biggest bust in a few years here. 

Hence why I said today was this year's annual "Weatherman Takes One On The Chin" Day. Gonna be a few "We blew it." Segments on TV and social media.
