February 7th Storm Threat Discussion/Obs

Recommended Posts

Yup.  If I could create a Frankenstorm it would be that type snow and temps about 25.  

I kept my expectations low, and enjoyed the fact it didn't start looking like a threat til later in the week. Just happy to get a few inches with nice rates.

Still snowing decently but not accumulating as its compacting faster. Reached 5 inches then a lull which it compacted to 4.5. After that had some really good rates and measured 5.5. Now it's back to 4.5 -5.0 depending where I measure. I'll go with 5.5 although we probably got over 6. This may have been 7-8 if it was a couple degrees colder or fell mostly at night. 

There was never 1 global that gave my area over .5 QPF. on any run leading up to the event. Nice surprise.

Heavy snow west of Dover with 1-2 inch rates per hour. Approaching 4 inches since change over around 10am! 

Nice!

That band has moved off but still some moderate snow falling. Measured right at 3" about 20 mins ago.

I measured 5.2 on my deck before the lull. Measured another 1.8 after from the second round. But depth never got above 5.8 and now it’s compacted back to like 5 again. So 7 actually fell between the two heavy bands but we never passed 5.8 depth due to compaction during the lull.  Also this is the kind of borderline event where my 300 extra feet might have mattered some. It was 33 during a lot of the storm even up here.

lol crazy. Had rain mixing IMBY. Drove about 3mi away up near Howard High with about 200ft elevation on me and it’s heavy snow and they probably have close to 2” OTG.

My brother said he drove literally 4-5 mins west down 108 away from 29 and saw easily 2”+ more of snow OTG. I believe it. Radar app I use on my iPhone (Hi-Def radar) is pretty damn spot on with P type per people’s reporting here and there have been pockets of rain and mix all over east hoco this AM. Made its way into Germantown too.

 

can really get a sense of everyone’s micro climates per their reports on this one.

Sun will soon be out W to E.

Hoping to keep the light/moderate snow going for a while and then clouds most of the day here. Models have been showing temps maxing out around 36 here before dropping.

Sun is out in Winchester. I hope todays event will help preserve the snowpack that was left from last weeks storm. On to the mid week event. 

Suspect that will be my fate here soon within the hour. Over 6” is a winner in my book. On to the next one!

Another bust here. Nothing but white rain and a coating of slop. On to the next fails. Working on winter #3 without a WSW verifying.

This was the sickest little snow event in a while, probably since March 2018. 3 inches on the ground here. 

Ready for tonight's glacier?

Measured 4" on the patio after compaction. Sun was already out. I'm sure if I was clearing every hour I would have recorded 5" easy. Nice event!

snowboards are cleared at most every 6 hours (no more than 4x/day).

Drive up 108 to where I am for my sons appointment right now. This is basically a long walk from where we live. 
 

Well, to quote Belichek today, “We’re onto (Cincinnati) Thursday”

Up at BC Brewery now in hunt valley. Even up here there’s only about an inch. Maybe 1.5”. At least it’s snowing while having a beer though
