We've gone over to graupel here in Trenton. Poor snow growth at the moment but still coming down at a decent rate.

Didn’t make it to Lower Bucks?

Great to see so many enjoying this storm! The Poconos are riding the edge, 1/2 inch thus far. Rates fluctuate but I do not see much potential for here. Likely 1-3

Enjoy LV to the Jersey shore

Hi all, been lurking for a while now but thought Id join to chime in with snow reports from South Philly - since most of what we seem to get here is stellar reports from the NW burbs while South Philly fights the sleet/snow line. Though it looks like that line is pushing south at the same time some very heavy bands (2"+ rates?) coming from the SW - hoping for good returns soon! 

Welcome!  There are a couple of us city-proper posters here. Seems we have issues beyond the snow/sleet line that have to do with what is going on in the upper atmosphere with warm noses and whatnot!  I think this was pretty much expected - a "front end thump" followed by mixing and then when the coastal takes over, some possible additional, although it remains to be seen if more rain happens with that.  If anything, it is interesting to see where the band of heaviest snow had/had set up and it's a pretty narrow gradient for that at the moment.

We’re in the midst of an over-performer with snow in the 20s, I’m getting distracted too :lol:

Sleet mixed in with snow in Langhorne, Pa

Yeah, still seems to be mostly snow. It’s gone back and forth a few times. All of the heavy stuff has been snow. Hope that continues.

Ha ICON snows to early Saturday. Caving to the CRAS. For those not following, the CRAS was the first to show this as an extended frozen event at range and never once wavered. Looks to score a huge win.

Yeah, definitely a surprise for sure. I missed the onslaught this morning, I was completely taken by surprise on how much accumulated this morning.

Its most certainly sleet, thus the higher returns and the fact CC shows it pretty well.  Remains to be seen where it will shift back to snow.  Thinking just north of city for some time.  The rates shown on radar will drop where it switches to snow.

Same, I was shocked to wake up to nearly 6” at 7:30AM. Must have come in like a wall.

I was never sold on those "dry" model runs. Gulf moisture is involved, enjoy the over performer!

Thanks! Although you seem to be atop Mt Philadelphia or something getting twice the totals I see down here sometimes.:lol:

Aforementioned heavy stuff below, although the sleet line has come up a bit with it!

Born and raised in "Mt." Airy and living in Chestnut "Hill".  :lol:   I think the highest elevation up in this area... not too far up the way from me to the west, is about 425 ft elevation.

There are the little Montco towns literally about 4 - 5 miles to my north (and either west or east - Whitemarsh and Glenside) that have been reporting 8", so I am sortof on the southern fringe of the heavier band.
