Do we really think “round 2” will happen. I always think about wrap around snow (which I know this isn’t) but that never seems to come to fruition.

Yeah this thing looks like it's moving out. Not bad though, roughly 5" on the driveway. Started to pelt me with sleet and graupel while I was snowblowing but now it's not doing anything. Really pretty out though.

I guess I'm struggling to see how "the coastal" is going to bring much more precipitation to our region. Is the predicted precip tonight going to be from that? To my untrained eye it looks like the center of low pressure will be far offshore by then as opposed to the last storm where it was much deeper and hugged the shore quite a bit longer.

I think tonight will be a nice topper to cover up the sleet layer. I bet most places see at least a coating but it looks to me based on guidance an addition inch or 2 seems likely from PHL north. N and W areas definitely seem favored though for it, we'll see. We are back to light sleet here, and now freezing rain. Glaze on all untreated surfaces, almost wiped out on the area I shoveled. Temp is up to 28F.

For those asking, the batch of precip currently expanding in the Tennessee Valley is our next batch for overnight...at least according to some guidance (matches ICON/RGEM the most). It is a sw embedded in the flow that will ride the boundary and enhance precip from the coastal low sitting off the coast. As other stated, probably enough do drop a c-3". Interestingly the ICON is most aggressive in lingering precip thru the day tomorrow. Maybe we can eek out the higher end of that range.

Tally so far is 8.5" here (7.5" snow, 1" sleet). 26F and freezing drizzle attm

That's usually the good luck charm, Ralph downplays/lowers expectations right before the start and then gets slammed. Happened with the super bowl storm too. I hope he does it more often :lol:

Not a bad snow to shovel at all and the cold air clears out the sinuses. Thinking 5"-ish? Another 1-2" would be a nice topper.

Action news did a 2pm update. A very intelligent reporter on the streets said if you're not careful you may slip and fall....

25F / snow/sleet mist

Precip stopped here for now. Already shoveled and the remnants melted which is nice. Maybe 3" just east of PHL. Heavy stuff to shovel. 

Welcome goal post brother all the good snow fell between us

lol go look at the NWS graphical map of snow totals. Such a narrow area got huge totals. I like tracking the storms more than the storms themselves so I am not really mad.

I agree though, 1-3" is super fine to end it out...

Will wait to see the final tally, but just eyeballing and shoveling that thump, even though not in the heaviest band,  dropped some snow.  Think we're right about 5".  Damp and very light drizzle.  Heat pumps are going through defrost cycles like crazy-lol

25 degrees
