Do you have selective thinking or something? Or were you asleep six hours before the storm? 

Some of you act like you're in high school. 

Not trying to be a jerk but the NAM was absolute trash with this storm. It drove a primary up almost into Ohio 3 days ago.

Finally getting that heavy sleet in Derwood. Might even be seeing some flakes mix in. Kids are happy as their daycare is closed. I guess we’ll go sleet sledding later

This NAM?

Way to pick out the worst run of the NAM at its longest range lol. What was king euro showing at that range, 10" of snow for MoCo?

 

The NAM had this down even 2 days ago. As of last night the Euro was still giving the region widespread 5" of snow.

 

Put another way... I've been hugging the NAM this entire event and I'm not bummed out at all. This has actually been a fun one to track and I'm getting in my yard exactly what I expected.

Maybe you don't understand the context. The pros said they were favoring the NAM. I mentioned this as a potential indicator of problems with our forecast. Some people jumped down my throat. Seems like you've joined the people who choose hostility because it doesn't show snow--but it's particularly strange because it's not even your backyard. 

Would be nice if I didn't have to present the rosiest outlook regardless. If you're not a red tagger here or part of some old school clique, you're not allowed to say certain things. Period. Hence, high school.

Still sleet in Fairfax, although under the orange returns seeing the cooling aloft happen in real time with clumpy sleet and even a few flakes making it down.

We need sustained orange to get there, guess we have a chance in the last couple hours based on radar.

The roads with a few inches of sleet are definitely worse than any of the other snow events we've had this year. The cold air last night has helped the precipitation bond more efficiently to the road surfaces. Southbound I-270 from the Frederick County line to about the ICC has a lot of wrecks.

It showed--BY FAR--the best solution last night. On Monday it's not in its range. 

You see, THIS is a terrible post. But I'm not part of the AmericanWx Mid-Atlantic mafia so only certain people are taken seriously. I've been far more objective with these storms than others. Get over yourselves.

I've been hearing a lot of sirens even in DC this morning; I live near a fire station so not super unusual but definitely more than most mornings.

Huge sleet pellets in N Arlington.  And some flakes!

Can confirm. The heaviest returns bring massive sleet pellets with a few flakes mixed in.
