The amount of complaining in here is comical. This storm looked like it was headed for Buffalo a week ago y'all. Frozen stuff is falling from the sky. Be happy.

Hi, welcome to BillyBob's Weather Mart, how can I help you? What's that? Oh... no we ain't got that. But if you go to the North, East, or South they might have some.

FYI, avoid I-270 folks...it's a mess.

I was worried about that when I looked this morning and saw how much traffic was heading in.  I said nope, I'll work from home today.

At what point does this become hail

 That looks exactly like the sleet/ mangled-flake? I just measured. I measured some ice chunks between 0.25-0.5" across.

The sleet is bonding to the road surface more efficiently than snow. The ICC is having similar problems, especially on the bridges.

Weenies wanted to believe in the PARA so bad...skewed their expectations.

Sleet ongoing here. Still only 24 degrees. My big dilemma right now is when to clear the driveway???

  I'm not part of the AmericanWx Mid-Atlantic mafia so only certain people are taken seriously.  

      The disappointment is palpable since the models largely missed the deal............The quoted statement somewhat rings true, the forum is often a hostile place to comments if you're not a street-credded member.  And banter anytime (only for the mafia though or you get lit up) even when in storm mode................ BUT, being taken seriously is earned, which is why I'm not a regular poster.....( On topic, It's a sleetfest right now in Chestertown, roads are terrible. 3 people live here, I'm the only poster I know of rom this northish part of the sticks) Not north enough!

      So, smartass that I am, I'll go back to chuckling at the meltdowns and the butthurt, reading but not posting. This site is a place to learn from others, and I see posters who were once vilified now being accepted as valid contributors. Why? because they are making valid contributions (unlike this post) The more knowledgeable definitely prefer it that way from most of us .............there are people who have apparently have a lot of time to spend on writing comments, which is what makes it fun. Well, depending on who it is, some folks are just in their own world. If it wasn't fun, why would anyone be involved in this madness-inducing hobby? Have fun and be safe!             %)

I don’t think I’ve ever seen it sleet as hard as it is in Rockville right now 

2017, there was a sleet. It's why I was so hyped over this storm. This is just like it, and it was one of my first major winter events I had ever experienced.

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2017/03/13/updates-snow-moving-into-d-c-area-precipitation-to-become-heavy-late-tonight/

 

9:00 a.m. update: For all those wondering, Reagan National Airport says it has received two inches of snow so far. That’s right in the middle of reports from around the immediate metro which range from one to three inches of snow and sleet. Dulles had picked up 2.6 inches as of early this morning. The White House, as of 7 a.m. had record 2.5 inches (and an impressive 2.34 inches of liquid equivalent).

So once the precip exits, is that it? Are we still thinking there may be more overnight into Friday? I’ve been so focused on onset..

Yeah, everyone stop complaining about a storm for most that was supposed to drop 3-6 or 4-8 and has been actually worse than the other joke storms we've had with a couple inches of snow and then slop. Baltimore hasn't had a warning verified since the blizzard of 2016 but you all spend ridiculous amounts of time tracking snowstorms and should just suck it up and live with it and be happy getting drilled in the face with ice cubes.

Mostly...could be a lighter band of sleet/mixed snow late this evening into early overnight...but for most of us, this is the show

There must be an upsloping factor or something because you're due east from me and it seems you're always colder/snowier. 

It lasted for about 1 minute lol and then went back to sleet.
