HRRR and RAP nailed it

Best steady rates of the event underway now in Boston metro and will probably continue through 10pm

Very likely KBOS breaks 6" from 4.5" at 7pm

Maybe a little but depending on where it drops the most.... Back end big growth colder temps and no sun to deal with... This could be intriguing

This should be out of BOS by 2130 or 2200

It will be closer to 10...

That’s why I never get when people put down refreshers on top of snowpacks.  The entire pack now looks fresh, it could’ve all fallen today.  There’s none of that “old snow” look and the ambiance is extremely wintry.  Bring on the light, long duration events... so much winter vibe during those.

2015...Mar 2018 was pretty good but that double digit pack lasted maybe 2 weeks before dipping back under double digits. Peak depth was over 2 feet though in that one. Jan 2018 was similar...we achieved double digit pack on 1/4 and prob lost it around mid month with that obscene cutter.

Weve had double digit pack since 2/1 now this season. So I think you’d have to go back to 2015 to get it longer. 

This one looks to be around another week I would imagine.

I could see my area breaking 6" with another 3"+ to go tonight and tomorrow morning, right in line with the HRRR.

I was wondering how the Cape was doing. I thought you would have more than that

No Georgie tonight?  Or James?

I decided yesterday that I’m going to be checking out of this winter as long range guidance indicates the polar vortex is headed to the North Pole, and as long as that’s there I don’t expect another inch of snow this winter. I have been following this storm though and will report that I am at 4 inches or so, with what looks to be another inch or two as the final band of snow moves out, so it looks like I will end up at about 5-6 inches.

Most of the afternoon was spent with temps in the 33-34 degree range with decent mixing, especially mid to lower cape. Similar situation to 2/1, snow falling throughout the day but little to show for it thanks to being on the wrong side of the coastal front.

Most Cape locations had around 3 inches from yesterday which was a decent surprise, so won’t take much to get into the 4-6 range.

Last hurrah here. Just pure perfect hooked dendrite clumps falling. The visibility intensity on this is probably no more than moderate but it is likely at least an inch per hour due to the ratio

Been dumping for last few hours it seems.  Just did a 2nd driveway cleanup and there was the same on the driveway as my 1st cleanup when I got home at 5pm.  Over 5” now.
