Widespread Snow Potential January 16th to January 18th


Recommended Posts

979 in Central PA?? Wow, is this thing trending stronger on the current surface map? 1000mb double barrel. Is this jumping to the coast early??

18z NAM at about the same hour is 994....WAY over-amped... 3k NAM has the LP at 993 at 21z (surface map above is 21z - 1000mb)

996 over eastern NC right now. So it will be comical to see it track NW like that. 

See my post? Surface map at 21z had the LP at 1000mb, the 3k NAM at 21z was 993.

EDIT: 23z surface is now 996 (like you said), 3k NAM has it at 994. The move the LP NW a bit then due North. Hmm.

I was wondering the same thing as I was looking at radar. It looks like the area along the coast is developing more than the inland low.

Just as an upstream warning for you guys, we are having mixing issues that weren't supposed to be showing up, so it looks like the models picking up on it weren't wrong.

It's switching back and forth between sleet and heavy snow and then snow with sleet mixed in.

Trying to understand why the HRRR jumps the LP to the coast, weakens the primary, then re-strenghtens it, and ultimately merges the 2 again further west.  Anyone wanna explain that one?? ;)

Snowacane?

Was originally at late 80s toro with a 7.5 HP motor handed down by my wife’s grandfather. When the original motor threw a rod I swapped it for a 13hp harbor freight and added the battery. I changed the pulley for the auger so it spins a little faster, and recently added rubber paddles to the second stage. The lid is Ss, I had to add that to keep snow out of the carb and governor linkage. Added the autobots logo while I was at it. The distance that it can throw snow is comical. Maybe I’ll finally get some video with this storm tomorrow. 

Holy crap and I thought mine was a monster. You can probably throw snow over your neighbor’s house. I thought that was stainless steel. My father worked as a sheet metal cutter mostly cutting stainless steel for dairy storage tanks. Way back in the day his employer let them make things out of stainless scraps. He made things from ash trays to a Christmas tree stand, a desk for my younger sister and probably the only stainless steel Christmas manger in the world.  Those modifications probably added 50 lbs to your blower.

There are lots of reports in the Pittsburgh thread of the snow mixing with or changing to sleet and then back to snow like every other minute.

Lots of sleet mixing in here still.  Had only 2 inches of snow but radar showed .6 inches of liquid.
