Almost 1.5" on the ground, the flake size increased over the past hour. I can hear a few pingers with the snow already. Hopefully we can hold it off for another hour but doubtful. All surfaces covered. Good luck out in the colder spots!! I am at almost 18" inches for January, and looking forward to the next 10 days.

That’s an explicit idea and although I was rebuked about where the main center of circulation is, it seems like you concur.  When NWS was jumping all over the place late this morning they had DcA mixing by now then reverted back to snowfall slightly past dark.  We are losing the high pressure support but the low well may end up east of here and not over or west.  1994 had one like this but the snow only lasted 30 minutes then low 20’s  freezing rain.  Right now low would have to head NW to end up west of DC.  Memories of that kind of move from on the  coast are very rare. 

I think that’s exactly what models have been showing. The low getting somewhere near the coast and then being pulled due NW after being captured by that NS feature. If only the low could beat the NS feature to the punch and continue ENE. We’d be so money.

We are still holding on to our northerly surface winds. I dont see the surface getting above freezing out here now. Gonna be really ugly once we flip out here.

Yeah man, I think my area over to yours is in for a nasty evening of ice. Zero doubt our mid levels get rekt, but the surface? Hard time seeing us climbing above freezing

Watch it close please and inform if you see that non NW motion taking shape

I'm just hoping we can hang on to the mid-levels or at least sleet till the dry slot arrives.

I know some folks like to rely on models like the HRRR & RAP mid storm, which can be useful for a point of reference no doubt, but I tend to watch pressure maps and the radar like a hawk during storms. Nowcasting is the most reliable tool during game time for me. Even when things unfold as expected, it’s exciting to watch.
