Feb 12/13 Event Quest for Blues to Envelop More Rather Than Less

North Balti Zen

Recommended Posts

I will say this… despite not getting the region wide  KU we all yearn for, I have seen some impressively heavy snow fall this winter. On multiple occasions. Even if the duration was fairly short lived. 

HEAVY snow right now. The band doesn’t appear to be moving very quickly either

Yellows firing west of DC moving up 95 dynamics are kicking in

Yessir. NAM did a good job yesterday showing 2 potential precip max stripes - one near 95 and one further NW. Seems like it ended up being moreso in Maryland than Staunton and the northern blue ridge, but so far, it’s done a pretty damn good job handling the overall setup. I’m certainly happy up this way so far. Looks like we’ve got plenty to go too.

There is a heavy snow swath that currently spans from Harrisonburg VA to NW NJ. Impressive moisture feed going on.

It rarely happens, but sometimes… just sometimes… these boundary setups break our way and we end up JUST on the right side of the fall line, which is where heaviest precip tends to fall. Playing out as well as we could have asked for considering we lost the phasing threat days ago and we’re relying entirely on a jet feature. 

Said it earlier on…  if the metros managed to flip to snow fairly early on, places along and north of 70 are likely going to boom - especially higher elevations.

Time to go out for a jebwalk!
