That band filling in out west looks pretty solid. Might be able to steal another inch. And the quality of the snow should be better as well. Temps are nice and cold out here. We'll see. 

Where you are there is a decent chance for that as you already have some snow otg and the cold entrenched. My recent posts were more about the general setup and the tendency for the outcome to be underwhelming, despite those weenie snow maps everyone loves lol. I got exactly what I expected here. Maybe I can get a band or 2 come through that will whiten the ground a bit.

My border collie bounces off the walls if he isn't outside running and snow and mud days put a damper on things.
I suited up and went for a walk.  He had a blast gathering sticks!

 

Sorry about the wind noise, I was trying to get a decent sound in this video of the trees groaning.  They are covered in ice/snow.  Doesn't take much to get them complaining LOL.

12pm 28° wind blown snow now, maybe there are pixie flakes falling still, hard to tell. Measured 3”. Will be interesting to see what that developing band does west 

just noticed that.  round two i guess lol.  must be some enhancement from the ull energy.

Most sheltered places around 7” if you subtract some for “grass”. But I can’t find a good paved surface to use. And I scalp my lawn for winter so it doesn’t add too much. 
 

One oddity…walked down my hill to my mailbox which is a 1/4 mile away and about 200 feet lower down the ridge. I’ve never seen as significant a difference. Can’t imagine 200 feet made that much difference. Maybe it was wind exposure. Dunno. But you can see for yourself.

We got stragglers coming in, look like volcanic ash.  When big gusts shake snow off the (pine) line it looks like a viscous fog ready to eat everything in its path and the deck rail almost disappears!

Nice pics. That last one looks wind blown. I wouldn't think that elevation difference would make much difference in this situation.

Your area got the best forcing and also good timing.

speaking from 300 feet lower than you...it made a difference.

Wow that is incredible!  That wasn't all wind.  Your micro climate is fascinating -- how about summer?  If Balt is say mid-90s, what about you?

I'm thinking the same for here as well. I'm at 27.8. Wind is blowing snow around like powder. I think this next round will probably give us NW fokes a little more fun. Flakes seem to be increasing already.

Wow that's wild. 

And 7 inches is a great event up there. It's not HRDPS stuff, but it certainly verified the other models, especially since you will likely tack on another inch or two with Round 2.
