Central PA Winter 2022/2023

Recommended Posts

That tropical tidbits map that includes sleet with the snowfall makes the 3k NAM look halfway competent with this event. It was showing less than 1.5” south of I-80 in almost all of central PA on model sites that separate that out as recently as 6z this morning. The 12z run still didn’t even pick up on any Sus Valley snowfall, even in Harrisburg. 

IMO, during events such as this, where you're flirting within a few degrees of freezing and have a WAA push, it can be helpful to look at the tropical tidbits snowfall that "includes sleet" because that shows the potential for a slushy mix occurring if things work out on the front end. I was a little surprised that WGAL had removed the "coating to 1 inch" contour from southern Lancaster and SE York counties last night.

Thought snow had ended up here in Harrisburg but it has just started again, looks to be the last hurrah.  Buddy and I were being absolutely pelted in the face with blowing snow on the walk back from lunch.  I would guess 2 inches up here but have no way of verifying that.  Looking like the over/under of one inch for back home will be pretty darn close, just hope there's some left by the time I get there ~5pm.

either the storm had way less precip with it like I hinted at earlier or maybe it wasnt as strong to pull in more moisture? it was said to last till 3pm with snow then heavy ish rain for tonight?

Down here in the western Philly burbs of Chester County we briefly went to a mix of sleet and rain but now back to mostly snow. Here in East Nantmeal I have recorded 0.8" of snow today...this represents our "biggest" snow event of the season which brings our monthly total up to 1.3" which is 7.2" below normal for January to date. For the winter season we now stand at 2.1" which is 12.6" below our normal snow of 14.7" for the season to date for Chester County PA.

About an inch of snow here. On to the next threat of 1in of accumulated snowfall, when ever that will be.

Interesting as that is yet another late nod to the last 12-24 hour Rgem for the LSV at least.  Had lesser amount for you than the south LSV where many got 2-3".   The Kuch was way too low...10-1 was a better indicator despite the questionable temps.     A meso picking up a meso level event across part of south PA.

Mother nature shoveled for me.  LOL.  Still a little slush but staying near or above freezing tonight so no issue there. 

Ended up with about an inch and a half but it's basically gone now. January 25th and haven't gotten the snow shovels out of the shed or the snow blower yet this season

You and I had a very similar experience.  I am going with 2" here but that is a close estimate.  The rain and mid 30's have washed it away.   Seems like we were on the wrong side of South Mountain for this one.

Only 1" near Pine Grove Furnace is the one that sticks out here.  Maybe their report was in too early to get the final count.
