Airport looks like it’s been catching the northern fringe of the band. 

1.5” in the last two hours, with 2” total.

Steubenville/Wintersville area is about 25 miles southwest and is pushing 6”. Some of those types of totals will likely translate east. 

Definitely a nowcast storm. Certainly looked like the sweet spot would be further south.

 

 

 

 

Correction - 7” already in Steubenville

Looking at the radar, probably not. 

I’m also thinking no. Meanwhile there’s a report from Imperial, a few miles away, of 4”. It’s like the streak just doesn’t want to end or the NWS observer doesn’t want it to.

There’s a 6.5” report in Imperial.  I don’t see how the airport doesn’t reach 3”.  And if it doesn’t I don’t think I could trust the recorders.  The airport was absolutely seeing parts of that heavy band.

It was kind of fringed, and the NWS is on Shafer road with is even a touch north from there.

Ah but the NWS office isn’t at the airport, it’s a little north and that’s where the obs is taken.

Seeing also 6+ in Plum too. Which basically means that band…cutting through the center of the entire length of Allegheny County will wind up dropping 6-8”.

Even though that cuts through a pretty populated swath, not sure we have a ton of posters that got to enjoy it full on. But still a pretty remarkable event.
