That was a very nice Special Effect, here in Bucks.  For 10 or 12 hours the ground was frozen, so that I didn't have to manually remove mud from the dogs' paws before they destroyed my hardwood.  Now we're back to being Wet-sylvania, with temps above freezing, mud oozing where grass used to be, and mosquitoes thinking about stirring from their brief nap.

NWS is calling for a high near 50.  Probably need SPF 30 or thereabouts.  I'm not sure what the riptides are like today, at the Jersey Shore, but it seems like a viable thing to do in this weather.  Grab a blanket and a sandwich, head to the beach and catch some rays.

Just shy of 2" down this morning...temps have now crept just above the freezing mark. Hoping precip stays away for the remainder of the day....

Calling for 12"-18" in northern Maine before all is said and done. Definitely a long duration event, with the heaviest snow running tomorrow into Thursday morning.  Currently light snow and 11F.

It's 50 degrees here. Cold front looks to be out in Illinois/Indiana based on the current surface plots. Should be a very nice day here before the winds whip back in and really push us back to winter.

Gonna be interesting to see how much the next round actually accumulates here in the valley...sounding like more a rain to white rain event for the big of moisture, then how much precip actually once column truly cools. Sref mean holding steady at 4”

Temp at 37F DP at 34F

@Mike W IN ALTMAR looks to me that a number of people might get a surprise. I remember about 16yrs ago we had a similar setup, drizzly rain all day, suddenly picked up in intensity in the evening, quickly switched to sleet (ip) and we literally got about 4" of the stuff in 3 hrs, it was some of the hardest sleet rates if ever witness  in my life, totally caught everyone off guard. The interesting thing was about 5 miles east of my location they stayed plain rain.

Looks like the NWS is buying into a more amped solution. Upped me from 1-2 to 3-6.

Ended up with only about 2" from today's round.

Too bad it wasn't a little colder lol Would be a 2 foot event..

Instead we waste about 3/4" on liquid..

Ukmet has around 2" total liquid, changeover should come around 3-4 am wed..

Our a.m. news forecast had us near 55F today. 

ATTM, here at Lake Wall-o-Mudpack (aka IMBY) - it's  38F and rain. Badly busted on those temps - hardly a chance we get to even upper 40's now.

If this was true LES I would post in the other thread but this is more synoptic/hybrid, probably belongs better in here..

May be some stronger lake bands embedded in the "lighter" snow..
