Well they issued WSW for the higher areas with 8-10" total.  I bet we get 6"+ IMBY because it is snowing a nice steady pace with fluffy snow.  Roads are a mess but with 4X4 and snow tires I didn't have any issues.  It can be a little tricky because our "2-lane road" leading off the mountain isn't wide enough for two cars.

Pittsburgh NWS - overproducing :)

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
730am update...
Snow is accumulating faster than originally forecasted for areas
south of I-70, especially in the higher terrain of WV/MD. Given
the next few hours will be the highest accumulation period and
decent bands of heavier snow appearing of radar, have upgraded
our southwest higher terrain zones to warnings. The 24 hour
totals will be low-end warning for these areas, but they will
likely exceed our 12 hour accumulation criteria during this
time. Will continue to monitor additional zones farther west and
south of I-70 for potential of needing to upgrade them as well.
That said, especially for areas in SW OH, snowfall rates will
start to drop as snow begins to end in this region.

I think around 1600-1700’.  We are between the lowlands and the higher elevations so I end up getting more than Morgantown but 2 miles to my east, Coopers Rock, usually gets a few more inches than me.   Even in my neighborhoood there is a noticible difference between my house and the top of our development.  I’ll take a pic from my favorite part of our neighborhood when I leave for work this morning and post it - the pine trees always make it look awesome.  

The places you mention probably get double what I get with this sort of storm.

Hey buddy....good deal man, yea I know right where you mean with regard to Coopers Rock.

Hi there pal.....long time (no talk to) as I think the last time was back over at the Accu-Wx forums. 

Anyhow I’m glad to see Delaware is and has been getting some love down this way in our neck of the woods, I’ve now got a heavy dusting as well.

Not quite a “coating” yet however ....lol

Light snow in Harrisburg PA - roads are a bit slick.

Chuckled when I saw the HRDPS run this morning. The High Pressure Army of New York is defending its boarders well! All's quiet on the western front.

Looks like it started snowing a little after 2 this morning in Pittsburgh. It's still only 9 degrees here, which means we haven't seen a double digit temp at KPIT in 52 hours now! Not sure how much snow we have since I was in a little of a rush to make the bus this morning (thankfully it takes not heavily traffic filled roads, so I was only 5-10 minutes late since there plows were able to clean them) but I'm thinking we'll finish this with 3 inches or so. Nice little event before the warm up!

Overproducing  - cannot wait to see how much I have at home.  Still snowing at a steady rate but not as hard.

Yeah buddy and it's great to have so many others too from back then!  Delaware can use any snow it can get this year.  Really hard to come by but I am not complaining cause small events like this have been around.  I'll take it.  Just before noon and not looking too shabby out.   Almost about time to go out and catch some 4x4ing and some beers with the hunny! :cheers:

Snow picked up here at my work near New Holland, PA.  Was just light / micro flakes all morning and now bigger flakes and snowing moderately.  Looks like 1/2" so far this morning.

This type of brutal cold "squashes" dynamics. In other words, because the cold is so dense, it tends to lead to a shift in the dynamics to lower within the atmosphere. 

Edit : This was exhibited with the low topped convection in regards to the snow squall Wednesday.

It's been snowing lightly here since at least 7am, that's when I looked out to check, as they weren't calling for it to start until later this morning. Everything is coated again with maybe 1/2" or so.

Temp: 14F DP: 6F
Moderately snowing. Coating down already.
Just got back from a walk, and it was great. Walked through the boggy woodland out back that was completely frozen.
Hands got cold, but it was great.

The roads must be bad, 283 westbound is closed at State Rd due to accidents.
