This is just wrong.  I'm working, minding my own business and this notification pops up in the corner of my screen.  It's the WxDisco notice that Accuchris is posting, and now I got that mug of his leering at me.  Auughh!

Edit:  everyone should probably go back to bottom of page 39 and read, though.  Important info to digest.  

Page topper, boom!  Here's lookin' at ya , kid!!

We still will probably see a couple more events, any of them big is the question for the coastal plain. I'm with you on spring, hopefully it's not a case of a delayed spring again this year.

LUCC varmit Phil is on your side for Spring

Been watching the HRRR for the most part this morning. Very surprised to see how long they have it staying snow IMBY. It feels like a lot of people are downplaying this in my area, and I really don't think that's wise.

Interesting obs here in Lebanon.  Temp had climbed to 36F with a DP of 31F a couple hours ago when clouds thinned and brightened as the nest frontogenic forcing was to my south.  Now, clouds have thickened up again, breeze is out of the NE and my temp has gone under 33F now with my DP back down to 27F.  It appears this is due to both a drier ageostrophic flow coming in north of the boundary to my south and also the start of increased lifting above me as clouds thicken and starts to reduce the solar insolation that was occurring before. I suspect as snow breaks out again this evening temps should wetbulb back to the upper 20s and be stuck there all night and most of tomorrow

Cold air tends to be very dry. One of the reasons why wet bubling (evaporational cooling) works.

I thought I posted it under the wrong thread! No worries. Difficult in some places to discern one storm over another as some places havent stopped precipitating from the lead wave and whats to come tonight. For some it will feel like one drawn out continuous system. Regardless I reposted and my temp had dropped further so it reinforced my point!

High temp so far is 30F today...so not that cold up this way, but RH in the mid 30% range...so yeah dry. Not bone dry, but dry...
