Sitting at 18 degrees.

Amazing that it has taken 4 hours to reach from Hershey/Lebanon to the LV.  Zero virga here but clearly plenty there

Agreed!!  It seems like a ever changing  situation. . !! Might even change yet again in the next 6 hours!!!

Oh for sure, can almost count on it! 

We actually just backed into quarters following a call, and it’s again snowing here near APG “southernmost Harford County”

I have not looked, but what is it showing for ice accretion? 

Looks like a wide spread half inch of it across PA and NW NJ.

Is the primary trough actually going more neutral than expected in the Midwest? Just wondering. I don't see a lot of evidence for it

Go to the SPC mesoscale analysis page and compare the current zulu time vs what is being shown on the latest mesoscale models (like NAM, HRRR & RGEM). It's fun to see the minor differences between models and reality.

Trying to stay awake long enough to see some flakes fall this evening.  Unfortunately, the virga has won.

good night!

And, now I finally see flakes.  2 hrs to overcome the dry air, but the column is officially saturated.

Good night, again.  May you all get the accumulations you’re hoping for!

Very good. We Don't gloat in the hills.

We sit on our outdoor couches and count the flakes.

We're still looking at a mid-morning start, thought, right?  Between 9 and 11?

Hobie I could be wrong but I think the answer is NOT necessarily. The radar needs to be watched and we need to see if the models had it correct and that the moisture on the radar stalled or does not advance more quickly then it was advertised earlier today. If that moisture starts moving NORTH I think its game on and the start time would be moved up----I could be mistaken
