    Absolutely, perfect description of that run. We have many days to go until an idea for this one is sorted out.

    Weird run so far. Transfers from near St. Louis to coastal South Carolina and then goes back to showing the low the Midwest being the primary one?

    That would just be confined to the highest peaks in North Carolina.

    I haven't seen a model with that far of a northern extent in days.

    This is only one model, correct? I've noticed it's been very consistent in predicting near normal temps lately while in the same period, the CPC likes the idea of it being above normal.

    It's definitely a city to check out and probably only a three and a half hour drive front Lancaster County I'd imagine! Pittsburgh is certainly one of the hilliest cities in the country and actually is home the steepest street in the country I believe. It doesn't take much snow with the hills here for things to get dicey at all!

    As I remember many using as a winter this one could look like, this year is really starting to look like winter 2014-15 IMBY. Both featured a well below normal Nov with above normal snowfall (though not by much) and a December that looks to feature a long stretch of at or above normal temps with very little snowfall. At least we've had 2 inches of snow so far this December instead of a dusting like in 2014 lol, but looking at the long range models there is a chance we could go a long stretch without snow, much like in Dec 2014.

    Great choice for a neighborhood in the city! I love how unique the topography and layout of it is. It really in way feels more like a European mountain village than a neighborhood in urban America. It's not right in the action of the South Side, but it's quite close and is close to Downtown and Oakland as well. Being up the hill, they can do better with snow in marginal events than the valley locations just below them too.

    It's only December 6th, calm down..... Almost no one in this NE/Mid Atlantic forecast area is getting anything this time. Pittsburgh has had three snow events so far and is going to get its 4th tonight. None have been big granted, but with tonight's snow, we'll be about where the rest of the I-95 corridor is with snow so far this year. Last year we didn't even get our first 1 inch snowfall until December 11th and finished the season well above normal.

    It was an odd event in Pittsburgh yesterday as snowfall totals were pretty localized overall. When driving through Downtown, the North Hills, and East End, you kept going back and forth between areas that had up to an inch on the ground to places that barley had anything. Some places just had localized banding that moved slowly and helped them while others stayed out of them and had snow that wasn't heavy enough to stick well. Fortunately I live (for now) in one of the areas that has the close to an inch on the ground :P

    Pretty sure that's their panic level, not snow totals lol. Seems like a pretty good idea of where to expect the worst. I find it odd though their 'everything closes' is before a shovel would be needed.

    Yeah I sadly think this is a lost cause for anyone north of the Mason Dixon line and I'm not far from thinking the same applies as far south as DC.

    Seems like this has been a bit of an over preformer here in Pittsburgh. Been snowing for the last 5-6 hours or so with many times it has been coming down moderately. Back end of one batch coming through now before more in Eastern Ohio pushes in. Might have been close to half an inch on the car when I left at 8 am, so would imagine we've had an inch by now at my house.

    I remember this one well. The night before, they said Pittsburgh would only get an inch and the worst would miss us to the south and east. Woke up that morning to calls for 5-6 inches and school cancelled. That was a fun storm.

    It honestly makes me laugh though how as soon as it looked it was going to push north into PA that it began to dry out, precip in the western areas moved south and other parts moved east 😂.
