  1. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    The weather for Broad Street this morning was about as close to perfect running weather as you can get.

    Just drove through mixed rain/snow squalls on the way home from work, including in the city. Uggghhhhfxmxfeahaevevafa

  4. 2017/2018 Seasonal snowfall totals

    31.3" - Center City. We had 0.1" on 4/2.
  5. Grade the Winter of 17'-18'

    B December was almost a knock out, with the warm spike surrounding Christmas day itself keeping it from an A+. Love the snowfall that time of the year, long duration fluffy snow on a Saturday while out and about Christmas shopping made it even better. Several small systems that month kept replenishing a perfect holiday dusting. January sucked, super cold but very little snow made it a boring, brown/gray month. February was alright. No snow but lots of warmth, which I start to want once Valentine's Day is over. I have mixed feelings about March. I hate (and I mean hate) springtime in Philadelphia. It doesn't get warm until May or June, and every April I curse myself (but not really, but kinda) for leaving the South. That said, if it's going to be cold, it may as well snow, and March delivered a couple wild, wet, quick-hitting snowstorms for the city. Were they sloppy? Sure. But sloppy snow sure as hell beats 45 degrees, gray, and windy. So I give it a B. Great start to the season, wild end to the season, not a standout winter by any means, but all in all the city had at least four ankle-deep snows, which is a solid performance.
  6. 2017/2018 Seasonal snowfall totals

    Center City 12/9 - 5.0 12/13 - 0.9 12/15 - 2.3 12/30 - 1.6 1/4 - 3.6 1/17 - 0.5 2/17 - 1.4 3/2 - 1.7 3/7 - 5.9 3/20-21 - 8.3 Total: 31.2 How's that for a winter? December 9.8, January 4.1, February 1.4, March 15.9
  7. CC Currently drizzling/misting. 1.4" since 6:30 PM That makes 7" flat for today (not counting whatever melted between 4:30 and 6:00) and 8.3" total. Melting has once again commenced, and we've sat at about 6.5" on the ground since sundown. Considering its tragic placement between the northwest banding today and Jersey's banding tonight, I think the city did pretty well for itself. The thick layer of sleet underfoot no doubt saved the forecast, as did the crazy cold (for March) daytime temps. Strangely enough, globs of snow only started sliding off the trees once the sun went down. Technical win for the NWS, as the city made the 8-12" called for.
  8. 1.3" in the past three hours in CC. Puts us at just under 9 inches thus far. Still holding steady, although I suspect we've risen above freezing. I need to get a thermometer...
  9. CC measurement as of 6:30 PM: 4.1" on the ground (or, the trash can) since 12:30. Total depth, however, went from 2.5" to 5.9". So we had 0.7" of compaction, give or take, after 12:30. Query whether to add 0.7" to the 12:30 total. Anyways, 1.3 yesterday plus 1.5 this morning plus 4.1 this afternoon leaves 6.9" so far for the city. Or 7.6" if compensating for compaction/melting. Either way, biggest snow of the season.
  10. I did not! Had something to get done for work, unfortunately... Perks of working from home and not having to go in at 5 am.
  11. Looks like CC is exiting the dryslot. Slight melting/compacting from 4:30 - 6:00 or so, but there's a new dusting on top. My 6:30 measurement will probably be about what was there at 4. Curious to see what the backside produces.
  12. Wind finally starting to knock some of this off
  13. Puttin it down in the city VID_20180321_151302.mp4
  14. Measured 1.5" of new snow in CC at 12:30 PM, on top of yesterday's 1.3" snow/sleet, which had compressed down to about 1". Has started picking up since then.
  15. I will say, the rain moistening everything up this morning sure has made for a beautiful snow. These fluffy flakes are sticking to every little twig and brick bond in sight.
