    ZR continues at a steady rate here in NW Chester County PA - temp continues to rise very slowly but already up to 0.20" of ice accretion (see attached pic) here across East Nantmeal Township. Looks like temps should rise above freezing by around 10pm. All surfaces including main roads above 550ft are icy. Below 550 ft roads are much better as temps seem to have just risen above the freezing mark.

    Ended up with 3.5" of snow here today in East Nantmeal in Chester County Pa February MTD snowfall is now up to 8.6" our snowiest February since the 9.6" that fell in 2016. Our seasonal snowfall is now up to 23.3" which is only 3.6" below our average snow to date here in Chester County. Our seasonal average snow is 36.2" here in the NW burbs of Philly. Freezing rain is falling now with the temp up to 30.3 the high for the day....temps should continue to climb and get above freezing by later this evening. However a pretty good layer of ice has already begun to accrete on all surfaces.

    I see NWS just increased Chesco to expected total of 6" of snow - not too sure that verifies but low end of total of 3" has verified - continues to snow at a moderate clip with the temp up to 26.4

    Phillies and 76ers are getting busy

    I hope you are right - but if they don't get him it will not be the Phillies fault. They will no doubt throw him the most money - I have a nagging feeling the Nats will jump back in at the last minute and beat the best Phils offer - either way it has been one of the best off seasons I think the Phillies have ever had - Go Phils!!

    but as we both know - it may very well change with 0z data....
  14. I know you are speaking of my golfing "prowess" which is well not real strong (I was lucky with that one rather than good!) - confidence in my ability to forecast snow amounts against a professional like you....I do not fancy my chances!!
