  1. 1/8 Snow/Ice Obs.

    Drove south on 202 from Malvern to boro of West Chester. Only rain coming down, and roads were just wet all the way home. However sidewalk, steps and parked cars are covered in glaze of ice. Traffic was slower (45-50mph) but still some idiots going faster. Temp here is 27F.
  2. 1/3-1/4 Nor'easter OBS: Who will win ? Bus ?

    Just arrived in West Chester after driving from Newark NJ airport this morning (son flew in from overseas). Took 3 hours (typically <2 hrs), never went more than 45mph. NJ and PA turnpikes and Rt. 202 were snow covered the whole way - rarely saw blacktop. Just had to find some tracks and stay in them. Saw several spinouts; low visibility. Thank goodness I just got new tires yesterday and new wipers a couple weeks ago! Traffic volume was light. Plow trains were plentiful but made for slow going behind them. It was just a slow grind with several white-knuckle moments!
  3. Snowing on our luminaries here in downtown West Chester! 38F Dew 31F
  4. I have to add my commute horror story. Son was coming home from Pitt being driven by his roommate, so I arranged to meet them at Quakertown exit off northeast extension. Took me 2.5 hours to go from West Chester to there. Rt. 202 was 20mph tops and totally snow-covered northbound, a complete parking lot southbound at least from Rt. 29 down to Rt. 3. Got on the turnpike at Rt. 29 and had a couple miles of complete wet-road, no-traffic bliss before coming to a stop. Then I completed the last 6 miles til the northeast extension in one hour. Absolutely brutal. NE was heaven, just wet and speeds up to 60. Picked him up, turned around and made it home in 55 minutes going the other direction. Thanks for listening!
  5. Can confirm - moderate snow here in West Chester. Streets still just wet. Temp 24F Dew 18F

  7. Flurries just started here in West Chester
  8. Wednesday Night December 13th Clipper Obs

    Nothing more to add than what's already been said - solid thick coating on everything and moderate snowfall rates. Very pretty! (I can't believe I just said that)
  9. 9/5 Slight Risk Of Severe Storms Obs

    Yep 34mph gust here in West Chester.
  10. A whopping 0.17" in the bucket here in downtown WC. Really having trouble cashing in on precip this year - all around us but not here. Thinnest part of line hit us tonight. Weird! Nice lightning show, although this was a good test of our new rescue dog, and he didn't pass :-(
  11. 8/18 Thunderstorms, Heavy Rain Obs

    Same here. West Chester with pitiful 0.23" total. Sun now out.
  12. FYI (for those of you who read my forecasts)

    Thank you Tom for your dedication and efforts. I really appreciated your take on the weather and enjoyed reading your posts. They were so easily understandable to the layperson and helped me learn a lot. Best wishes to whatever's next!
  13. That makes 2.02" for today in downtown West Chester, adding to yesterday's 1.53" for total of 3.55". Nice!
  14. Some how some way we didn't even get a drop from this! WTH??
