  1. Mother's Day weekend Enhanced risk and Heavy rainfall

    It had gotten pretty warm earlier this afternoon - 76° at 5:07pm, but now down to 69 with east wind picking up in last 30 mins. Guess that means the warm front headed south again.
  2. Mother's Day weekend Enhanced risk and Heavy rainfall

    West Chester reporting in with 0.83" this morning in the bucket.
  3. 5/10 Slight Risk Of Thunderstorms Obs

    0.03" here in West Chester, but several good bolts. Took this heading north from Chadds Ford as the storms were coming in.
  4. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Just had a 60-second downpour here in Malvern that was so heavy that I had to stop talking in a meeting on the top floor of our building because the rain falling on the roof was so loud! The well-advertised line fired up just as HRRR said it would.
  5. Downtown West Chester reporting in. About 2" on the ground now, and snowing very heavily. Temp is 32F Streets are covered. I've got way too many browser windows open trying to track/follow this thing!
  6. March Lion Obs (Wind, Rain, Snow, Blowing Trash)

    Just drove home to West Chester from Malvern down 202. Cars were getting quickly coated with slushy snow in parking lot. Drive home had reduced visibility and really could feel the car shaking in the winds. Wawa in town is on cash-only basis because frequent power outages require 20-minute boot-up time for their POS systems. They were even taking sandwich orders by paper! I wouldn't hesitate to get on the road and safely home. Max gust here was 38mph at 11:34am Barometer is 997.5 and rising rapidly Temp 32F, Dew 31F
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Snowing on our luminaries here in downtown West Chester! 38F Dew 31F
  10. 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!
  11. Can confirm - moderate snow here in West Chester. Streets still just wet. Temp 24F Dew 18F
  12. Now light snow in west chester temp 26F dew 15F
  13. Flurries just started here in West Chester
  14. 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)
  15. 9/5 Slight Risk Of Severe Storms Obs

    Yep 34mph gust here in West Chester.
