Looks like I could be under a dry slot in Newtown for awhile after this batch rotates through from the southeast. Doesn’t look like too much coming up from the immediate southwest either as the overall system moves northeast

 

The WeatherTAP radars posted above look so much more filled in than the RadarScope super res

Slowly transitioning to snow here. Feeling a little more hopeful now, just need to wait a bit.

GIS definitely has been a booming field for past decade. Getting used in NWS more. To make this wx related, I think this will be an uphill struggle today for you all.

I am! Yeah, the commercial license we have at work is $5,000+, but there's a non-commercial license I use to mess around, gets you everything for $100/year.

That's the main holdback with use in the NWS, no $$$ for licenses.

Hey guys,

I work as a GIS Analyst so, if you want, once this is over, I can take that google spreadsheet and make a pretty good map of the totals. There's definitely enough data points around the area.

That's a great idea! Will you be using the Kriging tool in ArcGIS for the analysis?  Or another method?

All snow in NE Philly now. Snowing at a steady rate somewhere between light and moderate. Coating on all surfaces now even the black top on my street.

Those that get the bandzzz today will do well. Otherwise, the struggle will be real.

When I graduated from PSU, I was told that the starting salary for a GIS analyst at AccuWeather was actually higher than entry-level mets.

Mike Gorse can confirm on that :(. Accuwx pays less than most places for mets.

Looks like some really heavy banding moving north out of MD into Lancaster/Chester.  Right up the Chesapeake.
