Future radar shows south of rt30 there won’t be a lull

That's exactly the way it appears to be setting up. I live 5 miles north of 30 and there's just some flurries according to my wife. I work about 5 miles south of 30 and it's legit -SN.

I live about 200 yards from Route 30 in Gap.  On the south side.  I am going to get out of the office now and just drive home, and probably won't come back until Wednesday.  Will be interesting to see how conditions change from West Chester WSW out that way.

Perhaps I will camp out along I-95 along-side PHL airport and measure the snow myself. :)

Still no PHL?   I already left National Park without taking even a ruler in the grass measurement for comparison...at my brothers in North Brunswick now barely a dusting.

I am just talking off the top of my head and this is how my =/>6" bust can occur.  If you get some sort of stall occurring south of PHL between the ridge trying to nose south and the overrunning that cant advance, there could be a jackpot stripe where they get it from both shots before the warm aloft "wins".  HRRRRRRRRRRRR has an additional 2-3" down there; it's not unfounded given what the radar looks like right now.

Yea, the only thing they are fighting right now is the feb sun angle. So they are going to need some good rates to offset that and marginal temps

Not too far down the road from you in West Deptford I measured 2.25” around 7am before I left for work. We probably accumulated a few tenths more since then, but not sure.

There will be more tonight; the bigger cash in tonight should be northwest, at least that is what Chris told me to post.  BTW PHL changed to 2.0" thru 7am.

Looking at MD cameras, snow rates really don't seem to be producing liek you would think looking at radar

Really surprised at the < 10:1 ratios.  I thought Tom broke into my backyard last night and threw a bunch of snow into my 4" gage.

That is "good", I do have an ego and bust enough without trying.

I hate being at work on days like this, great photo opportunities are wasted.

This big time. I can't do one of my favorite hobbies. Looking forward to retirement so work doesn't get in the way. :)
