I'm thinking on northern edge could be some drier air aloft which isn't fully saturating column. Thus, looks good on radar but not good ground truth

That makes sense...it keeps starting and shutting off here. Riding the fence between moisture and dry air...

As of 1 PM, snow total for PHL is 2.3 inches.

That sounds much better Mike and more in line with other areas around, Thanks for looking into it and fixing it

Might be better off getting the lawn mower out instead of the snow blower.

According to the NOAA radar, my home keeps getting hit by blues, light greens, and dark greens. My daughter measured between 2.5 - 2.75" on the grill.

Hoping for their and my wife's sake that we'll get the additional 0.3" of qpf through 1am and sub-freezing temperatures predicted by the HRRRRRRR and they get an additional school day tomorrow.

Speaking of snowblowers...had mine taken in and found out it was basically a goner (unless I wanted to pump 2/3 the value of the snowblower into it. So I'm going to roll the dice on not needing one for awhile. Probably a safe bet (jinx, hopefully). It was a hand me down from my father in law (a 94' John Deere TRS 22) so it lived a good life.

Oh I see a blizzard in your future. It will be a back breaker for sure. This is the kind of mentality we need to get a big storm! 😉

This feels like an old fashioned event. Over 12 hours of continuous snowfall and still going. Nothing is sticking at this point, but still nice to see.

Snow starting to pick-up a little after a long period of flurries and net melting. 34F

buying a brand new snow blower is the ultimate kiss of death

I need to move again, I've moved 5 times in my lifetime & the subsequent winters were 1966-67, 1977-78, 1986-87, 1993-94 & 2013-14

It appears the NWS has upgraded Berks County to a Winter Storm Warning with a possible 5-7 inches of snow. 

This forecast seems aggressive to me based on what I've read here and in the thread in the Short Term section. Did some model runs this afternoon cause them to bump totals up?

I didn’t see anything that warranted 5-7”. Everything mainly under 4”

The warning is cause of ice imo. Though the snowfall qualifies too but it’s mainly for ice

.20 ice is close enough for the warning probably
