  4. In my larger area of Hunterdon County, I can drive about 4 or 5 miles north or northwest and the snowfall observations will almost always be higher. Thanks for the photo, @frankdp23. I always glad when our measurements are in line with each other. LOL

  6. Finally tally of snow/sleet for Feb 18th to 19th snow/sleet/freezing rain storm: 4.1 inches of snow/sleet with 1/10th of an inch of ice. After about 12:5 pm on the 18th it was sleet mixed with freezing rain for the rest of that day. We had a break from the precipitation the night of the 18th/19th until around 3AM when more freezing rain set in. Finally, by late morning on the 19th it changed back to snow. Fortunately, I did not get my driveway plowed until just after lunch on the 19th, so there was snow under the ice on my driveway. This section of NJ is interesting because just a fe

  9. Overnight low for Feb 7th to 8th of 9.6F
  10. H, Frank, you are sweet, thanks for your post! Yes measuring snow sometimes has it challenges and I am grateful that WFO Mt. Holly was understanding and still wanted my measurement after I told them everything. With what seems like the long and narrow snow band that set up yesterday I suppose that these kind of reporting variations will happen. And then there is elevation and terrain.
  11. HI @frankdp23. I had some trouble yesterday with my measurements which I won't get into. I arrived at my 5.5 inches by rough measurements of my deck. I discussed this with NWS Mt. Holly and they were ok with what I did, especially since it was close to a measurement in Raritan Township. Yes, it is possible that my measurement is too low, but there is nothing I can do about it. I did notice that the snow here was lighter the last couple of hours of the event. I have taken what I hope are steps so this does not happen again. In the interest of full disclosure I have added a parenthetical acknowl
  12. February 7th, Flemington area of Hunterdon County, NJ, storm total 5.5 inches.

  14. Yes, I saw on radarscope and the NWS radar that I was literally on the edge of the mix line, for that I am grateful. In addition to the sleet, I think we may have had some rain, probably freezing for a time. I saw actual rain drops on my window and the NWS radar at the time depicted rain. Had another 1.5 inches over night for storm total snow fall (as of 7:15 AM) of 16.2 inches. Someone in Whitehouse Station reported 20.5" to the NWS.
  15. As of 9 pm on Feb 1, 14.7” in the Flemington area of Hunterdon County. Some sleet and rain for about three hours on Monday afternoon kept snow totals down in my little corner. @frankdp23, how did you make out?
