  2. Its a 40N Winter, that's for sure... La Nina, how I loathe thee. Oak Hill VA 12/16 - 2.4 12/18 - 0.2 1/25 - 0.2 1/31 - 2.6 2/1 - 1.6 2/2 - 0.5 2/3 - 0.2 2/7 - 2.3 2/10 - 0.5 2/13 - 0.4 2/18 - 0.9 Total - 11.8 Ewing NJ 12/16 - 4.5 12/17 - 0.9 1/31 - 3.6 2/1 - 3.4 2/2 - 3.0 2/3 - 0.3 2/7 - 4.9 2/10 - 0.8 2/11 - 2.6 2/18 - 5.6 2/19 - 1.0 Total - 30.6
  3. I am literally just seeing this now. Sorry about your diagnosis, but very happy to hear you've been enjoying my YouTube postings!
  4. 3.4" in Ewing. Certainly more than I expected before looking at yesterday's guidance. Here in NoVA we got 0.5", which is less than I expected before looking at yesterday's guidance. This is your winter, guys. We're getting ripped off repeatedly down here in DC.
  5. Ewing is up to 4.9" but I think that may be the best they can do, starting to compact.
  6. I can explain the differences in the snow measuring guidelines: Back in 2012, a group of climatologists worked with NWS to revise the 6-hour guidelines. Dr. Robinson, the NJ State Climatologist, was one of them. They argued strongly that the 6-hour method artificially inflated snowfall at volunteer stations which traditionally did not do them routinely until the 90s/aughts, when the 6-hour guidelines became more widely known/distributed/pushed. Thus, NWS HQ rewrote the guidelines and officially rescinded the use of 6-hour measurements except for climate stations paid for by NWS (
  7. Ended up with 10" in Ewing. Liquid 1.62". Imagine if that was all snow and didn't include an inch or two of sleet.
  8. 7.0" in Ewing. Far far less than I figured there'd be by now. Eh.
  9. Just past 6" in Ewing. Little dry slot sitting nearby has not helped them.
  10. Finally snow and passing 5" in Ewing.
  11. Actually there's a very sensible explanation. The lower clouds are in the cold layer, so the very light precip coming out of those is crystalized. The heavier precip originates higher up and has to go through the warm layer, thus... sleet
