What a crazy week. From signals to the major globals abandoning ship. To the entry, exit and re-entry and exit again of the dreaded warm nose (shudders). To the weenie maps and the freak outs when 1 run of 1 op model drops the storm. The lead up to the storm is sometimes 80% of the fun. This community sure is great. The over analyzations and constant opinions is what makes weather so exciting.

Congrats to everyone who saw snow. It was only two weeks ago when a lot of us thought we would shoot a blank this winter.

On to Spring, or on to the next signal? See you all on the next thread.


Godspeed and good day!

Right about 2", maybe a tad below that. Ground temps actually we're an issue for me. Anywhere where the grass was thin and bare soil exposed, there is no snow.

Oh, and those little flakes sure did stick to the trees nicely.

There are lots of peculiar, interesting mesoscale details w/ the snow accumulations from this storm.
Agreed... in fact I was concerned my measurements would seem "suspicious" haha, but I did it twice all over this morning. Not really sure why this exact spot is an inch higher than others

Hoping to get a few pics uploaded. On the pic of the bumper of my truck notice the bottom layer of snow and see if you can tell how much compaction occured.

I measured 4 inches here in Elizabeth City outside the hotel around 4 am this morning
Oh cool!! I know that we had more when I went to bed. Look like it compacted pretty good here at my place. I’m really glad you got to see a good snowfall. The plus is the roads are clear after 4”!! When are planning on heading out?

The amount of accumulation I had between the time I left to take my wife at 9:15 until 10:20 was impressive. I think it fooled me because the flakes were not big but it was like a flizzard on steroids. Those tiny flakes really piled up fast. Only thing I can come up with is that the 850s were crashing and our ratios went from 6:1 to the usual 10:1?
