Quoting TrentonThunder:
Possibility exists for a 1" - 3" snowfall somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic from north of Richmond VA to the PA/NY line and west to east of that region Tuesday night / Wednesday morning. Looks like a rain to snow to rain to snow deal, especially south and east of the mountain zones. QPF is a question and exact timing will be critical regarding light accumulations of snow, but flakes mixing in at the least seems likely under the precipitation shield.

During this timeframe, an interesting surface low under increasing amplitude develops over the gulf states. This low will exit the southern Mid-Atlantic coast where it could develop into a Nor'easter for the Mid-Atlantic and New England, total timeframe being from Thursday night to Saturday morning. There is the possibility that this low will phase over Atlantic waters and travel northeastward somewhere between the coastline and benchmark. Some type of snowfall, whether it be just snow mixing in, rain to snow with accumulation, or mostly snow with moderate to heavy accumulations exists from between Richmond VA and Washington DC and up through Maine. As expected, the threat for accumulating snowfall increases as one heads north and also northwest away from the coast.

After the storm exits the region, temperatures may rebound to average April 3rd levels by Sunday.

Hey TT: Saturday is looking pretty interesting on the GFS!

Thanks for the update TT, I will take normal temps over anything we've been having for the past 2 weeks.

Thanks for the update on the weather this week, TT. It is much appreciated

I hope next week we get normal temperatures. I guess the saying for March this year is holding true.

sounds like you can't wait to get into gardening, Blizz and MG. I want some warm weather as well. I can't wait to get the gardens going. I plan on ordering my potatoes today. Hopefully, by mid April the soil temps will be 50F or higher. I haven't decided on what vegetables to grow, yet.

sounds like the hot and dry conditions stressed your blueberries. I had a few boxwoods that died on me in the fall and I am sure it is because of the stress from the summer. I guess it's part of being a gardener.

Member Since: January 26, 2007 Posts: 72 Comments: 6276
Garden talk: down here we have people who heat their greenhouses all winter. At the auction they are already selling summer squash!!! Tomato plants are growing and will be ready to plant in the garden as soon as we are past last frost. Black plastic liners are going down in the gardens to help heat up the soil! Can't wait for growing season! Blizz, will let you know how it is going!

Quoting TheRasberryPatch:


Right, I forgot you have the raised beds. We had this discussion last year about this time. ahahaha

I thought you were doing something differently this season. What kind of onions you going to grow? you planning on growing spinach? I don't recall you mentioning how your blueberries did last summer. Did you get any or did the birds find a way to get to them before you?

Yep, I am still harping on what we are going to do different this year, lol. I usually grow green and yellow onions. And yep, I am also going to grow spinach this year from the plant. When I grew it from seeds, it was a big disaster. My blueberries fared terrible last year from the birds as they got under the net. One even was trapped and ended up dying, ugh. Then mysteriously my plants and the neighbor's nextdoor blueberry bushes rapidly died towards the middle to end of the summer. Weird.

Remember I have those raised beds, so they dry out a bit quicker. It is almost April 1 and I still do not even have onion sets this year. I am running pretty late for me courtesy of the weather.

Woke up at 8:30AM and there was no snow in Germantown, MD. Based on the radar it probably flurried, but there was no accumulation on anything.

A fleeting inch. It's almost all gone now. :(

Congrats on your snow, Heavy and MDGirl! We've got a slight chance here mid-week, but it looks like not much if anything.

An inch here like doom said, but it's mostly gone already thanks to the sun and warmth of the ground. Nice MDGirl.

10 am. Still snowing lightly. About 2 inches on ground. Grass is covered.....

Boy, this system really turned into a dud when compared to the 4"-8" potential a couple days ago for you southerners.

I am surprised you turned the garden...it wasn't too wet?
I wasn't even thinking about doing that especially not getting out of the 30's

Yeah, I also noticed it a few weeks back. I believe on Crowe1's blog, someone said they "saw" Sully and his girl friend Kate posting on FaceBook, but I don't go there. I guess he's all right, just wish he would have said a quick goodbye.

Just checked back in.....we seem to be in the prime area of predicted snow! Sorry to see sullivanweather is gone, he was first to help me post a picture a few years ago, always a nice guy.
Heavy, how much snow should you get?
The cherry blossoms in DC are beautiful right now, they say the snow will not bother them, lets hope that is right.
We will see what we have in the morning......

Hey all! Lots happening while I was away. Good luck in your new house, Pittsburghnurse, and welcome home Hoy! Thanks for all the interesting info, TT!

I was talking myself into spring, but I'm always up for snow of course! Just left DC where I heard they're expecting around an inch, Heavy.


Thank you Philly. Any sign of cherry blossoms in DC?

You know I waited all winter for snow....now I am ready for spring and we are forcast 1-3"! Cherry blossoms, tulip trees and daffodils are out....OK, I am whining alittle. Bring it on, then warm up. I'm still trying to fit in that 2nd golf lesson, was to cool.

Some forecasts suggest 2-4. Trending south apparently though. :(


Bummer. Looks like that this morning as well.

Wednesday's storm looks like it could be at least partially snow here - temps look too warm to accumulate, though.

Quoting TrentonThunder:
Could see a 4"-8", west-to-east bullseye in the central and/or southern mid-atlantic. GFS favors Maryland and south central Pennsylvania, NAM favors Virginia. High peaks of West Virginia could see 10".

Heavy, you seem to be in a favorable spot to see some type of accumulating snowfall out of this on Sunday.


I'll believe it when I see it! The DC area has had too many snow near misses this winter.

Hola, all

I've heard you guys have had some crappy weather since my departure. Or good weather if you're still in the winter mood. Nothing but nice weather for the first week and a half of my trip with sun every day and temps in the 60's to around 70 in northern Spain, around 60 in Brussels, Belgium and 54 in Amsterdam. Yesterday was a bit cooler in Barcelona, but now we're in Zaragoza where it's 65 and sunny. Headed down to southern Spain on Monday, so that will be a new area for me and temps are supposed to be upper 70's to low 80's. Beach weather :)

Good luck with your spring snows, hopefully I can start planting by the 2nd or 3rd week in April. Farewell for now.

What a weird couple of days. Just got my internet back up after moving in to the new house. Saw the scariest sky I've seen since living in SW PA yesterday. It was like 9 at night at 5:30. There was a strange noise coming from the woods. We headed for the basement. Then the golf-ball sized hail came down. I've never seen hail that big. The noise was incredible. Then this morning, a coating of wet snow covered the cars and grass. I think we've seen 4 seasons in 2 days.

The tornado in Hempfield Twp classified as an EF2. There was probably another one in the area as well. So after a morning of flurries and gray, now we have sunshine and freakin' cold.

This pattern just needs to end, I'm really getting tired of it. I'm not sure if anyone is with me on this one...

Article on Accu said they expect it to be cold/wet until may! I'm really hoping that they don't know what they're talking about.

Huh?

Ummm... I put the snow shovels away and signed off the blog for the season.

Now it looks like I'm back for a late season surprise maybe?

DCA:

Saturday Night: Snow likely after 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 31. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Sunday: Snow likely, mixing with rain after 11am, then gradually ending. Cloudy, with a high near 40. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Glad you reported in P451, I hope and guess you are feeling better. I had about 1" of snow here in Stamford, I didn't like the way the radar looked last night either, saw the more important precip. was basically sliding off to my South. The sun is coming out now. All the snow was on the cars , grassy areas, and trees, none on the streets. Temp. got down to 29F, Baro. got down to 29.58".
Member Since: January 31, 2009 Posts: 0 Comments: 8010
Light snow and flurries this morning, crusty layer of frz rain-sleet-snow on car tops from overnight, probably 0.1". 31F at 8am.

Quoting originalLT:
TT if the next low is any further South, I will not get anything! I've received only 0.13" of melted precip. so far, and it doesn't look like I'll get much more. We'll see. LT Stamford CT.


Yup. We'll see, As of last night, Mount Holly doesnt like the threats, State College and model guidance does.
