snow started here around 8:45 pm (i said it would start around 9) and became accumlating snow by midnight. the snow was light to mod from 12-3 with 3.5 inches on the ground at 3:00am. then between 3-4am we saw 3 inches of snow and between 4-6 am we saw 4 inches of snow bringing the total to 9.0 inches then as precip switched over to a sleet snow and rain mix it accumlated up to 10.5 inches by 9 am then it was light showers until 5:30pm with temps in the mid 30s and winds ene gusting to 30-40mph. totals of 10-16 inches were common close to dc and baltimore and philly suburbs before the second wave came through
then by 6pm the upper level energy came into the region and created thunder sleet/rain/snow from northern va to northern jersey. 2-6 addtional inches fell from dc to philly between 7-2am. with total snow totals of 12-26 inches
i got a total of 12.0 inches, phl got 11.5, west cain, 20.5, allentown 19.6, dover 6, wilmington 12, millvile 6.5 atlantic city 3
dc got 8-16 inches close by and 14-24 north and west suburbs.
now for the forecast with temps for my weather station
friday night: increasing clouds light winds with low of 22

so a cold winter day in the delaware valley is more cold on the way? keep reading for the forecast!
first i would like to give a "this day in history" segment
on this day in 2008 record heat captured the east coast with highs of lower to mid 70s in virginia with mid and upper 60s across the delaware valley.
more crazy then that was this was day that the first of 2 storms in less then a week to bring 15+ snowstorms in 2010.
I was in dc at the time and the dc metro got pounded by 15-30 inches of snow and that 15-25 inches made it as north as trenton and philly with 23.2 inches falling at phl. south eastern pa picked up anywhere from 8-18 inches with south jersey picking up 20-30 inches with miminal mixing taking place. In arlington va we picked up 23.0 inches of snow. i will have much more on that storm next year for the 5 year!
now for the forecast:
Tonight: decreasing clouds late with temps dropping into the upper 10s and around 20 for city.
Friday. lots of sun temps not getting very warm with frezzing maybe a degree or two above for a couple hours in the afternoon. light north winds. high 34
friday night: increasing clouds light winds low 22.
Saturday: mostly cloudy with possible light snow <1 inch in most spots high 31.
Saturday night: mostly cloudy snow still possible: low 23
Sunday: mostly cloudy still cold with snow possible late high 30
Monday-wed: pc to mostly cloudy skies and windy monday with highs 28-33 and lows in the mid teens.
PS; i set up my new vantage vue weather station and each update i will give my current conditions from it.
