WOW what a big time snowstorm especially on the front end with unbelivebale 3-4 inch snow rates an hour and totals of 10-18 inches for most of pa. then rain and sleet most of the day and then thundersleet changing to snow between 600 and 10pm with the upper level energy. in terms of my forecast i did horrble for snowfall totals with under doing it big time but with timing and possibly saying philly could get a foot i was pretty good i did not see 18-24 inches possible as close to the cites of baltimore dc and philly as they came
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.
