  1. Snow beginning to accumulate here
  2. I've made a front end interface for the satellite images. Data is available in 3 different bands - visible imagery, water vapor, and infrared. A new image is made every 5 minutes with CONUS data. Enjoy!
  3. I'm now getting data from GOES-16 on the winter storm... no front end interface yet though but that will come soon
  4. I-95 isn't receiving max snow totals
  5. I got an inch or two, grass partially covered
  6. I'm going to have satellite loops up on this system beginning tomorrow evening
  7. There isn't much snowpack in a lot of the areas expected to be hit by ZR, at least north of Philly
  8. Not sure about ratios but I do know the p-type will be snow, I'm expecting low 20s during the event
  9. A trend north? Looks like I'm back into the firing line of the storm
  10. Just a suggestion: modeled ZR is usually too high, as the the latent heat release from freezing tends to warm up the sfc, causing a change to rain. The only way for there to be very large ice amounts is for there to be a supply of very cold air that keeps the sfc below freezing (as well as the warm layer above staying intact), or for there to be a very long duration but light precip intensity ZR event.

    this assumes the atmosphere is a sentient being
  12. Was expecting a significant snow on Saturday, looks like a repeat of November. So far no significant snow in this area since last winter

    wx apps tend to be pretty unreliable in general
  14. Trend to a little less snow for me I would attach a gif, but it's not uploading properly
