Looks like our first shot at some LES could come as early as Wednesday night after a potent trough drops into the region. Strong northwesterly flow on the backside of the trough, along with some residual mid-level energy could aid in the development of some light to moderate banding to take shape over PA/NY.

 

Definitely worth paying attention to this one.

That center screen blue band is almost on top of me. Fingers crossed. Locally there is no doubt the ground will be white somewhere.

The front is passing through and we actually had what appeared to be hail. 

 

Currently in transition and setting the stage for LES event #1 this season - albeit a tiny appetizer.

It wasn’t. That was my first thought when I heard it but it really looked like hail from super high cloud tops. We do get a LOT of graupel here and I’ve even seen lake effect graupel. 

 

Band name?  Going to check out the “Lake Effect Graupel” show! ?

It’s kind of small flakes so I will wait till there may be easier to pick up on my phone.
