Snowfall Verification for Feb 21-22

I’ve procrastinated long enough…   Overall not too shabby. The orientation and majority placement of the higher totals were generally correct, though the cut-off on the southern edge left a good amount of room for improvement. My first forecast was much better in that regard. The area of highest snowfall was off, but the idea […]

Thoughts on the Friday storm

The changeover from rain to snow and the surface temperatures will be the biggest players in inhibiting snowfall totals. The models have […]

The rain will start early tomorrow across PA and edging into northern MD as the first piece of energy pushes through. As the light/moderate rain pushes further south into northern VA, […]
