Sweet. I loathe virga. At the very least, with my Grlevel3 program and Allison Data feed, what the virga echos are fairly well removed so I do not throw too much of a fit. You can still tell it's virga as it never fills in over ones back yard smile.gif

Still no snow at KMDT while im here cloud deck has been falling within the last hour but definitely showing signs of virga aloft atleast. I say within the next hour we may be able to get into something of the light variety.
