I see a recent Jefferson County storm report of 7.2 inches with a band still going over the general Louisville area. Always nice to get in a consistent band..

Yeah, we lucked out with this mini-deform band at the tail end. Easily our biggest snow now in over 3 years and while yes, it's a technicality, I cannot ever recall receiving this much after the Spring equinox. Or anything close to it. Also another lesson in how these forecasts go. Just 48 hours ago, I believe we were firmly in the 1-3 inch camp with a lot of talk about rain. What rain? Sill falling now at inch per hour rates, but that won't hold up much longer.

I checked Pittsburgh's official totals...we got 1.8" yesterday and, already, 3.8" today. 5.6" storm total, and it looks far from over. Could be the biggest storm in a few years.

I'll admit, I was very skeptical about the 1"-3" they were still forecasting yesterday morning.

Nice storm up that way! Pretty unique to see easterly flow throughout the depth of the troposphere in Pittsburgh.

Honestly a bit of salt in my winter wounds though as Pittsburgh has been stealing ALL of the good storms from MBY this winter laugh.gif

I've picked up about 2" total and light/moderate snow still falling. Now that it's daytime accumulations from this intensity will be more challenging, but maybe I can squeak out a 3"-er to tie the biggest event of the season.

All model guidance is just that, guidance. It is the responsibility of the forecaster to take that information, make it better, and appropriately communicate the improved forecast to users.

We live in a day and age where the quantity of model guidance is overwhelming, particularly within 24 hours of an event. We must remind ourselves that all models are wrong, but some are more useful than others.

Healthy amount of snow for this time of year.

Cheers friend!

Thank you, sir!

What's nice is I will let the sun shovel my walk and driveway which only saw about 3/4 of an inch of accums due to warmer surface temps. The nice thing about March snows smile.gif

No doubt. I love a fresh snow, but if it sticks around more than 48 hours, especially on the roadways, it gets ugly. A wet spring snow that doesn't pile up much on driving surfaces is a thing of beauty. It'll be gone within a couple days and the birds will be singing.

Little over 3" depth here, there's a slushy layer underneath the snow.. March sun ftw.

I will say, it seems Pittsburgh has benefited from more than its share of overachievers this winter. Not that I'm complaining. You guys did seem to get the short end of stick.

Took several measurements out in the yard around 8a, before the sun really got cranking... I'd call it a solid 4" in Florence, KY.

Definitely has shrunk some since though. Roads are clear. Sidewalks are pretty clear. Snow depth is probably closer to 3" now after compaction and some underside melting.

Official totals are 8.6" today. I'm shocked. Plus 1.8" yesterday. Over 10", biggest storm in years here. Just...wow!
