Good morning, everyone.

3:00 report

30.6F- winds calm

ZR is accreting on most every surface including roads. Soundings via RAP suggest this linger until around 9 before changing to an all cold rain scenario

In case anyone had any doubts as to what would fall this a.m. - I found it slightly amusing that CTP uses the word "definite" in their P&C - I've never seen that before...

Overnight

Definite Freezing Rain Chance for Measurable Precipitation 80%

Definite
Freezing Rain


Low: 29 F

CTP finally starting to get confident enough to put out accumulations for my zones with the changeover expected tonight and tomorrow

Tuesday Night
QUOTE
Rain and snow likely, becoming all snow after 1am. Cloudy, with a low around 31. Blustery, with a northwest wind 17 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.


which fits my forecasted results rather nicely I must say

I haven't been too much in model land this morning - so don't think there were any important changes on that front. If there were I will be sure to mention them.

Be safe all - here's to hoping the power stays on throughout.

Out for a jaunt in this ZR - it has slackened a bit - too dark to measure any accretion just yet, did not take headlamp out with me. Primarily icy only on non-road surfaces. If my road is not affected, then I would think most in the area are only wet as well and problems with the a.m. commute should be reduced significantly.

Strong easterly fetch bringing in the H7-H8.5 moisture. The source region PWAT of 1.4 is available for tapping due east of the Delmarva

3Hr pressure changes - notice how the areas off the coast have become largely homogenized - indicative of its future "hanging out" in that general region. Keeping an eye on the HP over the GL's.

PROBABILISTIC HEAVY SNOW AND ICING DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
253 AM EST TUE DEC 09 2014

VALID 12Z TUE DEC 09 2014 - 12Z FRI DEC 12 2014


DAYS 1 THROUGH 3...


...MID ATLANTIC/NORTHEAST...

WHILE THERE IS STILL SOME MODEL SPREAD CONCERNING THE TRACK OF THE
SURFACE LOW AND THE THERMAL FIELDS SHAPED BY THE TRACK OF THE
LOW...THERE IS INCREASING CONFIDENCE FOR A HIGH
IMPACT...ULTIMATELY ELEVATION DEPENDENT SNOW AND ICE EVENT FOR
PORTIONS OF THE NORTHEAST ON DAYS 1 AND 2. THE ECMWF HAS BEEN THE
MOST CONSISTENT WITH THE TRACK OF THE SURFACE AND MID LEVEL
SYSTEMS...AS WELL AS THE THERMAL FIELDS FROM THE MID ATLANTIC INTO
NEW ENGLAND. THE QPF PORTION OF THE FORECAST WAS BASED ON THE
LATEST WPC QPF...WHILE THE THERMAL PORTION OF THE FORECAST WAS
BASED ON A BLEND OF THE 00Z NAM/GFS/12Z ECMWF.

MOISTURE IS STREAMING NORTHWARD EARLY THIS MORNING AHEAD OF A
SHORT WAVE TURNING THE CORNER ACROSS THE LOWER OH VALLEY. THE 00Z
UPPER AIR ANALYSIS SHOWED COLD AIR DAMMING UP THROUGH 850
MB...RESULTING IN DRY AIR IN THE MID LEVELS. THE DRY AIR IS
ALLOWING THE NORTHERN EDGE OF THE INITIAL MOISTURE SURGE TO
PRODUCE LIGHT SNOW...WITH LIGHT FREEZING RAIN IN COLD AIR DAMMING
ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE INTERIOR MID ATLANTIC. THE STRONG
ISENTROPIC LIFT AHEAD OF THE SHORT WAVE TRANSPORTS LARGE AMOUNTS
OF MOISTURE NORTH ACROSS THE MID ATLANTIC INTO NEW ENGLAND THROUGH
10/00Z. THE STRONG INFLOW AHEAD OF THE SHORT WAVE MEANS THAT THE
LOW LEVEL COLD AIR ERODES QUICKLY NEAR THE COASTAL PLAIN...WITH
THE METRO AREAS NEAR THE COAST RECEIVING RAIN. THE BEST VERTICAL
MOTION IN THE STRONG ISENTROPIC LIFT AFFECTS THE MID ATLANTIC INTO
NJ/LONG ISLAND THIS MORNING...BEFORE CROSSING NEW ENGLAND DURING
THE SECOND HALF OF THE DAY. THE STRONG LIFT IS OFFSET BY THE
BOUNDARY LAYER WARMING ACROSS PORTIONS OF COASTAL NORTHERN NEW
ENGLAND...WHERE SNOWFALL AMOUNTS SHOULD REMAIN BELOW 4 INCHES.

HOWEVER...THE COLD AIR DAMMING ALONG THE SPINE OF THE APPALACHIANS
FROM NORTHEAST PA ACROSS THE MID HUDSON VALLEY OF NY INTO NORTHERN
AND CENTRAL NEW ENGLAND SETS THE STAGE FOR HEAVY ELEVATION
SNOWS...MOSTLY DURING DAY 1. THE BEST MOISTURE AND LIFT FEED INTO
A DEVELOPING DEFORMATION ZONE STRETCHING FROM NORTHEAST PA ACROSS
THE MID HUDSON VALLEY NY INTO NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND. IN THIS
ZONE...MODEL SOUNDINGS SHOWED THAT THE COLUMN BECOMES ISOTHERMAL
BELOW THE FREEZING MARK...AND LIFT IN THE DENDRITIC GROWTH ZONE.
THE MOST INTENSE SNOWFALL (WHICH COULD EXCEED AN INCH AN HOUR) IS
EXPECTED FROM 09/18Z THROUGH 10/06Z (FROM SOUTHWEST TO
NORTHEAST)...AND LOCAL 12 INCH SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE ANTICIPATED
ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN TIER OF NY...THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF
VT AND THE MOUNTAINS OF WESTERN ME.

THE AMOUNTS DROP OFF WITH THE TERRAIN...WITH A RELATIVE MINIMUM
ACROSS THE LOWER INTO MID HUDSON VALLEY NY...WHERE THE LOW LEVEL
SOUTHEAST FLOW RESULTS IN BOUNDARY LAYER ISSUES. AS THE BEST
ISENTROPIC LIFT/DEFORMATION ZONE LIFT MOVES NORTH...THE COLUMN
LOSES ITS ABILITY TO MAKE SNOWFLAKES (DUE TO THE PASSAGE OF A MID
LEVEL DRY SLOT). A LIGHT GLAZE OF ICE IS EXPECTED OVER THE AREAS
WITH THE HEAVIEST SNOW DURING THE LAST PORTION OF DAY 1. AS THE
SURFACE LOW TRACKS INTO CENTRAL NEW ENGLAND ON DAY 2...SLIGHTLY
WARMER/DRIER AIR CROSSES NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND...AND EVEN HERE THE
COLUMN LOSES ITS ABILITY TO MAKE SNOWFLAKES. THE NET RESULT IS
LIGHT FREEZING RAIN STRETCHING FROM NORTHEAST NY STATE INTO
VT...NORTHERN NH AND NORTHERN AND WESTERN ME...WITH LOCAL 0.10
INCH ICE ACCUMULATIONS EXPECTED.

THE NEXT SLUG OF MOISTURE AND LIFT ASSOCIATED WITH THE CLOSED MID
LEVEL SYSTEM CROSSES NY STATE DURING DAY 2...MAINLY BETWEEN 10/18Z
AND 11/03Z. COLDER AIR ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE MID LEVEL SYSTEM
ALLOWS THE COLUMN TO COOL BACK BELOW FREEZING. THE LIFT AND
MOISTURE SUPPORT A LARGE AREA OF 6 TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW STRETCHING
FROM NEAR KSYR THROUGH MUCH OF CENTRAL AND EASTERN NY STATE. THESE
AMOUNTS ARE WELL SUPPORTED BY MEMBERS OF THE LATEST ECMWF ENSEMBLE
OUTPUT.

THE LAST SIGNIFICANT SLUG OF MOISTURE AND LIFT ASSOCIATED WITH THE
MID LEVEL SYSTEM AND ITS SURFACE LOW OVER NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND
OCCURS ON DAY 3. THE BEST LIFT/MOISTURE CROSS EASTERN NY STATE
INTO SOUTHERN VT...CENTRAL NH AND WESTERN ME. THE COLUMN SHOULD BE
SUFFICIENTLY COOL HERE FOR MUCH OF THE PRECIPITATION TO FALL IN
THE FORM OF SNOW...SUPPORTING 3 TO 6 INCHES OF SNOWFALL ACROSS
THIS AXIS.

Skipped the snow stage in Albany and went straight to freezing drizzle. Everything is coated in a thin layer of ice.

Not surprising that this is the case as 850 hPa temps are hovering just below freezing. Critical thicknesses are already nearing from the south. Regarding the frontogenesis banding later today...the whole dynamic cooling situation is a nightmare to forecast, but I'm starting to have my doubts it will be enough to overcome a relatively deep layer of +1C. I may be wrong on this but I wouldn't be surprised if Albany goes through the whole day without any accumulations (flakes could still be possible before the layer warms up entirely).

EDIT: Looks like the NWS is trending (again) to the idea of lower accumulations in the Hudson Valley... NWS Albany lowered to an advisory here with 2-4" of snow, and WPC slashed the upper Hudson Valley from >70% of 4" to >10%.

A little bit of something fell out there before I got up. Almost looks like finely crushed sleet. Might be freezing drizzle. Temp is an even 30.

6z GFS shifts the precip just a bit west in the PA regions - throws more towards the Susq Rvr Valley - otherwise, it is much the same as the 0z output (only out to Hr60 so far on IWM)

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
A WELL-DEFINED UPPER SHORTWAVE DIGGING SE ACROSS INDIANA EARLY
THIS MORNING WILL CONTINUE TO AMPLIFY THE ERN U.S. TROUGH OVER
THE NEXT 24-36 HOURS...AND FORM SLOW-MOVING CLOSED LOW ACROSS THE
MID ATLANTIC PIEDMONT TONIGHT.

AS THIS ENERGY ALOFT IS INJECTED INTO THE SFC LOW /DEVELOPING
JUST SE OF THE OUTER BANKS/...IT WILL INTENSIFY AS IT MOVES
SLOWLY NORTH AND HELP TO EXPAND AND CONSOLIDATE THE AREAS OF MIXED
PRECIP WE CURRENTLY SEE ON REGION 88DS ACROSS THE MID ATLANTIC AND
DELMARVA REGION.

VERTICAL THERMAL PROFILES ARE VERY MARGINAL FOR SNOW ACROSS THE
SCENT MTNS AND MIDDLE SUSQ VALLEY THROUGH THE MID MORNING HOURS
TODAY...WHILE WARMER PROFILES ACROSS THE SE ZONES SUPPORT ALL
LIQUID.

UNFORTUNATELY...TEMPS NEAR THE GROUND ARE A FEW DEG F BELOW
FREEZING /AND WILL STAY THAT WAY UNTIL ABOUT 13-15Z TODAY/...WHICH
MEANS A LIGHT GLAZING OF DANGEROUS FREEZING RAIN. THIS WILL
GREATLY IMPACT THE MORNING COMMUTE TO WORK AND SCHOOL...WITH
UNTREATED SFCS ICY AND TREACHEROUS. THE THREAT FOR A LIGHT COATING
OF FZRA EXTENDS FURTHER NORTH AND EAST ACROSS THE MIDDLE SUSQ
VALLEY AND ECENT MTNS...THOUGH JUST ABOUT ANY FORM OF FREEZING OR
FROZEN PRECIP CAN OCCUR FROM KSEG TO KIPT AND KAVP THIS MORNING.

AS LARGE SCALE LIFT BROADENS AND DEEPENS IN RESPONSE TO ENHANCED
UPPER DIFFLUENCE AND COOLING ALOFT JUST AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING
UPPER TROUGH...WE SHOULD SEE PRECIP RATES INCREASE ACROSS THE EAST
AND ADD ENOUGH LAYER COOLING TO CREATE PERIODS OF MDT TO HVY WET
SNOW ACROSS THE ELEVATIONS AOA 1300 FT MSL. RAIN WILL BE MIXING
IN WITH THE BIG...SLOPPY SNOW FLAKES THROUGHOUT THE DEEPER
VALLEYS...HOLDING DOWN SNOW ACCUMS BY 50 PERCENT OR MORE COMPARED
TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS.

COLD CONVEYOR NORTH AND WEST OF THE SFC LOW GETS CRANKING LATER
THIS AFTERNOON AND THIS EVENING ACROSS THE WESTERN POCONOS AND
ENDLESS MTNS OF PENN AND COULD EXTEND BACK INTO PORTIONS OF THE
SUSQ VALLEY AND CENTRAL MTNS...WITH MEAN LLVL TRAJECTORIES
ORIGINATING OVER LAND ACROSS SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND...HELPING TO
COOL THE BOUNDARY LAYER AND CHANGE THE PRIMARY PRECIP TYPE BACK TO
SNOW,

THE WINTER STORM WATCH ACROSS OUR FAR E AND NE ZONES...HAS
TRANSITIONED TO A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR THE HIGHER TERRAIN
ACROSS SULLIVAN AND SCHUYLKILL COUNTIES...AND A WINTER WEATHER
ADVISORY ACROSS THE COUNTIES BORDERING JUST TO THE WEST OF THE
WARNING. BOTH FLAGS EXTEND THROUGH 17Z WED.

6-10 INCHES OF SNOW CAN BE EXPECTED ACROSS THE WARNING AREA BY
12Z WED...WHILE A FEW TO SVRL INCHES ARE EXPECTED IN THE VALLEYS.

ELSEWHERE...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL 18Z
TODAY FROM THE CENTRAL MTNS TO THE LOWER SUSQ VALLEY TO ACCOUNT
FOR THIS MORNING/S GENERALLY LIGHT AMOUNTS OF FREEZING/FROZEN
PRECIP. AFTER 18Z...AREAS OF MIXED LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW WILL OCCUR
ACROSS THE CENTRAL ZONES AS THE 950-900 MB LAYER WARMS UP TO JUST
ABOVE FREEZING.

TEMPS EARLY TODAY WILL RANGE FROM THE U20S OVR THE ALLEGHENY
MTNS...TO PERHAPS JUST ABV FREEZING OVR PORTIONS OF YORK AND
LANCASTER COUNTIES.

TEMPS WILL WARM VERY SLOWLY TODAY AND REACH AN AFTERNOON HIGH
IN THE MID TO UPPER 30S. READINGS WILL LIKELY STAY AOA 34F FOR
HIGHS ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE EAST WHERE PRECIP RATES
WILL BE THE GREATEST.

21 with a dew point of 0

Very light, fine snow just began falling. I'll enjoy it while it lasts. smile.gif
WWA for me, 2-5 with a glazing, and then rain that adds to the 5" glacier covering everything already.

PRESSURE CONTINUES TO DEVELOP OFF THE MID ATLANTIC COAST EARLY
THIS MORNING. AS IT DOES SO...IT WILL MOVE NORTHWARD TOWARD
SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. WEAK ASCENT WITH A DEVELOPING COASTAL FRONT
AND INCREASING MOISTURE JUST ABOVE THE BOUNDARY LAYER IS AIDING IN
THE DEVELOPING OF LIGHT SNOW AND/OR FREEZING DRIZZLE THIS MORNING.
FOR THIS REASON WE ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR THE
IMMEDIATE COAST SOUTHWESTWARD INTO HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY NH. THIS
WILL RUN UNTIL NOON WHEN TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO WARM UP
ABOVE FREEZING
. UNTIL THEN...EXPECT SEVERAL POCKETS OF SLIPPERY
TRAVEL FOR THE MORNING COMMUTE.

FORCING FOR ASCENT WILL INCREASE MARKEDLY FROM SOUTH TO NORTH LATE
THIS MORNING AND EARLY AFTERNOON. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF HEAVY PRECIPITATION. THIS PRECIPITATION ON THE
IMMEDIATE COAST SHOULD BE IN THE FORM OF HEAVY RAIN THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING. THE FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT.

FURTHER INLAND ON THE COASTAL PLAIN AND ACROSS INTERIOR SOUTHERN
NH...THE COLD AIR WEDGE AT THE SURFACE WILL BE SLOWER TO ERODE. WE
THEREFORE EXPECT A PERIOD OF HEAVY SNOW OR MIXED PRECIPITATION
WELL INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS. A STRIPE OF FREEZING RAIN MAY OCCUR
WHERE TEMPERATURES HOVER JUST BELOW FREEZING. THESE AREAS LOOK TO
GO TO ALL RAIN AS WELL LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND THROUGH THE
EVENING HOURS. THE FLOOD WATCH REMAINS UP FOR THESE AREAS AS WELL
FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOODING AFTER THE
CHANGEOVER. TRANSITION TIMES IN THIS ADVISORY AREA ARE STILL
SUBJECT TO CHANGE SINCE THE LINE BETWEEN RAIN AND FROZEN/FREEZING
PRECIPITATION IS QUITE THIN IN THE COLUMN BASED ON THE LATEST
FORECAST SOUNDINGS. A PORTION OF THE ADVISORY AREA MAY NEED AN
UPGRADE TO A WINTER STORM WARNING IF THE COLD AIR LINGERS LONGER.
SOME POWER OUTAGES WILL BE POSSIBLE DUE TO THE COMBINATION OF
HEAVY WET SNOW AND FREEZING RAIN. SNOW AMOUNTS IN THIS AREA SHOULD
BE MAINLY 2 TO 5 INCHES.


FURTHER INLAND IN THE MOUNTAINS...SNOW WILL BE THE PRIMARY
PRECIPITATION TYPE ALONG WITH SOME MIXING WITH SLEET AND FREEZING
RAIN AT TIMES. THE SNOW WILL BE OF THE HEAVY WET VARIETY BY EARLY
EVENING AND COULD MEAN A POWER OUTAGE ISSUE.

WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO GUST AROUND 50 MPH ON THE COAST LATE THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS MAY LEAD TO POWER OUTAGES. THE WIND
ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT.

&&

.SHORT TERM /TONIGHT/...
THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO BE THIS EVENING. AFTER
MIDNIGHT...IT WILL TAPER OFF IN THE DRY SLOT. TEMPERATURES ARE
NOT EXPECTED TO DROP OVERNIGHT...IN FACT THEY MAY WARM UP IN
SPOTS
. THEREFORE...AREAS THAT GET ABOVE FREEZING THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING PROBABLY WON/T REFREEZE OVERNIGHT.

&&

.LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
SINCE LAST EVENING MODEL GUIDANCE HAS COME INTO BETTER AGREEMENT
REGARDING A SECONDARY SURGE IN PCPN WED. SFC HIGH PRES WILL TRY
AGAIN TO BUILD INTO QUEBEC...WHILE HEIGHTS ALOFT RISE OVER THE
SAME AREA. MEANWHILE...UPPER LOW PRES INVOF LONG ISLAND
DEEPENS FURTHER. THIS WILL ACT TO INCREASE ELY FLOW THROUGHOUT
THE ATMOSPHERE. IN FACT THE NAEFS GUIDANCE IS IN EXCESS OF -4 SD
NEGATIVE U /ELY/ WIND ANOMALIES. THIS FOR THE MOST PART IS FOCUSED
OVER MUCH OF ME...WITH A FAIR ELY UPSLOPE PCPN SIGNAL SUGGESTED BY
WED EVENING. BY THIS TIME THE OVERALL ATMOSPHERE WILL BE WARMER
THAN TODAY...SO THE MAJORITY OF THE COAST AND INTERIOR WILL SEE
RNFL.
IN THE MTNS AND NWD...LOW LEVEL COLD AIR IS FORECAST TO
STUBBORNLY HANG TOUGH. FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW A STRONG FREEZING
RAIN SIGNAL FOR PLACES LIKE JACKMAN AND RANGELEY
. HAVE INCREASED
ICE AMOUNTS TO BETWEEN A TENTH AND A QUARTER OF AN INCH FOR THESE
PLACES...IN ADDITION TO SOME LIGHT TO MODERATE SNWFL AMOUNTS.

UPPER LOW PRES MEANDERS OVER NEW ENGLAND THRU THE REST OF THE
WEEK. HARD TO FOCUS POP HOWEVER...AS RA AND SN SHOWERS WILL BE
SCATTERED IN NATURE AND DRIVEN BY INSTABILITY ALOFT. AT LEAST
CHANCE POP IS WARRANTED INTO FRI. A MUTLI-MODEL CONSENSUS PROVIDED
A FAIR REPRESENTATION OF THIS.

I think that I'll dodge the worst of the ZR, however every CAD event I seem to hover just below 33, I'm more concerned for areas to my north and west, like mightysween and kpk33x.

Some crunch in the glaze of ice outside. Too bad, was hoping to wake up to at least a little white, even if it was a lot of sleet.
