Having just discovered this forum , I'm probably screwing up by posting here , but anyway.....
I was born in Oil City and lived there ( actually out in the country ) until age 14 when we moved to Florida . I remain somewhat interested in the Western Pa weather tho . I kept detailed weather records as a kid and still have them . These were from the 1950's . I remember the anticipation of waiting for a snow storm . Of course in those days , we weren't bombarded with weather media as today and some of the storms came as a total surprise to me.
I do remember long periods of snow cover , and having found this forum I will dig out my records soon and verify my now 50+ year old memories .
I was able to go to Pirates games at Forbes Field and made one game at Three Rivers in the 70's , and hope to get to PNC one warm summer day soon !

I only wonder will this storm bring us more FR or sleet. Not sure if it really matters, but then again it does. The FR I think acts like glue and just sticks to everything.

What do you all think, rain or ice.

We did get some freezing rain overnight here (40 miles west of Pitt). There are alot of school closings and delays and it is still below freezing for now. We might see a little snow, maybe an inch, this afternoon.

to get another blizzard would be wild, i remember the march 1993 blizzard, i was in 10th grade, and at a science competition, it was only the second time i remember seeing over a foot of snow, the first was dec 92 ( its tough walking straight uphill from school in 10" of heavy wet snow)

it was the start of that great run of snowy winters : 1992-1996, 3 out of those 4 years we had over 70" of snow, never before or since have we seen that kind of run.
i think off hand pgh only had mabey 2 or 3 years of over 70" since records had been kept

What up with these flood watches in Feb mad.gif Feels more like spring around here. Heard in the forecast that there may be some snow here tommorow as the temps fall? any confirmation?

How about the weekend when the cold air arrives? any luck? Man how I want just a good ole snow dump before this winter is done.....
