Friday February 1 2019

The clipper today arrived on schedule and in the deep freeze. So its most of the are in the teens, all that fell was able to stick. There were some locations where the snow overachieved but dumping more or arriving early.  The adjustment for the mountains is why a Winter Storm Warning was upgraded. This included Garrett And Allegheny Counties in Maryland where snow ranged from 6 to 12 inches.

The best photo was from Kevin Cuozzo at Deep Creek Lake. They got 12 inches of snow, and I think his grill was smiling.

 

Winter Weather Advisory Update:

  • NWS State College FINALLY added York and Lancaster at 2:30 until 5 PM
  • Central Maryland extended to 5 PM
  • Cecil Co and MD Eastern Shore, your NWS Office finally added you as well until 7 PM

 

Snowy Roads

Even a dusting to 2 inches can cause bog problems when it all sticks. This photo was from along the Maryland and PA (York Co) region

Locally the overachieving snow was it arriving earlier on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and southern Maryland. Not all snow reports are listed here, but this is the best I could gather as of 1 PM Friday. Note: Compare the forecast map to the totals so far.

 

Snow Reports:

Map form NWS Sterling VA Region. I added a few other reports. See the list below. First compare to the forecast map I was showing.

 

 

Forecast from my last report. Most metro areas were expecting 1 inch or less. Up to 2 inches in the northern zones.
