Sorry Oldensign…this is Dcski so i had to jump on your mojo….
The Don over at the SS threads brought up the fact that his Buddy DT at Wxrisk brought up a storm for early next week…I had been tracking it but was not ready to pull the plug and advertise it….Each run since Wxrisk prehyped it the scenerio has changed from something back to nothing and now into a kind of complicated big something..at least thats what the latest news is…who cares about how the storm evolves…Just give me the results!!!!..otay..her is what the Euro says….

Late march sledding in DC..whod a thunk it with the fireball called febuary?….Who gave up on Winter?…u know who u r…..dont be like that!!!!

Mr Fish - please come thru for SS.

I think most in the DC metero area would prever the GTFO model with Cherry Blossums blooming..

 

Personally, I’m ALWAYS up for throwing on some tele skis and pushing around the neighborhood after work under the streetlights.  Bring it down here!

Its a 2 part storm….1st one is leaving…(not really ..just a transfer of energy from an upper low inland to the coastal low..).

its kickin along.. energy on the coast gets stronger and somehow it stalls enough…WWWayyyy above my paygrade…to keep the snow in place while the cold air keeps pumping in…

Ahhhh..I remember my days as a bike courier in DC..thru Rain Sleet and Snow…make sure you lock up your Bike or you wont be able to go!…Ran into The mayor a couple of times..once while and then after he was mayor…ran into endless big names while bikeing then eventually buying a beat up toyota-mini van-Large Van-Truck….you never knew who you would run into on the streets of DC..actually almost ran over then Presidential Candidate Pat Buchannon…after he recovered from his shock I yelled out…All the way to the presidency sir!….. I remember during the Snowmageddon having to park ontop of a huge pile of plowed snow..it was huge ..I came back out after making delivery and had a fat ticket on my windshield…you needed a 4wheel drive to park on this snowdrift!….. The latest I ever remember a big snow in the DC Area was March 13….march 21/22 will be hard to pull off I would think…more popcorn and Natty Light…if it doesnt happen Ill say that Wxrisk Beache set me up!

Heavy wet 20”+/- snow approx March 20, 1958.  My senior class from Arlington, VA was going to NY; the trip by train took over 10 hours due to wires and trees on tracks.  So yes!, it can snow in late March in DC.

The storm has been toned down since the hefty snow model runs….the Nam still shows a good amount..the GFS less so we will go with the king euro…..im picking dolly sods rd 75 and Mt Porte crayon and the east Roaring plains as the WV jackspot…just far enough east of the warm wedge and high enough to get more snow out of what is available…rest is rain..then rain to snow…

8-12 possible, but low probability. Difficult storm to forecast. Good travel luck!

I bet the local roads around Harrisonburg are a mess.  Very few people at Massanutten looking at the webcam.  A few instructors showed up for line up though.  I-81 looks wet with traffic flowing though.

Wonder if anyone will try getting onto Wintergreen slopes since they are closed for the season.

My brother only got about 4 inches at his house in DC.  Apparently wet and heavy.  He decided to shovel since it was supposed to freeze overnight.  It’s already 35 as of 8am so most roads should be okay soon.  Good thing for my friends who are flying to SLC on Friday for a spring break trip to Alta.

Snowshoe is reporting a 48 hour total of 14 inches. Cheat mountain magic!
