Snow reports for January 2-3 storm already more than last winter

See also

The coldest air for many in decades is in place now. That would be a story in itself as day temperatures will stay in the teens and lows tonight will approach zero in central Maryland. Perhaps even below zero without the wind just north of Baltimore. So this snow isn’t going anywhere! This arctic air was welcomed in by a white carpet from our largest snowstorm in 3 years. BWI reported 4.2”, the most since January 26, 2011 when we had 7.6” of snow.

That might not seem like much, but since the 3 blizzards in the 2009-2010 winter, snow has been scarce for us in the Mid Atlantic. Our average is 20.1 inches. This year we are on our way with a current total of 8.5 inches. That is already more than last winter when we only had 8 inches the entire season. The winter before ending in 2012 was one of our lowest with 1.8 inches.

See My Winter 2013-2014 Outlook calling for above normal snow.

Grade My Forecast:

I have tracked this storm for the better part of a week on my Facebook page, and highlighted errors in the computer models along the way. The purpose of this article is to share the snow reports in our region. You can compare them to my snow forecast and I welcome you to grade my performance. Please go to the post for this article on my Facebook Page and share it there.

You can see local area snow report maps along with my snow map in the slide show. I’ve included maps for areas in Maryland, southern PA, Metro Philidelphia, central NJ, and even the big winners near Boston. Please note that these are from trained observers for the National Weather Service. You may have a different measurement in your yard, and that is common. Snow can vary an inch or so across town, but wind driven snow can pile up even more.

The list by counties can be found at the bottom of this post.
