Snow roundup for Round 1 of the Feb 13 storm

See also

This winter storm in Maryland was an over achiever like many this winter, but it still fell in line with my forecast (played on Facebook). The snow arrived 1-2 hours early on Wednesday evening, but it came down fast and furious in the early morning hours. There were many reports of thundersnow, and radar confirmed snowfall rates between 2-4 inches per hour at times. I had cleared my deck for my dog at 8:30 am, and one hour later there was a fresh 3.5” in that path.

As of 7 am, BWI reported 12.3” of snow, which is important on two notes.

1) This confirms the Snow Prime Time I discussed the other day. This week marked the best two week period for snow in Baltimore based on history AND follows a pattern of a 10 inch + storm every 3 to 4 years.

2) This measurement ties the mark set in January 22, 1987 for #17 all time top storms.

I called for a cold and snowy winter based on many reasons, and it has been since the record early start for the local ski resorts the day after Thanksgiving.

This storm is far from done, but the purpose of this report is to document the Round 1 snow reports from area NWS spotter network: Note that some reports are old and do not include the complete snow event. Maps in the slide show include southern PA, most of Maryland and metro DC, and DE.

The NWS list from the Sterling VA office is at the bottom of this post.
