Marlton, Medford, Vincentown - all recorded 2.5 and that was as of 10:45 last night - no other reports came in beyond that stat. Ft. Dix had 3.0 and Mt. Laurel 2.1. Tabernacle had 1.9 at the state police HQ, but did have 1.0 just outside of the twp line.
Keep in mind that there was compacting - this was a heavy, wet snow.
I have serious reservations about that "trained spotter" who reports 3" in Carbon County (Lake Harmony). That area was too far north to get 3". Yet Albrightsville, which was CLOSER to the precip, received just 1.5". I hope they give these"trained" spotters breathalyzer and/or drug testing.
OK, here's my theory. Ocean water temps are above-average right now. Perhaps the water temps in the Schuylkill and Delaware are also warm enough to keep the air temps just above freezing in CC during these recent storms? I propose this because of the huge disparity we saw last weekend during the storm in places like Central Park vs. Brooklyn, and various parts of Long Island, Connecticut, and Rhode Island: just a few miles nearer the ocean resulted a a huge difference in accumulated snowfall.
Center City: zero! This is getting weird. We keep getting over-forecasted here in CC by just about everyone (TV mets and bloggers) and everything (the models). Didn't know Center City had become a "heat island" in the winter, too!
Didn't think I would get this much, but just measured on my lawn, 3 1/2 inches, still snowing heavily, I must be in that heavy snow band ,, I am here in ROXBOROUGH section of philly which is considered the NORTHWEST PART OF THE CITY SO OFFICIAL TOTAL IS 3 1/2" Blog started by Wales , on 11 minutes ago Replies
