Well, here in Media Delaware County we did have the trace of snow that I was calling for last night.
However in the areas that I was calling for 1.5" and following the rather weak snow band leaving the Tennessee Valley last night exploded from roughly Annapolis Maryland straight across much of Central and Southern Delaware to say just about Sea Isle City, New Jersey.
Everyone it is that time of the year now where the dynamics will be much more unpredictable with the southern zones warming further and colder air still trying to dive southbound.
What we got today was a more robust shot of colder air screaming southeast to meet up with a low that basically felt the latent heat being pulled up from the south to begin a very compact but explosive development about 50-75 miles from the coast which was plenty close enough to pound Delaware and South Jersey with some locations albeit isolated with 5-10" of snow. There were many locations that got 3-6" and it was rather amazing watching it all unfold on the Traffic Cams while Philadelphia sat with cloudy skies.
It was very January 1989 ish with Philadelphia picking up flurries the only difference with that storm was there was modest blocking in place and WildWood picked up nearly 20" of snow with 6' snowdrifts.
I will not forget that storm because the entire area including the Poconos was under a Winter Storm Warning but the only thing that happened with the skies that day was clearing from Northwest to Southeast much like today except the shore was pounded.
The End Result along Route 47 where 347 Meet.
