Thankfully the ice threat never materialized in southern locations overnight. Much warmer air overtook the area as the storm system passed to our west and we were on the “warm” side of the storm.
When warmer air hits the cold snow pack, it common to make fog as is seen in many areas this morning
Ice? I did not see nay in Stewartsville area overnight as the temperature was just above freezing all night. Anyone get ice? If so please let me know in the comments
As shown on the above map, overnight low temperatures. I’m sure many of these were recorded just after midnight
And then there’s the rain. Many areas received at least 3/4″ of an inch and some more. This should put a nice dent in the snowpack. But don’t worry snow lovers – reinforcements are on the way!
Speaking of snow, our next parade of storms will arrive on Thursday. At this point this storm appears to be somewhat colder and snowier than the last storm. Look for snow to arrive Thursday morning and last a good part of the day. The snow looks to be plowable and be in the 4-8″ range – more to the north and less to the south.
Warmer air looks to arrive thursday night and change many areas (especially south) to a wintry mix of first sleet and then possibly freezing rain.
We’ll keep an eye on this and update accordingly.
Some good news? After this storm the atmosphere looks to “take a break” for a little while so expect some calmer and seasonable conditions. But remember: it’s still winter and still February!

OK I know that’s a strange title. But as a photographer, its difficult for me to blog about this because I don’t have photographic evidence.
It was a cold morning (10 degrees!). As I greeted my rental car, it had a nice wintertime display on all the windows courtesy of Jack Frost.
OK here’s the hard part. As I started driving, I noticed one of the frosty snowflakes on the windshield started spinning! I can assure you I was awake and not hallucinating! As I picked up speed, the spinning flake flew off the windshield. It was so young!
As I drove across PA and into Ohio, below are some of the images from the road showing the recent snow and ice that was on the roadside trees.
Frequent blog readers will recognize I posted a large pile of early season snow at our local mall back on November 7th. That was 9 days after the freak October snowstorm which dumped 8” of snow to the area.
This picture to the left is what’s left of the same pile. This is over 2 weeks ago! I think the snow being so wet had a lot to do with how long it lasted.
Out local mall is famous for making piles of snow big enough to block out the sun. So here 9 days after the unusual October snowstorm, here is one of the larger piles. I included my car to show the scale.
I’ve seen this one from the highway last week and it was so high you wanted to plant a flag on the top!
I had the pleasure of going to see “Avenue Q” last night at the State Theatre. The trip there was accompanied by rain, then sleet and snow and a thunderstorm! On the way out we were greeted by snow and a slushy accumulation on the sidewalks.
This pile of snow and ice was large enough to not only block out the stores behind it but the trees as well. In fact it turned into a mini ski slope. OK maybe that didn’t happen but this is what’s left of the pile after several heavy spring rains and warmer temperatures.
