Top 10 Snow Totals and Forecast

Sunny skies are prevailing right now as temps hold around freezing. Totals ranged from a foot in the northern areas (except for Chester County, where for some reason got more than everybody…) to five inches in the southern areas. I know that this storm may have been a little overhyped, but it still caused many power outages and travel problems. Anyway, here are the top 10 snow totals:

1. East Mantmeal in Chester Co. – 12.0″ (Note that east nantmeal was the # 1 snow total for the last blizzard with 26.8″)

2. East Rockhill in Bucks Co. – 11.7″

3. Perkasie in Bucks Co. – 11.7″

4. Montgomeryville in Montgomery Co. – 11.5″

5. South Coventry in Chester Co. – 11.3″

6. Exton in Chester Co- 10.1″

7. Royersford in Montgomery Co. – 10.0″

8. Chesterbrook in Chester Co. – 10.0″

9. Tabernacle in Burlington Co. – 9.9″

10. Trappe in Chester Co. – 9.8″

The Wrap Up

Well, there are sunny skies at my house right now after the storm blew through the area during the nighttime hours. Sorry I couldn’t update in the middle of the night, I was sleeping. The storm is starting to dissipate as the dry air is starting to break up the precipitation The NWS service nonetheless extended the WINTER STORM WARNING until 5:00 PM because some of the snow showers will be heavy and localized.Overall I think I did pretty well with my snow predictions for the northern areas. For the southern areas however, the storm was a bust as the low went further north as expected, therefore bringing its precipitation north.

Hopefully this will be the last storm of the season because I’m kind of getting tired of the stress before every huge blizzard that comes through the area. There is a chance of another storm Wednesday into Thursday and it is looking pretty good for 5-10 inches of snow. Right now it is pretty far out, so you never know what will happen (hopefully something light).
