27 storms that were the earliest named of their respective letter.
13 hurricanes. 6 of them Category 3 or higher.
12 U.S. landfalls.
3 Greek names used for the first time.

Forecast is for 5 to 10 inches of snow in the Philly area Wednesday into Thursday, I haven't had to shovel in 2 years, we had no storms with more than an inch last winter.

Cold raw rain here in the Carolinas but the temperature is supposed to drop to near freezing north of my locale though we may get a mix of sleet and snow flurries before the storm moves out Thursday.

Snowing pretty good right now, already about an inch, but they seem to have downgraded the totals to 4 to 8, looks like it might turn to sleet for a while in the middle of the storm.  I'd rather have 10 inches of snow than a few inches of sleet...

It just changed over to huge flakes coming down, cotton ball size, not sure I've ever seen flakes this big before.

The high here was 38 and no mix at all, just a cold dreary rain. One more rain band will be moving through this evening then that's it.
Low could drop below freezing tonight so black-ice on the roads and bridges here is a real possibility.. :speechless:

Those cotton ball snowflakes got bigger and flatter, like potato chip flakes.

Just finished shoveling the first 6 inches off the driveway, we'll see how much more there is tomorrow morning.

It has now switched to sleet.

Wow with flakes that size, did you have any 'Thunder-snow'?

I didn't hear any thunder.  There was a period of freezing rain after the sleet, so it's a real mess out there.  At least the parts of my driveway that I shoveled are dark, so when the sun comes out tomorrow all the ice/sleet should melt pretty fast.

It was a mistake to have done any shoveling last night, what came down overnight was a solid mass bonded to the driveway this morning.  The areas I didn't shovel last night were heavy but at least could be broken free of the pavement...

Then there was the 8 inch high and 2 foot wide solid block of ice at the road, spend hours today hammering away at it so I can get out tomorrow.  At least I got the last 10 feet of driveway that slopes up towards the road down to bare pavement, the rest has a half inch of ice/sleet bonded to it but it's level so I can drive on it ok if I go slow.

I was thinking about that when you posted ..
Leaving the snow and having the sleet and ice coat over it then shovel it off would have prevented an icy glaze over the cleared off parts.

It was already too late when I thought about it last night, the forecast was for the sleet to turn back to snow, the freezing rain was what messed things up royally.  And the forecast last night said there would be more sun today, that would have helped a lot but it was mostly cloudy with the sun peeking out for short periods.

We are supposed to have full sun tomorrow.  What is still there is thin enough so the sun should be able to heat up the black pavement and melt it away, the few times the sun did come out today any areas where pavement was showing quickly improved.

It's supposed to be warm, rainy, and windy tonight.  Forecast is for a couple inches of rain and winds up to 50 mph.

Strong to severe storms moving in this afternoon here with high wind warning, and even a small chance of tornadoes before the cold air rushes in overnight.. High today in the mid-60s plummeting into the mid-20s by morning :speechless:
