February 24-25th 2011 Winter Storm

Low pressure, tracking from Arkansas the evening of the 24th, to southwestern Pennsylvania the morning of the 25th, brought a large area of snow to the forecast area. The snow was slow to start as dry air remained in place across much of the area, keeping much of the forecasted amounts from being realized. However, once the snow did develop, several bands of moderate to locally heavy snow formed with snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour. The snow quickly ended by mid morning of the 25th. Images before show the Surface Low Maps, select radar images and observations and the 24 hour total for snowfall (Thanks to all that sent in reports).
