I've been reading all the hype on a cold snowy winter...can't get too excited...yet. Was wondering if anybody out there cares to pick :
A. Date of first snow in the DC area (measureable)
B. Date of first snow in the WV Alps (measurable)
C. Biggest and deepest (date)

It'll be interesting to see what folks guess at. Maybe the closest to the date could get a DC Ski pin. What about it Scott?

The Alpps could see some flurries on the 2nd of Oct with a chance trace way up high...Another shot on the 10th to the 11th..The ground will be cooler for the 2nd front...HMMmmmm ...I'll say a trace on Oct 11th..a couple of inches on Mount Porte Crayon!!

Hmm.. Am I eligible to compete? I certainly don't need any more DCSki pins. smile

I predict the first measurable snow in the D.C. area will be on November 24.

Define "DC Area." Are we talking inside the Beltway? McCounty, FxCounty, PGCounty? Frederick? Winchester?

DC area...I have no idea...Never even been there...So im gonna say Dec. 12.

WV alps...Oct 29.

Biggest and Deepest...Feb 24 CV gets over 20 inches

All of these are very scientific dates...I used the most up to date weather tracking equipment money could buy...Then i completely ignored it because the weather ppl never get it right!!!!

DC area. Let's say Dulles. It's NOAA monitored. As for the Alps, why not use Dave's local weather off the White Grass web page? It's as accurate and official as you can get in them parts.

WV Alpps -- first measurable 10/21
DC -- Dulles -- first measurable 12/6
Deepest storm -- WV Alpps -- 24 inches over a three day period around 12/15

P.S. The leaves up here have made great strides the last few days. There will be some decent color up here this weekend for the Leaf Peepers Festival.

Jeremy, part of the guesstimate is doing the research such as almanac, NOAA, wooly bears, acorns, nuts, etc..... then u guess.
I'm still counting the number of acorns per square foot and correlating that to past the year's hickory nut harvest. Almost forgot! The percentage of body fat on gray squirrels. THATS a big one you can't overlook.

- don't forget to factor in the effect of the number of Pirates on Global Average Temperature as in here:

I think we're gonna see a spike in global pirates this fall, leading to a first snow Nov 24-28 at Dulles. I'll say Nov 24 just to be gutsy. Measurable. Y'all are overdue for an early snowfall.

ahhhhh.... right Crush. Forgot about the global pirate factor. One question though. Which are more dominant, red or gray squirrels and to what extent do they influence the temperature/global pirate correlation? crazy Hey! I don't know if many remember, but back in 79, the mountains of VA and WV got a major snow on Oct 10. I'm not predicting that again, but it can happen early. My prediction will be forthcoming soon (as soon as I count the number of spiders/webs I get in my face cutting grass tomorrow). shocked

I'm guessing with extreme confidence that the valley (apps) will have first measurable October 24th; grin that Dulles will follow suit on November 29th smile and that there will be a big one for the Jack Frost Celebration on December 5th. crazy The biggest dump will occur sometime in the vicinity of February 14-20. I know that I should be more specific but the magical fruit flies are having a hard time deciding where to land on the bingo card. March in the Apps will be awesome so don't waste your $$$ going west then.

Well, The colder shot came in as expected..close but no frosty cigar. 35 to 36 at 3800' (canaan hts) With 32 up at snowshoe. there were some flakes flying around i'm sure but no big deal.

Looks like I'm the 1st one that will have to leave the DC Pin sweepstakes since my 2nd cold front for the 11th doesn't look to good sooo I'm rooting on Kris,Kwill & JonJon...one of those folks will get the "1st snow" towards the end of Oct. It always Snows up at the Davis-Valley area sometime around Halloween.

My turn - the the camping/hiking trip described in the Dolly Sods Snowing post you linked to appears to not be from this year. They set out on the 18th, yet somehow camped out on site the night of 17 October.

Colonel, I'm not sure exactly when the DS trip report was from but if scroll down a little ways you can see the MPC trip report, which was in 1975. I am assuming that all of the reports on that page are pretty old. Those old Joe Six Packs sure do type up some good reports though.....

I'm betting on a decent Thanksgiving this year..I think that the only thing that will screw it up is if by bad chance we get a little rain during the holiday period .. we could get snow & Cold before & after..its all about timing in the M/A.

Yeh SS..the moisture veered north & is now giving a little snow action to NE.
Looks like JonJon is now booted off of the "1st Snow surviver series" & Quill looks to be booted off "1st track mountain" soon..That leaves Kris with a very interesting F-cast Scenerio developing that could leave him holding the award! Looking at the latest (the one that this amature has access to) GFS model, it shows snow up in the Alpps from mon morn, continuing for a few days...Judging by the last few Teases, I'm thinking that there is something fishy about this run!

That Storm your talkin about is what will bring the western front Alpps a good cold shot & snow chance. The main storm will just bring rain..it will be the backside that brings a taste of winter to the MidAtl Highlands but once again the F-casters arn't really sure of the all important track & timing..so stay tuned!

Wow, now that you mention it, that sure is Andy.

BTW, I spent the night in a tent around 3,800 ft last night and believe me when I say that it got a little chilly. The rain and clouds cleared out by 2 pm or so yesterday and made for a beautiful day. And I have never seen the stars like I saw them last night. Simply amazing. I love Dolly Sods!

Rather than look at the daily photos, go to the video gallery and look at two videos: "Winter is Here" showing snowmaking and flurries; and "What's New At Snowshoe" showing pictures of installation of the new Cupp Run midstation and trail widening. At the 1:28 minute in the latter video there is a scene on a very crowded run, obviously during a very busy weekend. Anybody recognize the run with all the skier bodies and bumper skiers on it?

OK Andy.... I'm back. Who's got the date right or is closest? Maybe the ridges will get a foot when all is said and done. I love it when the Lake effects crank up.

It looks like Kris hit the bulls eye with his prediction. grin Now we have two dates left to predict correctly...those being the biggest in the WV Alpps and the first measurable at Dulles. smile

I'm in Oakland, MD, now at work. Only a slushy half inch on the grassy areas -- maybe an inch on elevated surfaces. Snowfall diminished quickly as I made my way down the mountain.

Have somewhere close to 4 inches on the ground at base of Snowshoe, with NWS saying we can have 10" on top of the mountain by dawn. Would be more specific, but there is also a 30 mph wind with this, and it is very nice beside the woodburner with my Goose on the rocks. 30 degrees, 6:37 PM 10/28/08

It officially snowed in Hardy Co today!!! On the way home from Winchester, at Pine Ridge outside of Wardensville, I was getting a snowshower on Corridor H. While nothing stuck and it was a shower vs a full out snow storm, it has snowed in October!!
