Remarks for the Time Period
   0      1345 hrs.   T  T  20.8  Some extremely fine light snow has started at the Glen Allen station.
   1      1445 hrs.   0.1  T  19.4  Currently light snow and a few white patches of snow on the driveway to the house. The street is still black!
   2      1545 hrs.   0.3  0.01  18.0  Light snow this past hour and evaporative cooling is occurring as the dew point is rising the temperature is falling.
   3      1645 hrs.   0.5  0.02  18.0  Light snow and now snow grains- Snow grains are the solid equivalent of drizzle.
   4      1800 hrs.   0.7  0.03  17.0  Light snow now but from radar it looks like the snowfall rate will increase over the next hour.
   5      1900 hrs.   1.5  0.11  16.5  Moderate snow now and visibility is now much reduced since the past hour.
   6      2000 hrs.   2.4  0.22  16.5  Heavy snow this past hour with 0.9 inches in the past hour and a very cold snow for Richmond!
   7      2100 hrs.   3.6  0.34  16.5  The snow is heavy now with 1.2 inches added in the past hour and the temperature has been steady now for the past 3 hours.
   8      2200 hrs.   4.3  0.43  16.4  The snow is moderate to heavy now with 0.7 inches added in the past hour. A core sample was taken just before 2200 hours and I had to add 0.01 inches to the tripping gauge that has a heater to make up for a little evaporation.
   9     2300 hrs.   4.8  0.50  16.2  Moderate snowfall rate has occurred this past hour with some larger aggregate flakes of snow mixing in near the end of this past hour.
  10      2400 hrs.   5.3  0.58  16.2  Snow is light to moderate now after moderate snow this past hour. Snowboards were cleared at midnight and much of the snow now is larger aggregate flakes..
 Feb.
17th  
   0100 hrs.   0.2  0.05  16.1  Very small snow pellets this past hour is the reason for the small accumulation with 0.05 inches of liquid. The pellets bounce off you coat almost like sleet but they are not clear ice but do contain a good bit of ice. This tape of precipitation is going to accumulate very slowly so Observations will start again later.
  12      0715 hrs.   0.9  0.22  15.6  As suspected there was not much additional accumulation after 1am as it contained much ice. Glen Allen observed only 0.7 additional snow with 0.17 inches of liquid after 1:00am. The total snowfall in the storm was 6.2 inches with 0.80 inches of water.
