Did you perhaps here any loud explosions that shook the ground, or perhaps a mushroom cloud in the distance??

Well sir, it is 32 now at almost 6 pm.

Today, winds of 25 mph and gusts to 40.

There was a half-dusting on the ground but the wind literally blew it all away like dandruff.

Let us remember this is a Leap Year and the normal 28 days have passed with nothing measurable in stations from DCA to PVD.  ABE is definitely at risk for something more than T today and according to HRRR PHL is too.  But I still feel good that somehow these stations will be missed.

...SNOW SHOWERS AND SNOW SQUALLS EXPECTED THROUGH THIS
AFTERNOON...

Snow showers and snow squalls are expected across the area
through this afternoon. A snow squall has been moving southward
across southern New York and northern Pennsylvania producing up to
a half inch of snow and visibility as low as one quarter mile at
times. Visibilities will drop quickly to one mile or less in
heaviest snowfall. Winds may gust up to 40 mph at times. Snow
accumulations are expected to remain below one inch.

Drivers are urged to use extra caution if you must travel this
afternoon. Rapid changes in visibility and potentially slick
roads are likely to lead to accidents. Slow down and allow extra
time when traveling.

A T of snow was recorded at both JFK & LGA airports last hour. That means Feb 2020 does NOT go down as snowless for those airports. That extra day of winter (leap day) came in handy!

Central Park, EWR, & BDR already recorded a trace of snow earlier this month. ISP is still 0.

The most improbable has occurred.  No measurable snowfall in the month of February during a Leap Year to boot in many locations shown below.  Many of these locations @ Route 80 and below have peak snowfall during the month of February.  

FYI.  A T is not measurable snowfall.  It's observed to be falling but not enough to measure, so every day of the month can have T, but still not register as any accumulations.  

The closest analog to this was February 1998, but Dulles and Providence had measurable snowfall that month.  The scope of this is unprecedented and you most likely won't have this collection of stations report no measurable snowfall again during February in the next 100 years.


ABE (Allentown PA) - T Normal February snowfall ~ 11.1"
DCA - T Normal February snowfall ~ 5.7"
BWI (Baltimore, MD) - 0 Normal February snowfall ~ 8.0"
IAD (Dulles MD) - T Normal February snowfall ~ 7.6"
PHL - T Normal February snowfall ~ 8.8"
CPK (Central Park) - T Normal February snowfall ~ 9.2"
ISP (Islip NY) - 0 Normal February snowfall ~ 7.1"
BDR (Bridgeport CT) - T Normal February snowfall ~ 8.1"
PVD (Providence RI) - T Normal February snowfall ~ 8.5"
