  1. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Anybody paying attention to the weather overnight? Nam shows a little freezing rain and a little snow (trace to an inch) for some of the mountains. Could be some slick spots in the morning. Surprised there is not even a special statement or anything out. Be safe!

    Seems to be all snow in Asheville now. Wind is starting to rip here too. Very pretty out looking at the streetlights.
  3. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Pouring in Asheville right now. Think some rain is mixed in. Very loud. But a lot of big flakes too!
  4. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Coming down good now. You can hear it. Almost sounds like sleet. Little hard flakes. Dusting status achieved.

    The HRRR is pretty awesome for this area. Especially when considering we would be looking at much higher ratios than 10 to 1.
  6. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    I was at 43 degrees at 5. Now at 30 degrees. The front means business. I dropped 6 degrees in an hour.
  7. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Already getting a light coating on surfaces here. Really glad we don't have to worry about wasting moisture with temps. Already down to 30 degrees.
  8. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Yup, I have light snow too at 32 degrees.
  9. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Hmm...well the NAM doesn't show a lot in terms of snow maps and the radar even looks anemic as it comes over the mountains; however, at 700 things look moist as well as at the surface. The RGEM actually looks pretty awesome on precipitation. We may not get the most snow, but I also don't think we will get totally blanked. Ratios should be great and timing is actually ideal for us (late evening into the night).
  10. The January 7-8th possible CAD storm

    Wow, just looked at Ray's weather and the temperature spread for Buncombe county is insane. 39 at airport and 27 in Weaverville. 29 at UNCA and 35 in downtown and those are only a mile apart! Very interesting.
  11. Hey guys, just spoke with my mom and she is reporting some sleet in Knoxville. She works near Turkey Creek.
  12. The January 7-8th possible CAD storm

    Yup, better safe than sorry. Last week terrible in Asheville and it was a miniscule glaze. This could be terrible with the morning commute. Glad people are now warned.
  13. New Year’s Eve/Day Minor Snow/Ice Event

    Got a solid dusting in AVL. With the thin layer of ice, it's much dicer out even compared to the last big storm. Saw many wrecks earlier when out.

    Roads are now all white again and everything has a fresh coating. Easily a half inch in 15 minutes. Maybe more. Almost whiteout conditions for a few minutes. Still coming down, just small flakes now. Insane. Even the NWFS is delivering here.
  15. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Wow, having a burst of snow right now.
