    I am sure you have already posted this, but what was the final total up there? Hoping you ended up in a great spot!

    Aint that the truth brother. I really need to move away from the CHARLOTTE I-85 kiss of death. LOL

    Grit, Thank you so very much for all your analysis and PBP. You are a Redtag in my book...all day-EVERY DAY! How much did you end up with in your backyard? Hoping this ULL holds a good surprise for us (or at least the ones who got the shaft on round one). Thanks in advance!

    What do you think from what you are seeing, with the formation of the ULL? Does this thing have some horsepower? Or do you think we will just get on and off snow showers? It will be interesting to see where this sets up shop at...

    ULL's are so tough to forecast. I remember when NWS was calling for 1-2" and when it got going, they came back with the famous "there is a fly in the ointment" in their Forecast Disscusion and we ended up with thundersnow and 10-12" inches on the ground, when it was all said and done. This was from the early 2000's. Do you remember that storm @Queencitywx? I believe we were on the Wright Weather at the time.

    I cannot get over how heavy it is. We have a pink and blue echo over us, but it is ALL snow and SO HEAVY. It is piling up fast. Almost an inch. From timing it, I would say 1" per hr rates ATTM

    In my dreams man! I wish! I fear the mixing. I think these heavy bands rolling in will cool it off enough for at least a couple of hours of wet snow before back and forth mixing. Thanks for Posting on here the past couple of days!

    I wonder roughly how many hours do you think this model recognizes that we have primarily snowfall?

    Sorry this happened to you all. I am glad everyone was ok. Our Daughter (now 16 yrs old) was born 12 weeks early and had spent 8 weeks in the Neonatal intensive Care Unit. They released her from the Hospital the evening before go time of the storm. We were without power for 7 days. THANK GOD for Propane Gas Logs to heat our house. I begged for them to keep her there for a few more days and no dice.

    I sure hope this one has the best verification score! WOW. The unrealistic weenie in me loves this one, albeit, it seems to have been the most consistent model the entire process (so far)!

    Thanks! I have my fingers crossed for the Belmont and Charlotte area(s). Good luck!

    I think it will still be some significant totals. I would not be surprised to wring out 8-12" total, based on a blend of all the models right now. My excitement meter is rising fo sho!
