  1. So really curious about this one, I've lived in Atlanta for my whole life and have seen these types of setups a million times with sometimes much better "enviornments" than yesterday, especially being this early in the season. What did you see that made this cold push so much more potent than usual? I mean, cold air pushing down from the NW hardly if ever makes it over the appalachians in time, we can never seem to get appreciable snowfall with some type of arctic air in place or a nice dry CAD. What on earth happened differently than normal to make this work for the Georgia people?
  2. Still can't get over the HRRR.......has the secondary band pivot right over the Atlanta metro and has us in the snow until close to 11 AM on Saturday morning.....just incredible if it pans out this way.
  3. This is really incredible, I cannot remember a storm like this that overperformed to the high side......I’m as big a snow weenie as the rest and even I wasn’t really all too excited about this event. I expected the typical splatting rain with a changeover late tonight giving maybe a dusting. We’ve all seen this before here a million times. The postmortem on this storm will be interesting especially considering how early in the year it is.
  4. The HRRR still has it snowing in the Atlanta metro until late tomorrow morning, unreal.......is this even possible around here? Amazing
  5. Man, how many times has a marginal setup performed like this on the cold side for us here in north Georgia? Still pouring outside right now in Flowery Branch. After seeing how marginal the temps were the last two days I would’ve bet a lot of money we would have gotten a cold rain for most of the day.
  6. Pretty interesting, per the SPC mesoanalysis Page, the 925 and 850 lines have pushed fairly well south and east of the metro Atlanta area as the morning has worn on. That in and of itself is shocking with this type of setup.....that line usually stays north of this area in this type of storm.
  7. Man, lost in all the wind reports here is just how lucky we are here with the high pressure to our north with cooler air in place since under a normal early September pattern, we would be in prime territory for a tropical system Tornado outbreak. Under a similar track, if it was close to 80 degrees or so with any kind of breaks in the clouds, we would have most likely seen numerous tornado touchdowns today.
  8. Yeah, so far nothing of note here....we've had breezier spring days.
  9. I don't know, I'm beginning to wonder.....I'm 2 hours southwest of you and nothing here but light rain....no wind to speak of other than a gentle breeze every now and then.
  10. If you look at the last several frames of the AVN satellite loop, The CDO is literally exploding in size as well, it contracted quite a bit over the last 12 hours, but seems to be rapidly expanding in size as well as intensity. That didn't take long.
  11. I know, I was here, I guess it depends on what you're definition of disaster is. Disaster to me is Hurricane Katrina, Moore, Oklahoma, Harvey, Sandy, et. al. I don't think the metro Atlanta community considers Opal a disaster, heck, I'd be willing to bet if you asked 100 people if they remember Hurricane Opal's remnants and what happened, most couldn't. Anyhoo, what we should be paying attention to here in N. Georgia is how far north Irma can make it before going on shore......the more west, the less time for weakening as it moves into our area. If you take a look at NHC's 11 AM track, it's not inconceivable that Irma could stay over the Gulf until she's north of Tampa!
  12. That's robust alright. Are there any past cases where the GFS and EURO pressure drops have verified to any sort of this magnitude?
  13. I'm pretty excited about the prospects of what could happen here in N. Ga. too, but c'mon, a tropical depression is not going to send Atlanta into a disaster. There'll probably be some power outages and trees down if the models hold true, but disaster? C'mon.
  14. Pretty much nothing wrong with what I posted......I agree that no one should let there guard down and I did not post anything absolute......that's what the words "may" and "probably" mean. It's just amazing to me that with all the model runs and what looked like could have been we're down to watching it trek across the northern coast of Cuba which is having a bit more of an impact than the NHC and others thought (me included).
  15. NHC is Keeping it a Cat 4 at the 8 AM advisory......has recon sampled winds even close to that at this point? Agree that they probably don't want to drop it too much due to complacency perhaps?
