    Isn’t Atlanta pretty far east for tornado threat?

    The Atlanta metro is definitely in play for the chance of significant severe including a tornado or two, but as it happens almost 100% of the time with these setups, the instability and threat for major severe always diminishes the further east, especially as you go into the overnight hours.  We call it the north Georgia storm shield.

  3. Hmmmmm, "historic" wording from FFC is, needless to say, extremely unusual.  Haven't heard them honk this much since April 2011 and along with everyone else, hard to see something like that verifying.  Wonder what their thinking is, especially since ATL is further east (as usual) from the greatest threat area.

    People on my FB feed are reporting power outages in Alabama. Apparently the wind is kicking up so strong it’s causing power outages. Low may be stronger than expected?

    Winds are very strong over here, last I read almost 18,000 people without power here in the Atlanta area.

    A lot of what I thought was rain earlier was mainly sleet, may actually have an inch of that on top of the partially melted snow from earlier. Now it just keeps flipping constantly. At times it’s mainly snow, and then it’ll flip mainly sleet and mix in between the flips. Hoping to flip all snow before the heaviest gets hear in a couple hours. Still can’t get that dry easy wind that everyone else is getting though.

    The wind here is amazing....we’re probably getting gusts to 30 mph at this hour.  I can tell you we’re honestly probably lucky the wedge isn’t quite as cold and dry as in previous storms because with the amount of qpf along with this wind, that would be one helluva ice storm and probably one for the ages.

  6. Fairly surprised at the FFC graphic....haven't really chimed in on this storm since it looked to leave us totally out of the game, at least Atlanta proper around the perimeter.  The new EURO continues support for freezing rain in the typical CAD areas from Gwinnett/Hall county and points north and east.  I'd still like to see what the NAM says by tomorrow afternoon for our area, that should give us a better idea of what the potential is, but if we get a stout NE wind per usual, we usually get down to 31/32 around here.  If by some chance the CAD encroaches earlier for the bulk of the precipitation, then NE Georgia up through GSP is going to be in for one serious ice storm.
