    I think all this excess moisture will be just as miserable. If we head into Spring this wet, it's going to be miserable. We'll have 10 fold the mosquitoes that we're used to and mold spores galore. Basements and crawlspaces are flooding like crazy, foundations are cracking, roofs a leaking at alarming rate. Not to mention all the washout and mudslides we're having and you can forget farming/gardens if this keeps up. At least during a dry spell, less the once in a century wildfires, you can still enjoy it outside in the sun. If we don't dry up soon before April, it's going to be miserable.

    KAVL won't see below freezing temps for the rest of February! Crazy!

    Same! We've had a 12 incher and some other smaller snows. I'll call that a success and ride off into 70 degrees and long days!

    Yea during those CAD setups with cold air coming from the east and warm air to the northwest, it seeps down that French Broad River valley to the from Tennessee and can cut down total in and around Asheville. That's what I was alluding to. All depends on the setup. You definitely do better with NWF that points south.

    IMO it's not the difference in latitude between Fletcher and Downtown that causes the larger descrepecy but the fact that the airport weather station resides along the largest body of moving water in WNC. Same could be said for an area along the French Broad well north of Downtown. This a weather station reading in Hot Springs. The river simply has too much influence. Just east of Fletcher atop Bearwallow Mtn, they are reporting a temperature of 20 degrees. Nearly a 20 degree difference in about 7 short miles. https://climate.ncsu.edu/cronos/?station=BEAR

    True, but then look at snow events like December where when storms come from the South, the difference between downtown and Fletcher was a few inches. All in all, I think it averages out.

    Absolutely ripping here. Think we can stave off that warm nose?

    HRRR aligns with reports we're seeing right now. Snow along southern escarpment, AVL and points north struggling to cool down.

    Drove out to the continental divide in Edneyville. 33 degrees and dumping. Seems AVL proper and north may fall victim to the French Broad River valley letting in too much warm air from Tennessee.
