  1. Dipped to 31°F this morning with frost on grass.
  2. Not sure who all uses the NC EcoNet stations but they updated their website, dashboard, and added new features on Monday. I'm loving it so far, playing with the Mtn Research Station data. We had patchy frost yesterday morning (34.4°F) but only managed to dip down to 37.9°F this morning, no dice. Link: https://products.climate.ncsu.edu/cardinal/scout/?station=WAYN
  3. Took a slight detour on the way to work this morning. Passing snow showers over Canton.
  4. Driving on I 40 at 2pm around MM 29 and a guy sped by us going at least 70mph, hydroplaned and spun out into a ditch and flipped. It was insane. He walked from it but this rain is way too heavy to be flying down the road. Be safe out there y'all.
  5. There is a slight celebration feel to it. I def was not the first, there were many cars at overlooks taking advantage of the open trailheads but everyone was excited for it be back open.
  6. Parkway is back open and found some light snow around 9am. Looks like most of the parkway picked up a skiff overnight. This was taken nearby Devil's Courthouse/Beech Gap/Hwy 215
  7. @Rainforrest what did you end up with?
  8. 2.5" in Waynesville. A nice drive around town this morning.
  9. 0.5" at 6pm in Waynesville Highlands and Cashiers are north of 1" based on webcams Nothing on the ground in Cullowhee
  10. Much better spot than the last few rounds. I forget, what is your elevation and how far south down 276 are you (no need to be specific, landmarks are fine)?
  11. GSP inching down ever so slightly from the 3am call map. This is the 10am update.
  12. Even though those newer guns were installed years ago, it still amazes me how fast they can go from zero to a skiable base (12 - 18") in under 24 hours. Tammy told me one season they had a 500k energy bill in just one month! That was before their guns and lines were upgraded.
  13. Highlands broke their annual rainfall record this past year at 136.50", only 3.45" shy of the state record at Mt Mitchell in 2018 (139.94"). 2018 - 125.46" 2019 - 111.78" 2020 - 136.50" Some folks have high snow totals, we have high/extreme rain totals. @SnoJoe @LiQuiDBuD
  14. As with most events we talk a lot about populated areas (because its where we live) but who wants to throw down where you think the highest totals will be (factor in backend NW flow snow)? I'm liking the southern end of the Great Balsams but also could see Mt LeConte push past everyone with their last minute light accumulations Sunday morning.
