  1. Was about to say the same thing also the hires NAM does to. 0.33-0.89(Isolated higher pockets also) around Hickory and west. Might not be snow but that's some serious ICE. Even the morning GFS run increased ice totals for my parts to above 0.25-0.48.
  2. Multiple shortrange for awhile now still put out over or around 0.50 ZR for my area just west of Hickory(0.68 on that map). If its anything like the event in November it will catch a lot of people by surprise in my parts.
  3. Yeah had to get the yard stick out lol got almost 13 inches here in Valdese. And still coming down heavy.
  4. Yeah def will be over 12 had close to 10 at 8.

National Weather Service radar indicated a band of very heavy sleet and snow moving northward through the Interstate 40 corridor in western North Carolina this morning. This band was producing precipitation rates on the order of an inch per hour, and significant and sudden additional accumulations will develop in locations already impacted by heavy snow and sleet. Visibility will drop to 1/2 mile or less in some areas. Winds gusting to 20 to 30 mph may accelerate the rate of downed trees, limbs, and power lines and outages may become widespread. Avoid all travel in and near the Interstate 40 corridor this morning. $$
  6. This band over me right now is insane heavy all snow.
  7. Over 9 inches now in Valdese and Morganton still snowing and more to come. https://twitter.com/ScottyPowell_WX/status/1071736585484406785
  8. A little over 6.5 inches now in Valdese just east of Morganton. And coming down nicely but the wind is picking up here. Would not be shocked if we close out around 10 or 11.
  9. I'm just east of you in Valdese what you expect snow total wise before that happens? Also about a hour or so ago maybe around 3 had a heavy band come through did you have any sleet mix in with it? I could not tell if it was mixed in or if was just heavy snow and the wind.
