    December 8-10 Winter Storm Obs

    Just measured 8.5" as the snow was turning to sleet. The trees are loaded with snow so any freezing rain could mean big problems

    Eclipsed 6" here but the wind is really whipping it around making measurement tough. The rates right now are the best yet!

    It has been consistent in showing that which is encouraging. I noticed the 6z NAM also wanted to shift the transition zone back south after briefly pushing it northward. The rates are amazing right now!

    Closing in on 4". It's been absolutely pouring snow out there and the wind is ripping. Temp down to 30.2 but CC line is quickly moving north

    Rates and flake size are definitely on the uptick in Chapel Hill with 1.5" so far. Temp is down to 31.8 and treated roads are now being covered up

    I can confirm. Steady light snow for the past 30-40 minutes. Temp has dropped over 4 degrees since midnight. Currently sitting at 34.5/29.7

    I think it at least starts with what they call the "National Blend of Models" that is then adjusted by individual offices before the forecast data actually goes into NWS NDFD forecast grids. Here's a a link to some info about that: https://www.weather.gov/mdl/nbm_about and you can also see the text output for the NBM for airports across the US by navigating through this directory: http://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/blend/prod/

    Just measured an average of 8.5-9", and even 7.5" on the road that has been compacted (also due to additional snow falling from trees onto the road though). Wow is all I have to say. Definitely didn't expect this!

    Measured 8.25" just north of town about 45 minutes ago. I love seeing the area do well for a change! I'm hoping areas further east can cash in on the slowing down of the precip, especially now that temps are beginning to cool

    Just measured shy of 6.5". Still coming down at a decent clip too!

    Yeah it's a very wet snow right now, clinging to all of the trees and the evergreens are noticeably weighed down. Hoping drier snow takes over soon to avoid power issues though. Temp right now is holding steady at 32-32.2

    Just a half mile or so off of weaver dairy, about 2.5-3 miles due north of UNC's campus as the crow flies

    Roughly 2" here. Power just went out briefly and I hope that was a one time thing...

    About an inch here and it just started an hour ago. Wow at these rates! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Pouring snow now just north of Chapel Hill, hovering right around freezing. Grass and even treated roads are now covered
