  1. Light snow downtown Winston. Back edge moving this way fast though
  2. Is all this precip so far just part of the over-running? Seeing the back edge already near the TN/NC border...could it re-blossom to the NW with coastal transfer?
  3. Down to 33 here - SW Winston. Light to moderate snow, visibility slightly better. Radar looks a bit lighter upstream to the WSW. Only sticking to grass, trees, car tops so far.
  4. Moderate snow now in Winston - visibility dropped noticeably.
  5. Very light snow, small flakes near in Winston - Statford/Hanes Mall area - just started.
  6. Just some fuzzy overcast still in Winston. Breezy.
  7. Is it just a coincidence that current SE regional radar mosaic mirrors the modeling - showing the lee side precip shadowing in NW piedmont? I mean it looks just like the total QPF maps.
  8. 39/26 - dew point trying to creep up. Just some virga overhead.
  9. Thanks, I agree. I'm remembering the over-running orientation from the December 2018 big storm. Definitely had a WSW to ENE movement. Our air is super dry here now. Maybe I'll storm chase to Rocky Mount or Greenville
  10. Were dew points modeled to drop this low in the Triad area? I'm seeing lots of low 20's... I understand that helps a quick changeover to snow - but isn't it a double-edge sword with lower QPF and accumulation?
  11. Can anyone remember a really crazy snowfall gradient, within one county, in the Piedmont/Triad area? Looking at the latest NAM maps, if to verify, would be some wild cutoffs somewhere near Forsyth or Guilford county... Thanks
  12. Would you include the Triad as part of the lee side in this setup? Or a bit further West in the true foothills...
  13. We have been right on the edge of the front all day. We were about 60 degrees in Winston until 4am or so, then dropped to mid 40's in less than 2 hours. Climbed just slightly up to around 49-50 degrees just in the last hour. Amazing how the most severe cells came right up just to our south, less than 10 miles, then pushed east. Forsyth County was actually tornado warned earlier but the radar indicated rotation was JUST south in Davie County. Closest lighting strike though was less than 2 miles, lots of thunder today. Dangerous day but extremely interesting to learn from as a novice.
