  1. Really got to watch this one on Tuesday night-Wed am. We're trending colder - major ice storm cold.

    Impressed by how much the temps in the foothills are torching with over a foot of snowpack.
  3. Enjoy folks! Not trying to jump the gun but I’m going to declare the FV3 the new king lol.

    Very heavy snow in Lenoir...heaviest rates of the storm in fact. About 9 inches.

    I’ve been so puzzled by this. It’s been snowing in Lenoir for a while now and the ground is white. Odd how it’s been delayed in areas where the moisture hitting Lenoir, has already passed over.
  7. I just don’t know what to make of the FV3....I mean it’s supposed to be the new GFS in a few months, but I mean...30 inches. I hope so, but dang that’s hard to buy.

    I’ll take a stab at this one. Growing up in Mount Airy, I always had the same question, because you’d frequently see the same thing modeled for that area. I believe (and someone with a legit background feel free to correct me), the models always try to predict lee side sinking. I’ve found that in these particular systems, coming up from the south, it rarely happens. Usually I just ignore the hole’s.
  9. Don't get hung up on the details. The ingredients are there and that's what we have to look to with 5-6 days to go.
  10. My crowd as well. Dry weather would be nice, but it won't keep me from being there and being loud.
  11. And then delivers a nice surprise by getting the rain out of here 2 hours before kick off.
  12. For those of us attending Saturday's matchup in Boone: 12z Euro and GFS both agree that heavy precip rolls out around 12 pm. Fingers crossed....

    I work in Lenoir and the winds have increased dramatically. Trees laying sideways on a few of these gusts.
  14. Yikes. Looks like the HRRR is going to verify.

    Just me, or does thing seem to be coming slightly farther west than predicted? The turn doesn't seem to be as prominent as forecasted.
