    Wound up with 3.6 inches at the house in Maggie. Just awesome! I'm glad this looks like an event where almost everyone cashes in and gets something. Best of luck today to our friends in the Piedmont and down East!

    Welcome neighbor!

    Literally just went from groupal to light snow a few minutes ago. I have been optimistic about this event for a couple of inches or so, but I really don't know what, if anything, we will get. Oh well, I'll try and not worry about it and just have fun observing what happens.

    My wife works in Balsam (near Barber's Orchard) and reports that snow is falling at a decent clip.

    That's true, but remember, we have a frozen ground and with the bulk of the precipitation holding off until after sunset, not much of the snow will be wasted.

    GSP still has the event being rain for an hour or two here in the mountains before transitioning to snow. Not sure I buy that, the history of this storm has temperatures plummeting as soon as precip starts.

    In the TN Valley forum, some are saying that the decay of the initial band was forecasted to happen and that the main line of precipitation will re intensify. It will be interesting to see if radar verifies that.

    A co-worker just heard from a family member that flurries are flying in the Fines Creek area of Haywood County, near the TN border.
  9. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    This close in I look at radar returns more than the models. I'm pretty encouraged over what is building over East Tx.

    Most systems I have some some sort of "gut feel", right or wrong. Not this one. I can see anything from a total bust to a result that way over performs forcasts. I'll just wait and enjoy and learn off of this one, whatever happens.

    About a half of an inch of snow in Maggie Valley and a pretty decent cover on the drive in to Canton this morning. Some slick roads out there. Kind of surprised there is no WWA between the snow and black ice with the low temperatures.

    Down to 3 in Maggie Valley this morning. Since I found this forum last Winter I have read and observed more than posted, trying to learn from from those with more expertise, like yourself. I've enjoyed the observations of a fellow Haywood County resident and like the others here, I wish you much success in your new ventures up North. Also, I'm sure it will be a lot of fun to learn and experience the intricacies and quirks of the weather in a new environment. Best of luck to you!

    Classic Haywood County upslope event. Left Maggie Valley to go to work in Canton with not a cloud in the sky (Maggie never gets anything out of NW flow events) get to Lake Junaluska and look north towards Crabtree/Iron Duff and see solid darkness, get on 23/74 and right in front of the hospital, boom! run into a wall of pouring down snow and stay in it through Clyde (where the secondary roads are covered). Flurries and gusting wind here in Canton. These events are a fun phenomenon around here

    Awesome picture. Congrats!

    More snow starting to mix in with graupel/freezing fog/sleet/whatever. Good thing tomorrow is a holiday. Hopefully most people will stay off the roads for a while.
