  1. cold air aloft

    2018/2019 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Interesting tidbit from the 11:30 GSP discussion update: Another note is that new HRRR guidance (HRRE specifically) is quite concerning across the mountains tonight. Probably a little too high (4-8"!) but is concerning enough to mention as a possibility. With this thing being strong on the NW side, it will be very interesting to see what we get tonight and tomorrow, especially for those of you who already have a few inches of upslope rain.

    Tropical systems that effect us here in the mountains remind me a lot of the snow producing storms we get in that there is going to be great variation in precipitation accumulation in very short distances, with so much of it being slope dependent. Unfortunately, some us are going to see major flooding and/or land slide issues. I work in Canton right on the Pigeon River. We took in 4 feet of water with the 2004 Hurricanes, I hope we don't see anything like that with this.

    It has been snowing at a steady rate intermittently in Maggie Valley at 29 degrees, but between the warm ground and March sun bleeding through at times, it has been hard to maintain much of it at this point.

    No it's not. This locked in furnace pattern for the Southeast we've had this month is going to create some very serious agricultural problems I'm afraid.

    The warm temperatures are one thing, but I feel bad for the ski resorts here in WNC having February turn into a monsoon season. At least December and January were kind to them this Winter.

    Anyone looking to warm up should head to Maggie. Up to 41 degrees and light rain with the heavier bands having moved on out.

    Typical CAD event for Maggie Valley. 38 degrees and a roaring southerly wind.

    That's great Met, I knew you Crabtree/Fines Creek folks would really cash in. I had exactly 1 inch in Maggie which I will take any day in a upslope event. There is snow on the ground and it's cold, I'm a happy man. Can't wait to see what the next week or so has in store for us.

    Medium size flakes at 3'000 in Maggie Valley.

    I'm really curious to see if the event is intense enough to push appreciable snow outside of the favored upslope areas.

    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!

    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.
