  1. Let's go!!! Avery-Madison-Yancey-Mitchell-Swain-Haywood-Buncombe-Graham- Northern Jackson-Macon-Southern Jackson-Transylvania- Caldwell Mountains-Burke Mountains-McDowell Mountains- 450 AM EDT Mon Nov 1 2021 This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the mountains of western North Carolina. .DAY ONE...Today and tonight. Hazardous weather is not expected at this time. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday. Accumulating snow is possible at elevations above 3500 feet in the North Carolina mountains, and throughout the northern mountains, from late Wednesday night through Friday morning. The heaviest accumulations would affect ridgetop locations. Any accumulations could make for slippery road conditions on Friday morning with temperatures expected to be at or below the freezing mark in many high elevation spots.
  2. Nice Pics! Color around Yancey has really come out this week. Lord, I bet your driveway is scary in winter.
  3. Front is coming through here. Winds sustained at 22 with gusts to 32. Drizzly and the temps are slowly falling. Raw night.
  4. Hi Folks. Moved back last weekend and have been cruising around this week. From Grandfather to Roan to Mitchell and the color has been very average. When the valleys change maybe it'll be better but not too impressed now. Jeff, if the conditions are decent the slopes will be insanely crowded even on Christmas Day. Was a great summer on the coast. Never got too hot, no canes, and the fishing and golf were incredible. Looking forward to the cool shot. Time to get into snow mode. First flakes will be Nov. 19 at 7:12 pm.
  5. I came back home for a week to manage some renovations and was reminded why I hate the mountains in the spring. Cold, wet, damp, windy, foggy, cloudy, dark, gloomy, sloppy, miserable, etc, etc, etc. I remember as a kid thinking when it was March that we had another 2 to 3 months of horrible weather. Granted, I'm one that loves snow but not so much cold and dreary. It hasn't been a particularly warm spring on the coast but at least you can go outside without a sweatshirt, jacket, umbrella, boots, etc.
  6. Had a little storm here. A couple of claps and then it was over. We went to Burnsville to grab a bite for lunch and came out and the car was already turning yellow. Pollen has really ramped up in the last few days.
  7. Heaviest shower of the day. Things have dusted up nicely. It's 22.3 and breezy. This is probably the last of the season and it was a good way to end. I enjoyed today.
  8. Had a dusting this morning and light showers today that are continuing. I had a high of 27.8 with a 20 knot wind. Winter came back.
  9. I had 1.02 inches of rain from that storm in 17 minutes and a gust of 47. Frog strangler!
  10. I agree. I've got a small creek about to hop it's banks on the lower part of my driveway. I've had almost 3 inches (2.79") so far. A lot of that in the last 4 hours.
  11. Not me. I'm out of town for a couple of weeks. Doesn't surprise me though. A man a few years ago burnt down his barn because he was "getting rid of the extra hay and thought burning it would be faster than shoveling it out." Edit - Meant to quote Bucket.
  12. ....... This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the northern mountains of western North Carolina. .DAY ONE...Today and tonight. Isolated thunderstorms will develop across the northern mountains this afternoon. The main threats with these thunderstorms will be occasional cloud-to-ground lightning and locally heavy rainfall. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday. Heavy rain showers are expected to develop on Sunday night and linger into Monday morning as a cold front crosses the region. The rain could be sufficient for isolated, minor flooding to develop in some locations.
  13. I've had snowflakes today, a little sleet, but mostly a ton of rain (1.22). The mud is back with a vengeance. The rain we've had this winter is about enough to make the decent snow totals moot. My other tab is open to a VRBO site. I can't stand it anymore.
  14. From Ray's Weather Center: ..... Backwash moisture on a northwest flow contributes to flurries or scattered snow showers, especially tonight, though anytime during the day is fair game. Anybody know what he's talking about?
