Having lived most of my 43yrs in NC(Rowan County until 12th grade, now Concord), winter is normally one let down after another. But records show that outside of the high country and foothills, we see an avg of 3-7" depending. About 4-5 imby.
Most years that's what adds up. An inch here and there, and usually a storm with great potential starts as snow and then that pesky warm nose turns it into a sleet festival.
All that to say , there was no accumulating snow last year where I live. Saw some flakes? Sure. But it stands out because I'm going on 700+ days without seeing the ground white.
I will be super shocked to see that happen back to back.
There is STILL roughly 40-50 days for all of us to see accumulating snow. I firmly believe we will.
I can't read the models, but I can speak from experience.
Hang in there. We all know that February and the first 10 days of March are game time!!
