    Looks like a Raven.
  2. January Observations

    Where are you? I'm in the extreme NE corner. Moderate rainfall. Hey, I'm in Roanoke Rapids, should show in my location. I'm on the north western side, so really the eastern edge of the Piedmont and up near Virginia. To your west a bit if you are in Elizabeth City. More rain than I thought from this front here, but looks to be ending now.

    Thunder at 8am here in eastern NC
  4. January Observations

    Thunder this morning around 8am. Good bit of rain
  5. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Wicked gradient there between Lee and Harnett Counties. Trace to 8-10 separated by not many miles. Almost impossible to forecast that precisely.

    Has anyone seen official totals for NC, entire state, or RAH area yet? Please link if you have it. I see the one posted from GSP. Many thanks!
  7. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Snow cover this morning from Goes16. Note as epic as it was, not everyone in our forum fared well. Not even everyone in NC, but most in the Tar Heel state did very well.
  8. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Coming down pretty good again. Radar has filled in nicely. Moderate snow.
  9. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Huge snow hole opening up north and east of RAH on the radar returns. Suspect some of the banding features will pass through the area still though over the next few hours.
  10. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Snow in the Dogwood branches and buds, dusk this evening. I've got about 3 inches and still snowing lightly.
  11. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    Snow, occasionally moderate. Never got into the heavy rates, a little too far north and east. About 3 inches accumulation though, might make it to 4, that’s pretty good. 27.
  12. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Surface frontogenesis also highlights the baby coastal slp
  13. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    There's a chance. Probably not until the slp pulls to your north east and that diffuse uper level back end comes through. Flurries and a dusting maybe.
  14. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Sequence begins a few hours from now, just to show the continued press of cold air and upper level vortex energy. Note the mesoscale slp just offshore and approaches Hatteras. Could be heavy snow on the outer banks tonight.
  15. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Found one of the best frames for your area. Enhanced area just south of Wake Co. This is about 3-4 hrs from now.
