    Winter 2018-2019 Speculation

    True. I had 13” of snow IMBY and it came from one snow on December 9. If you had told me last October that this is how winter would play out, I’d have said your were nuts. I would have rather had three 4” snows spaced out from Christmas to mid-February.

    February 2019 Observations

    Nice, white coating of sleet already on the grass and cars here in Greensboro. RAH: “Little or no sleet accumulation expected.”

    The ridiculously obvious rule of thumb in NC is those north and/or west of a given location will usually receive more winter accumulation during any given season. Even within a single county. Individual storms might pan out differently, but this rule seems to hold true over an entire winter.

    Ice Storm Photos from Stokes County NC

    That house is on Hooker Farm Road between Moore’s Wall and Tory’s Den Cave. It’s a pretty new house. I own 18 acres in Stokes for a future house and I’m in that area all the time. I like getting away from the city slickers.

    Two-hour delay for Guilford County schools (GSO) on Monday. Stokes County schools will be closed on Monday.

    It wasn’t bad at all IMBY, but everything above ~15 feet is still coated and frozen. Nothing too thick, but enough to drop limbs here and there. I wonder what schools are going to do tomorrow. Roads seem fine, but areas in Forsyth and north and west Guilford could still have issues into tomorrow.

    Woke up to glazed trees this morning. Roads don’t look bad at all. In-laws don’t have power, but we do at our house. Could have been far worse here. Thankfully, we stayed a degree or two warmer than anticipated.

    Have fun up in Stuart. I own 18 acres up in northeast Stokes County for an eventual new house once we get the kids grown. I might drive up tomorrow (if I can) to maybe see a little more than what I’m expecting here. Here in GSO, I’m at 38 without the first flake.

    How things play out between NW Guilford and SE Guilford could be night and day different. They provide a little more detail in my part of town.

    That’s a nightmare scenario for the Triad. Crippling ice like that would set us back a week. Why do these storms hit right when Van Denton has the weekend off at Fox 8? Denton and East are the only local mets I trust. Kate Garner downplays everything until it’s too late to act. Remember how she said that Hurricane Michael wouldn’t be a problem for us? I didn’t have power for three days.

    I’m used to RAH’s forecasts for my area. ”Chance of rain, freezing rain, sleet, or snow at some point today. Expect accumulations anywhere between zero and 8” of frozen precipitation. Highs anticipated to reach anywhere between 28 and 50.”

    RAH stills gives us a little hope for something. ZR is my fear though.

    January 12th-13th event

    I don’t know. I guess it depends what you mean by good, but the Triad and NW Piedmont outside the mountains tend to reel in at least two to three decent snow events each season.

    Perhaps. I’ll temper my optimism until Friday. On the bright side, any additional snow we get this season is just gravy.
