  1. Light cotton balls falling ATM at 32 degrees. Drove home from work in WS around 4 pm when it was flurrying from first round. Saw mostly snow until around guilford alamance county line and then lots of sleet mixed in. Got home which is about 3 miles south of kbuy and some of sleet was collecting on grassy surfaces. After I got home, hit with heavy sleet before switch to snow that is falling now. This is about last of round 1. The temp got down to freezing and got to see it fall in daylight so a win times 2 so far.
  2. It is more about how dry the whole column of air from cloud to ground is.
  3. If right, Brrr...
  4. Burlington is similar to GSO for max temps. Even has a thunder sleet sighting... http://68.226.77.253/text/NAMSFC/NAM_kbuy.txt
  5. Good idea. The Nam simulated radar at 3 hours is pretty off from what the actual radar is showing regarding coverage and southern extent. It also does not have the northern tongue in the correct orientation or extent versus what is showing on radar in Missouri and Illinois. I think now cast and real time observations upstream are going to be as accurate as any thing else for this system.
  6. While not the same specifics at this point, 6z GFS shows something at similar time frame. Interesting week ahead, it seems.
  7. My favorite is the typo for "shift" under "D".
  8. Here at KBUY, we had some localized and minor damage from the winds last night including one of the bradford pear trees in our front yard.
  9. Burger, I am 3 miles south of KBUY on Hwy 62 in Burlington, NC. Thanks for managing this!
