    I would expect it to dry up over the next few hours in this area. Could be some light accumulations in the bursts but it’s going to be showery in nature and temps are on the warm side at the surface

    I think we'll see radar break out nicely across E TN / NE GA / NC / northern half of SC overnight into early morning and spreading east thru the day. For you and I, soundings are sketchy for snow, but the timing is good (night and early morning) and it may be just cold enough. I'd keep expectations low on amounts....seeing flakes fly and maybe some light accumulations

    It’s a closed contour upper low that’s dropping down into the trough behind our departing storm. It’s currently located over S Dakota/Nebraska and will drop into E Oklahoma, then swing thru the SE states. Euro has precip breaking out with it in E TN / N GA a little before midnight then swinging east thru the Carolinas overnight and into the morning. Shouldn’t be anything major, but could be some nice embedded snow showers in there

    Some of us have started adding some model performance thoughts on the storm here, FYI: https://www.americanwx.com/bb/topic/49398-southeast-winter-storm-threats-model-performance/?do=findComment&comment=5065039
  8. In terms of the precip type translation, it looks like this storm was kind of in between the RGEM/NAM and the Euro/GFS NAM/RGEM were good with showing precip farther north The globals like GFS/Euro will almost always tick north in the last 24 hr of models cycles Ensembles were solid with showing legit threat when Op runs were jumping around Thoughts?

    Long duration sleet event here. 2.9 inches. 33 degrees. Football in the yard, then tubing up next with the kids, which is where the passion all started for me.

    We have flakes flying on the SW corner of Lake Norman. Winds are up and it sounds like good cold air damming is supposed to sound...unlike earlier in the day

    That looks super aggressive for Charlotte / Lincolnton / Gastonia
