  1. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    You can certainly downplay it, just not so definitive as he was in that post. He can’t be WidreMann for the masses .
  2. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    “Trust me, not a big deal” He certainly wasn’t the only one though! .
  3. 1/16-1/17 Event OBS

    About 4” in Boone and still snowing with very high ratio snow, almost looks fake. Sure was an over performer here given many of the models have shown trace to inch amounts for Mtn’s and foothills. I posted several days ago to keep an eye out for a low to form in NW S.C. that could lead to an over performer in WNC. Love these over performers, 3rd one so far this season for this area. .
  4. Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    I remember an event in the early 2000’s that had a similar setup, none of the models picked up on the low that formed in NW S.C. that slowly slid due east and dumped 6-10” in the foothills when most of the models were showing 1-2” totals. Something to keep an eye on. .
  5. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    Not sure how we have a closed low move directly over the Mtn’s (per Euro) and the precip just vanishes before it gets here?? Can someone explain this? .
  6. New Year’s Eve/Day Minor Snow/Ice Event

    Lol when you’re in the office doing work it conveys the current conditions good enough. .
  7. New Year’s Eve/Day Minor Snow/Ice Event

    Coming down pretty good in Boone! .

    Nice little surprise ongoing in Boone right now. Adding up quickly .

    Craziest thing this evening. Left Boone to head to hickory around 5:45pm with some flurries in Boone. Get to the Tanger Outlets in Blowing Rock and the roads and everything are solid white with moderate snow falling. Get past the Green Park Inn and there’s about 40 cars at a stand still coming up the Mtn because several cars were stuck. Get a couple miles down the road where the salt station is on 321 and the gates closed and no lights on. Totally unprepared on this random snow squall. Came back through around 10:30pm and there were salt trucks everywhere lol .
  10. Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    I swear the models get worse and worse every year. So far we’ve had a non existent storm become a storm with 48 hours and we’ve had a massive parade of storms at 7-10 days become non existent storms. Really pisses you off. .

    Although this arrived today, mainly for drone business usage, it may come in very handy next week… .

    Flurries in Boone, certainly doesn’t look good at the moment. .
  13. 2017 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread

    I recall the NAM around 24-36 hours out showing virtually zero accumulations for all of NC for several runs. I would honestly only put it slightly above the euro and gfs for this storm imo .
  14. Boy what an over producer for WNC. Looks like a conveyor belt of never ending snow on the radar. Can’t remember seeing a radar look so good down stream. The orientation of the moisture is perfect where typically it’s too much west to east movement. .

    Amazing how sharp that cutoff is for precipitation on the west side of the storm. Literally like a brick wall. I love the orientation of this storm too, haven’t seen many have such a conveyor belt like path. Usually it’s too much west to east movement but this....it’s awesome! Absolutely love these plus side busts! .
