    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2019

    I would tend to agree, but didnt the mid range models do well with the December storm? They held it together for a good week ahead, albeit with bullseye gyrations of a couple hundred miles over the course of the runup.

    December 8-10 Winter Storm Obs

    7" in western wake county at the Chatham county line. Light precip now, hear some pingers. Just got back from a drive and Town of Cary has plowed all the non-neighborhood roads around here. McDonalds was open. Almost got backed into by a snowplow in the Harris Teeter parking lot.

    December 8-10, 2018 Winter Storm

    It was Dec 2000. In an attempt to not miss out on a Carolina crusher redux, he went all in with huge totals all over the triangle (I think there was a 12-18"+ band on his call map). Woke up the next morning to sunny skies and what there was of the storm had skipped over us and was snowing in the coastal plain (and not nearly that much snow). Ever since then he has been conservative with what he shows on air. Here is a write up on the storm: https://projects.ncsu.edu/atmos_collaboration/nwsfo/storage/cases/20001203/

    A Leeside minimum on the Chatham/Wake county line?

    Major Hurricane Florence: STORM MODE THREAD

    So to sort out this direction discussion, West is 270 degrees, North is 360 degrees (or 0). NW would be halfway between at 315 degrees. WNW would be halfway between W and NW, so 292.5 degrees. So Florence is considered as moving NW because 305 degrees is closer to 315 (NW) than it is to 292.5 (WNW)?

    Jan 16-17 SE Snow Prediction Contest ($ Reward)

    Thanks. Thanks for setting up the contest. My strategy was to have the highest total projected for rdu. Unfortunately, I overshot and didn't pay as much attention to other locations (although my projection matched what I ended up with 10 miles away in NW Cary). Congrats to all those who underperformed.

    Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    That was the storm that made Fishel get ultra-conservative. He posted totals equaling Carolina Crusher totals from earlier in the year. The storm shifted east and was not as strong, no snow in Raleigh. Since then it has been a few inches at best. They did forecast more than 4" for last January's system - but that fizzled due to warm nose: http://www.wral.com/weather/image_gallery/16401198/

    Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Didn't that happen a couple of weeks ago with the coastal crusher? [Or did the snow that fell in FL not accumulate] Still an infrequent achievement.

    Jan 6-8 Winter Storm Observations

    I'm about a half mile east of you and I had a very short period of all snow, been either all sleet or sleet/snow mix for the last few hours.

    That aligns with my brother's 32" in Rockville and my parents' 23" in Annapolis.
