    I remember that 1979 storm. We had moderate sleet for a good 20 hours. 2m temps were low '20's for the duration. Very strong CAD!

    FFC is monitoring the situation tomorrow. 231 PM EST WED FEB 5 2014 ...FAST MOVING SYSTEM TO BRING POTENTIAL WINTER WEATHER TO AREA THURSDAY EVENING... OVERVIEW... AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI AND ALABAMA THURSDAY MORNING AND GRADUALLY SPREAD MOISTURE NORTHWARD ACROSS THE LOCAL FORECAST AREA THURSDAY AFTERNOON INTO THURSDAY EVENING. THIS WILL LEAD TO LIGHT RAIN DEVELOPING FROM COLUMBUS TO MACON INITIALLY BY 10 AM TO NOON. FROM THERE...IT WILL SPREAD NORTHWARD TO START IN THE ATLANTA METRO DURING THE EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS. AT THE ONSET OF PRECIPITATION...THE TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE LOWER 40S WHICH WILL RESULT IN JUST A COLD RAIN. HOWEVER...AS THE RAIN CONTINUES...THE TEMPERATURES WILL FALL WITH LIGHT SNOW MIXING IN WITH THE RAIN ALONG AND NORTH OF A LA GRANGE TO ATHENS LINE AND UP TO THE ATLANTA METRO DURING THE EVENING HOURS THURSDAY. NORTH OF THE METRO AND INCLUDING THE MOUNTAINS...THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE MAINLY SNOW BUT AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE VERY LIGHT. ALL THE PRECIPITATION WILL END BY LATE THURSDAY NIGHT WITH COLDER TEMPERATURES MOVING IN ITS WAKE. IMPACTS... AT THIS POINT...THIS LOOKS TO BE A FAR DIFFERENT SCENARIO THAN LAST WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES REMAINING ABOVE FREEZING WHILE THE PRECIPITATION IS FALLING. ALSO...LIGHTER AMOUNTS OF PRECIPITATION WILL FURTHER LIMIT ANY ACCUMULATION POTENTIAL. BASED ON THESE FACTORS...WE ARE GOING WITH LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION FOR MOST ALL AREAS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS WHERE A DUSTING IS POSSIBLE. BY FAR...THE BIGGEST POTENTIAL IMPACT WILL BE THE BLACK ICE THURSDAY NIGHT AS SUB FREEZING TEMPERATURES RUSH IN AND RESIDUAL WET ROADWAYS BECOME SLICK DUE TO ICE. THIS THREAT COULD PERSIST INTO FRIDAY MORNING WITH TEMPERATURES NOT EXPECTED TO RISE ABOVE FREEZING UNTIL 10 AM. SUMMARY...THIS IS A RAPIDLY EVOLVING WINTER WEATHER EVENT WITH THE SCOPE REMAINING UNCERTAIN. WE WILL BE VIGOROUSLY INSPECTING THE LATEST DATA TO COME IN THIS EVENING TO DETERMINE SNOW AMOUNTS IF ANY ACROSS THE AREA AS WELL AS POTENTIAL IMPACTS FOR THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY TRAVEL.

    What about Guy Sharp. Is he still around?

    Favorite Winter Storm

    Two of my favorites for Athens, GA were March 1, 2009 (6.5") and January 9-10, 2011 (8.8"). But my all timer was February 1969. We had alternating snow, sleet and freezing rain for a good 36 hours. The best part about it was I got snowed in with my future (and yes, present) wife.

    January 17th-18th Winter Storm Discussion

    Peachtree is on board for the possibility. 1227 PM EST TUE JAN 15 2013 ...WINTER WEATHER POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA ON THURSDAY... A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE STATE ON THURSDAY. AHEAD OF THE SYSTEM... A DEEP SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL SPREAD AMPLE GULF MOISTURE NORTHWARD... RESULTING IN WIDESPREAD RAIN ACROSS NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA. AS THE ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT PUSHES INTO THE CAROLINAS THURSDAY AFTERNOON... A DEEP COLD AIR MASS WILL BEGIN TO SPREAD INTO THE AREA FROM WEST TO EAST THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. AS A RESULT... THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR RAIN TO CHANGE OVER TO SNOW ACROSS PARTS OF NORTH GEORGIA IF SUFFICIENT WRAP AROUND MOISTURE CAN SPREAD BACK INTO THE COLD AIR MASS BEHIND THE DEPARTING COLD FRONT. DESPITE WARM GROUNDS FROM RECENT UNSEASONABLE WARM TEMPERATURES... THERE IS THE POTENTIAL THAT STRONG UPPER FORCING COULD ENHANCE SNOWFALL RATES ENOUGH TO ALLOW FOR SOME LIGHT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS PARTS OF NORTH GEORGIA BY MID TO LATE THURSDAY AFTERNOON OR EARLY EVENING... BUT THIS WOULD BE MAINLY OVER ELEVATED AND GRASSY SURFACES. ALTHOUGH LIGHT SNOW COULD BE SEEN AS FAR SOUTH AS A LA GRANGE TO ATHENS LINE... IT APPEARS THE GREATER CHANCES FOR SNOW ACCUMULATION WOULD BE GENERALLY NORTH OF THE I-20 CORRIDOR WEST OF ATLANTA... AND THE I-85 CORRIDOR EAST OF ATLANTA. AT THIS TIME... NO WIDESPREAD TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES ARE EXPECTED WITH THE INITIAL SNOWFALL THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING... EXCEPT POSSIBLY IN THE NORTHEAST GEORGIA MOUNTAINS WHERE THERE IS A GREATER POTENTIAL FOR HIGHER SNOW ACCUMULATIONS. HOWEVER... THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR PATCHES OF BLACK ICE DEVELOPING ON BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES FROM LATE THURSDAY EVENING THROUGH MID FRIDAY MORNING WHEN TEMPERATURES FALL BELOW FREEZING. ALL INTEREST ACROSS NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND REMAIN ALERT FOR THE POTENTIAL OF WINTER WEATHER THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND THURSDAY NIGHT.

    January Pattern and Storm Discussion II

    I think what Brad was posting is what the GFS showed, not his opinion on snow depth. I've seen some pretty strong dynamic cooling as some of these systems pass through N. Ga, possibly helped by the "in situ" CAD that somtimes occurs.
