For areas south of I85 you have to have a pressing HP from the NE building down as the storm is forming. I was never sold on N GA getting into this storm that much.
Also, EURO is great for sniffing things out in the long term but not as good closer in. One of the few times I can recall sitting in the western piedmont that I was pretty comfortable telling my friends that we would stay all snow. Of course QPF was going to be a question but ptype around where I am was not an issue. HP was strong enough to get the job done here.
