  1. Tons of lightning and heavy rain near Rose Hill, but not a lot of wind.
  2. Incredible loop. Atmospheric fire hose.
  3. According to the SPC climo page, late May and June has the most hail. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/new/SVRclimo/climo.php?parm=allHail
  4. March 24/25 Overrunning Disturbance

    About 9" and some change for a total south of Roanoke this morning. Roanoke Airport only received 1.7" total. I was barely on the edge of the bands last night, but it was really putting it down. Bluefield, WV received 17", bringing their monthly total to 32" for March!

    3 1/2" to 4" southern Roanoke County near Floyd County line. 30 degrees. Good stuff is yet to come.

    Great place! There's also a new mercantile place going in right where the produce stand was at the top of the mountain.

    Blacksburg should do fine and likely be in the 6-8"+ range easily. Salem and Roanoke is walking a fine line between moisture and temps. A slight bump north and they get into the goods. This storm might be the case where the airport reports much lower totals than the southern half of the valley. With that said, I'm guessing 4" for Roanoke (airport).. more as you go south.

    33/18 at 2,700ft south of Roanoke. Hoping for at least 6-8", possibly more..

    Copper Hill will be a good spot. That mountain ridge and the 221 corridor from southern Roanoke County into Floyd County should do very well with this. I will be in that area tomorrow and Sunday.
  10. February Discobs Thread

    I love it. Got to 84 here. Keep pushing that front north.
  11. A few quick shots just about 15 minutes ago. Just popped up to 33 degrees.
  12. The heavier precip has "warmed" by backyard up to 30.1 degrees. One of the better ice events that I've seen in a while.
  13. Super Bowl Slop Storm

    Started out with some moderate to heavy snow at about 7am and promptly switch over the IP and ZR by about 9 or 930. It's been moderate ZR since then. Temp not budging at 29.8 degrees.
  14. Can confirm. Bushes starting to sag and trees have a good coating. Powerlines have some mini icicles hanging off them. Temp has only risen like a half degree in an hour.
