  1. Man what a terrible winter if you love snow.  We were all built up for above average snow due to El Nino and damn we've had only a trace which is worst than last year.  I mean what the hell.  If it isn't going to snow I want warm and dry.  I can't believe we haven't had one storm that produced a nice winter storm.  Frustrating!!!

    The 6z GFS just shows rain with temps way to warm. The CMC and Euro look suppressed and the Euro Control shows a Mountain and Foothills Snowstom.

    You know what's new, everyday I wake up thinking okay this storm will be the one and it just doesn't work out, this was suppose to be one great winter for a lot of the southeast, just frustrating.  Just about to give up, been so disappointed this season.

    12Z GFS still has only 6 mild to warm afternoons in NC: Jan 24-28 and Feb 2 out of 16 days. Also, 4 afternoons are actually cold. And this is well before the modeled/supposed good stuff starts after Feb 10, which hopefully would start showing up near the end of the 15-16 day ensemble runs by this weekend. That’s been the timeframe for that for many days. I’ve been posting about this extended model based potential for ~10 days. No slippage yet.

     I enjoy reading your thoughts my friend, keep up the good work.  Very interesting stuff every time I read your thoughts and research.  Come on snow.  :snowwindow:

    We may just have to move up the mountain and be buckethead’s neighbor. 

    You might be right.  I grew up here and we always that I can remember had great winters with snow.  Has the weather around here changed that much?  1960 school was closed the whole month of February, we had 3 snowstorms one after the other before one could clear up the next storm brought heavy snow and then another.  Us kids loved it.  Best sledding down the road it was so packed down and would freeze at night.

    I know what you mean. Had a rain snow mix all evening while the mountain in front of the house was dumped on with a few inches.

    Man what do we have to do to get a true Miller A in here?  We get the moisture and it's to warm now we're going to get the cold with no moisture.  I'm holding on for February.  Not giving up yet.

    Strange forecast out of GSP this morning for some of the mountains (Graham, Swain,Jacckson,Haywood)..Rain and Snow mix for alot of the event although those counties seem to be in bullseye for most snow.

    The way this is trending Buncombe, Madison, and areas north could be in a nice snow band plus with the temps I would guess all snow and no rain.  I guess GSP is playing it safe for now.
