    What radar station do you guys use for this area on RadarScope? I’m using Greenville Spartanburg, but nothing seems to be really good. The returns have hardly matched what I’m seeing from the sky 

    The mountains block the radar beams.  There’s not a good radar to properly analyze what is happening over the mountains.

  2. All snow here in Black Mountain still.  Hard to get a good measurement because of how windy it is here and my in laws have no big trees around them.  The wind just sweeps it all around.  The deck looks like only 2 inches on the railing, therefore.

    Out in the grass, I took four different measurements:  two sixes and two sevens.  Average of 6.5.  Drop out another half inch for grass inflation, and we easily have 6 inches total here!

    Took a long walk out and about Owen High School.  If you know the area, it is brutal on top of the hill near the Presbyterian Children’s Home.  The wind sweeps across the road and just flings the snow in your face.

    I love it, though!  This is awesome!

    Glad to hear we got about 5.5 inches back in Hickory before it has since changed to sleet.  That’s amazing for that area.

    About 3.5 inches with heavy snow falling and blowing in NW Hickory.

    Thanks so much, @avianman.  We made the decision to ride out the storm in Black Mountain, so I’m curious what conditions are back home.  It’s windy up here with steady snow.

    Take some good measurements for me.  I’m in NW Hickory too, so I’ll use your backyard totals for my stats since I can’t take them myself.  :D

    3.5 already is great!  Hopefully, you can keep that transition line to your south and east.

  4. At the in-laws in Black Mountain.  Flurries started on Old Fort Mountain on I-40.  Light flurry action here at their house too.  Turned on the game and saw Chris Justus break in with those same maps @strongwxnc posted above.  We are right on the western border of his 12+ stripe.  He is much more bullish than is the NWS.  Fingers crossed.  Let’s get this show started!

    That snow map is “Total Snow” and would incorporate everything getting ready to fall in the western half of the state.  Thus, it’s really big for the east, and the west is on the fringe.  For now.
