    Real lull here currently near Hendersonville. http://origin.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/metwatch/metwatch_mpd_multi.php?md=0852&yr=2018

    Latest HRRR has it headed into northeast Georgia and then drifting south a bit (?)

    Looks like GSP lowered totals west of the escarpment. Odd, considering the model trends. Still up in the air.

    https://nwschat.weather.gov/p.php?pid=201809141517-KGSP-NOUS42-PNSGSP RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF EIGHT TO TWELVE INCHES ARE POSSIBLE WITH ISOLATED AMOUNTS TO 15 INCHES ALONG THE BLUE RIDGE ESCARPMENT FROM HENDERSON AND POLK COUNTIES NORTHWARD INTO AVERY AND CALDWELL COUNTIES, NORTH CAROLINA. ISOLATED LANDSLIDES ARE LIKELY WITH RAINFALL TOTALS OF SIX TO TEN INCHES, WITH GREATER COVERAGE IF RAINFALL TOTALS EXCEED THAT LEVEL. AREAS THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED RECENT LANDSLIDE ACTIVITY MAY BE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO ADDITIONAL LANDSLIDES. Honestly, at this point, expecting anywhere from 1-15 inches of rain. We shall see.

    Starting to feel like we're in for a surprise: https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/sat/satlooper.php?region=06L&product=vis https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/sat/satlooper.php?region=06L&product=ir

    Interesting call for "up to 15 inches"... It could go either way really. It's more a now-casting type of thing. We shall see!

    Well, this has certainly been fun to watch unfold... and will continue to be. Will have me well prepared for winter. Expecting anywhere from 2-10 inches of rain here near Mountain Home. We shall see.

    Wild amounts of rain --- It appears that stream coming in from the gulf isn't going to move any time soon... Going to be a wet night.

    Snowing hard in Fletcher again. After 30 minutes of sunlight. Adding up quick. Nice surprise!

    Woke up to about half and inch here. Unexpected. The roads were glazed on the way into work in Fletcher. People sliding all over the place.

    Absolutely pouring here in Fletcher. Starting to stick to the grass, car tops. Wasn't expecting this. A tease!

    Moderate freezing rain still, 29 degrees. Wondering how long we'll stay below freezing. Was hoping to see some snow, but no thanks to the ice.

    Started as freezing rain here. Everything has a nice glaze on it so far. Hopefully it warms up quickly.

    Looks like some light precip is blossoming further west towards Buncombe... we shall see!
