    Great minds (I also have Baileys for my coffee).

    I am also in West Asheville (actually just on the north side of Patton) and I haven't measured but I am guessing I got around 10 inches. I did see pictures from downtown that looked closer to 5-6, but it was just one picture. Lost power around 3 am or so, but back on this morning. Glad we ended up with a nice storm. I imagine we would have a few more inches if we didn't have that run of rain/sleet.

    Warm nose showing up in West Asheville. Raining currently.

    21 years here in Asheville, and yep, seen plenty of screw jobs. But reading the GSP forecast discussion and looking at the hourly forecast, they seem to account for this somewhat, and it won't be until tonight when the real action starts. Crossing my fingers.

    NWS hourly forecast has Asheville above freezing until 8 pm, BUT it currently states we should be at 35 degrees right now and we are at 40. No bueno. But it's going to be a long storm so I will just be patient.

    Rain has started in West Asheville, and currently at 40 degrees.

    Florence Observations

    My friends have a house on the Black River near Ivanhoe, NC. It sits on a bluff around 20-25 feet above it. Floyd got to the top off the bluff. Matthew got to the base of their house. And now the river gauge is showing a foot higher than Matthew. Unbelievable that this area has seen historic flooding 3 times in the last 20 years.

    Hurricane Florence

    Where did you get this product? Been hunting around the GSP webpage for 15 minutes.

    Hurricane Florence

    I have to respectfully disagree. Yes, it limits wind damage further inland, but a stall could produce astronomical flooding in eastern NC. I would much rather see a faster moving storm.

    Tropical Storm Jose

    He ran the other one based on the projected location of Jose after the loop to loop, which is further south than it's current location, hence the higher percentage of going onshore.
  12. I have a friend in the Reems Creek area about 10 or so miles NNW of Asheville who has 4 inches of snow. Here in West Asheville we have over 8. Crazy difference. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk
  13. I don't like the big hole in Buncombe County that this QPF map shows. I assume this is from downsloping winds? Still should be a good amount of snow, but the map suggests closer to 8 inches than 18 for western Buncombe. That may not be a bad thing if everyone is getting clobbered.
  14. To my recollection this is the most snow forecast for this area by the NWS since I moved to Asheville in 1997.

    GSP or any other NWS office is going to use every tool in their toolbox. Their forecasts are what are used to determine the actions of local and state governments, and their forecasts are the most scrutinized because of this. They will use every tool they have to come up with the best forecast, and they are the forecasters I trust the most.
