    Not to fear monger, but being it’s been nearly 20 years since our last major ice storm in Raleigh, a significant amount of ice would be particularly damaging. GFS still on the warm side of guidance. I do not believe it’s capturing a locked in wedge accurately 

    we did have a few major wind events clear out some of the trees/branches plus I think the maintenance of trimming branches near power lines has improved since the last one but you are correct in that there is a lot of potential damage to be done.

    Would rather have cold rain than ice and sleet.

    Sleet is fine - almost like snow  - but ice is not good - sleet will not destroy trees and cut power - ice will. I am fine with snow/sleet - but if it is freezing rain - then cold rain is much much preferred.

    He was very skeptical of the Jan 2000 storm too and kept having to up the totals more and more till it was we don't know how much it's gonna be. It is what it is.

     I went to bed after seeing him say "trace to an inch for us here in Raleigh" - 20 inches later well it was all history!
