  1. Dusting on raised surfaces this morning and a little on the grass even. 30.7 currently. This makes the latest I've seen sticking snow of any kind in my life. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  2. Snow up around Elk Knob per Facebook. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  3. Currently 36.7 with rain. Come on, man. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  4. Don't look now but looks like more flurries and snow showers on Monday night before a big warmup. Should feel like summer by next weekend. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  5. Got home from the race last night to a solid half inch. Tack that into the half inch we had yesterday morning before it melted and I managed an event total of 1" which is my first measurable snowfall in April since moving here in 2015. Wild. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  6. Finally sticking to the grass. Lovin it. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  7. So. Much. Virga. Today. So much surface dry air to burn through. Glad to see you SW mountain folk aren't having that issue. Edit: aaaand it's raining? Cool. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  8. First lightning strikes up around Bristol. Those dynamics will be fun this afternoon. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  9. Blowing Rock has joined the "its snowing outside" club. Nice little shower rolling through. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  10. Those 500mb maps look wild towards the end of that run. Good ole GooFuS. If the 3km NAM verifies we could see some thundersnow in the squalls tomorrow evening. It's pretty generous in moisture with a second wave Saturday afternoon.
  11. I can guarantee it happening this time. Going to the Martinsville race with my dad on Saturday night with a 745P start time. Looks straight up cold. Thankfully they shortened it to 400 laps.
  12. Seen a few flakes mixing in here a little bit ago. Actually had a light rain/sleet/snow mix going all at once for about 10 minutes. Just April saying hello.
  13. Check back early tomorrow morning. I'm betting you'll get a dusting. That spot over into Moses Cone/Flat Top usually does better than spots around in flow snow. That whole upper half of Shulls Mill didn't completely melt off in spots until a couple weeks ago.
  14. We're at 38 with rain/pinger mix here IMBY. Should switch over soon. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  15. Sitting at rhe bowling alley in Boone with occasional graupel and sunshine. Drunk weather. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  16. These storms along the escarpment mean business. Absolutely dumping. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  17. Man congrats to you border and southern mountain folks. We managed an inch today with the snow squalls. Down to 13.5 and still very breezy. Not our storm again up here but still a refreshing break before spring gets here. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  18. Just had a squall run through Blowing Rock drop visibility down to 100 yards or so. Looked like fog. Wild. Lovin it. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  19. Wind is bonkers here in Blowing Rock. Ran into some low visibility snow on the way in around Valle Crucis. Actually some occasional sun over here on the escarpment right now. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  20. Just a thick dusting here south of Boone. Ready for the NWFS to get going. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  21. Areas affected...Portions of southern and central Appalachians and vicinity Concerning...Heavy snow Valid 120733Z - 121330Z SUMMARY...Heavy snow is possible within the southern and central Appalachians and vicinity. 1-2 inches per hour snowfall is possible in eastern Tennessee and Kentucky. Rates of 1-1.5 inches per hour will continue to move northeastward into West Virginia and western/central Pennsylvania towards early morning. DISCUSSION...Temperatures have been dropping quickly across eastern Tennessee and Kentucky over the past 1-2 hours as cold air advection and diabatic cooling have increased. Correlation coefficient data from KJKL and KMRX show a transition zone from rain to snow roughly located in the Cumberland Plateau vicinity. This transition zone has quickly shifted east over the last hour. The combination of mid-level ascent and upslope flow will support 1-2 inch snowfall rates along the western slopes into the Appalachians. The greatest snowfall rates will begin to taper off by 4-6 AM EST. Farther north, snowfall is increasing across West Virginia into western Pennsylvania. Several observations sites are reporting moderate to heavy snow that is has been primarily driven by 850-700 mb frontogentic lift. As the trough moves east and intensifies, deep-layer ascent will increase in these areas into early Saturday morning. The potential for 1-1.5 inch snowfall rates will increase accordingly during the next several hours. ..Wendt.. 03/12/2022 Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  22. 30 with all snow. Not sticking yet but won't be long. Edit: mixing with sleet at times.
  23. Same here. 48.6 Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  24. 12z HRRR tracks the LP right over CLT. Looks really good for the mountains this run with several hours of snow with the main band before NWF sets in. Bring. It. Also @BooneWXI'm sitting at a lovely 19". 100% of that fell in that 3 week period of January too.
  25. GSP talking about convectively enhanced snow Saturday afternoon. Gonna be a fun day no doubt. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
