  1. I'm close to the spinx here in TR.
  2. Got fortunate here where I'm at in Travelers Rest. Worst of it went just south and just north of me.
  3. Confirmed large tornado according to Chris Justus with this cell that went through Seneca
  4. Some sort of rain/snow/sleet mix now in TR. Hard to tell in the dark. Sidewalks and roads have a nice dusting on them. Should be a fun drive to work in the morning.
  5. That's a good question. Climatology is a real b*tch and it's hard to get just snow here. Even in the 93 superstorm I remember sleet mixing in here.
  6. Not sure where you are, but I don't think we'll know until morning in the Upstate. Believe the heaviest is suppose to be from midnight to the morning.
  7. What a differencea few miles makes. Left Simpsonville to cold rain, arrived home in TR to beautiful snow falling.
  8. You've thrown in the towel so many times with this storm I'm surprised you have any left. You've made it clear how pessimistic you are about it.
  9. Isn't that where you were forecasted to be at this time?I
  10. I'm stuck in cold rainy Simpsonville at the moment. I'll be back in Travelers Rest by 7 hopefully before the worst of it starts.
  11. Not gonna happen, not that much anyway. Even half of that though in this area would be terrible.
  12. In early December. Be thankful for anything you get here this time of year...or any time of year for that matter lol. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come in what's suppose to be a very active winter.
  13. Not sure why all the cliff jumping for some in Upstate SC. WYFF still seems highly confident and has even upped the snow totals in some places. Of course, I'm also sitting good being up in TR too. First winter on the good side of I-85! Glad I made that move lol
  14. WYFF is buying into the southern trend. They've upped their snowfall totals for the upstate.
  15. Game over for snow in Upstate SC? Looking more and more like it. Once it trends this way it usually doesn't trend back this close to the event.
  16. Hoping that trend continues so more of upstate SC can cash in. Definitely different seeing a continued southern trend. Use to it trending North, but still plenty of time for that to happen unfortunately.
  17. I'll take that bet. Living in upstate SC for 30 years can make one quite the pessimist. I've even come up with my own formula to determine snow amounts. Take whatever is being modeled/forecasted and cut it in half. Take that total and cut it in half again. Whatever is remaining from that total, assume at least 1" of it will be either sleet, freezing rain, or cold rain. Be happy if what's left of the total is snow.
  18. A "storm" that will live in infamy around these parts and one I will remember forever. Biggest forcast fail I can remember for this area. Even Chris Justus and John C were on air on WYFF for that day guaranteeing 8-12" of snow. Then we end up with sleet and freezing rain.
  19. #Florence is getting OWNED by wind shear! Potential it might be an elevated Tropical Storm at landfall... Time to stop shoveling coal into the hype-train; wind, surge and precip will be dangerous, but now significantly lower with this storm:
  20. Sitting at 32 with rain/freezing rain. Nice light glaze on the vehicle when I left work a few minutes ago. Roads still appear fine.
  21. SC Governor delaying decision to evacuate. I don't get the impression they will at this point.
  22. Western panhandle of FL appears to be the safest spot. Can't really escape into GA either.
  23. Through hr 78 it looks like the center is just to the SW of Jacksonville. For reference, the 0z run had it sitting off of the Jacksonville coast.
  24. Definitely west of the 0z run through hr 72.
