  1. Fox Weather coming this year along with a new streaming weather service from The Weather Channel https://www.theatlantic.com/culture/archive/2021/07/fox-news-weather-channel/619408/
  2. GSP: THE ARRIVAL OF THE COLD AIR WILL RAPIDLY BRING SFC TEMPS INTO THE 30S AT HIGH ELEVATIONS BEGINNING LATE EVENING; FREEZING LEVELS WILL CONTINUE TO FALL SUCH THAT MIN TEMPS REACH THE MID 20S IN HIGHER ELEVATIONS IN THE MORNING (MIN TEMP RECORD AT AVL DOES NOT LOOK TO BE IN JEOPARDY). STILL LOOKING FAIRLY IMPRESSIVE IN TERMS OF A NW FLOW SNOW EVENT, WITH THE MAJOR "CLASSIC" INGREDIENTS LOOKING TO COME TOGETHER TO PRODUCE ACCUMULATING SNOW. THE STRONG WINDS AND RAPID COOLING OF THE MIXED LAYER WOULD SUGGEST ABOVE-AVERAGE SLRS, AND A NUMBER OF SOURCES STILL DEPICT A SMALL AMOUNT OF INSTABILITY. STILL THINKING WE WILL SEE A GREAT LAKES CONNECTION; ALWAYS TRICKY TO FIND GUIDANCE THAT PRODUCES BELIEVABLE QPF IN THE UPSLOPE AREAS, BUT FEELING PRETTY GOOD ABOUT SNOW TOTALS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES IN MOST OF THE NW FLOW ZONE, WITH ISOLATED 3". QPF TAPERS OFF AFTER 18Z, BUT AT LEAST SOME FLURRIES MAY LINGER INTO THU EVENING.

  4. Exactly. Knowledgeable ones knew yesterday it would bust in many areas This type of bust is really a huge blessing. Our lineman brothers in Virginia especially Southern Virginia cooperatives are still slammed from last Friday night with over half of the customers in Southside Virginia cooperative still out
  5. Anyone wishing for ice should think twice Southside Electric Cooperative in southern Virginia this morning still has 77% of their customers out this morning 48 hours after the event. Their area was torn up by ice Our lineman need a break. They work harder than any NFL Lineman ever does. Jacking and restringing wire and establishing equipotential grounding zones around the lineman to protect them from generator back feeds is tedious hard work. https://poweroutage.us/area/state/virginia

  8. Epic winter still in progress this year.
  9. GSP 6 to 10 inches upslope snow inbound in mountains with higher amounts over 4500
  10. Blue Ridge Propane does a good job but I don’t think they cover your area

  13. You are spot on On Friday the MJO gave signs the implied pattern was going to unravel Yes it is very disappointing however it has been a great run of winter since 11/29 in western NC with 41 days of general snow cover above 4500’ and already 60” this season in places. Far better than last year
  14. Our good winter for snow in the NC High country continues. Has been a generally good run for 48 days since 11/29 above 4500’
