    Well, the Daytona 500 is finally over. Now the NASCAR season can begin!

    1.21" on Saturday, 1.48" so far for this week long deluge. Low was 32 overnight before the clouds moved back in.

    RAH Friday afternoon still hints at the slight possibility of a mix Tuesday night. In general, this pattern will favor high-chance and even likely PoPs during much of the long term period, with QPF estimates of 1-3 inches of rain from Sun through Fri. The best chance for any pause in this wet pattern may be late Monday into early Tuesday as we briefly see some drying in the wake of early Monday's cold fropa. Otherwise, temps should be warm enough this entire period to preclude any P-type concerns other than rain, except for a "very brief" period Tuesday night when forecast soundings over our western Piedmont counties suggest it may be barely cold enough for a "very brief" period of wintry mix with the rain. Of course we'll be evaluating that potential during the coming days, but for now, expecting most if not all rain as p-type during this time.

    If you add up all the percentages of rain for the next week, we have like a 740% chance of rain!!!

    RAH this afternoon - 2/12/19 Monday looks to be dry as strong continental high pressure moves across the upper Midwest and ridges in from the north with temperatures near normal. This high will slide into a better position for classic/hybrid damming by Tuesday morning as isentropic lift begins and a feed of moisture originating from the Gulf of Mexico advects into the western Piedmont. With the cold air in place, winter P-types could become a problem early Tuesday in the climatologically favored areas. Stay tuned.

    Going to have to work hard today to get 60, let alone the forecast 67. Currently a dreary 48. Picked up 0.29" yesterday.

    Made it to 77 today after yesterday's 79. Can't believe the number of moisture starved cold fronts we've had this winter. I guess that's the result of so many Lakes and App cutters. I'm ready for a good old fashion stormy cold front or a decent coastal Low to track, snow or no snow!

    32 last night, 59 today. Must be a dry rain coming in tonight. That's a whole lot of time for a little bit of rain. Tonight Rain likely, mainly between 7pm and 5am. Cloudy, with a low around 44. North wind 3 to 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

    Post Arctic front snow Tuesday, Jan 29

    NWS Atlanta‏Verified account @NWSAtlanta 50s51 seconds ago A cold front will bring the potential for accumulating snow to portions of north Georgia on Tuesday. Black ice will be possible even in areas with little or no snow. Significant uncertainty remains, so stay updated to the latest forecasts! #gawx

    That setup above reminds me of some of the great snowstorms/Nor'Easters we used to get on the Outer Banks in the 70's and 80's.
