    Searching for Fall

    Well, we had 64˚ for a low this morning in Saluda NC, so it's a start. However 64˚ with fog is still crappy fall weather. I noticed two things last night. The poplar trees are dropping brown leaves and the underbrush behind my house is fading in color. Also, the Katydids are even tired of this heat, they stopped their nightly calls last night completely.

    Getting worried about Hwy 176 Saluda to Tryon.. friends have told me that after the May flooding and slides it really will not take much to start the mountain moving again .

    Searching for Fall

    I think I spy a frost advisory for the upper half of Minnesota, a cool down can’t be too far away... hopefully!!! .

    Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    Looking at live radar and noticing a short line of storms forming in the gulf just south of the FLA/AL line. Is that a sign of more moisture? or is it of no consequence?

    Potential 1/17-1/18 threat

    If this pans out Saluda NC could do well, 6" - 8" might not be out of the question depending on direction of the up slope

    2017 Banter Thread #1

    2017 Banter Thread #1

    It’s the DWD icon, a German model.... and I think it follows the joke...” How many Germans does it take to change a lightbulb? ... One, we Germans are very efficient, and not very funny”[emoji43] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2017

    On another note... a few years back I read a topic that burger put together about model run times, what to look for on the panels, etc. I looked and couldn’t find it. ( though I might have been searching incorrectly ) If a mod could pin it as I can see site traffic jumping if the trends keep showing up and word of this potential ice/snow event hits the general populace...

    I think that was around the time if the GFS had snow in the 5-7 day range everyone just pointed and laughed, but if the Euro showed that same thing everyone on the boards ran out to buy a snow shovel.... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    March 11/12 Last Call For Snow Obs!

    A good 3 - 4 inchs up here in Saluda NC. I know I'm one of the lucky ones. I turn 51 today, but this time I didn't wish for snow on my birthday… Not after that 93 debacle Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
