  1. The Cataloochee webcam is worth checking out at the moment; for your convenience: http://www.resortcams.com/webcams/cataloochee/
  2. Thanks for the reports; I was wondering what was going on with the precip to the south.
  3. That don't look good Seems like flooding is becoming so frequent we are getting numb to it; I think the City of Asheville is considering giving up on the soccer fields at Azalea Park because they are getting flooded so often. The big wet thread in summer of 2013 was pretty epic.

    Congrats! Nice to have another member of the Pack in WNC.
  6. Yep but then expect the typical below freezing temps in April to put a hurt'n on all the trees and flowers.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    Don't worry all the teleconnections will set up perfectly this year just the "in winter" part of it will be fail.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    I am certainly enjoying it. Last year in this neck of the woods the warm week in February was pretty much it for any extended warm weather until May. Come mid-April when the wind is gusting to 40 mph and the snow flurries flying I will be wishing for February weather.

    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2019

    I have heard theoretical physicists claim if they can reconcile the theory of relatively and quantum theory they will have the answer to everything. Well, if that is accomplished I want to see them use that information for a dead on accurate winter forecast for the southeast. Kind of looking cold and potential for frozen precip in NC the 2nd week in Feb to me per the GFS run I just looked at. But I guess I didn't see what I saw.

    January 2019 Observations

    That sounds fabulous; a bit nicer than the 14 degrees IMBY this morning.
  14. I ended up with 3" out of the December storm; totals killed by sleet. Not complaining because I like my trees in the upright position. My wife and I drove a bit up Hwy 276 out of Pisgah Forest after the storm; was a bit stunned at the number of trees that came down.
  15. Back when I worked downtown and had a view to the south; frequently during NWF snow you could see that the sun was shinning to the south in the direction of the airport. That certainly could cause significant discrepancies. However, it has been mostly sunny here today and didn't expect such a large discrepancy.
