Fab February Banter

Recommended Posts

The local weather geeks have been telling you all along what to expect. You live 6 miles South of I-85.

I sit 6 miles North of I-85 where it is currently 28 and cloudy.

WYFF have been very consistent saying this is going to be a problem North of I-85.

Actually Sat and Sun, atleast through 6 o'clock news last night, Cessarich and Justice were saying whole viewing area would start as snow , then quickly change to sleet and freezing rain!

This AM , was the first time I heard 85 N, from any of them! Now with partly cloudy skies, the late February sun angle FTL

Virgin poster here. :) Hope everybody's having fun, or will be soon!

 

It's too bad I live two miles south of I-85, huh? When I decided on this house, I totally expected this day to come: a soaking, cold rain while two miles away gets the storm of the century. *le sigh*   :maprain:  :lmao:

Yep. Yesterday I was preparing for a possible significant ice storm and this morning it looks like minimal ice and a lot of rain so I am a little disappointed, but that happens around here. At least I will be warm and have power. Congrats to all those getting sneet and those in the ice bulls eye I hope it's not too bad. Onwards!

No, I don't want an ice storm if it means losing power. You don't know me. So stop being a jerk and saying you know what I want.

You are going to be bitching if you get rain. Your power lines are underground. Hell if I was were you were, I would have a blast in that ice storm knowing my power lines were underground.

12z NAM gives Waycross snow and me, nada. This winter officially sucks monkey balls.

Yeah. Have been patiently waiting for my flurries Wednesday morning. Hoping the cold air moves in faster than expected

or that second round comes later than expected. 09z-12z instead of 06z.

We do have a chance down here? The wind is ENE , and not warming as quickly as it should with sun and dp of 1! I think precip may be here by 2, just looking at ATL radar? Guess we could wetbulb , but that newest NAM looks amazing, even counting sleet as snow, that's a good bit S of anything I seen

Really excited about the 6-10" of snow/sleet I am about to get hammered with according to DT. :weenie:

 

:lol:

 

Maybe 3-5" or 2-4".  I'll be happy with that.

 

 

hahaha agreed. I wouldn't mind crow for dinner.

Yup, I would definitely be glad if DT was on point with this one.  Unfortunately, I give it less than 5% probability. :(

 

 

I am sitting here watching the radar on the edge of my seat, My girlfriend thinks I am borderline psycho for constantly being on here tracking these storms. She, in turn, is staying at her place in Burlington the next few nights lol.

Sounds like there's ground truth snow in Mt. Airy and Reidsville now. :)

I'm so sick of looking at dozens of model maps that contradict each other in either subtle or significant ways.  It's way past that point.  I'm just going to look at the radar and out the window until this is over.

 

Edit:  I meant to post this pointless comment in the banter thread instead of obs.  Thanks for moving it, jburns.
