Jan 6-8 Winter Storm Observations

Recommended Posts

Went out to officially measure.  Everywhere on the deck measures 1.5 inches.  It's been snowing for roughly 1.5 hours, so I guess I can say that I've been getting 1"/hr rates here.  Now, how long will these rates continue?  If it does this til 6 AM (as many models seem to indicate), I'm looking at 8+ inches.  That's a big IF, though.

Where are you?

Unfortunately, the sleet line is working its way above me and beyond in the western Upstate. 1/2 inch may end being all I see. Would be quite disappointing, but Correlation Coefficient line is walking well north of 85 here.

Mostly sleet in Powdersville with snow mixing in , just another typical western upstate warm nose. The models always under estimate it by 20 miles or so but more importantly the duration of qpf is being exhausted

Mod sleet here in RDU. Think the rain portion of the storm is pretty much over, as we're dropped to 32 on my thermometer. Still haven't seen a flake as of 11pm. That said, we've only went through .15 qpf thus far, out of an expected 1.5 or so.

Been snowing beautifully and heavily for 2 hours, now. Everything covered. It's a shame it's not just a couple degrees colder, much of its melting as I've been at 33 the whole time. Have about an inch, but would have at least twice that with just a bit colder.

Definitely more snowflakes now, than I've seen yet. I think I am right on the edge of the all snow transition. I hope this line keeps jogging south, let us all cash in!

Lol... that's what I was wondering.  We have almost 5.5 here now should hit 8 before it all wraps up. Rainforest should hit double digits. 

Nice storm Franklin.  It's been impressive here since the changeover...everything covered well here now roads included

we have very similar conditions - I'm slowing inching towards 32

FFC cut totals. Still quite a bit on the NW side. Gonna have to rely on that deform band that has yet to form I guess.

im assuming that means snowfall and not snow accumulation. Because i've been stuck at 1.5" for over an hour and I don't see us getting another 3-4" of snow. Where is all this snow gonna come from ? Radar doesnt look good.

Hopefully you can cash in with no mixing.

Flakes starting to take over in Southpoint area, hopefully this is it for the rain and sleet. 

Curious where you are? Just turned to snow here as well (Huntington Ridge by SouthPoint). Temp still says 32.9 though.

Thanks for this. We don't get many obvs down here and my apartment and deck back onto dark woods (peering out my windows is pointless till daylight and I'm not hardcore enough to get out of my jammies and schlep down to the front parking lot only to see rain). Please keep 'em coming.

Right on 54 (Arboretum at Southpoint) just passed the Domino's if you're going away from 55.

This thing is racing. Looks like it'll be past me in about 3 hours or so. Quick hitter and just a little to warm for a big dog. Beautiful nonetheless.

western GA seems to be back-building on the Intellicast radar in the past 30 min
