All snow.  Temp down 3º in the last hour to 35º. Snow rate not near heavy enough to overcome the warm ground.

The ban hammer is coming for many now. 

 

37/35 here in downtown Greenville and still sleeting.

Almost there.. down to 38.3, dp 34.7 and falling.  Once the next batch of heavier precip moves should do it.

Yeah, same obs here. i think we're good once rates build in. Right now, I'm more concerned we get too much of a heavy, wet snow and lose some limbs than us missing this.

MBY in Winston, GA (just west of Douglasville, on Atlanta's west side) had sleet until 9am then shifted to heavy snow, now lighter but still falling.  That's per my husband's texts, because work has me up in Maine for a couple of weeks.

 

(The hotel staff here in Maine are amused at the Southerner guest getting accumulations at home before they get it here - 6" or so expected to start Saturday evening-ish.  And the preparation rush-crunch here is the backlog at the shops to get your snow tires put on, not buying up bread and stuff)

Under the lighter returns, we switched back to rain / sleet.

But now the snow's coming back down again. It's starting to accumulate rapidly again on the grass / roofs / car tops.

Down to 36 at hky airport and the snow is finally mixing back in w/ the rain. Very very wet snow, graupel-esk at the moment. This is about the best radar look i've seeen in a long time. The wave aloft over Texas is very amplified and will continue to push the stream of moisture NE. The wave over MN heading south will help to juice up the upper low on the backside and we may see some nice fluffy snow to end this thing tomorrow morning.

Rain and 41 in CLT.  Charlotte sucks for snow.  That is all. 

Congrats to the triad, foothills and mountains.  Hopefully we get a southern Piedmont storm this winter as well.

Patience, grasshopper. Changeover complete in ATL and almost complete in GSP. Radar returns very healthy to the west and 925s below 0C. This was never going to be more than a nuisance event for us anyways.

Snowflakes mixing in just a bit with the rain here off of Highway 73 on the Concord Huntersville border. Car thermometer is reading 36

We were pretty sure we saw similar.
