The snow is melting off the trees now. Even though it is still snowing. 

The snow here would be melting off the trees too, if only trees grew 5000 ft tall.

Looks like the banding features are setting up as happens with a departing coastal system.  Looks like one in the SE Triad region (and my house) and another one through Surry County foothills.  Look for that one to backbuild a little and be slow to depart.

Have you thought about putting your house on stilts? 500 meters high should do the trick 

No good.  We'd just warm nose at 700mb.

Significant jump with the latest hrrr for some of us to get a nice dusting-1/2" of mood flakes.  I received a nice dusting so far.  It's sticking to the trees and looks so picturesque and festive.  Enjoy it if you get in on the action!

Absolutely ridiculous for early December. Looks like even parts of the Florida panhandle saw some snow. I believe that makes all 50 states that have seen snow fall (and even Mexico) and its not even winter yet. That doesn't happen most winters let alone early December. Does anyone know what's the earliest that all 50 states have seen snowfall?

These pics are from northern Escambia county (North of Pensacola). Reports of 2" in that area of the state!

Just south of JBurns I have 1/2" of sloppy cement.  Typical slop storm.  Now if we can get some pretty flakage in a couple of hours with a heavy dusting to 1/2 to make it a little more beautiful...

That would be 1/2" of "sneet". You may have doubled my total. 

Congratulations to all who scored. It just wasn't my turn.

still snowing moderately in Greenville - temp holding steady at 34

Excellent. Hope it doesn’t melt before I get home. Planning to fly my drone over downtown Greenville today and Asheville tomorrow. Should get some great shots if it doesn’t melt.

Atlanta storm. Deep south special to start the season. Congratulations everyone who got this one. Really a great way to start then winter.

Yeah a great way to start the season for most.  I bet a lot of people saw there climo snowfall with this one storm.

So which model it this thing the best?  Canadian long range and RGEM short range?

The 3km nam seemingly did best in the short range and with the warm nose. Long range I would say CMC and UK did the best picking up on the track closer to the coast and totals further inland. Euro was late to the game as was the GFS.
