Pay your bill.

Seriously though, if the winds pick up I can see some widespread possibilities of power troubles.

Yeah, wet in the trees freeze tonight winds in the am what could go wrong. The new addition is getting a built in whole house Genny.

im just trying to learn.  Does this mean that its basically gonna skip over me for the rest of the storm, or will it eventually swing through with higher rates?

Its part of the system pivoting to go NE eventually depends how fast it happens for you as well as anyone, but you look to get several hours of good rates

Got a decent dusting on the ground and roof now.  Hearing reports of mixing again off just to my west.  I don’t think temps are crashing as fast as we were lead to believe.

We all mentioned that yesterday about the temps but were blown off.   Especially widremann

Exactly. We should already have close to 3 inches because it has been coming down so hard. Instead...we barely have half an inch. Time is ticking.

As much as I would like to not take widre’s posts to heart I do because a lot of times he’s right.  Temps are a problem here.

I'm a bit perplexed at the snowfall intensity based on radar.  It looks like I should be getting heavy snow and I'm not.  However, it is snowing heavily in Cary.  Rates out this way are a problem.

you do realize we're only into an hour and a half of the event that's supposed to last about 8 more right? Temps will drop. they won't be increasing

You do realize we have temp issues right? Not going to snow forever.

I've got a friend who lives 12 miles west of me and their roads/driveways are covered.  Here mine are just wet.  What's the difference over 12 miles?  Surface temp?  Or my pavement just runs hotter (joking)

I don't think that some do.

I guess the last storm broke packbacker.. Flakes still arent huge here but getting bigger again. Roads cant keep up with rates here and lots of accidents have been reported

That line should only move more and more east correct?

I didn't think my ignore list could get bigger after last January. Yeesh.

The short range models were dead on with their precipitation depictions, at least for Wake so far...  pretty impressive, especially the NAM and HRRR.  

 

Tomorrow morning travel is going to be horrible. This stuff is going to freeze solid tonight.

Because if we were below freezing...it would be epic for us. We miss on every big storm. Yes...snow is very heavy...but hardly sticking.

While I would love to get what our fellow posters in Greensboro are getting this is still pretty freaking exciting.  Our kids have enough snow to sled so that’s what matters the most to me.  That being said, come on heavy snow for Wake County!!!

Sequence begins a few hours from now, just to show the continued press of cold air and upper level vortex energy. Note the mesoscale slp just offshore and approaches Hatteras. Could be heavy snow on the outer banks tonight.

I think some of those yellows and reds are melting aloft.  It’s snowing moderately here. Certainly no 1”/hr, even though it may appear that way on the radar.  Hopefully that changes in a bit.
