Theres a minimum over the airport/belmont area on the GSP maps. I think I saw .5 in Belmont but 2" around Dallas/Stanley and down around Crowders Mtn.

Two fold IMO, you had 1” up there before we started accumulating and then we were the unfortunate ones to get in between bands.  Wish we could get back to the rates and flakes from when I went on my breakfast run.

Over 3” in Roxboro, you can tell ratios are improving as the flake size has decreased but rates are up and vis is down.  Temp stil 31.  Going to head back to Oxford for lunch, may jog down to Wake for the afternoon.  Roads are getting a little tricky for 2wd vehicles.

I took a little walk around my neighborhood. This is looking up the driveway of my neighbor down the road...

Roads and driveways appear to all be covered. We have about 2" out here thus far. The flakes are getting a bit smaller but still coming down in buckets. It's pretty crazy. Wonder what we'll end up with.

Is your profile location correct?

Weird it won't stick to roads here. We've only been all snow for an hour or so though.

i've been all snow for almost 2 hours.  My concrete driveway turns white when the snow gets heavy but nothing on my neighborhood road.

Over 4.5 inches of snow now here in Valdese(Burke County NC). And still coming down fully expect to break the 5 inch mark and maybe close to 6 inches. All the models had us here in lee side of the foothills getting very little and now the tables have turned got to love it.

Wow, you must have much better rates than I have been getting in Hickory.  Is that a grass measurement?  Or are you measuring off something flat?

At 10:00 AM, I measured right at 3 inches.  Since snowfall began shortly after 3:00 AM, I'm therefore averaging slightly less than 0.5 in/hr here IMBY.  Steady light snow continues to fall, and by radar trends it doesn't appear to be letting up any time soon.  I originally thought it would end around by noon, but the change to a N-S orientation may delay the end of this event for me.  It's currently 29.5 over 28.

Just measured 1" on patio table and 1.5" in the grass here in Simpsonville. Will likely hit 2.5" after this thing fully pivots and redevelopment occurs
