Flakes are flying again here on Beech.  Super light but flakes non-the-less.  Temp is down to 13 already.  Snow flurries and snow showers should max out towards sunrise then end quickly in the AM. 

Thursday night early Friday is looking...MEH.  

19° here in Deep Gap. No snow, but I agree about Friday. Was looking forward to seeing some snow, but now it looks like ZR. This winter has been a rollercoaster, to say the least.

It looks like your wind meter is having some issues. It’s been way off since about 8pm last night. Maybe it got blown over or something?

Good luck. This has been one of the worst winters in a few years.

I agree. But... there's another one coming in a little while. If we knew how they were going turn out it would really suck. I hope we never know for sure.

Yeah I agree. We did have that snow in December that was widespread.

Started as sleet here near Blowing Rock, and that keeps mixing in, but at the moment it is mostly or all snow and POURING. Road is already white.

Had a half inch overnight and another half with a burst around mid-morning. A slow rise in temps today to a high right now of 36.2. I only need another half to reach 40 for the year. The big storm coming the first week of April should put me over 50.

It’s getting to be pretty embarrassing regarding what they cancel school over these days. We had wet snow for a few hours mid day and they cancelled for Watauga. I think even Floridians would laugh at the calls they make now.

There's no strategy to making the call for delays/closing school.  Most districts have a protocol...but it's tough...like hunting crows at night.

Just had sustained winds of 49 for over four minutes with a gust to 64.  And it is absolutely pouring. 

Radar seems to backup what I’m seeing of the heavy rain having moved past down here but you are right, that wind is no joke.  Even in my protected spot it is howling.

Had a few house shakers here but oddly Boone is reporting calm. Really need to get an anemometer for the house.
