Hang in there.  Flurries here, then nothing for a bit.  Now light snow.

Thanks Ernest!   I know we are going to get something when Ernest T Bass speaks up!

Still quiet in Mooresville.. ;)

37.9/28

It’s certainly taking its time. Did notice the wind picking up some, at least compared to a few hours ago.

Seen alot of snow in my time..from the late 70's as a kid then early 80's and esp the Jan 88 bomb. I have never seen flakes this big..ever! Splattered on my phone and covered half of an S8. Literally half of a dollar bill.

Left Landrum several hours ago and it was pouring snow and drove up 85 and it was rain and freezing rain.  Finally switched over an hour ago and it’s piling up quick.  Hope the HRR will be good to me till around 6AM and a nice snow is on the ground - Doubt I’ll sleep tonight until I hear the sleet coming down in which I’ll cry myself to sleep - Haha!

It's definitely coming... watching the radar.. When it does, it ain't stopping for a while.  This is a wall of precip.  Hello El Nino.

Sweet lol. We are getting a mix of everything I think - sleet snow and freezing rain.

NW of Statesville toward Stony Point

Light snow you can definitely see in the last few minutes, but nothing impressive yet

Finally feel comfortable saying the snow is starting to make an appearance here by Mt Holly.  Looks like white rain but it’s flakes and they are slowly getting bigger and picking up in intensity.  Hope to look just like Doppler here in the next 30 min, standing outside in some heavy stuff.

absolute parachute flakes sailing down here... some of the biggest flakes i've ever seen. Seem to be having trouble accumulating though as we're still at 33.. got about 1/2 inch on the grass and elevated surfaces.
