December 8-10 Winter Storm Obs

Recommended Posts

Just got back from getting fitted for golf clubs (I'm crazy). Left my house near uptown to 46 and cloudy. At Providence/485 it was 40 with a light wintry mix of rain, sleet, and a few small flakes. Now back home to 45 and sprinkles. Pretty weird.

why are parts of the Charlotte metro in the mid-40's?

Because the big cool down won’t start until later.  Take a look at noaa stations and watch the winds.  The models with more snow etc...show a big increase in winds in a short tone later tonight  pushing down the cool dry air.  It’s going to be a long slow fall to temps and we are right on the border if all goes as planned.  Don’t worry.  Yet at least :)

Any time precip gets heavy it is now mostly snow here. Temp down to 34

I know Rabun has a huge variation in elevation - do you know what yours is?

Right at 2,000 feet. Not even very far from the highway, so I’d assume the higher elevations and far northern end of the county are sticking good right now.

Even down here in Gainesville, Ga the temp has dropped to 37.  Dewpoint has fallen a couple of degrees as well.  Beginning to see the first signs of CAD here.

impressive - I'm now down to 38.3/37

That’s a pretty decent elevation. I am just 1800 and usually in a good spot for CAD events. Although my temp isn’t really moving, still at 36 lol

So your saying that at basically the NC/SC line(almost) you saw snow flakes? I'm shocked, but thrilled!

Down to 33.1 and piling up fast. Looks like daytime forecast of less than a half inch is going to bust big time.

You said you were in upper Clayton right?

The heavy precip did absolute wonders here. Dropped like a rock as soon as it moved in.
