Downtown? Down by Southpoint we keep struggling with sleet. But when it was snowing, it looked like it could be amazing.

Yeah, downtown. Sorry for not clarifying.

I have to say, as happy and as pleasantly surprised I am at the amount of snow we have gotten so far I really wish that everyone could have cashed in as well.  We have gotten blanked so much the last couple of years and it is such a crappy feeling so I hate it that our friends in the west, upstate and even the coastal plain haven’t gotten as much.   If I could share the snow I would!

Its all good!  Happy to take my 2-3" with sleet on top.  I get the feeling we'll be doing this a few more times this winter.  If we could take this setup &storm a month from now,  I think I'd be looking out the window to 12" or so....

Just popped in to see what's up. I know the southern 1/2 of NC is losing out to mix/rain but what's gone wrong in the upstate or mountains? They looked in prime spot to get crushed.

Yep, it's headed your way! Very heavy snow here now. Huge flakes, low visibility.

My friend up at/near Highrock Lake is reporting near Whiteout conditions ATM

'Wasted' an inch of moisture waiting on the CAD to kick in, then had too much mixing.  Climo was against us-take this setup in January, and we would be talking about this one for years..

The mountains are getting crushed but it seems like the upstate has not gotten as much as forecasted and I don’t think most of Charlotte did as well.  I know that it happens and the weather is really hard to forecast but I still hate it. I was happy for my friends in the west and the east last year when we had the Wake County snow hole but it is a crummy feeling so I hate it for them.

Just took this. Same deck as in my Feb 2004 shots. Not near as much this time but closing in on 8".

 

I’ve seen your video several times. We were too far north in Surry County and didn’t get a flake. 

I know that must have been something to see  

We’re closing in on a foot and it’s still coming down real good. I’m 57 and I have never seen this much snow this early in the winter season. 

We did get 11 in in Dec 18th 2009.

They are getting crushed. Multiple spots over 12 inches. I'm at 8 or 9 in Danville, VA with a lot more to come it looks

Several reports along southern escarpment of 17+ inches. Many many places over a foot including Asheville.

Seems to be doing a little better than I expected in GSO.  It will be interesting to see what the airport ends up reporting (close to where I used to live).  I’d expect INT to do better than GSO, as well.  It seems that the forecasted QPF has turned out to be fairly accurate.

My OBS: 64/OV. :lmao:
