December 8-10 Winter Storm Obs

Recommended Posts

Just walked outside and flake size way down, but intensity still up. Small, lighter flakes, and wind really ripping. Hopefully the CAD working its magic, but CC has me pretty down at the moment.

Haven't seen sleet on my side of town. All snow and coming down good

The heavy band did fire off a good bit of sleet for a few min, now mostly snow and coating everything quickly. Temps crashing hard.

Losing a lot of accumulation potential with the surface temp at 37.5 at the start and only down to 35.1 30 minutes later with moderate to almost heavy snowfall

You all are just getting started tonight. You have yet to get cold smoked by that western deform.

You WILL all get cold smoked by that western deform!

Watch out Mooresville and Triad friends! The CC is heading your way! NAM rules again.

I am south of you and it's still mostly still snow, maybe 80/20. And just because the CC moved away from Charlotte doesn't mean it won't retrograde back.

This obs thread is awesome! It’s great so many of us are getting clobbered and those lucky ones to witness thundersnow (I can count on one hand how many I have seen lol). The heavier bands here are snow/sleet. The moderate ones are freezing rain - getting a glaze and icicles on the trees now. What a great storm lol

And just like that, snow almost stopped, now 85% sleet.

Yep, laying here trying to go to bed and it just started hitting the wind on that NE wind.  4-5” of slop again incoming I’m sure, maybe backside on Monday will drop a couple inches of fluffiness.  Although part of me thinks it’s rate driven just like earlier tonight for me...

With initial precip in Mooresville for the past 30 min, it's been sleet/snow as the sfc temps are crashing with this hvy band.  It's whitened up the ground quickly.  Expected to transition to all snow soon as the column is completely cooled.  In fact, I hear less sleet and see bigger flakes mixing in now.  This is going to be a big hit.

34.3/31

Good to hear! Typically, once the warm nose (assuming that's what this is) wins out, it's not giving up its ground. However, maybe it's based on heavier returns and we can swing this thing back south with more dbs and CAD.

In my opinion, Its really going to have to snow heavily for 10 to 12 hours in order to get the accumulations that have been shown on the models and the local weather bureau's snow maps due to the warm surface temperatures. And as I type this the temperature has now fallen 3 degrees to 34.5 since the first snow flakes started falling 45 minutes ago.
