27 degrees, moderate snow currently, around 7" of snow. Am 15 miles NE of Greensboro. I really think I-40 north will easily see a foot plus before this is over.

Anybody getting worried about power outages in  the Triangle this afternoon?

Should be short lived as it changes to rain and starts melting the snow in the trees and power lines

Stay safe!

Just took a measurement here. 1.25 inches of all sleet on the car tops, 1 inch of sleet on the roads. It appears the 1/2 inch of snow I got last night has completely melted. Temperature has never went below freezing as it's 32.7 right now and everything is wet/slushy. 2.87 inches in the rain gauge for this storm:o, not counting what ice hasn't melted.

Woke up at 7:30. To light sleet. Now under a very heavy band. 75/25 snow/sleet. Huge flakes with the sleet pouring down. This is the heaviest snowfall/sleetfall of the storm!

Coating of ice on everything here.  Still 31/31.  Sounds like a little sleet mixes in with big bursts of precip. 

I'm actually a little concerned about the ice. Was surprised to see how much was on the trees. Plus the winds.

Same here. Thinking at some point we flip to rain?

1” in SE Wake.  Raining now, I think.

Thanks. My sister in Cary said she had about 6 to 7 inches about an hour ago.

Extremely Heavy Snow occurring right now in Morganton. I measured around 7:30 a.m. and had 8.5 inches. Would not be shocked to get over a foot at the current rate.

...VERY HEAVY SNOW AND SLEET TO AFFECT THE NORTHERN NORTH
CAROLINA FOOTHILLS AND NORTHWEST PIEDMONT THROUGH 11 AM...

National Weather Service radar indicated a band of very heavy
sleet and snow moving northward through the Interstate 40 corridor
in western North Carolina this morning. This band was producing
precipitation rates on the order of an inch per hour, and
significant and sudden additional accumulations will develop in
locations already impacted by heavy snow and sleet. Visibility
will drop to 1/2 mile or less in some areas. Winds gusting to 20
to 30 mph may accelerate the rate of downed trees, limbs, and
power lines and outages may become widespread.

Avoid all travel in and near the Interstate 40 corridor this
morning.

Yea there wasn’t that much when the sun started coming up.  Seems to have really added up quickly now though and yes very windy.
