2019 Mountains and Foothills Spring/Summer thread

Recommended Posts

Just mother nature’s way of giving the middle finger to all of us who talked shit about the crappy winter since we are all ready for Spring now.

this is crazy.  i'm actually thinking "when is this winter going to end", only because I know i'm going to be tempted to do another road trip!  I had seen this on TT, but started getting excited when I saw Met1995 post about it and Moto too.   Some other things that are lining up.  my iphone weather app had snow icon for Saturday in Suches, Ray has been talking about it, and now WXSouth.  Sheesh.

I'm so jealous of you guys, feels like we never had a winter here in the upstate and now we're looking at temps 10-15 above normal for the forseeable future after a "coolish" Sat. Been nice the past few days and mornings but the heat is coming.

don't be too jealous, I haven't had snow imby in NE GA since Dec 2017.  I did see snow few weeks ago heading through the upstate, but not till after Greenville.   The good thing is, the older i get, the quicker summer comes and goes . (but also i guess winters seem quicker too on the other hand, but I'll worry about that next year).

It’s been a constant moderate to heavy rain for the past 7 hours here and looks like we got a couple more hours of it. Streams are already out of their banks.

3.34 here in Dahlonega GA.  2.33 so far on Beech Mtn with a max wind gust of 52.
12z 3k NAM sure is bullish on the snow Saturday.

What is it showing? Haven’t heard anymore talks on snow since a few days ago.

Here are the Kuchera and 10:1 maps.   3k Nam is very bullish on backside moisture swinging down through northern Al and then GA and then up through western NC.  Basically around the base of the ULL.  In my opinion I think elevations over 4k are good for 2+ inches while everyone else will struggle with surface temps for accumulations.   We are getting closer to the wheel house range of the 3k NAM (inside 24hrs) so it can't be ignored despite the rest of the other models looking BLEH.

Backend just moved through here. We’ve had a lot of heavy rain this morning. Really hope that secondary band don’t get going like some models have hinted at.

Now 4 inches of water dumped IMBY and still pouring.  More inches of rain than I had snow for the December 18 storm.

City of Asheville was in the middle of spending big bucks on soccer fields that I am sure are or will be under water yet again:

Looks like it's doing exactly that.

i'm watching this myself for my little meteorologist in my family Moto, so please keep updating, and if you could slide that map over toward highlands or maggie valley a bit i'd appreciate it!  I guess i could look myself, but you are the man. and yes. about 3.5 inches of rain between midnight and noon here.  crazy.  clay creek falls is wild.    Question, is this going to be convective type snow with the big fluffy flakes? heck its even fun to get under small hail in these setups if this is that kind. 

Also was orig thinking if we go anywhere we'd go tonight, but timing wise Ray seems to indicate the snow levels will be dropping more Sat evening.

18z Nam showing a great possibility of flakes flying starting tomorrow.  Im not really sure about accumulation but I will say that some spots may see some prolonged snow through the day into Sunday morning. The Nam is much more bullish than the GFS.
