2019/2020 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread.

Recommended Posts

The guys are coming to put up our Christmas decorations up tomorrow. Right on cue, let the Holiday season begin!

...A PERIOD OF ACCUMULATING SNOW AND VERY WINDY CONDITIONS WILL
OCCUR TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...

.In the wake of a vigorous cold front passage late today,
northwest upslope flow and associated moisture will spill into the
southern Appalachians from the west starting tonight. A fairly
extended period of snowfall and very windy conditions will then
continue through Monday and linger well into Monday night.
Snowfall accumulations will range wildly, from 1 to 2 inches at
many lower mountain elevations away from the immediate Tennessee
border to 3 to 6 inches in some places along the immediate
Tennessee line, to 6 to 12 inches at the higher elevation
locations above 4500 feet, especially in the Smokies.

with all this snow around can't we muster up an inch for KAVL, gheeeezzz

Heck I’m above 3000’ in Haywood in the Balsams and don’t expect more than an inch, if that.  Just not confident when it comes to flow snow here due to where we are at the base of a 6000’-er. The Smokies look to get smoked (cue drum roll), I’d love to be on LeConte tonight and tomorrow.  Met looks to do good though, along with Buckethead and Joe.

Wind has really picked up in the past hour or two.  You can hear the occasional roar across the tree tops when it really gets gusty.  And with that wind you can see the moisture getting transported and those classic snow shower looking clouds starting to form.

WWAs are up for the border counties.  It wouldn't surprise me if they eventually get upgraded to WSW's by tomorrow morning.  

 

Just upgraded us to a warning. 6 to 12 for us, over a foot higher up.

 

...A PERIOD OF ACCUMULATING SNOW AND VERY WINDY CONDITIONS WILL
OCCUR TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...

.In the wake of a vigorous cold front, brisk northwesterly winds and
associated moisture will reach the southern Appalachians starting
tonight. A fairly extended period of snowfall and very windy
conditions then will continue through Monday and linger well into
Monday night. Snowfall accumulations will be highly dependent on
elevation and be most significant on northwest facing slopes.
Most lower mountain elevations away from the immediate Tennessee
border will see less than 3 inches for the event as a whole, but
the higher ridges, above 3500 feet, will see 6 to 12 inches. A
few ridgetop locations will exceed 12 inches, especially in the
Smokies.

Hey y'all, new here. I'm hesitantly excited about this nwf event. Nwf is hit or miss for me but think it might squeeze out a couple of inches here. Hope y'all do well!

They were shutting gates on the Parkway around Asheville this afternoon.  Almost ran straight into one on my bicycle.

Yep, they closed the one off at our house midday-ish

Recently moved down the Mtn to Hickory and now living vicariously through each of you in this thread. Good luck everybody. I’ve never been more jealous and I’ll miss taking in the scenes this winter. Post plenty of pictures.

Surprised we are already clouded up thick here and getting a rain/snow/sleet mix on my end of Haywood.  Didn’t think it would be this quick.  Edit - and just liked that I can see stars and it’s stopped but can also see clouds starting to streaming back over.  Will be interesting what I wake up to and drive through on my way to Ohio tomorrow.
