Funny you say that because that is what Rosman is basically classified as.

There's an area from far NEGA and the tip of SC that runs through much of WNC and ETN into Virginia actually classified as a temperate rainforest.  I thought a rainforest by definition receives 100" of rain equivalent annually, but I've seen information in several places that refers to that entire area as one.

Yeah could be. With our changing climate who knows but these localized areas around the mountains do get a heavy dose of rainfall. The micro climate around here is amazing. It really should be studied more.

From everything I have read all of the southern mtns in NC are classified as a rain forest.  Same with the north GA mtns and oconee county in SC. Here is an average rainfall map that shows it fairly well.

Thats an interesting map. A sharp cutoff in parts of Haywood, Madison, and Buncombe county. Its amazing the enhancement of the southern escarpment does for precipitation values.

Closer view of mountain counties. Just amazing the differences in only 50 miles from Asheville to Lake Toxaway:

I like this map more.. It shows a bit more of the upslope component on the Blue Ridge. I did think places from Lake Lure to Wilson Creek in Caldwell county would get a bit more than shown compared to places like Dysartsville to Taylorsville.

Back home. Looks like I missed a wild week last week. Rain, floods, rain, southern snow, tornadoes and severe storms in SC, rain, and got home in the rain. I've had over 7 inches of rain in the last 10 days. That's very uncommon here anytime of the year.

A little chilly in California but I don't think I saw a cloud the last 6 days we were there. First time in the Monterey area. Very pretty place.

Fun fact, Monterey is about the same latitude as Asheville (per Google Monterey is 0.005 deg North of Asheville).
