GSP not impressed at all..The only warnings in the south are in East Tennessee..lol

They’re gun shy on hyping winter weather after all their busts in the upstate. We really need a different representative for the 828.

You guys think the Morganton/Valdese areas of Burke could see warning criteria of at least 4 inches?

May be in a precip minimum and could get only an inch or 2 but if you buy the NAM 2 to 4 inches seem a good bet.

GSP says WWA for area. Saying 1-3 in mtns with locally 4. 1-2 with locally 3 in foothills 
I think after getting snakebit when they issued the WSW's a couple months ago, they're thinking is they can always upgrade the wwa in the morning. Can't say that I blame them.

Hello Mnt & Foothill peeps! I see we’re in the pre storm boom or bust excitement phase. I really like the look of this system. In GSP’s afternoon disco they speak of the system currently in Texas being better organized than modeled. Certainly won’t be surprised to see some places upgraded overnight. As usual there will be over & under performers. Enjoy the now though because it’s a big part of the fun! Good luck to all of you.

Not buying the anti-foothill guidance. I’ve not encountered too many overrunning events that didn’t score well in the foothills counties.

Our heaviest rates will be from around noon to 3. It should be flate out putting it down then. The onset for most will be from 8 to 10 am tomorrow morning.  Lingering snow showers should persist through the evening hours especially along the boarder counties especially as the cold air bleeds in

Raysweather with one of the worst forecasts I have seen on Facebook... He is usually better than that 
He's decreased in quality and accuracy significantly since I moved up here in 2015. Used to check his page frequently now I rarely look at it for more than a laugh.

Not sure what to make of gsp anymore. 

 

Although,  the heavy cloud cover here is very concerning,  especially since it's still 50 degrees!

Yeah, the models show 1-2" per hour rates during that time. The 18z gfs was a nice improvement over the 12z.

Meh you may mix very early but tonight things will really cool off a lot. You know we are usually warm before a good snowstorm.  I even saw some blue sky today.
