Anyone not feeling optimistic should look at Knoxville radar. Could be a good afternoon. 

Think this will be elevation dependent. Above 3k could do well like always but lower elevations are going to struggle with the warm surface. Its been snowing moderately for the past hour in Asheville but not sticking at all. The temperature isn't falling much either,

Morning guys, just wanted to say a couple things. Think this is going to be a decent event for some of you. It seems like some are apprehensive. Anyone closer to the 85 corridor has the right to be. If you’re up in the Mnts try to take emotions out of what you are or are not seeing. Use technology and synoptics. If your not the best model reader lean on GSP’s AFD’s they are a wealth of knowledge and have pretty much everything that’s been happening in print with the reasons why. With all the micro climates up there you’re going to have the usual over & under achievers. But don’t rush to judgment based on emotion. Use the tools at hand to understand what’s happening and why. Sorry for the rant & I hope all of you overachieve!!!

That French broad valley acts as a urban heat island a lot of times. Brutal. 

The snow has lightened up too

Hello, longtime lurker—can't read maps to save my life yet, so I'll probably mostly stay that way for a bit longer 'til I get a little more educated. Just wanted to share an obs for northern Transylvania—it was mostly a rain/snow mix since 10:00 a.m., changed over to all snow in the last 30 minutes. Coming down at quite a steady clip, hopefully it will start sticking soon and we can squeeze two or three inches out of it. 

I've greatly appreciated everyone's valuable insights over the years, it's tough to fight the temptation to refresh over and over again when you guys are tracking snow.

Crazy to look at that valley sometimes especially for those who don’t live around here. One of the driest places in WNC. Drive 25 mins either direction to find the wettest lol

Are you getting any snow yet?

I’m in lake toxaway and it’s been all snow science 9:00. Currently 33 and hammering. Got about a half and inch.

GSP just released a lengthy updated discussion which is worth reading. For what it's worth they've increased the forecasted snow amount imby from 2-4 inches to 3-5.

Basically, as has been noted, the heaviest precipitation hasn't arrived yet.

Yes the GSP AFD is a good read. Even yesterday the forecast was always for the best snow in the afternoon hours today. So, really nothing has changed. Always gotta have the cliff diving stage before the happy stage, lol!

Mountains are looking great! Lots of radar blind spots; so, let your heart not be troubled. New fine line on radar shows up Tennessee side. It's relevant over your way because it looks like the leading edge of more backed (northerly) winds to usher in / maintain cold air. Low level wave is just now developing in South Georgia. It's associated with the Mid South baroclinic leaf GSP mentions. New lift is evident on satellite coming out of the Mid South, back edge but it's for real.

As the Emperor says: Everything is progressing exactly as I have foreseen. Difference is this will end better in the Mountains than it did for the Empire, lol!
