Well that didn’t last long, back to small flakes. About an inch in spots that stay shaded and half an inch in spots that don’t.  Good base for tonight though if we get some good rates and flake size.  Might hit that 2-3” forecast.

They're not kidding. It just started to hammer down here. Over an inch and counting.

Interesting setup today. There was accumulating snow (dusting to half inch) south of downtown near Reynolds and Biltmore but nothing stuck in West Asheville or downtown. Guess it was how the bands setup

Tomorrow I'm going with my dad to Banner Elk to look at some property, snow should be lighter then but hope to see quite a bit on the ground.

That was a good band that came through. I just measure 2 1/2 inches for a total today. Maybe add some more tonight. Temp is 23.1.

Maybe more around 12...hopefully about 4 to 5 more hours of snow

We had 3 impressive bands this afternoon in Maggie Valley. The first around 3 PM and a second around 4:30. That last band around 5:30 was the heaviest snow I've seen all winter. I measured 3 inches with those heavier bands and that is impressive considering all the melting we had in the early stages of the first shortwave. Good luck with round 2 overnight!

Bring on round 2, I’m down to 28 now, if I can get a repeat of round 1 with the lower temps I’ll be happy.

Radar is blossoming out in western Tennessee.  That should take on a more west to east orientation today.

Clear skies and a stiff breeze in the foothills. I miss those days of living above 3,000 ft. 1,100 just isn’t cutting it.

After a skiff of snow this morning in Boone, had very light snow start around 12:30 that did not accumulate. Around 5:50 got some decent snow for about 30 minutes that turned the ground white but not even an inch. Hoping for a miracle tonight, maybe we can hit 2” for the first time all winter. Can’t believe how poorly we’ve performed this winter specifically in Boone.
