The 18Z HRRR from around 8pm to 3-4am is pretty insane for the Triangle to Hwy 17 cooridor.....heavy snow and winds gusting to the mid 30's well inland....please let it play out like it shows....

Snow picking up in intensity in northern Winston-Salem. Has been snow from the start. With the radar returns and the temps I could foresee a scenario where the western Triad gets an inch or two of accumulating snow. After this winter though I’m excited to even see it sticking to my porch.

Are any of the sustained winds approaching 35 mph or is it just gusts? I'm asking because I just looked up blizzard warning criteria for the heck of it, and was surprised it's not accumulation dependent. It's near 35mph sustained w/ snow falling/blowing with less than 1/4 mile visibility.

Edit: forgot to mention for 3 straight hrs

Its only gust sustained is in the teens...….so probably looking at heavy snow with 15-20mph winds gusting to 30-35 over the central coastal plains around 10pm-2am...certainly not blizzard conditions..assuming the models are right....

Raleigh NWS lowering snowfall totals. They still expect about an inch. Who was it on here that said Raleigh would get 3-5" ?
