I think that’s a pretty broad stroke of the paint brush. Areas north of the NC/VA border if it does primarily end up being fzra over sleet could have a crippling lights out type event. 

Sure, but in NC as always it looks marginal for most. Probably another deal where above 3,000 ft along the escarpment gets nailed and valleys get 33 and rain.

I just don't see how that much ice accrual occurs with temps in the 30-32 range. You really need 28-29 with a sustained cold air feed keeping it there for the well over 0.25 amounts.

The triad begs to differ. Was 30-31 most of event and was pretty significant.
