Interesting to watch the guidance move the low track further S the past couple of days.  I  suppose if that trend holds through the rest of the work week we have a chance of some minor accumulation here in the Valley. 

Yeah this could end up surprising a few people especially if it comes in overnight.

GSP certainly sounds optimistic. Guess I need to go get some more salt.

The bigger story will likely be the cold temps behind the front. The temperature gradient along the front looks particularly strong, as do the post-frontal winds. Temps will remain above freezing even in high elevations most of Friday night, crashing rapidly Saturday morning; profiles quickly become supportive of snowfall across the mountains, and look particularly good for a NW Flow event, which could continue into early Sunday. The elements do look like they are lining up: strong cold advection, strong NW winds, relatively deep moisture with a Great Lake component, and weak surface instability. Accumulating snow certainly looks possible for the NC/TN border areas at this point. Winds could easily reach advisory criteria for the mountains if not portions of the Piedmont in the wake of the front; based on current Bufkit profiles and raw model gusts, High Wind Warning may be warranted for some of the mountains as well. The main caveat currently is whether the low track will continue to trend one way or the other as we approach Friday night.
