Why is it that warm air can get in here and lower our snow totals but cold air never makes it over the mountains in time? Is it simply that the warm air has an easier time rising over the mountains and funneling in?

Depends on the setup but that feature nearly always shows up in the models with CAD setups and it’s not simply a snow hole in AVL but a stretch of lower totals extending the entire river valley from Madison into Buncombe. Makes sense, all the cold air is dammed up along the eastern escarpment, so any access to the warmer air west of the Apps would cut totals. 
 

Obviously the higher elevations in this region still do well.

Evidently he's been getting lots of people asking that? I mean it's an impactful storm, but obviously not even close to '93.

Lol everyone puts every storm up against 93. I mean most of the civilians who are mostly interested in a once in a lifetime storm.

This is just an amazing graphic to me from NWS GSP.  In Hickory, NC, still 48 hours out from the event, they forecast a greater than 90% chance of 5+ inches of snowfall from this upcoming event.  I don’t think I’ve ever had a floor that high, since they began producing these probabilistic graphics.

By the way, we’re heading to Black Mountain.  For many reasons:

  • Happy wife, happy life.  =)
  • Cousins with whom the kids can play in the snow.
  • (Who am I kidding?  I will also be playing in the snow.)
  • Pretty much guaranteed snow for the duration of the event.
  • 8-inch floor, according to the graphic posted above.
  • Monumental snowstorm experience.

Let’s do this!  Can’t wait!

Just locked in the trip, driving up the 10 hours to the cabin tomorrow afternoon. I have never seen so much consistency for a single location - the last 6 GFS and last 3 or 4 Euro all printing 14+. I'll take 1/2 of that an no power outages and be super happy!
