Have you mixed with sleet yet or have you remained all snow?

Mixed with some sleet for about 20 minutes at most, but then back to all snow. Fine small flaked right now

Heaviest sleet I've ever seen here over the past ten minutes. Literal downpour! I can't wait for this to switch back over to flakes. Please! emoji56.png

No doubt. When that happened here today is was extra large flakes then BAMN super heavy sleet.

My temp/dew has dropped to 22.8/22.6.

7.5" on my back upper deck table.

I've not seen any sleet yet.

Snow has tapered a bit.  Real fine and light here at 10:27a.  

 

Same here. Right at 7 and tiny tiny flakes.

Great on missing the sleet, so far. The last 45 minutes here was heavy sleet mix. I think that minus sleet during that time, would have gained over an 1". 

Also, it was 23.1 at the height of the heavy returns around 8am

What radar station do you guys use for this area on RadarScope? I’m using Greenville Spartanburg, but nothing seems to be really good. The returns have hardly matched what I’m seeing from the sky 

I flip back and forth between GSP and MRX. The mountains block both and the SW corner of the state may as well be in a radar hole during snow events like this.

The mountains block the radar beams.  There’s not a good radar to properly analyze what is happening over the mountains.

Went to town, roads were a mess when I first left but the big plow trucks finally got to 209 when I headed back.  Russ Ave in Waynesville was a wreck an an 74 wasn’t too hot either.  Had heavy snow driving up into the mountains at the house but that must of been the tail end of this opening act as it’s just flurries now.  Whiteout conditions due to wind down low around the pastures with no wind break when I first left.  6-7” readings throughout, 6.5” on my deck rail that is serving as my “official” board. Want to make a run at a foot if this backside stays juices and swings through just right but I think 8-10” looks like a strong possibility at least. 27 over 25.5 currently here.

Have changed over to sleet now in Valdese. Went out and did 7 different measurements we got just over 6 inches here in Valdese(Burke County).

So I'm happy now we see how much sleet and zr we get. Fun times for sure.
