This next storm is "more typical" with a phase between the northern and southern stream. Harder to forecast, but typical. Still unsure about which way to follow at the moment for western NC. Phase? No Phase?

Im definitely thinking phase and a more NW track but the northern stream can dominate and push everything south and east of us.

Warm nose over estimated for once in yesterday's storm in the southern foothills. Just changed over to sleet for a short time then back to all snow for the duration of the storm. No freezing rain at all. Usually the warm nose all ways wins out in these areas but wasn't as strong in this storm thank goodness.

Yeah you did really well. I went on a bit of a rant lol.

Really, there was a better surge of moisture at the beginning of it than I even thought. But still, some of those totals were way way off LOL.

I've lived in Cashiers and Glenville for the last 35 years and I can't remember a single time there were back-to-back weekends with big dog snowstorms. Has my memory just completely failed or is this truly anomalous?

Awesome photos @Buckethead , those are magazine worthy and really showcase how late the rut runs up here in the mountains. Weather, botanical and animal species, animal behavior, etc., we really an entirely different beast than the rest of the state.  This week is setting up to be something we talk about a while.

Thank you for the compliment, I do my best but honestly it's not hard to take beautiful shots here!

Don't remember specifically about consecutive weekends but winter of 09/10 was epically snowy.

I vaguely remember back to back ice storms in January 2000 in GA when I was little. No clue what happened in NC or if they were actually back to back weekends or just really close together.

Tapered off to flurries around 4 or so and they're still flittering around. We don't usually do much with NWF. Just crazy windy still, even in our little wind hole here beneath Seven Devils. 
Not sure exactly how much we wound up with because the wind blew it around but I measured between 9-11" in the yard with 15+" drifts.

Hunter Ward saying possible foot of snow for WNC Friday and Saturday, that it looks to be a longer duration storm than this last one, two pieces of energy with the main storm coming out of the Gulf across up the coast.

Yeah it looks like a great overrunning even for us. I'd be careful posting about us getting hammered here in the mountains in the main thread. You may get ran out lol jk.

09/10 we had several.  10/11 was great for the first half. I'm sure we had some back in the 80's and 90's too.

17° with moderate snow still falling. What a day! I'm around 18" for the storm total now, and if that wasn't enough I got to watch some rutting in the backyard a while ago.eeadc5a1743737f2417aaca2c4103964.jpg1d108470e5870ae7010fcda47d231dc8.jpg101c83d1e197ba2504573d9d0883f8e5.jpg

Buckethead, I am in love with all the pictures you post. You have got to be in one of the best spots in the southeast for upslope snow and just awesome wildlife. I follow you on Instagram as well. I need to come stay with you on one of these NWFS setups. Truly enjoy your pictures and posts.

I’ve got a buddy with an Airbnb up there if you are serious about it sometime, don’t know if it’s up as high as Buckethead though.

The door's open! Thanks for the compliment. Yeah, I think I do live in a great upslope spot. I'm less than a mile from the TN life right along the spine of the Apps.
