Just checked the rain gauge. 2.25 of mostly compacted sleet just south of South Park. Mostly ZR now with some icing occurring. A few limbs creaking with the wind.

Do we think a deform band will form and swing through? Or will dry air take over soon?

Has been sleeting since 9:30 am and looks like maybe 2.5 to 3 inches of snow and sleet.  22 degrees and winds are picking up. NE at 20 mph and quite gusty at times.   Have had no noticeable freezing rain in this area so hoping for the best with the power!

Starting to hear some popping in the neighborhood… 30.8 with freezing rain. Hoping we don’t go dark. I’d say we’re at .25” so definitely looking like we’re on track for more than forecast 

Good luck - we’re flirting with 32 here but I think power loss is a foregone conclusion given the frequency of interruption at this point. Fingers crossed we torch just enough before the worst winds move in.

Most of the CLT lucked up big time with this system with mostly snow and sleet. It's seems to be aside from Ballantyne, Mint Hill, extreme South Mecklenburg County gotten snow & sleet in the city. Those areas are covered in sleet.  Whereas, Union County, Anson County, Chester County, and Lancaster County seems to have seen the majority of the freezing rain accumulations in Metro Charlotte.

Local Mets seem to think so Brad P said models don’t show it but there will be one at some point this eve

I think a deformation band of heavy snow will swing through CLT around 4-6PM as the back end with the ULL.

The dry air is causing evaporation pockets in precip at CLT and west Charlotte right now until 2. I'm seeing flurries with sleet again at my place.  Another wintry mix band is going to slide in again soon.
