GSP AFD:

 

THERE IS A PRECIP-TYPE WRINKLE AT THE   HIGHEST ELEVATIONS THAT DEVELOPS BY THURSDAY AFTERNOON, PERHAPS   THE RESULT OF DYNAMIC COOLING, WHEREBY A NEARLY ISOTHERMAL LAYER   IS SEEN ON FCST SOUNDINGS ABOVE 5000 FEET OR SO. IT WOULDN'T TAKE   MUCH TO BRING THE SNOW LEVEL DOWN TO WHERE WE COULD SEE A CHANGEOVER   TO A HEAVY WET SNOW ABOVE 5K FEET. SUSPECT IT WILL BE SNOW AT THE   SUMMIT OF MT MITCHELL BY THE END OF THE DAYTIME PERIOD. ELSEWHERE,   THE EXTENSIVE CLOUDS, PRECIP, AND COOL AIR MASS WILL KEEP HIGH   TEMPS IN THE MID/UPPER 40S.

You could make a very convincing argument over the past decade that the worst location for snow in NC is the Lee/escarpment. It sounds asinine given the CAD potential and higher elevation but dang. Downsloped on flow and eastward tracking upper lows. And many storms phase too late for us to be part of the fun. 2018 was nice but holy cow I don’t remember a time where we’ve been in snow poverty worse than this stretch of years.

The run for Boone since 2015 has been pretty crap outside of the 2018 storm which fell in an otherwise fairly unremarkable season.

The airport has recorded only 0.5" through January 31 which as best I can tell has never happened before. 2020 was close with only an inch, but before that you have to go way back to find anything similar.
