Maybe Met can give some insight but GSP is so confusing sometimes..Winter Storm Warning here but forecast in Western Mountains(Swain Graham  Haywood)is Rain /Snow mix through Tuesday with little accumulation 

That is something that I think is coming from the short range models.  As wncsnow mentioned they are showing some rain actually for some mountain areas.

Might as well at this point! LOL!
Everyone just pick your favorite and ride with it.

Ha! Ha! Yes. I don't hold out much hope for it, but I might as well ride something good until the ultimate 43 degree wind driven drizzle.

I wish the Friday threat was looking better. I hope we don't go into February with a shutout here but it's looking more likely every day. 

It's now been 731 days since our last snowstorm. We are getting close to our biggest streak since I have lived here.

Just thinking about this past week regarding the short-term guidance. Early this past week we had a chance of light snow with no accumulations and no Advisory. Got 2 inches with that one. Rain forecasted for Friday, received sleet and graupel with light accumulations in the Northern Mountains (yeah Buckethead). So we have a cold front crossing the mountains mid day with fresh cold air. I Look back SW to S Central and SE Texas and now there are Advisories down into Houston proper as the first shot of Artic airmass is coming colder and wetter than the models had been indicating. I'll be looking at satalite and radar from this point on and just glancing at the models. Good luck gang and here's to Monday and Tuesday filled with good surprises!

Yep. We've had snow this week already that really wasn't forecast.  The snow we got earlier this week wasn't even supposed to happen.  All the models had blanked several locations that did receive snow. Friday's surprise wasn't anywhere on the models and several of us saw some kind of frozen precipitation... Yeah I agree,  it's a nowcast time.

I'd say this is a good run for a large portion of the viewing area. Even an inch or two into Buncombe. sn10_acc-imp.us_ma.jpg

My god. I need like a 10 mile jog south. This must be how the Wake County crowd feels every single year.
