    GFS showed snow for eastern NC, and ICON shows it, too. First popped up today on the models, so it might have a legit shot.

    Lol Brick gave it the kiss of death. Models will slowly catch on to the colder pattern and fantasy snow should start showing up. Probably some big dogs here in the next few days IMO

    The picture of the models that you was referring to in the Feb forum says it’s valid for feb 3. So isn’t that for next weekend into Monday for your area? Just curious, I haven’t a clue how to read the maps

    That is showing snow fall for the whole week. The snow in eastern NC should be from Monday/Tuesday.

    Because the GFS and ICON showed a possibility, and it is inside 5 days. Why not?

    Well Rah NWS did issue a HWO for a light event, their discussion states possible light zr since it's a classic cold chasing moisture and drying aloft to inhibit dendritic growth

    Well, with the way things are looking here on the models, we should be happy if we see any snow from this. Nothing else showing up on the models for here.

    There wasn't even but one or two runs that supported snow from this. Never was a threat to begin with I think except a few flurries.

    Definitely a legit chance of snow flurries from Rocky Mount to Roanoke Rapids and points NE into the northern tidewater. Can't rule out some light snow accumulations in areas like Edenton and Elizabeth City Tuesday morning. I guess a few token flakes are possible but unlikely in the Triangle.

    This should be a decent hybrid NWFS event for the mtns. Some of the higher peaks will go over 6 and most of the northern mtn counties will rack up 2 to 3. Even the valley floors could skim a inch down in Asheville. They have some extra synoptic features to play with for this event. And its those features that have a 20 to 30 percent of spitting a flake down here and as Webb alluded to much higher chance into the northern coastal plain.
    This is just a way to pass time early this week, never was expected to be a big deal.

    Brick always brings the magic when he starts threads:

    Latest from RAH for tonight:


    PoP has also been increased into the chance range for rain/snow
    showers for tonight, given the expected development of a band of
    scattered to numerous showers along the Arctic front. Measurable
    liquid equivalent amounts are expected to remain very light,
    however, with a few hundredths of an inch or less anticipated. Any
    resultant snow amounts would be even lighter - perhaps a scattered
    coating on car tops, etc, across the nrn Piedmont, where
    precipitation intensity and likelihood of snow will be greatest, for
    an hour in any given location. Winds will also increase with the
    frontal passage, with following CAA/mixing and surface gusts between
    25-30 mph.

    If only lol. It's snowing moderate to heavy now in Boone. That's the band that will break containment. It's upper air driven and not just associated with NWFS that will hit them latter tonight. Watch it on radar and it should re appear just west of Statesville, Mocksville. That's are only chance

    Looks like a solid dusting fell across the Triangle, Wake Forest got the best of the band

    Another overperformer in my book. 2 in a row.
    Covered everything up here at work very well. Hopefully we can keep the streak going for the next event.
