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

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

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.

Any chance I can get the SREF member that gives me 1.66” of snow to verify???
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

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.
