Our in-house computer model has done an EXCELLENT job with these winter weather events over the past couple of years. It really nailed the December '05 ice event and the little event a couple of days ago.
It had consistently showed a period of freezing rain down into the Shelby-Charlotte-Albemarle corridor for many runs in a row....until the last run. The last run kept the whole Charlotte metro as rain. Tough to say whether it was a one-run hiccup or a trend at this point.
I wanted to throw this out there to let you know...I am sticking with my going forecast below for now, but that latest run of our model has certainly thrown even more doubt into the forecast.
