Saturday morning...

Here is a video I jsut cut this morning.

Well, we are at the day of the event. I have been analyzing radars from across the SE all morning, and this just simply remains an extremely tough call.

Modeling has been next to useless, as none of them have handled the overnight precip very well.

The radar back over Georgia looks fairly encouraging for North Carolina, at least for the I-85 corridor and points east. But we are going to see the northwest portion of the precip shield gradually erode with time as the drier arctic air moves in through the day. Again, such a tough call.

This morning, I am going to slightly pull back my snow accumulation totals just a bit. But, these are not drastic changes at all.

For the Charlotte region, I will go with 1-4". While it is tough to tell, the best chance for decent accumulations looks to be from a Gaston to Iredell county line eastward.

For the Triad, I will go with 1-2". However, from the Triad on to the northwest, a dusting looks possible.

For the Triangle, I am thinking 1-4". But, at this point I will defer to my colleagues in the Raleigh area for the forecast.

At this point, just watch the radars and see what happens.

Hi Matthew, at this point, would you say that the University area right around 1-85 is in decent shape to see 1-4 inch snows, or are you thinking it may be a litte farther north and east? Thanks, JJ
