5pm update....

>> Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Radar returns are certainly impressive upstream over Georgia and the Deep South. Sure looks like this system could over-perform at bit tonight in terms of precip amounts.

The air is cold and dry....dewpoints are in the mid to upper teens in many spots. So I still expect a period of sleet, and maybe even some snow in spots, as the precip moves in, with the best chances being along and west of roughly I-85.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been hoisted up in the mountains and the adjacent foothills for tonight, and certainly some accumulation of sleet and even snow are quite possible there.

In the Piedmont, the sleet will kick over to rain, and freezing rain in spots that can wet bulb below freezing. I don't expect any major accumulations, but a dusting of sleet or a glazing on some elevated surfaces can't be ruled out.

I saw on news 14 (jeffs forecast) clouds increasing Wednesday next week, does that mean something wed. night or thursday or just a switch from the "partly cloudy" graphic?

I'm looking at the radar and looking sw at miss. and ga.....its really coming down! Could this cause power outages where temps are cold enough? Thanks!

I am not sure about Jeff's forecast....I haven't seen it.

I don't think power outages will be an issue in the Piedmont....maybe a few up toward the higher elevations toward the mountains/foothills.

My guess would be that accumulations are considerably more than forecast are printing out I mean look SW!!!

Orange county now under a Winter Weather Advisory... unfortunately there are no outside lights but it's rain, freezing or not I don't know yet.

Bit of a surprise here!
