Quick 4pm hit....

>> Friday, January 29, 2010

Watching some healthy action on the radar in Mississippi and Alabama. That will move through here later tonight. Light snow has developed a little ahead of schedule, and some accumulation is occurring on some grassy surfaces. All in all, I still expect any accumulations in NC to be light until later this evening.

There is also a dry slot near the Mississippi River....we will have to watch how that impacts us carefully....those can ruin a good forecast at times....

I have taken a look at things, and I have decided to leave my accumulation map from this morning unchanged. I was tempted to pull the 5-10" area further south into Cleveland, Gaston, and Meck counties, but I will leave it alone. Just be aware the totals right along I-85 could wind up higher than the 3-6" and lean more toward the 5-10" in some spots.

In the northern Piedmont, the 7-12" from roughly I-40 northward still looks pretty good, although there is a good chance that area could wind up on the upper side of that range.

I appreciate all of your kind words greatly....they are humbling. Thanks for checking in. I will put up some hits on twitter from time to time.....but I will also be away from the computer at times.

Enjoy the weather, and be careful!

Yeah, that dry slot looks bad. This has the look of a cold front, just a big line of moisture moving through. Hopefully that will fill in or this could turn in to a big bust.

Pouring snow here - grass is turning white. The kids are excited so I hope the dry slot doesn't mess us up! Still hoping.

Will the dry slot effect everyone or just the southern portion?

How's the dry slot looking now?


Dry slot dry slot.... It scares me... Give me confidence Matt...

Yea, the dry slot is not looking very promising. Seems to be getting worse rather than filling in.


Exactly, hopefully Matt will give us an explanation of hope...
