Do you think this winter is going to continue the crazyness of 2020 or do we finally break free?

Managed 4" total the last 3 days. 2" from heavy squalls on Saturday then another 2" overnight. Cold and windy currently with a few flurries still falling. Interested to see if we can eek out more tomorrow with the front so close by.

Brings my season total to around 17". Much better than the season total of 4" last year.

It just started snowing here for I think the first time this calendar year, perfect timing.

EDIT: That lasted all of ten minutes, sun's back out.

We got a coating here this evening, but I can't tell how much of it is snow and how much of it is sleet. I'm about two miles from DCA and they reported a third of an inch.

I want some of whatever the Euro is smoking. (The GFS is forecasting 3-4" for northern VA in the same time frame)

Tomorrow evening looks mighty interesting for NW NC and SW VA. Could see a burst of very heavy snow before the NWFS sets in. Then the threat this weekend. Good to know winter ain't over yet.

We were originally supposed to get some tomorrow but thankfully that's no longer the case. But this weekend still looks rough even with the models that haven't gone off the deep end.

Y'all send some snow to north GA please.
I been trying. The NC border counties have done pretty well. My family in Hiawassee has seen several inches total.

This has been the winter I moved up here to Boone for so far. Hoping it can keep up. May actually get to our average for once.

the GFS has us in the 8-9" range while the Euro is in the 10-11" range and the Canadian is over a foot. glad we're getting groceries delivered today because you couldn't pay me to go outside this weekend.

I was bringing the family up to Boone/Banner Elk on Sunday, but decided the driving conditions Sunday/Monday wouldn't be worth it.

I'm hoping the HRRR/NAM are right and we maintain a mostly snow/sleet event. It's gonna be really close, though.

Hiked up Elk Knob today and they got a solid 4-6" Wed/Thu. Beech had thundersnow on Wednesday night.

Looks like we're going to underperform pretty significantly here, the low is well north of where the models showing big numbers had it progged.

We managed to stay snow/sleet for most of the event down here. Wound up with 3.5" of compacted slop.

The incoming NWF is gonna be crazy. Spots on the tn/nc border could get 2 feet.
