And Snow It Goes…

The snow is entering extreme southern Wake Co. at 11:45am.  It will arrive in Raleigh within the next hour…right on schedule.  And when it begins, it will be significant.  Expect snow rates of 1″ or even greater per hour.  This will quickly whiten things with a a good several inches before any change to sleet.  I’m happy to leave the forecast in place with the caveat of the possibility of higher accumulations on the front end.

With regard to the wrap-around snow expected tomorrow…it’s looking more likely, especially from the Triangle north to VA.  A couple inches with that seems like a safe bet.

Steady as she goes.  I’m eager to see the Euro’s latest track, which will help with understanding just how much warm air works in.

    You nailed it! AT LEAST 1″ an hour! I managed to share this and get folks moving out of the building so I could leave. 45 mins. and 7 miles later, home safely and loving my view!

    The people stuck on I-40 & 540 should have read your posts! I’m amazed at how many people have said, “the snow surprised me”.
