Heavy Snow Headed for Western NC Today, Few Flurries for Upstate
the map above shows a look at radar as of 9:15AM Saturday
here is a view my parents took from the front of the house with some lighter snow falling
and here's a view of what my dad called the "snow bird condo"
here's a picture from our friends Danny & Cynthia Catalano outside of their home as the snow was coming down
Snow in Middle Tennessee Heading East: On the right side of the page are pictures picture from friends and family in my hometown of Manchester, TN from very heavy snow falling there from 8am to 10am this morning. Many areas picked up between 1" and 2" of snow in a short time.
The first couple of pictures are from my Mom & Dad taken just after breakfast this morning once the heaviest snow had pushed east of them. The last picture (at right) is from my friends Danny & Cynthia Catalano of Manchester, TN.
Afternoon in NC: Snow should begin across many areas of Western NC as a moisture-packed, northern clipper system cruises into the Mountains.
A three to six-hour accumulation of 3-4" of accumulation is probable in many Western NCareas with 1-2" more likely in valley towns. This will make driving difficult on many roads in Western NC from the ridge tops to the valleys.
Evening/Tonight in NC: Widespread snow will taper off with snow showers continuing in high elevation areas. An additional dusting to 1" of snow is expected, but these snow showers won't last much longer than Midnight.
Light Rain & Few Flurries Possible in Upstate/NE Georgia: A few snow flurries and light rain will likely make it south of Western NC into the Upstate and NE Georgia, but this system will break up to a large degree as it tries to move into NE Georgia and Upstate towns. Still, some very light rain and a few, light snow flurries come down in some towns, but none of this will create road problems.
