****General Discussion Weather Thread #3 - 2018****

Have you got any reliable replacement for the "snow dancing" beagles yet?

All I have is my basic Dog Barometer, today reporting cooler and breezier after breakfast. I don't think they are much good at predicting or "calling up" a snow event for NW Georgia.
Lol. I'll have to bribe them with some turkey or ham and get them dancing!
 
There is only one day in the local 7-day forecast that doesn't have a chance of snow.
 
You need to get you a winter cabin somewhere further south so you can have cool mountain summers and mild winters.
Yes, yes I do. Send me money. :bounce:

Winter weather advisory here tonight.
 
Snowing here now. Yay.

Hugh isn't it a little far off to be predicting this? If it is announced Friday then I will worry. If it did verify it could be a repeat of last year.
What we are discussing right now with this event isn't so much a snow event, but instead the potential for a CAD freezing rain event. Maybe DDD will get in here a little closer to this weekend and update y'all on the potential for things to go real bad real quick in the NE quadrant (CAD prone areas) for this system. Fingers crossed it's just a snow bomb for NC Hillbilly though. ;)

Yes I saw where the NE Ga Mountains could get slick with this event. I just wish that if it was going to be cold that we would get some snow instead of rain.

Also aren't you and DDD in the CAD area's too for possible winter weather?
 
Locals hollering 10" -20" here now.

It snowed here last night, couple inches in places, dusting in others.
 
Looks like the models are trending warmer....it seems they always have trouble getting a bead on potential CAD events. Gonna be a close one. I'm praying for cold rain vs. ice.
Yeah outside of NE GA which should always benefit from CAD on most models the rest of the region is up in the air. I will be awaiting the NAM to come more into range as the tale goes that it's always been one of the better temp profile models we have in particular when measuring CAD so far its 84 hour max mark is at the start of the event and it already is showing pretty significant temp differences compared to other models across all of N. Georgia particularly the CAD regions and a good bit colder.... We've seen times where WAA marginalizes CAD and we've seen times where CAD almost extends all the way into Alabama so who knows
 
Still snowing here. Cold and windy, too.
 
I gladly offer up my house, which is located smack dab in the middle of the "no snow dome".
I get the same sinking feeling when they call for a foot of snow here that you do when they put out a tornado warning. Roads often impassable, trees down everywhere, no electricity in freezing temps, roofs collapsed, etc. Heavy snow sucks, and causes people to die every year.
