1:45 p.m.: Snow showing up -- is it too late

Concerned that the radar back over N. Ga. is thinning out -- hoping our precip doesn't poop out before the VERY tardy cold air arrives in force. We'll be wondering how we lacked cold air tomorrow and tommorow night when it's bone-chilling cold, esp. at night with lows in the teens.

We can start posting comments in this post because the other had gotten so long.

It's really fun to share observations, but if you are trolling I will start deleting your posts.

Snow now accumulating in Hickory.

It has changed to all snow in Anderson, S.C.

That's NNE of us and WSW of us!!!!

ICEMAN said...

yay

amanda said...

temp has dropped a whole degree in the past 30 mins or so. Looks like rain slowly changing to snow here near Lattimore. I'd estimate its 25% snow and 75% rain

ICEMAN said...

a lil snow mixing in with the rain when will it make a complete changeover???

Snowman said...

Skip I have enjoyed following your winter weather predictions over the last couple of years.

For some reason because I choose to disagree with your logic and you with mine the Skip Foster Fan Club thinks I have a Cavalier attitude.

Anyone who reads all posts from yesterday will see I said no more than an inch and never waivered. Hopefully, I'm wrong. If I am so be it.

35.1 and all rain here.

more rain mixing in now by the library in Shelby....

gnl134 said...

36.7 and some snow in Lawndale, but not much at this time.

Anonymous said...

looks like all rain here (Boiling Springs area) :(

ICEMAN said...

all rain now in south shelby

Skip Foster said...

Not even sure what we disagree on -- your final call was 1 inch -- mine was 1-2 -- we're both going to miss barring a late flourish.

Amanda said...

Now about 40% snow and 60% rain here near Lattimore. Temp is steadily falling at 35.4 degrees. If you look at weather.com's "map in motion" it shows the change-over is just about here!!

Anonymous said...

Mostly snow on New Prospect Ch Rd., however it is not as steady. Will it pick up Skip?

Skip Foster said...

Radar not looking so hot, but some reports are that even when radar looks bad back in NE Ga. snow continues to fall -- may have something to do with the dry airmass.

Bottom line: I'm pretty pessimistic we'll see accumulation but certainly not ruling it out.

ICEMAN said...

mostly rain in south shelby

Agreed.

Just got off the phone with the wife and a lady who is Store Manager at Aldi in Spartanburg says its all rain there and they are saying a change over should occur within an hour.

34 here and a little more snow starting to mix in.

Snowman said...

iceman : where are you in south Shelby? I'm in Brittain Village and there's just a little snow mixed in.

Skip Foster said...

Snowing and 35 in Rutherfordton.

Seeing a hint of snow mixed in now in Boiling Springs :)!!

Anonymous said...

Steady, moderate, but small flakes in west Shelby by library now, a shame they can't stick due to temp.

BTW Skip, does Mrs. F. just leave you alone when you get your 'weather blinders' on....lol!

Skip Foster said...

Changing to all snow all around us -- Gastonia, Hickory, Spartanburg.

Maybe Snowman and I will get off the hook after all ?????????

Lattimore said...

Temp is 33.0 and it's more snow than rain in Lattimore. Not laying yet.

Temp now 34.7 near lattimore. 100% snow and very pretty to watch. It's starting to stick to the deck. Also watching two wild turkeys in the pasture eating off the ground...like we were talking about the birds and squirrels doing. Must gonna be a BIG one. I sure hope it surprises everyone!

Skip Foster said...

Still mostly rain at my house.


Sigh.

Pretty much a complete change over here but flakes are very small.

snowangel said...

I'm ready to PLAY ... that's what I'd be knowing ;-) Yay! WOOO HOOOO

Anonymous said...

By library off West Sumter in Shelby....

Light snow, small flakes, have been falling for past 15 minutes or so, nothing sticking yet, although it looks like it is trying to stick on some leaves on bushes outside front door here...

If it were only 10 degrees colder, we would be having some fun now...

Another question for Skip...how much commission per loaf of bread and gallon of milk is Teeter, Food Lion, and Ingles paying you for snow promotion?:-)

Anonymous said...

18N about four miles North of Shelby, all snow here but temp is showing 36 degrees.

Snowman said...

Wow !! 3 people from the Village. Let it SNOW !!

Anonymous said...

Near Crest High/Beaver Dam, rain turning in to snow slowly and about 38 degrees. Bring it on!

Skip Foster said...

Sheesh!

Anonymous said...

Anonymous said...

so what kind of icing situation are we gonna be in? any major threat to power lines and limbs?

Snowman said...

It can't seem to make up its mind here. Back to a mix.

Paige said...

Checking in from Lawndale...We saw the changeover from rain to snow (nice-sized flakes) just before 3. Now it has more rain in it again...Still hoping for the best. :)

Anonymous said...

It's switchin back and forth here too--Kemet. It's back to mostly snow now. Small but very steady flakes. Jeff

Paige said...

Forgot to add, we're hovering around 32-33*. :)

E-Joe said...

Checking in from the Mooresboro-6 Points area at the county line.
We have a mix, good bit of small snow in there. Temp hovering at 36-37. Nothing sticking here either. But we're keeping the faith!

Mainer said...

Raining cats and dogs in Boiling springs...just stepped in a poodle!!

Dale said...

Hope it didn't hurt the poodle!

Anonymous said...

little now south of BS near broad river. hope it picks up.

Anonymous said...

Very light snow/rain mix here in Cliffside. Skip, is it going to change to all snow any time soon or even at all?

Anonymous said...

Well I live south of Earl about 2 miles from the SC line and we haven't had anything but rain, temps from 41 down to 37, and NO snow. I don't know what ya'll are seeing but I just never understood how it was gonna snow at 39 degrees.

Anonymous said...

Enjoying reading your comments! Moved to Northern PA (Poconos)last year from Boiling Springs. I hate the snow (way too much here!). I sure miss the excitement you guys are experiencing. Hope you get some snow.

Anonymous said...

Snow starting to pick up a little in south BS. Loving it.

Anonymous said...

snowing good near patterson springs. whats the verdict on it sticking?

Anonymous said...

Grover man here again. Part snow/rain at 35.6 degrees. 3:40 PM.

ICEMAN said...

heavy snow in southern shelby when will it start sticking???

Skip Foster said...

Re: sticking -- if there is precip left as the sun sets, that extra degree or two could help it stick.

NWS just updated and insist we'll see an inch or two.

I'm still skeptical.

E-Joe said...

Still steady but moderate snowfall near Mooresboro. Looks like it is mostly snow now with very little rain. Still not sticking, but the temp is down a degree to 35.

gnl134 said...

Seeing some pretty good snow fall right now in Lawndale with a temp of 35.1

blessed said...

SNOW! SNOW! plenty of snow in kings mt. But the grounds wet not white. I am afraid time it is sunset all the snow would have been spent.

Skip remember that idea about my sled, the star car and you, I begining to think the only sledding going to be happening in shelby is that! I got go contact hoboteck.

Dale said...

Not trying to be a wet blanket, but take a look at the radar for the Southest.

The heavy precipitation is well to our south and east, along a line from Columbia, SC to Greenville, NC.

I hope the NWS is right and we get to see an inch or two but that could be enough to make the roads very dangerous tomorrow morning. Low temps. overnight are predicted to be in the low 20's.

Shelby airport temp. is still 36f.

Anonymous said...

hmm..everything has stopped here in B. Springs. no rain no snow

Anonymous said...

Ok... it's doing absolutely NOTHING in Boiling Springs. We had some snow but it was mixed with rain. Now it's doing nodda...is all hope lost for us here??????

Waiting on the snow!

Cherryvillegirl said...

Things seem slower here in C-ville, while it is colder. If everything that is wet here freezes overnight, that would be very rough.

Looking ahead, see that theres a possibility next week (maybe 2 or 3times?) that we could see wintry weather. Guess I trying not to get down....I want 6-12 inches of snowfall (sometime this year)!! PLEASE??!!

E-Joe said...

Mooresboro area at the county line..Virtually nothing falling now. VERY light almost a mist. Temp has slipped back up to 37. I was skeptical like Skip and I think this will not be a serious snow event.

That kinda ticks me off..One because I wanted to see the winter wonderland today..And two, not only is this NOT happening..but the temps are predicted to fall, effectively keeping me from going out and getting my party on with my friends for fear of sliding off into a gully! LOL Dagnabbit!

Snowman said...

Radar doesn't look good for any measurable snow. Oh well.

snowangel said...

even with no snow -- traveling will be unsafe tonight ... better not get yo party on unless you do it at home! LOL

gnl134 said...

34.2 degrees in Lawndale with nothing falling.

N~ said...

I live in South Shelby and did not see one bit if snow. Just rain. I must have missed what little snow all the others in S shelby saw.

les said...
