9:45 p.m. update: Great looking radar

If you check out this radar loop, you'll see the precip backfilling nicely in Alabama -- that's a long way for precip to go to clear our area. We just have to be patient and let the precip work through all that dry air. Could be after midnight before it really starts coming down -- generally speaking those in the southwest part of the county (B. Springs) should see heavier snow first, with Fallston and Toluca last, although there will be exceptions to this.

By the way, NAM makes a big jump later in the period and gives us another hit on Saturday, as you can see here.

Keep those reports coming -- I might pull an all-nighter. Who's with me??????

All nighter? The adult in me wants to sleep---but the kid in me wants to see it snowing--no matter what time it is! ;-)

I'm with you dude! heck, I'm 42 and I'm excited. When I was a kid here in Shelby, me and my 3 brothers had several sleds, pairs of snowboots, gloves, snow chains for the cars, etc...I have a six year old that has never done any of that stuff. Global warming stinks.

I'm pretty stoked - can't say it'll be an all-nighter, but I'll be up pretty late. The grown-up in me will be doing laundry. The kiddo will be bubbling over...no snowflakes in Lawndale yet, but I'm hopeful. Always hopeful. :)

Does the map with the inch predictions still show the same as the one you posted earlier? Upper CC getting around 5" and the rest around 4"?

I'm amazed at the varied forecasts in the last 24 hours leading up to this event...NWS wasn't predicting much of anything while other forecasters (such as our own Skip Foster) felt there would be wintry precip.
I have heard about a Saturday event, then a Tues or Weds event. NWS shows sunshine (what?) while others have been hinting at another winter mix.
Can you tell us what's up?
P.S. Flurries around C-ville!
