The Snow Has Started Here

I went out to grab a bite to eat at 7:15pm at that time it was rain snow mix, but mainly rain. I walked outside at around 8:30pm and nearly passed out.

I was actually shocked to see how quickly the snow had accumulated on the grass and roads! The roads really surprised me!!!!

After seeing how quickly this has accumulated one would tend to up the totals, but I am going to stick with what I posted last night... 1"-4" and that 4" stuff will likely be more common on the highest elevations. Every county in our coverage area was added to the Winter Weather Advisory that runs through 6:00am.

As I mentioned before... this overall system had all kinds of moisture to work with. It had so much that it sparked Flash Flood Warnings for some. If all of this moisture had fallen into cold air... well... we'd be digging out through the weekend and early next week. As we know, this was not the case! There will be a ton of traffic issues on Friday morning so please be careful while travelling around the mountains.

The rest of the forecast beginning Friday afternoon will become a little easier to deal with. Highs only in the 40s and fairly dry!

Please submit any and all photos you can. I'll try to post or throw them up on the air.

I'll be posting updates if needed!

C-Ya Bye

    Hey dude, i always check your blog, pretty good predictions, of course i always make guesses from gut instincts and get things right, haha i called this snow from saturday evening, idk if u called it back then but yea, ive been skiing up n down my road while hooked to a 4wheeler, great stuff, its a weird snow, had alot of water underneath it so its slushy and packs well. But seeings how its 2 am, my skiing has been getting better and the roads are beginning to ice.

    It's snowing here right now. I am also happy they called the county school off for tomorrow. I hope the roads will not be too bad in the a.m. because PC never closes from what I hear. I will take pics and send them in the a.m. Be safe everyone!

    The roads are already covered up in Bell County on the hill where I live. The Bell County School system needs to get off there butt and call off the school. My sis will not be on that bus if there our school. All they think about is the money. Get off your tail and do something...
