Folks we will just be too warm for snow. What we are expecting is wet snow mixed with rain. It may be heavy at times but with ground temps in the 50’s and air temps in the mid 30’s don’t expect anything to stick. This is a NC Mountains event.
New GFS Model
The higher resolution GFS model has been running in parallel with the current GFS. Because the resolution is higher, it can sample more features yielding a more accurate forecast (in theory). Shown above is 7:00 am Thanksgiving day and our mountains will receive a helping of snow with their turkey.
Our best friend in winter the European model is perhaps showing an accurate depiction for our area…light snow. It does not factor in the ground temperature however so don’t get too excited.
Black Friday, a day when Mr and Mrs NC Weather Happens shelters in place with turkey sandwiches and pumpkin pie, will be the start of a little warming trend. The featured image above shows this trend quite nicely. Through the first week of December we can see dry weather with temps in the low to mid 60’s
If you haven’t gotten your outside decorating done, this would be a great week to check that off your list.
-NC Weather Happens, Enjoy it!
