@TrentMWeather yeah that's why I didn't even try, way too steep.
Ever since I have been in Charlotte now 11 years and counting. I’ve always heard this saying, “If it doesn’t snow in Atlanta it’s not going to snow in Charlotte”. It was kind of an odd thing even though the first several snow storms I experienced in 2002 and 2003 didn’t cause snow in Atlanta. Ever since then I have been keeping tallies of the myth/folklore and can understand how this started and why it may be true at times but more often than not it’s just false. Read more
I just released my 9th annual Winter forecast over on wcnc.com. You can view it by clicking here. My forecast basically is for a near average to slightly above average temperature winter with near to slightly below average snow and ice. The big caveat is I do think it will be a wet winter. Which means we will have an active storm track and lots of moisture around. Read more

The buzz has been around for a few days and while I have been talking about it there are a few words of caution. We are just now getting closer to a time where some specifics are starting to come into clearer focus. There are still some serious doubts about the track and location but there’s no denying that the pattern is very conducive for a winter storm in the Southeast to the Mid-Atlantic. Read more
One of the biggest snowstorms in Charlotte history started on this date 9 years ago. In an amazing day of snow that saw the city come to a stand still at noon time when everyone left work and school at the same time. We saw 2 waves of snow on during the day and another at night into the 27th. We even saw thunders now several times.
The prospects for a winter storm impacting the entire area are increasing for Friday. There are still large questions of the amounts of precipitation that will fall but a few things are becoming clearer today. Number one being this will likely be an all winter precipitation event and likely for a large part of our area. The air is plenty cold enough and dry enough to keep everything either snow/sleet or freezing rain. We aren’t looking at much of any rain at all right now.
It’s been 4 days now since what many feel was a disappointing winter storm around the Charlotte area. I won’t lie even though it never was going to be a big storm for Charlotte and points South.
Things certainly are changing in the atmosphere from a warm and dry pattern to more of a cold and wet pattern in the southeastern U.S. As I’ve been talking about for a while the pattern seems to be flipping back to a more winter like one for the end of this month. Read more
