Late Update

My forecast for Saturday  - 1 or 2" of snow is still on track. Eastern part of the county on the higher side...could see 3". Not epic...

The NWS has 1" forecasted as seen below. Expect a Winter Weather Advisory soon.
NWS Forecast as of  10PM Shows .9"  

Only change is the timing - rain showers starting late morning - and should quickly turn to snow as the atmosphere wet-bulbs down. A quick event, should be over ~ 9 or 10 PM. Cold Sunday/Sun PM.
Surface Low Track


Raw numbers for KRUQ (Rowan Airport) on latest GFS model run say .19" here. Convert 10:1 and take off for rain = .15" of rain / 1.5" of snow. Just an example of one model run. East of here, the precip amounts increase, and the NE coast/ beaches of NC should get more snow.

I will post if anything changes forecast wise. Enjoy the snow. Out for now.
