FINAL FORECAST: N.C. Piedmont 6"+ Tonight - Thurs AM

Quick and dirty: Rowan / Davie County / NC Piedmont will have 6 inches of snowfall with higher amounts likely closer to Charlotte averaging 8 inches. Banding of snow will be a major player as heavier amounts will be seen. Deformation zone could occur early Thursday morning and add 1 to 2 inches of additional snow which is likely on the north east side of the Piedmont. This is very similar (yet better...) to the National Weather Service forecast from all 3 WFO's that forecast as well as WPC thoughts as shown on snow progs below.

So, 6 to 8 inches overall is a safe bet - as usual with heavier and potentially convective precip, snow amounts will vary within small distances.


Generally, only change has been a small northward movement of low / precip and corresponding increase in precip amounts.
