    • This is the area for the Special Weather Statement - http://www.daculaweather.com/4_alert_map.php
    • The levels above the surface will cool and drop below freezing well before the surface does. Anything that falls after 10 pm should be all snow, but depending on the elevation at your location, it may be a wet one or just rain. At that point in time, the temperatures at the surface will be close to these. Notice that only the higher elevations are below freezing.  Starting at 925 mb (which is around 2500 feet) and going up is below freezing. These are from the Euro so not a forecast, just one example about what we're dealing with.    Also keep in mind, at that same point in time, the dewpoint depressions look like this. The higher the number the drier the air. In order to see much snow falling at the surface, those numbers need to drop closer to zero. The snow will evaporate as it falls until the atmosphere moistens up, in other words, some of the snow is sacrificed to moisten the air and drop the temp. 🙂 So again, those areas in the mountains are in better shape than everyone else as their numbers are pretty much where they need to be.
