When I left home in Bogart it was 43/88%.  It is raining here at work in Lithonia and temp was the same not sure about humidity.

Current temps around the area

MRX (Morristown) said "Not an easy forecast"... and they will see more snow than down here. The forecast doesn't get easier as you go further south into north Georgia, and in some ways becomes more difficult.

37º at 3300 feet at Neels Gap. What's your elevation @Preston?

3,406', curious of what it is in the neighborhood above me which gets to almost 4,000'

Looks like a lot of precip, frozen or otherwise. Ugh. I'm off to the local Palace of Earthly Delights for chili fixings...hopefully I won't get caught in a bread and milk stampede.  :classic_laugh:

All rain at the moment but we are down to 34.2 with a dewpoint of 29 in Sky Valley. 

Very nice! Should get the flip soon. Seen a report from Cashiers just up the road from you that it is snowing.

I just noticed that the Gulf low is already 1018 mb. The HRRR had a 1016 around 5 PM today... so I'm thinking the low i stronger than anticipated. The concern for us could work both ways. Stronger lows generally have stronger warm air advection which would work to reduce the chances for frozen precip. On the other hand, and stronger low can also can also help to reinforce the wedge like conditions that are trying to form. Interesting battle and one we need to watch carefully.

Temperatures have stabilized for the most part along with dewpoints as the atmosphere is pretty much saturated. We now wait for the push of colder air.

I know this storm isn't going to turn out the way we want it to but it has been fun and now fascinating to watch this unfold. I guess just for the fun of it.. my weather station in Buford 3 miles NE of the Mall of GA is sitting at 38.4 with a dew point of 38.

Those are archived images from Tuesday. Heres the current conditions at New Found Gap, much more optimal 😀

Yeah I think GSP mentioned in their discussion earlier this morning that the colder air would be in no hurry to move until the low level flow ramps up in response to the pressure falls from the deepening low.

Difference in elevation, Preston saw sleet earlier. I live on Black Branch, at the top of the mountain. Fairly elevated at 2500ish, but had rain and 39 degrees. Just hoping to be able to get home tonight from SC.

850's are starting to fall nicely. Was nearly plus 2 at the last update. 850mb_sf.gif.ca7fd158d749b80077e426a7b0d7735c.gif

Dewpoint starting to fall again, need some heavier rates up here to get the wet bulbing to work.

Need a little help with 925 mb temps though. 🙂

Well some of us do at least. Lucky peeps at elevation like Preston won't have to worry about it cause there isn't a 925 there lol. But it seems to be snowing in the 1 degree region in NC with a report of light snow in Franklin now also. I'd guess that the snow is pulling the cold air down from 850 and cooling the 925s.
