We have switched to mostly sleet in Sky Valley. The temperature is 33.1 and the dewpoint is 30.5, it has been a slow transition but I'm thinking it will likely change over to snow soon. I saw the report from Highlands, i'm attaching the link to the Highlands Chamber of Commerce downtown webcam. It's a good source in these kind of events.

I have a page that displays nicely formatted data from the 20 closest METAR stations to my house

I have another one that covers the southern Appalachians

I even have one that I've created for a Big Canoe weather page:

If the dew points keep lowering and filtering in drier air it is going to be a nice 34-35 degree rain today

Do we have bright banding going on from sleet in North Alabama or is that legit heavy precip?

Idk, tough to say. Mping reports there are all rain but there aren't many. Could be some sleet, but based on modeling our best rates were supposed to be from around noon to 3 or 4 so it matches up well.

Haha you are right. I am talking about the surface maps with temps and dew points. I like the layout of them.

Ahhhh.... that is GREarth. one of the GRLevelx applications. I love GREarth because it has so many options of things to display. It does require a $15/month subscription to Allisonhouse for the data though. http://www.grlevelx.com/grearth/
