    "Historic Storm" To Bury Southern Appalachians In Snow; Expect Massive Travel Disruptions

    Ed Vallee, head meteorologist at Vallee Weather Consulting, has certainly been on his weather game this year. Last month, his forecasts correctly pointed to a number of cross-country storms and unprecedented cold weather that punished the East Coast.
    Now, his forecasts point to a new danger. Winter Storm Diego will travel through the southern US with a swath of snow, sleet and freezing rain from the southern Plains to the Ozarks, southern Appalachians, and parts of the Mid Atlantic late this week into early next week.
    A winter storm will take shape across the Four Corners region of the U.S. late this week, and will move across the southern tier of the United States into the weekend. This sets the stage for an impactful early season storm in areas that typically don’t receive abundant winter weather. Snow and ice will impact the Panhandle of Texas and western Oklahoma Friday night into Saturday. As it moves eastward, it will pick up Gulf of Mexico moisture and allow for heavy snow and ice in the western Carolinas and western Virginia along the I-81, I-77, and I-85 corridors Saturday night through Monday. This looks to bring wintry impacts to cities such as Charlotte, NC, Raleigh, NC, Roanoke, VA, and Asheville, NC - all areas that typically average 14 inches of snow or less (all except Roanoke, VA average less than 7 inches) per year. This storm may provide those amounts or even more, particularly in areas west of I-77 in North Carolina, and along the I-81 corridor in southwest Virginia, said Vallee.
    Rain, thunderstorms and wintry participation are expected across the southeastern US on Saturday.

    The storm is likely to "pack quite a punch in the South Central states this weekend," said Accuweather, adding that "it may hit like a sledgehammer over portions of the Southeast states from Saturday night to Monday."
    This may be a historic storm in parts of NC and VA this weekend. European ensemble data is suggesting a wide area of 12"+ of snow, which is more than the seasonal normal snowfall in many areas outside of the mountains. #ncwx #vawx #scwx pic.twitter.com/5yx1UkoW0r

    "In areas from the mountains of western North Carolina to parts of southern West Virginia and western and central Virginia, this will be a major storm with the potential for a foot or more of snow," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brian Wimer.


    This massive storm also has the potential to bring an icy mix to the Delmarva Peninsula. Sleet and freezing rain can be extremely dangerous and could complicate driving conditions on the I-95 across the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area. Heavy wet snow and icy conditions are anticipated to bring widespread power outages across the affected areas.
    In the Deep South, there are risks of severe storms, flash flooding, and travel disruptions in the I-10 and I-20 corridors of the Southeast, as well as in the coastal areas of the Carolinas and the southeastern corner of Virginia.

    They are calling for 12"-18" in my area of the Carolinas. The plant I work for wants us (3rd shift) to work overtime and come in Sat. night just as the storm hits at 10pm. What do you suppose the roads will look like by 6am? Then they want us to come in for our regular shift at 10pm Sunday after storming all day. Lol. I think they are being optimistic about whether enough people will show up to run the machines.

    I live in the heart of the Southern Appalachian Mountains and am looking forward to the snow. Granted I run my own business as a one man show and won't have to drive in it. Although I feel sorry for those who do have to drive in it, it's not enough to ruin my snowy day.

    If I were a single person I'd just pack a cot and some food and plan on being there for a couple days. But you can't do that when you have a family at home. Tough call. Do you live in the mountains where they are at least used to dealing with some snow?
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Lol. I'm not that committed. But, I have a 4x4 pick-up and have experience on snow. We are at the foot of the mountains but are inundated with "half-backs." Floridians. Hopefully, I'm thinking there won't be to many idiots that late or that early.

    I don't mind them much. If someone knows how to do a donut in a snowy parking lot, they usually know how not to do one on a windy road.

    The thing is a lot of people don't realize there is a fine line between going too slow and too fast. Getting stuck behind an idiot who is attempting to drive up a steep hill at 5 miles an hour only to slide back down sucks.

    Y'all are at least safe from this idiot. I will not be driving in any snow or ice. I will also not fight you for the milk and bread. I buy booze and steaks.

    Yup. Those are the same ones that like to ride their brakes going down hill instead of using a lower gear.
