Area forecast discussion
national weather service raleigh nc
240 pm est sat dec 04 2010

.synopsis...
An upper level disturbance and associated low pressure system will
cross north carolina through tonight. Windy... Cold... And dry
weather will follow this system sunday through wednesday.

&&

.near term /through tonight/...
As of 235 pm saturday...

...winter weather advisory continues for north central nc with one
to two inches accumulation expected mainly on grassy surfaces...

We have received reports of about a half inch to one inch
accumulation of snow in the triad region so far with snow continuing
to fall according to observations... D.o.t. Web cams... And
measurements from the vertically-pointing mobile micro rain radar
located near gso. Isentropic lift in the 285k-300k layer continues
to strengthen according to the latest fine scale model guidance
including the hi res rapid refresh model and our local wrf... Which
depicts the maximum ascent and saturation within the dendritic
growth zone aloft over central nc occuring in the mid to late
afternoon. This lift has been sufficently strong to overcome the
initially dry subcloud layer with dew point depressions dropping
quickly with the onset of precip. Temps have already reached their
highs in the mid 30s to lower 40s and will continue to fall this
afternoon.

Models show strong moist upglide persisting through 00z... When the
surface low is expected to be located over far upstate sc... On pace
to track just south of the nc/sc border through the evening to off
the ilm coast by 06z. During this time the best mid level dpva
arrives (associated with a strong vorticity lobe dropping se through
va and nc) in conjuction with increased upper divergence within the
left exit region of a strengthening 140+ kt upper jet core pushing
toward nc from the nw. As a result... The spc wrf / local wrf / hi
res rapid refresh / 13km ruc / 12km nam-wrf all show steady precip
persisting over the northern half of central nc into mid evening.
Will keep the winter weather advisory running along/north of the
highway 64 corridor until midnight. Based on the small scale banded
structure of the snow and locally brief heavier snowfall... Have
upped the storm total snowfall to 1-2 inches. This is based on a
snow/liquid ratio of about 8:1 to 9:1... In line with climatology
and with ratios observed so far in the triad. Accumulations will be
predominantly on the grassy areas... Although the snow is coming
down at a heavy enough rate within some of these mesoscale bands
that a dusting may stick onto untraveled roads.

Emergency workers and the NC Highway Patrol said weather was a factor in a double fatality that happened Saturday afternoon in High Point. They said a child from the crash was transported to the hospital.

Telecommunicators at the 911 center in High Point tell WFMY News 2 that the crash happened around 3:31pm on a bridge located on East Fork Rd near Guilford Road.

Highway Patrol said the crash involved two pickup trucks and happened when one traveling west on E. Fork Rd went left of center due to icy conditions and hit the other truck coming east.

City workers were called to spread salt on the bridge and the area for icy patches
