Was walking through Cleveland Park on the SRT late morning today and there was black ice along a couple small parts of it as we started near the zoo - was surprised as we went sliding, but luckily kept upright.

As it gets closer.. Wednesday is looking worse and worse..

If we get the moisture.. The temps are projected to not rise above 35 all day. This could be more of an event than I was thinking before. We're not talking 5 inches of snow or anything.. But Wednesday AM through Thursday AM could have some treacherous roads.

One hour it says snow, then the next day it doesn't, next hour no snow, 3 min late snow. I want snow, dangit!

As of Sunday evening NWS GSP has Greenville/Spartanburg at zero to less then 1inch snow Tuesday night into Wednesday with 44% chance of 0.10inch snow. With lows possibly in the 20's Tuesday night any moisture could mean trouble. ( NWS GSP Experimental Probabilistic Snowfall )

Ha. 0.1 inches is probably enough to close the schools. Watch them announce a closing on Tuesday evening, before a single flake has fallen.

I suspect they will.

At the end of the day.. It's a whole lot easier to be called dumb for closing schools and having nothing happen than leaving them open and having a bus full of kids skid off the road.. Or.. What happened in Atlanta a few years back where buses (and other traffic) was at a dead stop on the roads.

The timing of the temperature I think will play alot into this. It's going to be in the 50's on Tuesday.. And the temp drop.. The high on Wednesday will be before dawn. It's basically one of these odd situations where it's going to get colder with a slight warmup through the day on Wednesday, but the high is going ot happen before dawn.

There's not a whole lot of moisture, so, don't get your snowshoes out just yet.. 1 to 2 inches is probably a very high estimate of what could happen if everything hit perfectly. But that moisture and the dropping temps has me a bit concerned about road conditions and tree limbs. I'm more worried about ice and freezing precip than any snow.

The good part.. It's supposed to be 51 on Tuesday. So, that bodes well for the roads having enough heat to prevent a bad ice event.

If this moisture gets delayed or the colder temps get here earlier.. That could be more of a concern.

This is how backwards I think weather.com is:




Tue

JAN 16
Partly Cloudy4924
0%
SW 9 mph 54%


The 0% is precipitation. So, when I see this, I think, Tues. Jan 16th, there's not going to be any precipitation! But click on that day, and when it opens up to have day and evening separately, you get this:


Tue Night

JAN 16
Snow Showers--24
50%
NW 6 mph 72%
UV IndexSunriseSunsetMoonriseMoonset
0 of 107:35 am
5:41 pm
7:09 am
5:32 pm

Variable clouds with snow showers. Low 24F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 50%. Snow accumulations less than one inch.

So why the heck does it have to say 0% instead of 50% when you just look at the day!?! It's so confusing!!! Just say Tues. Jan 16th there's a 50% chance of precipitation!!!!

Haha! Nice! So if something happened overnight it may not show it at a glance! I don't know why they do it a certain way but I will just mention two FYI things for any curious: 1.Weather.com & app are no longer part of The Weather Channel...website and non-cable tv portions were bought out by IBM who's getting into the expanding commercial weather business but don't seem to have done much with it yet. 2.Most automated weather sites/apps typically use just one non-human interpreted model so that's why forecast can appear to flip flop throughout the day.
