The forecasts for the winter season all say "warmer than average," but don't tell that to Mother Nature today.
Some parts of the Triangle saw a bit of wintry weather this morning, thanks to a fast-moving storm system moving in from the northwest. Weather spotters in Cary, Chapel Hill, Rolesville, Roxboro, Tarboro, and Wake Forest all reported seeing at least a few flurries with the system this morning. The ground was much too warm for anything to "stick", but it's nice to know the atmosphere hasn't forgotten how to snow on us from time to time.
This is exciting, because now we can peer inside the storm to see what's actually there. Before, we've been able to marry radar data with computer model data in order to come up with an estimate of what's out there. While that's done a pretty good job, it can't compare to using this new technology to actually measure and detect what's going on inside the storm. We're excited to be able to bring you this new innovation, especially as we head into the winter season.
Just because it's forecast to be a "warmer than average" winter doesn't mean we won't see any kind of wintry weather, as today proves!
