1.) Well, well, well, snow did in fact fall overnight...not much, but like mentioned yesterday, the Iredell, Rowan, Triad, and Triangle folks did get their first ACCUMULATING snowfall. Yup, you read right. Triad and Triangle received upwards of an inch to an inch and a half of the white stuff. As for Charlotte and the immediate areas, just a few flurries and a couple isolated heavier snow flurries/very light snow fell. I noticed the roads were wet, but no accumulating snow for Kannapolis, but fun to see if you were up early this morning.
2.) Tonight will be a dangerously cold one. Temps will plummet into the upper teens. 16-18 look to play out. We could possibly break the record lows of Wednesday morning. This is truly an amazing shot of literally polar air, diving south from the north pole. Make sure you bring the pets inside, and check those water taps outside.
3.) Monday night into early Tuesday morning we may be tracking another chance for a little more snow. This isn't too far off...3 days away, so a little tweaking to the forecast, but overall, we may see some more snow. I'll keep you up to date. Late November looks interesting, and then again the first week of December. GFS is sensing a storm will hit the area, and then 2 hours later, the storm will be be too far to the south, and then the latest run shows the low around Tallahassee, Fl. I really think that all the GFS is doing is confusing itself as well as me! Again too far on the horizon, and as new data comes in, things will start getting clearer.

4.)Fishing will be very tough, with the wind and FRIGID temperatures, but trout have to eat sometime. Try small BWO nymphs and PT's. You may come across a few midge hatches. BE extremely cautious when you are around the water. One fall in any of the streams will result in hypothermia in a split second. If you do fall in, take your waders off as quickly as possible, and change clothes quickly. If that water gets inside your waders, and fills completely up, your not going anywhere. Please wear a wading belt. It's happened to me plenty of times, you know forgetting the wading belt, and falling in...those trout were laughing up a storm at me. When it's cold outside, I layer up with Under Armour, andGlacier Gloves, and wear sweat pants under my Simms breathables.

5.) Have a good onefolks, and stay warm, more tomorrow...
