Ok. Things finally falling into place for a decent snowfall Sunday night through shortly after sunrise Monday. Final in a series of storms affecting the region this weekend will be plowing northward from Georgia coast, bringing renewed rainfall Sunday afternoon and early evening, changing to snow before midnight timeframe.
Questions of how much moisture will depend on system’s track. Hints of a more easterly course (from shorter-range model that is often very reliable) could mean very little snow, while closer to the coast trajectory (other models) implies several hours worth of moderate to heavy snow in pre-sunrise hours.
Warm ground temps should preclude accumulations at onset of changeover, but thereafter could see quick few inches before tapering off. Too early for any more detail, but check back.

UPDATE, 2/28 late evening: Latest run of model guidance referred to above is now more agressive with precip. amounts. Our NBC12 forecast as of earlier this evening calling for 2-4″ Sunday night, but my gut feeling is this could be higher based on trends I’m seeing. Worth watching for updates. Jim
