Yup, first and likely only as I'm making a permanent move to North Carolina next month.

Why the move?  Man, how are you going to deal with the lack of winter down there?  On the bright side, I’m sure it’s for good reason and for many good things to come in your life.

I'll be at a higher elevation in the Piedmont, so I won't be completely winter-less. Though 5-10 years between WSW-level snows will be agonizing. 

The move is for a new job opportunity that I'll hopefully stay at. Definitely a great thing in my life. I'll still post here while looking to repopulate the Atlantic subforum.

Good luck!  A good friend of mine lives near Charlotte, NC and absolutely loves it down there.  Southern hospitality and genuine folks.

I was a bit gun-shy to call for "a footer" in parts of NMI after seeing SR model trends, but my gut feeling ended up being accurate (nice feeling). Idk if these Peeps were even in a Watch box. I only remember a few counties around the Straights region/Tip of the Mitt. This is well south near my former work community back in the 90's:

Momentary whiteout squall just passed over here at work. Barely see across the road. Wasn't expecting that! 🙃

The combination of low level cold air advection in the wake of the
cold front this morning and the growth of the planetary boundary
layer from daytime heating resulted in very windy conditions across
Southeast Michigan. The main absolute vorticity anomaly was lagged
off of the cold front which resulted in a convective response within
a narrow zone of vertical ascent that tracked through the cwa
between 16-19Z. The forcing was progressive with an impressive snow
squall response of very short duration at any one location.

Short, but potent. 1/2" new snow and first after work brush-n-scrape required on the car for this winter. Slowly, we step down into real winter. Just a bumpy ride getting there it appears.

Awesome pictures Madtown! Definitely starting to look a lot like Christmas out your way. We’re planning our first snowmobile ride later this week, probably Thursday evening or Friday. Our trails opened December 1st here in Michigan so the groomers should have enough time to get the trails panned by Friday hopefully. Lake effect really kicked into gear today after the front went through, some areas should be pushing 20” of fresh snow by tomorrow afternoon between what fell yesterday and today making a great start to the winter sports season.

...Snow Showers Continue Across The Area...

A couple bands of snow showers remain over the area this evening.
Localized, briefly heavier snow showers will have the potential to
drop visibilities below one mile and cover untreated roads. With
temperatures now below freezing across much of the area, the
likelihood of snow sticking on untreated surfaces is increasing.
Those traveling this evening should be prepared for variable
driving conditions and visibility, along with gusty winds up to 30
mph.

Gotta love it when 1"/hr rates means things are quieting down.

.UPDATE...
Issued at 933 PM EST Mon Dec 6 2021

Conditions trying to slowly improve out there this evening with
slowly decreasing wind speeds and a trend for more disorganized
lake effect. Still, transit bands of one inch per hour snowfall
and remnant gusty winds no doubt causing some hazardous driving
conditions in our typical snowbelt locations. Most persistent snow
bands remain off Lake Superior, with a general westward drift
suggesting several more hours of decent, albeit transit, heavier
snow showers rotating across eastern upper snowbelts. Expect a
least a few more inches by morning in this area, particularly
along and north of M-28. Loss of Lake Superior connection and
increasingly dry air taking their collective toll on Lake Michigan
snowbands. This trend will continue, although do expect at least
some minor accumulations (generally less than 2 inches) in the
northwest lower snowbelts. Inherited winter weather headlines will
remain in these areas. Otherwise, just some patchy lighter snow
showers and flurries elsewhere. Will be a cold one tonight, with
lows in the single digits and teens...with wind chill readings
running a few degrees either side of zero.
