Cantore has been tweeting about this weekend winter storm as well and said precipitation "will come in like a hammer" in some spots.
From Saturday night on (regardless of NAM precip type) watch how rapidly and heavy the precipitation spreads across parts of the i85, i40, i26 and i77 corridors Saturday night into Sunday morning. That is the takeaway for travelers. It will come in like a hammer in spots. pic.twitter.com/vQCBbgx9WF— Jim Cantore (@JimCantore) December 7, 2018
