Verification

The models did a good job predicting the precipitation amounts in the southeastern United States. The snow accumulation totals were pretty close and did a relatively good job predicting areas that could see freezing rain and sleet. Portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, northwestern Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina all experienced freezing rain, creating horrid driving conditions. The timing of the system was also actually quite close. Models in the SREF predicted the system to move through Atlanta at around 15Z and a radar loop shows the storm first hitting the Atlanta area around 13Z.
