Do you mean GSO?

BTW, I clarified the thread subject.

Hi Shelby, The forecasts change from that far out as you know. I am not an airport ice expert, but unless it is a storm, I think they keep the runways clear. So hopefully all will be fine. That should make for some interesting clothes changes throughout the day.

Are you referring to Greensboro, NC ?

Yes, GSO , and I apologize Dave- I just don't seem to ever get this posting thing quite right.

My concern was with ice for take off as well as the fact that I drove down through Fancy Gap at 6 am and I have concerns that the mountain will be dangerous even with a little ice.
I believe you are correct , howver, that with the forecast that far out it is sure to change. Thank you for your help.

You know Dave, this is probably on the worng board anyway. It is more transportation oriented. Just go ahead and remove it altogether if you would. Thank you.

Hi Shelby, I have driven that same mountain many times. I most certainly understand your concerns. It was so foggy one time I had to go really slow with my hazard lights on. It is really smart to keep up with the weather like you are doing. That way you can allow extra time to get over it. If you don't mind me asking, where are you from?

Best wishes,

Dwayne

I live in the southern tip of WV. The weather channel has changed a little since I first looked. Now it just says rain/no ice, but over night it is still to be around 32 in NC. I worried b/c at 5 amm the mountain may not be treated yet esp if it is black ice.

I know that area well. I grew up on the Va. side near there. If you can get through the tunnels and to the peak without ice, it should be better temperature wise on the way down. We went up to my uncle's for Christmas once in Bluefield and everything was fine south of the mountain. When we went through the last tunnel and came out it was snow and ice!

The most important thing is to be safe. If you see it is going to get bad don't do it. You might consider going a day early during the warmer times for the mountain.

I found this site. I don't know how accurate it is.
