Remind me to go outside with shoes from now on! OUCH! The ground hurts my feet, and no precip here at all right now. Just very very cold.

It is snow/sleeting where I am now, most of it did not reach the ground, you could hear the sleet/rain hit the trees high up, but only a few ice crystals fell onto cars. It is REAL cold outside though.

I am afraid I will have to head south if I want to see sleet or snow, the dry air at the surface is winning the battle, absolutely nothing is reaching the ground.
This Arctic blast means business when is in the low to mid 30s even with cloudy skies.

At 6:30, its sleeting at my house, south of DT Orlando. I heard it hitting the skylight and I knew it didn't sound like rain. Went out to get the paper and still couldn't see it (still dark here) but could hear it hitting the trees and shrubs, and when I came back in I felt a few pellets in my hair. :lol:

RUC forecast sounding for the Orlando area shows a very dry surface up to 1,500' into the atmosphere with a subfreezing layer around that height, then a saturated and above freezing layer between H95 and H85, thus why reports of mostly sleet reports and not snow just yet.
H85 has to get below freezing for an all snow event across central FL.

Come on snow. That'd be pretty cool, but hey even sleet here is pretty amazing, if that's all we get. It's still coming down, light but steady. :)

Arctic is in place and heights continue to fall, I am more afraid of the precip moving away before H85 gets subfreezing than anything else, maybe a few flakes before precip moves away from the Orlando area in a few hours, better chance of snow looks to be south of Orlando where precip seems to hold on longer.
