Well, Webb, is this one really going to happen or is it another OTS whiff for us? Do you think it has legs? I can see some snow-islands in the precip shield, but I can't wrap my head around a major storm this late.Even a dusting would double my total snow output for the season considering that almost all of what I picked up in early Dec was sleet
Wow that's pretty incredible! I knew there had to be at least one decent April snowstorm in Charlotte, just don't think even over a 125 year record that there's really enough data to pick one up because internal variability is so large.According to a history book on Mecklenburg County, Charlotte received five inches of snow from the April 15, 1849 snowstorm. The S.C. Department of Natural Resources says 6 inches of snow was measured in that storm in Columbia. David Ludlum in his book on Early American Winters says four inches of snow fell in Fayetteville, NC and around six inches of snow was measured near Wilmington, NC. The Mecklenburg County history book account also mentions that it was not until mid-summer 1849 that trees made a "respectable shade." Sounds similar to what happened to the trees after the April 2007 freeze.
