This was in Williamsburg, VA on the way home. We had snow from noon today until 7pm. The trip from VCU to Williamsburg and back to Elizabeth City. It was a beautiful sight to see and drive in all day. Listened to Christmas music and made it feel so festive.
And I'm back with another map created through ArcGIS. I decided to put in the latest snow cover analysis (as of 00z) from NOAA's NOSRHC. Do note that it's a bit exaggerated for northern counties of North Carolina, but the grey is still below an inch of snow.
I'm legitimately curious just how far south it's snowing underneath that lake effect band, because the lowest tilt shows legitimate returns all the way into southern Sampson County. Of course the lake effect band weakens w/ distance from Kerr Lake, but the radar beam is so high by the time its in Sampson Co, it's likely overshooting the low-topped LES band. Pretty insane to think we're even discussing lake effect snow in central NC lol
