Here's a preliminary snow & sleet accumulation map for yesterday's winter storm in NC:

Looks like @metwannabe hit the "jackpot" east of the mountains, NOHRSC analysis also hinted at a dusting of accumulation around Roanoke Rapids.

IIRC that looks similar to a map of Nov. 12, 1968. That was a few years before me but my grandmother died in an automobile accident that day and my dad tells me there was snow on the ground (also I've looked at your site and sure enough a trace fell on that date). Crazy

Sooo I said truck in my post, a century is a car..... I tell ya I've read some stuff from you over the years but I've never been so insulted in all my life :D:D;). Actually a 2005 Tacoma, it's my pride and joy!
lol I don't read posts that have snowy pictures in them when I'm not getting snow!

My dad recorded 29 which is actually surprising because his low is usually a little warmer than the official down the road (may have still been). Maybe kind of meh but I was shaking almost uncontrollably when I pulled myself out of bed as a response to the colder air earlier this morning (had an interview). Now I'm back home under my electric blanket. :)

Well bottomed at 22.4 and one thing I noted this morning driving in, the leaves of the "Nut Trees" (Pecan, Walnut) were falling green.. When I got home all those trees were bare.
Same here. Our pecans dropped their leaves like they were on fire today.

After a low of 30, my area had highs of 49-50. This was like a cold midwinter day. There typically aren’t more than a few days a year that are this cold or colder even in midwinter! It was about 3 colder than the average for mid January in Atlanta! I had to really bundle up for the walks of last night and this evening but enjoyed every minute.

Low 22, High 47, today. Yesterday was a raw morning/afternoon though once the front passed. Dropped below freezing by 10 am and stayed that way for about 24 hours.

Walked the dog yesterday at 4 pm and it was 29, flurries, and wind chills close to 10f. Lovely day.
