We’ve seen snow reports across parts of South Carolina and North Carolina, including here in the Piedmont Triad.
If you’ve been hoping to see some snow, your wish may come true today!
Temperatures will remain above freezing, so we expect no trouble if we get to see some snow. In areas where it changes to a period of all snow, we could see a light coating (up to 1/2 inch) on elevated areas and grassy surfaces before it has a chance to melt off.
You can get that type of light accumulation even when temperatures are above freezing because snow can lay and build up faster than it melts (depending on precipitation intensity).
Higher elevations will get the most. Mountain areas will see 1-2 inches. Foothill counties stand the best chance to also see some snow and snow/rain mix with 1/2″ to locally 1″ possible in these areas. Again, in the Piedmont, ours will be mainly cold rain, mixed at times with snow and possibly a brief period of all snow. Temperatures will fall back to the 30s, but should stay above freezing.
Still, if you love snow, enjoy the flakes! If you hate snow, it won’t be sticking around, so don’t worry about buying all of the bread and milk this go-round.
