    Nice pics Eric, and video Summey. There was a video of some folks playing ice hockey on a pond in Charlotte (in Weddington), but I can't seem to find it now.

    Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) / Subsequent -NAO / Upper Southeast Snowfalls Two weeks after the SSW, a retrograding NAO blocking episode ensued. The NAO was negative every day from 2/25 to 3/21, or 25 straight days. 500mb pattern during the NAO blocking episode shown in the chart below. While the Atlantic pattern was favorable for wintry precipitation in the southeast, the Pacific pattern was unfavorable. In spite of that, the northern sections of the southeast states have seen a few wintry events in March.
