  1. I remember Boone receiving around a half a foot of snow in mid-April 1983 while I was attending ASU. Hard to believe that was 35 years ago!

    With comparisons made to the weather pattern of March and April 1962, I hope we don't have a repeat of the torch that ensued in late April 1962 and continued throughout the month of May 1962. One side note, in a diary I was keeping in 1978 I made an entry on April 8 that the trees were in full leaf in Monroe, North Carolina. I noted it was a remarkable transition from bare trees to full leaf during the first week of that month.

    A post I made a year ago during the February 2017 mega torch. Lest we forget the mid-March snow and the devastating hard freeze that followed afterwards. http://www.weather.gov/ilm/2017March12Snow

    Around three inches. You and @griteater have done real well the past two winters. My brother attended Davidson College back in the 70's and he would send me postcards detailing the amounts of snow he got while we had nothing but rain in Monroe. It's amazing how the rain/snow line sets up in Northern Mecklenburg County. Strangely, Monroe has had far more snow than KCLT over the past twenty years.

    Congratulations Charlotte on recording your first below normal average monthly temperature since January 2016. Charlotte's previous below normal average monthly temperature prior to January 2016 occurred in February 2015. What a streak! Was January an anomaly or will February follow suit?

    It's not often Charleston's season-to-date snowfall exceeds DC's. Charleston - 5.3" Washington National - 3.1" Dulles - 5.0"

    Today is the fortieth anniversary of the great blizzard that struck the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes regions. As an eighth grader, I was keeping a weather diary and I made an entry forty years ago tonight that my home barometer bottomed out at 29.04". One thing I clearly remember about that storm was the hellacious windstorm that lasted well into the next day. Charlotte had wind gusts to near 60 mph. Needless to say, there was quite a bit of tree damage.

    With all the time and effort you put into model analysis and PBP, I always root for you to cash in. It worked out very well for you last winter! Thank you for all you contribute to the board. Hopefully everyone cashes in this go-around. To make it truly 1980's old school TWC, you need to have the Yellowjackets' "And You Know That" playing in the background.

    I remember that snow being so dry that you could literally blow 8" of snow off your vehicle with your breath.
  11. January Observations

    Be careful. Reminds me of a story my mother told me that occurred during the February 1958 cold wave when my parents were building the family home. Workers had set up a salamander heater in the kitchen that overheated and caused a fire. Being that the house was a month away from being completed, the building contractor went on a foul-mouthed tirade berating the workers since he had to absorb the damage costs caused by the fire. Records set during that cold spell still stand today in Charlotte.

    One for the ages in Charleston and the Low Country. I was hoping for a January 1800 repeat in Charleston and Savannah. Video of the snowfall at Boone Hall Plantation.

    It's disconcerting to see rain chances dwindling for Monday. The Central Carolinas up into Virginia are in dire need of rain. I have a client in Monroe, NC who has received less than four inches of rain since the beginning of September.

    Interesting distribution of snowfall throughout the South so far this season.
