Light snow fell across much of eastern North Carolina late Tuesday night and early Wednesday making it the snowiest winter in several years. The latest snow was the fourth observed snowfall of the season. Two days had snow showers with no accumulation in November. On January 20 snow fell across all of the area with as much as 3 to 5 inches around the Washington and Greenville. Today's snowfall was not as heavy as the previous storm but many areas did pick up 1 to 3 inches during the late night and early morning. Cold air followed the storm and that will stick around through Thursday night. A big change in the weather pattern will begin on Friday and last through early next week. I'll talk more about that change on Thursday or Friday. Meanwhile, snowfall reports from today include the following:
Central Bertie County - 3", Fountain - 3", Wilson and Tarboro - 2.50", Conetoe, Pantego, Hamilton, Vanceboro and Ernul - 2.00".
Other reports include Goldsboro at 1.50", Washington - 1.25", Bethel - 1.00", Columbia - 1.00", Williamston - .80", and Deep Run, Plymouth, Edenton and Ponzer at .50". Greenville ended up with only a trace.
