Yes, Greenville averages 4 inches per year with December averaging close to 1 inch, January 2 inches, and February 1 inch. Of course, it has snowed outside of these traditional winter months, but no other month averages an inch or more. If you are wondering about other parts of Eastern NC. Rocky Mount averages 6 inches, New Bern 2 inches, Morehead City 1 inch. You can draw a line northeast and southwest through each of these locations to see how much is average for other areas. - Phillip Williams
