Clearing and Cold

Skies clear and temperatures plummet tonight.

Speaking of snow totals, I had 17" as of 3 PM yesterday and another 1.5" this morning. From the big event yesterday in NW NC, I heard totals ranging from 14" to 22". That makes it the biggest snow since 1998 (and for a few spots since 1996). It does NOT rival the Blizzard of '93. Skies clear tonight, and we'll look forward to relatively quiet weather Tuesday through Thursday.

Here are some preliminary snowfall totals across the High Country...
Sugar Mountain 20 inches
Idlewild 20 inches
Sparta 18.5 inches
Linville 18 inches
Boone 17 inches
Banner Elk 16 inches
Jefferson 14 inches

Forecast Discussion

With the snow cover, temperatures will "go deep".

High pressure moves across the Southeast during the next two days. Quiet weather results. The biggest story will be how cold it gets in valleys at night and some radiational fog is possible.

The next storm system to affect us takes shape in Northeast Texas Thursday. High pressure centered off the Atlantic Coast will wedge down into the Southern Appalachians. Overrunning rain develops by late Thursday night and continues Friday. A trailing upper-level low keeps rain in the forecast Saturday as well.

The storm system exits off the Mid-Atlantic Coast Sunday. We'll have partly cloudy skies and seasonal temperatures Sunday.

For a historical perspective... after searching through all the December snow data for Boone this last event is now the biggest December snow on record. The 18.5" of snow over 2.5 days, beat out Dec 26-27, 1969 when we had 18".

Boone December Double Digit Snow events
Dec 8-10, 2018, 18.5"
Dec 26-27, 1969, 18"
Dec 1-3, 1974, 16"
Dec 19-20, 2009, 15"
Dec 17, 1930, 15"
Dec 12-14, 2010, 14"
Dec 25, 1939, 12"
Dec 4, 1971, 11"
