Of course we did not wake up to any snow piles here in the South. It was after all just a few silly flakes. Tumultuous winds came instead.
Oops, wait, here’s more news that I just found!
On Sunday, there’s a chance of snow in the Piedmont as a low-pressure system moves from the Gulf of Mexico to the Carolina coast. On the northwest side of the low, there should be a narrow but moderate snow chance.
Be ready for just about anything this week with this very cold air locked in through next week.
White Christmas for Charlotte?
If you are wondering, the chance, historically, of a white Christmas in Charlotte is about 2 percent. We’ve only had accumulating snows three times in 132 Christmases and the last time was in 1947.
- 5.8 inches in 1947
- .2 inches in 1909
- 4 inches in 1880
I’d put this year’s chances — due to this cold pattern we are in — closer to 10 percent.
