Our snow event has ended, and altogether, the system behaved as expected. The Triad itself got between 1" and 2" in most instances, with heavier amounts in southern sections. Troy reported 5." Amounts were lightest in the Virginia border counties.
Much of the Charlotte region received between 2-3" with heavier amounts occurring when you got further east and south.
Columbia, SC reported 7," and numerous spots up and down the Carolina coast received 3"-5"....very impressive.
Today, sunshine will help out with the road conditions, but it will be cold and breezy with highs in the upper 30s to around 40.
A frigid night is on tap tonight with lows in the lower 20s...maybe even some upper teens in spots. Any liquid remaining on the roads will quickly re-freeze, so watch out for slick spots on roads later tonight and tomorrow morning.
Our next system will roll in by Monday morning. At this point, that system looks like a rain and snow mixture....we will see.
