Northwest flow snow showers developed during the evening across the northern mountains, and continued along the Tennessee border through much of the 25th, with heavy snowfall accumulations reached across much of the area shortly after sunrise. Total accumulations ranged from only a couple of inches along the Blue Ridge, to 7 inches in the lower valleys along the Tennessee border. Meanwhile, some of the higher elevations received a foot or more of snowfall.


Yet another upper level disturbance passing just to the north of North Carolina led to a familiar northwest flow snow event for the central North Carolina Mountains this time. As the upper level low pressure system moved to the northeast, a persistent feed off the Great Lakes promoted light upslope snows to persist for several days. In the central Mountains, 4 to 6 inches were reported with localized amounts up to 9 inches.

A narrow band of mostly light snow fell over portions of central NC just after sunrise on the 24th as the upper level disturbance moved east-southeast over VA, and resulted in up to 1/2 inch of snow accumulation on grassy surfaces.
