Freezing Rain
Started: January 21, 2010 at 9 am EST
Ended: January 22, 2010 at 12 pm EST
A very narrow corridor of freezing rain developed along the Blue Ridge escarpment during the morning, and continued off and on through the day. A light glaze of ice developed, mainly on elevated surfaces. However, a few vehicle accidents occurred in the northern mountains.


Cold high pressure was in place across the area as warm, moist air overspread the region in association with a warm front moving north across the region. The result was rain that fell onto sub-freezing surface that produced up to three-quarters inch of ice.
