A slow moving storm system tracking from the Gulf of Mexico northeast along the Carolina coast interacted with cold air in pace across the state resulting in a prolonged period of snow which changed over to freezing rain as the storm approached. The heaviest snowfall occurred across the Sandhills to the South Carolina border and in the west across the foothills and mountains. A mix of snow and freezing rain fell across the Triangle and Triad making travel hazardous and resulted in a number of vehicle accidents.
