Episode Narrative On January 20, 2009 the first major winter storm to strike Central North Carolina since 2004 brought 3 to 7 inches of snow to most of the area. A strong upper level disturbace dropped quickly southeast into the mid-Atlantic follwed by a surface of low pressure which developed south of Wilmington. The combination of cold air and moisture surging in from the coast allowed the rain to transition to snow between midnight and 3 am. Snow lasted until afternoon in many locations and did not taper off in the Interstate 95 corridor until 3 pm.
Event Narrative Between 5 to 6 inches of snow fell across the county over a 12 hour period. Roads were quickly covered with snow resulting in several traffic accidents and the closing of local schools and businesses.
