Episode Narrative March was ushered in with the biggest and for most of the area the only snowstorm of the 2008-2009 season. A complex and deep surface and upper-level system brought rain to much of the area late 28 February, which changed over to snow in the western HSA. A secondary low pressure area tracked over the Carolinas to the Virginia coast early on March 1, allowing all areas to change over to snow. Snow totals ranged from around a few inches in parts of the the piedmont to over a foot in some mountain locations.
Event Narrative Snow and mixed precipitation up to 5 inches in parts of the county caused travel difficulties in some areas.
