Episode Narrative A disturbance in the northern branch of the jet stream was able to phase with low pressure in the southern branch of the jet stream over the Southeast Coast on the night of the 18th. These two systems combined to develop a strong area of low pressure that slowly track up the Mid-Atlantic Coast during the 19th. The low was able to tap into moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean causing copious amounts of precipitation to develop. High pressure to the north kept plenty of cold air in place causing the precipitation to fall in the form of snow.
Event Narrative Snowfall amounts were reported between 16 and 21 inches across the county.
