Episode Narrative A full latitude trough was moving through the eastern United States. An associated area of surface low pressure was moving from the central into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. An Arctic air mass lingered across the eastern U.S. Very cold air aloft and the cold Arctic surface air mass combined with the overrunning Gulf moisture and upper dynamics to produce the most widespread snow observed across north and central Georgia in several years. All 96 counties within the Peachtree City, Georgia forecast area observed measurable snow, indeed a rarity at any time. Average snowfall across most of north and central Georgia was in the two to three inch range. Snowfall amounts ranged from less than one inch in Telfair county, to one inch in Dade county, to three to four inches in the Atlanta metropolitan area, to six inches in parts of Stewart county. Specific details of the maximum snowfall observed or reported for each county are as follows; Baldwin - 3.0 inches, Banks - 3.5 inches, Barrow - 2.0 inches, Bartow - 3.0 inches, Bibb 3.0 inches, Bleckley - 4.0 inches, Butts - 4.0 inches, Carroll - 2.5 inches, Catoosa - 2.0 inches, Chattahoochee - 3.0 inches, Chattooga - 2.0 inches, Cherokee - 3.5 inches, Clarke - 5.0 inches, Clayton - 4.0 inches, Cobb - 4.0 inches, Coweta - 3.0 inches, Crawford - 4.0 inches, Crisp - 1.0 inch, Dade - 1.5 inches, Dawson - 2.0 inches, DeKalb - 4.0 inches, Dodge - 3.0 inches, Dooly - 4.0 inches, Douglas - 3.5 inches, Emanuel - 4.0 inches, Fannin - 2.5 inches, Fayette - 4.0 inches, Floyd - 3.0 inches, Forsyth - 3.0 inches, Fulton - 4.0 inches, Gilmer - 3.0 inches, Glascock - 5.0 inches, Gordon - 3.0 inches, Greene - 4.0 inches, Gwinnett - 3.0 inches, Hall - 3.0 inches, Hancock - 3.0 inches, Haralson - 3.0 inches, Harris - 4.0 inches, Heard - 2.5 inches, Henry - 4.0 inches, Houston - 3.0 inches, Jackson - 2.5 inches, Jasper - 3.5 inches, Jefferson - 2.0 inches, Johnson - 2.0 inches, Jones - 3.0 inches, Lamar - 2.0 inches, Laurens - 4.0 inches, Lumpkin - 2.0 inches, Macon - 2.0 inches, Madison - 4.0 inches, Marion - 2.0 inches, Meriwether - 3.0 inches, Monroe - 2.0 inches, Montgomery - 1.5 inches, Morgan - 4.0 inches, Murray - 2.0 inches, Muscogee - 3.0 inches, Newton - 2.5 inches, Oconee - 2.0 inches, Oglethorpe - 3.0 inches, Paulding - 4.0 inches, Peach - 4.0 inches, Pickens - 3.0 inches, Pike - 3.0 inches, Polk - 4.0 inches, Pulaski - 2.0 inches, Putnam - 3.0 inches, Rockdale - 3.0 inches, Schley - 3.0 inches, Spalding - 4.0 inches, Stewart - 5.0 inches (some reports of 6 inches), Sumter - 3.0 inches, Talbot - 4.0 inches, Taliaferro - 4.0 inches, Taylor - 3.0 inches, Telfair - 0.5 inch, Toombs - 2.0 inches, Towns - 2.0 inches, Treutlen - 3.0 inches, Troup - 4.0 inches, Twiggs - 4.0 inches, Union - 2.5 inches, Upson - 4.0 inches, Walker - 2.0 inches, Walton - 4.0 inches, Warren - 4.0 inches, Washington - 4.0 inches, Webster - 3.0 inches, Wheeler - 3.0 inches, White - 3.0 inches, Whitfield - 2.5 inches, Wilcox - 2.0 inches, Wilkes - 4.0 inches, and Wilkinson - 4.0 inches.
