Episode Narrative A deep full latitude trough was shifting from the central United States into the eastern United States during this period. Arctic air remained firmly entrenched across much of the central and eastern U.S., but was marginal across the southeast U.S. However, very cold temperatures aloft associated with a short wave embedded within the upper trough, helped to bring a band of moderate snow across much of north and the northern parts of central Georgia during the evening of the 9th and into the early morning hours of the 10th. Snowfall averaged from 1.0 to 2.0 inches across most north Georgia counties, with 0.5 to 1.0 inch across the northern portions of central Georgia. The depth of the cold air aloft kept all of the winter precipitation in the form of snow with this event. Surface and ground temperatures were in the upper 30s to lower 40s at the beginning of the event and failed to drop much below 32 at any time during the event. Snowfall accumluations on roads were confined to bridges and overpasses and compared to previous snow/ice events of the 2010 - 2011 winter season, this event had a very minimal and brief impact on travel conditions across north Georgia. The snow melted quickly after sunrise on the 10th as the upper trough moved east of the area, skies cleared, and temperatures warmed into the low and mid 40s by afternoon. Interestingly enough, after a fairly harsh winter to this point in the season, a major upper atmospheric pattern change subsequent to this event from a deep eastern U.S. trough to a highly progressive, zonal flow, resulted in the remainder of February being well above normal. For example, the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport saw its last freezing temperature for the winter season on February 12, 2011.
