Good Monday evening. It was a snowstorm that had one of the sharpest accumulating cutoffs that I have ever seen. You could literally drive 20 miles and go from no snow to 4 or 5 inches of the white stuff.
Don’t believe me? Check out this amazing satellite shot from space that shows what a distinct cutoff there was:
That was taken shortly after daybreak this morning. The dark colored areas show the bare ground. The white areas show the varying levels of snowfall. That is an amazing thing to look at and really shows where the moisture ran into a wall of drier air that was filtering in from the north. It was that dry air that kept the accumulating snows across the south.
For those who weren’t happy to see the snow missed their backyard. Keep this in mind… the power outages will have a longer life span than the snow that caused them. Most of the snow will be gone by early Tuesday, while the power won’t be on to some areas until later this week.
Enjoy your evening and take care.
