I’m liking the trend we seem to be in. Every few days lately we’ve seen a little moisture connect up with some unexpected, colder air that makes for a bit of snow.

Late on Saturday evening as I was watching one of the most frustrating college football teams in the country (my Gamecocks) beat Tennessee, my phone began to beep, alerting me that SNOW was falling atop Beech Mountain’s 4500′ to 5500′ elevations. Some friends of ours live above Beech Mountain Resort at about the highest point of the mountain and they posted this dusting late last night.
Not sure what the elevation is at their home, but there is a short walk to an overlook, where you can look down about 500′ to the ski area. So it’s up there!
We saw flurries here at my home, which is at 3300′ elevation.

None of the CoCoRaHs reporters posted any measurable snowfall for any location in North Carolina, so I guess we’ll call it a TRACE.
Snowshoe Saw Snow…for the 3rd time in October
The capture below shows the after-effects of another burst of snow there this morning.
Snowshoe also has a NWS reporting station on the mountain (wish they all did) and here is a capture of the official data posted via their official reporting station…reflecting the 1.0 of snowfall.
Surprisingly, Canaan Valley did not see any snow as David Lesher posted, “Light rain and drizzle continuing overnight with temperatures slowly falling through the 30s to 33F at daybreak. No snow or ice.
