Earliest Snow in Columbia, SC
November 1st, 2014 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.
As I predicted two days ago, the earliest snows on record are beginning to occur in the Carolinas.
Columbia, SC has just experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records, beating the Nov. 9, 1913 earliest snow record by 8 days. Current South Carolina weather shows it’s still snowing in Greenville, SC.
The Christian Science Monitor is reporting Greenville was especially hard hit with downed trees and power outages. The Smokey Mtns received up to 16 inches overnight.
Here is the latest model forecast of total snowfall ending at midnight tonight (graphic courtesy of Weatherbell.com):
