|Moisture flowing north over sub-freezing surface air resulted in a light coating of freezing rain during the early morning hours across the foothills and western piedmont of North Carolina. Accumulations of ice were up to 1/8th inch and mainly on trees. Snow and ice covered roads contributed to numerous auto accidents early on the 1st. One accident was fatal (indirect).
Snow and sleet overspread northwestern North Carolina during the early morning hours of the 1st. Snow accumulations of up to 2 inches occurred before changing to sleet and freezing rain. Freezing rain accumulated 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch, downing some trees and tree limbs, before changing to light rain and drizzle during the afternoon and evening.
