Mping reports are show snow falling just west of Wilmington, NC this morning.. and many locations in SE NC experience a dusting of snowfall overnight. Below you can see the radar scan with an Mping report of snow just west of town. Scanning around social media, and you can see that locations like Lumberton, NC, & Whiteville , NC received a dusting of snow from this coastal low development. These snow showers will move out of the area in the next 6 hours, but it is still neat to see snow falling along the coast of NC!
It’s been several years since I’ve gotten to know what it’s like to be underneath a 40+ dBz snow band and never thought I’d have to go to Whiteville, NC to see it. Aggregates are absolutely massive and occasionally mixed with sleet. #ncwx pic.twitter.com/DG4Qx3NBwS— Eric Webb (@webberweather) March 5, 2019
I’m seeing moderate-heavy snow here in Whiteville under this band of 40+ dBz w/ large dendrites. I have about 0.2” of accumulation on grassy surfaces and it’s accumulating fairly quickly. @NWSWilmingtonNC @NWSRaleigh @NC_CoCoRaHS @NCWeatherhound @RaleighWx @wxbrad @katcampbellwx pic.twitter.com/S1D9PHeq1H— Eric Webb (@webberweather) March 5, 2019
