Our first measurable snowfall of the season was the result of a storm that developed in northern LA/MI, moved to the central NC/VA border bringing considerable snow to portions of TN, KY and WV. During the evening of Jan 6 and it redeveloped off the NC coast.the storm strengthened and move northeastward to a location well offshore of NJ by early morning Jan 7.

A low pressure system located around SE CO on Friday Jan 14, moved east southeast, with the support of a deepening upper level trough strengthened and was located near Charleston,SC Sunday afternoon. Moving northward, the storm stayed onshore which allowed a southeast warm flow to override cold air that remained from a high off the northern New England coast. This produced a brief period of snow in the GFDL region during early evening of Jan 16, before a change over to rain.
