128 Years Since Last White Christmas
We can expect a 30 percent chance of more snow tonight, according to The Weather Channel.
This was the first white Christmas in the Atlanta area since 1882, according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brad Nitz. The Atlanta area did experience snow flurries in 1993, but no accumulation. The third of an inch measured 128 years ago is a record that remains unbroken.
The snowfall began Saturday in Cobb 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning, leaving traces of white on grass and driveways. 2:30 p.m. snow blanketed the ground although the roads were clear. By 5:30 p.m. motorists were driving through slush and patches of snow. At 11:30 p.m. travelers along Lower Roswell Road reported sliding through subdivision streets.
Holiday travelers are inconvenienced by the Northeast snowstorm. New York City is expected to receive 12 to 15 inches of snow through Monday night. Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia have been hit by heavy snow. The AJC has reported thousands of airplane flights canceled. You can read the AJC article by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/f8iXZg.
