Heavy snowfall over the southeast Atlantic Coast on December 22-24, 1989

  • Description:
    "A very rare heavy snowfall event hit the southeast Atlantic coast on December 22-24, 1989. Snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches were reported across coastal Georgia, while amounts of 4 to 15 inches were reported over the coastal areas of North and South Carolina. Snowfall amounts tapered off rapidly inland, with only a trace reported in Columbia, SC (CAE), and Raleigh, NC (RDU). This snowfall provided a rare opportunity to examine the performance of the 'Magic Chart' (Chaston 1989) during a coastal storm along the southeast Atlantic coast. For the purpose of this study, I will refer to a coastal storm as one located far enough offshore so that it's primary effects extend only about 50 to 75 miles inland"--Introduction.
