January 9, 2011

An upper level disturbance tracked across the northern Gulf of Mexico, drawing abundant moisture into the Southeastern U.S. Prior to the arrival of the moisture, a large, cool area of high pressure was entrenched over the southern United States, and this helped set the stage for one of the more significant winter weather events in years.  2" to a foot of snow fell from just south of the metro Atlanta area to the TN border. Areas south of the snow saw ice up to 3/4" thick.  Atlanta schools were closed for 5 straight days.
