What was the 2020-2021 Winter Like in North Carolina?
Winter 2020-2021 in North Carolina saw frigid temperatures and above average amounts of snow. The winter season also saw a lot of rain, which combined with freezing temperatures can led to the dangerous risk of black ice. North Carolina started to see snowfall in early December. While the mountainous areas of North Carolina saw the heaviest snowfall, the piedmont triad area saw between 1-4 inches of snow per storm.
What to Expect for the 2021-2022
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center is estimating a warmer than average temperature for much of North Carolina in the 2021-2022 winter season. The NOAA is forecasting that winter temperatures are 50-60% more likely to be above normal compared to past winter temperatures. However, warmer temperatures may not necessarily mean less snow. A warmer winter can actually lead to an increase in snowfall. The reason for this is that the atmosphere can hold 4% more moisture for every 1°F increase in temperature, so as long as the temperature does not warm above freezing (32°F), there may be a greater dump of snow since more moisture is being held in the atmosphere. Additionally, when the temperature does reach above freezing, snow will turn to rain. After the rain, if the temperature then lowers to freezing, that rain will turn into ice. Ice can be a much higher safety hazard than snow. Sanding and prepping your outdoor spaces this coming winter will be important to reducing ice formation or snow accumulation, which will decrease any slipping or other safety hazards.
