First Snow Hits County

January 02, 1991

Carroll's first snow began falling at 2:15 p.m. Thursday, dumping more than seven inches before changing to freezing rain about 1 a.m. Friday.

Larry Myers, area weather observer, said some areas receivedas much as nine inches of the fine snow.

"I measured just after 1 a.m. and came up with 7.15 inches," he said. "The warm air, which followed the storm, brought heavy fog and melting snow.

"Our first snow didn't stay around long."

The warmer weekend weather, with temperatures near 70 coupled with rain, rid the county of almost all of the snow by Monday morning.

That was just in time, as the New Year brought back chillier temperatures.
