A look back at the December 8-9, 2017 South & Southeast snow, a foot fell in some areas

Just a few years ago, folks across parts of the South & Southeast woke up to a blanket of snowfall. An early-season major snowstorm impacted areas from south Texas, northeast into parts of the Carolinas beginning December 7 in Texas, moving across the South and Southeast from December 8-9. This storm system was historic for some areas.

A widespread swath of 2-4 inches fell from southeastern Louisiana, central and southern Mississippi, Alabama, northern Georgia, eastern Tennessee, Upstate South Carolina, and central and western North Carolina. Some of the heaviest accumulations were recorded in central Alabama, northern Georgia, and western North Carolina. Some of these areas saw a foot or more of snow.

Here is a localized look at some of the heaviest snow in Georgia and Alabama from this historic snowstorm.
