Some of the first snow of the season fell Monday, as the high mountains of the Appalachians were coated with several inches of snow.
Allyson Virden, resident manager of the Mt. LeConte, Tenn., lodge, reported 3 inches of snow Monday morning. She said it was the biggest first snow since 1979.
Another half inch of snow fell into Tuesday as the low overnight was 23 degrees.
Mt. LeConte was not the only location with snow. Mt. Mitchell reported a trace of snow Tuesday morning. According to the NWS, the earliest measurable snowfall was on this date back in 1980.
Snowshoe Mountain, W.Va., also reported light snow.
The same storm system that brought clouds, rain and cool weather to the Northeast ushered a cold front farther south into the Appalachians, dropping temperatures throughout the mid-Atlantic.
Cities including Richmond, Charlotte and Nashville have all reported highs significantly below normal over the past several days. High temperatures were running 10 to 15 degrees below the normal high for this time of the year.
For areas including Nashville and Charlotte, the overnight lows are more of what is expected in the middle of November.
Overnight into Tuesday, all three cities had the coldest nighttime temperatures of the season, according to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Andy Mussoline. For Nashville, it was the coldest weather since April 10.
This cold trend will soon give way to near-normal temperatures by Thursday and will last into the weekend.
