April snow accumulates in Charlotte, NC, for only 2nd time in more than 100 years

A rare weather phenomenon unfolded over a small area of North Carolina and South Carolina on Tuesday, making the second day of April feel more like the second day of January.Snow fell along the western edge of a strengthening powerful spring storm that tracked up the East Coast on Tueday into Wednesday. This was not a major snowstorm, but it was very unusual for the region for this time of year, and the storm system that brought the rare snowfall became a bomb cyclone, a weather phenomenon in which the central barometric pressure in the storm plummets at least 0.71 inches in 24 hours. This storm saw the benchmark pressure drop occur in under 24 hours.
