You Probably Won’t See a Map Like This One for a Long Time

Enjoy this map while it still exists, folks.

The United States snow cover map as of Sunday, December 10th featured about 29 percent of the country covered, but it’s where that coverage is that’ll make your head spin a bit.

A huge swath of snow from Louisiana and Texas  all the way to North and South Carolina was still visible on the national snow map as of Sunday afternoon.

With temperatures expected to climb into the upper 30s and 40s, coupled with melting from the sunshine, there’s a pretty good chance the majority of the snow across the South will be gone by Monday, at the latest. The snow should melt by Monday, perhaps Tuesday (the higher terrain of Georgia and the Carolinas will hold onto its snow the longest across the Southeast).

This, of course, comes as the result of Friday’s rare snowstorm across the Southeast, dropping as much as 14 inches of snow in parts of Georgia and over two feet of snow in North Carolina’s high terrain.

So take a good look at that map, because you won’t see it for long – and you probably won’t see it again for a long time.
