Remembering the New Year's Eve snowstorm of 1970
On December 31, 1970, a low pressure system came out of the Gulf of Mexico and moved northeast toward the Outer Banks. The storm, with plenty of moisture, collided with cold air already in place across the northeast. The end result was a large storm that dumped nearly a foot of snow in some areas of southwest Virginia.
