EVEN IF NOT REFLECTED IN THIS LIST DUE TO A LACK OF REPORTS...EVERY
AWOS OR ASOS IN CENTRAL NC REPORTED AT LEAST ONE HUNDREDTH OF
PRECIPITATION WITH A SURFACE TEMPERATURE AT OR BELOW FREEZING SUNDAY
MORNING. THE HIGHEST ICE ACCUMULATIONS CENTERED OVER WAKE COUNTY WERE
MOST LIKELY A RESULT OF BOTH A HIGHER DENSITY OF REPORTS THERE...AS
WELL AS THE PROXIMITY OF THE AXIS OF RELATIVELY HIGHEST LIQUID
EQUIVALENT PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS IN A 50 MILE WIDE CORRIDOR CENTERED
AROUND US 15/501 HIGHWAY. IT IS PROBABLE THAT ICING OF SIMILAR
MAGNITUDE AS THOSE REFLECTED IN WAKE COUNTY OCCURRED IN THAT
CORRIDOR...PARTICULARLY NEAR THE VA BORDER WHERE SURFACE TEMPERATURES
WERE RELATIVELY COLDEST.
