Daily Weather Briefing for Wednesday, March 13, 2019





Blizzard of '93 Anniversary Today

The Blizzard of '93, or as it is known nationally, The Storm of the Century, hit Macon County 26 years ago on this date in 1993. By the time the storm was over, upwards of 20 inches or more (depending on your location in the county) was on the ground. The Coweeta Experimental Station recorded 25.5 inches of on the 13th. That amount still stands as the one-day official record for snowfall in Macon County since records started being kept in 1872. Those of us who were alive during that storm will never forget it.

Here are a few links to more information about the storm:
