The verdict is in: rolling snowfall inch counts across Haywood

·5 min read

Jan. 16—The Mountaineer collected snowfall inch counts from readers across the county over the course of the day Sunday.

We are still collecting Monday morning inch counts. See below on how to submit your updated tallies.

Thanks to dozens of inch counts reported by the public on Sunday, some interesting trends emerged.

First off, forecasts predicting Haywood would see snowfall between 6" and 12" was spot on. Everyone in Haywood County seems to have cleared at least 6" by Sunday afternoon.

The Cruso area saw the highest snowfall, clocking in at upper end prediction of 12". The top snowfall reports of the day all came from Cruso.

The majority of the county was right in the middle of the predicted range with around 9" by nightfall on Sunday.

Inch counts were predicted to climb by another 1"-3" overnight Sunday and into Monday morning, however.

Another interesting trend mirrors predictions about the storm's approach into the region.

Usually, the Maggie-to-Fines Creek area along the Tennessee line usually gets the brunt of systems moving in from the west.

But this time, the storm came from a southerly direction, so the eastern and southern swath of the county was predicted to see heavier snowfall. And indeed, Canton and Waynesville saw more snow than Maggie and J-Creek, especially during the first half of the storm based on how the system rotated in from the south.

The Maggie area began catching up with the second round of snow in the afternoon, and will likely catch up even more with the final round of snow lingering into Monday morning. But Cruso continued to hold the record as of midnight Sunday.

We'd love some Monday morning totals! Share your final snowfall inches by emailing bjohnson@themountaineer.com, texting 828-507-9141, or finding this post on The Mountaineer's Facebook page. Include your name, your location, the snow inch count and the time recorded.
