Forecasters are calling for snow across North Carolina including Moore County.  Moore County could see up to an inch of snow sometime Monday afternoon into Monday evening.  Most of the county is in the projected path except for the southern most tip of the county.

Earlier in the year, Moore County was hit with two snow storms.  The first snow storm surprised Moore County on January 3rd. Forecasters were predicting just a dusting of snow, and the county ended up getting six inches.  It left motorists and school children on buses stranded for hours.

Round two snow storm came barreling in Moore County January 17th leaving several inches of snow. North of Carthage received over six inches of snow, Southern Pines measured in at five inches, Pinehurst was at almost three and a half inches, and Aberdeen saw just about two inches of snow.

If the snow does fall on Moore County tomorrow, it’s not expected to be a snow storm like we had in January.

“While accumulations will be primarily limited to grassy surfaces across central NC, isolated slushy/slick spots will be possible during later in the day,” said North Carolina Emergency Management.
