What we experienced was the beginning of a bombogenesis system that went on to create blizzard conditions in the Northeast. While much lower than normal temps stayed in place over the Lowcountry for the next five days, the snow and ice remained on roads until they were plowed or treated with salt. Shady areas and shallow bodies of water remained until mild temps in the 60's returned to the Lowcountry on Monday, January 8. All in all it was quite the milestone experience from I-95 to the coast, with no effects felt in the Midlands or Upstate. Many compared this snow to the 1989 snow after Hurricane Hugo, but the 2018 weather event was of much longer duration.
