It was just unbelievable that it could snow 20 inches in Raleigh and Durham in one day.

Twenty years ago, central North Carolina saw the most snowfall it has ever seen. "It just kept snowing," ABC11 Chief Meteorologist Chris Hohmann recalls. "It was just unbelievable that it could snow 20 inches in Raleigh and Durham in one day." Snowfall started the evening of January 24 and continued through January 25. "It could happen again one day, but it is very unlikely that we'll see that in our lifetime," Hohmann said. This wasn't your typical North Carolina snow flurries. The snow was falling at around 4 inches per hour--an unheard of number in the Tar Heel state.
