re: The actual yearly snowfall in Fletcher NC - 11
- 6/15/2015
That is ABSURD...Average for what? 1 year, 5 years?, that year?
Historical Seasonal Snowfall amounts range from about an inch up to 4 feet....take the records and AVERAGE THEM TOGETHER, you get a number somewhere around 12"-14" of snow on average. if if 2009-10 was dropped it would still average close to 12-14" Enough said...

Hot and Cool! - 6/2/2011
I lived in mount olive 1975-90, Just a few weather comments, The Summers are terribly hot and and AC is mandatory. Typically Summer night run from the upper 60's to mid 70's daytime temps are typically from 85 to 95 sometimes much hotter in the low 100's and the summer is quite long. Autumn are just wonderful, except for occasion tropical storms and hurricanes along the coast, Pleasant but warm temps start in late September and last threw November, sometimes into December. Snowfall can be highly variable in the area and some years not much more than a dusting or so might occur and other years, such as the 1979-80 winter 22" of snow fell. The average snowfall is said to be 4-5" and that is about correct. Snow usually occurs from late December threw early march, however I had seen it heavy snow there from early Dec to late March, and lite or flurries from late November to late April. Spring it typically short and starts in march and it's good and hot by the end of May. First frost usually occurs late in October or early November and last threw late March or early April. Extremely cold weather does happen, but usually continuous sub freezing temps only last 1-3 days at most, but long periods of cold weather can occurs say a week or so at a time, winters are always dotted with several days each month in the 60's and 70's. Overall, It's long Hot summers and cool to cold Winters, A long pleasant fall and a kinda short variable spring.

Fletcher NC annual snowfall is about 14" on averag - 6/4/2010
Hi Again, just a final note on this subject for now; The site here inducates a annual average of 3.6" which is likely a typo dropping of the 10. I've lived here since 1996, the least year snow total was about 4" and the most this past winter 2009-2010 was 38" that is thirty eight inches. Once again the average should be about 14"

Total Snowfall 2009-2010 - 5/2/2010
Updating as we are well into spring. The total Snowfall this winter is just over 38 inches, that is Thirty-Eight inches, the average here is around 13" with a seasonal range from 4"-38" since 1996. This website states 4" as the average, it's much more, just to let anyone interested in this area. We get 4 solid seasons, a rather pleasant warm summer for the south due to our elevation. The hottest will come in around 92-96, most days in mid summer from about 77-86 . Winters are cold, with both periods of bitter cold and mild weather in January high temps can be as cold as 20 degrees or as warm as 70. The coldest temps are usually between -5 and plus 5. Sperling's site has a lot of wrong info on snowfall totals that seem to be lower rather than higher.

Snowfall average is wrong, the annual average is 1 - 2/23/2010
Hi All, just want you to know this (3.6") figure given on this site is totally wrong, Sperling's has Arden NC a neighboring city at 13.7" annual which is correct, I'm figuring they've dropped the TEN of the 13?...anyway, the 2 towns are only a mile or 2 apart and less than 50 feet elevation change. I've lived here since 1996, the least snowfall year was around 4" and the most; this year we have had 30" (that is 2-1/2 feet!)so far as of Feb 23rd 2010 and we are expecting more, annual average should be around 13-14" for anyone interested.

Average annual Snowfall - 6/29/2009
Historic Average is about 13", lived here since 1996, least snowfall year was about 4-6" most about 15-20" in town...your info is very hit and miss and seems to come from multiple sources, at least standardize it from the weather folks! Even if totals have fallen off the average is much more than stated.
