Two years ago today, an Arctic cold front and low-pressure system combined to dump eight to 10 inches of snow on the Outer Banks and across eastern North Carolina, where the white stuff is relatively rare.

It was the second major winter storm to impact eastern North Carolina in the first three weeks of 2018. A storm on January 3-4, produced heavy snow, strong winds and bitter cold, the National Weather Service said.

Here’s a look back, in video and photos, of SnOBX 2018.
