— An early snowfall earned Laura Mason of Raleigh a Flexible Flyer sled signed by WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel.

Mason guessed that it would snow 1.2 inches at Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Dec. 4.

The surface observation at RDU showed that snowfall began at 1:59 p.m. Saturday and totaled .8 inches of snow.

Mason's guess was second-closest. The person with the closest guess did not enter a name and did not reply to e-mail from WRAL.
