Of Agriculture's Monthly Weather Review Supplement No. 19, publishedon "Thermal Belts and Fruit Growing in North Carolina." Mr. Hurt describes the thermal belt as being similar to a will-o'-the-wisp which always seemed to elude his grasp, but he did draw the conclusion that thermal belts are a reality and that North Carolina seems to have a monopoly on them.

The isothermal belt is a zone in western North Carolina, primarily in Rutherford and Polk Counties, in which temperature inversion resulting in milder temperature contributes to longer growing seasons than in the immediate surrounding region. The phenomenon usually occurs on the southern slopes of mountains and foothills protected from frost and freezing temperatures by higher mountains to the north and northwest.

Thus, a band of warm air is created with colder air above it and colder air below it. This band is a thermal belt. In Polk County, the Tryon-Columbus area is protected on the north and northwest from the cold winds of winter by a crescent of 2, to 3, foot mountains.

These same mountains that help to form the thermal belts. This is the collection page for materials relating to North Carolina, or the North Carolina Collection at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
