WIND ADVISORY FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING
Breezy conditions will continue through the afternoon, before decreasing in the valleys tonight and in the mountains Wednesday morning.
Temperatures will hover around 45-50 much of today. As colder air pours in behind a cold front, there will be a few flurries or mountain snow showers tonight into Wednesday morning. A light accumulation around 1" or less is possible for parts of the higher elevations Tuesday night into early Wednesday (little to nothing in the valleys). Be alert for icy spots in the mountains.
It will be windy at times Tuesday and Wednesday making it feel even colder! Clouds clear by Thursday, so even though it will be cold - it will be sunny. Highs Wednesday near 40, 40s to near 50 on Thursday, with lows at night in the 20s.
As high pressure shifts east, winds push in out of the south on Friday and Saturday. This will push temperatures up into the 50s again. Rain looks to develop late Saturday or Saturday night into part of Sunday (possibly ending as some snow as the precipitation ends Monday morning).
Lots of ups and downs are in the forecast the next two weeks. Be sure to check back with us for updates.
