Special Statement
Issued: 10:13 AM EST Jan. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Brief wintry weather possible across portions of the North
Carolina mountains today...

Moisture will overspread the North Carolina mountains today from
the west. With temperatures expected to linger around freezing
into early afternoon, especially across the higher elevations, a
brief wintry mix of light freezing rain, sleet, and/or snow will
be possible. While the most significant accumulations are
expected in areas from Avery County north, where a Winter Weather
Advisory is in effect, very light accumulations of snow and
sleet, generally less than an inch, along with a light glaze of
ice will be possible across the remainder of the area, especially
above 3500 feet. Some slick spots may develop on bridges or
overpasses, but any accumulations should melt as temperatures warm
and precipitation changes to all rain later this afternoon into
the evening.
