European Model Indicates Ice Possible Thursday
The most recent European model indicates that surface temperatures will hover right around freezing as heavy precipitation moves in early Thursday morning. Sleet and freezing rain are possible with this layer of frozen air at the surface. You can see below the radar depiction of the 12z European model for early Thursday morning. Cold Air Damming will be entrenched against the mountains as high pressure pushes the cool air in.
Will An Precipitation Be Snow?
Snow cannot be ruled out, and even a few flurries will be possible Tuesday night into Wednesday, so there will be multiple chances for snowflakes over the next 3-4 days. Some precip on Thursday could also fall in the form as snow, but there is still a lot of uncertain with this evolving event. On the backside of the front that passes through Thursday, the upper level low could also drop some snow on WNC. Like I said, a great bit of uncertainty exist moving forward so stick with me and I will keep you updated as we move forward!
