A mixed bag of precipitation is likely over the weekend around WNC, and portions of the Piedmont. Cold air will be funneled in ahead of the front, allowing surface temps to dip below freezing as precipitation moves in. It is still uncertain exactly how this system will unfold, but here are my latest thoughts on how the event will unfold! This will be an extend event, and backside snow showers could linger through Monday evening. As heavier precipitation moves into WNC Saturday night, roadways could become slick as snow/sleet/freezing rain falls. Some models show surface temps in the upper 20’s when this heavy precipitation moves in, and that will likely cause travel problems for many. This cold wedge will struggle to reach west of Asheville, and a warm nose could keep those areas less icy. Some models though show the cold wedge all the way into NGA, so uncertainty is the key here. Prepare for an ice storm, and hope it doesn’t come to fruition… I will be live tonight on the AshevilleWX App at 7pm so join me there as I detail out the timing of precipitation, and what p-types are most likely to fall in which areas!
