Freezing Rain Possible Around WNC Late Tuesday Into Wednesday

Precipitation out in front of a strong low pressure will push into a deep wedge that entrenched over the Southeast beginning late Tuesday night, and will persist through the early hours of Wednesday morning. Upper level temperatures do not appear to be supportive for snowfall, but a layer of frozen air looks to develop between the surface and 5000’. This could be very problematic because of how cold the surface will be when this precipitation moves in. So locations will struggle to push above freezing before it arrives, and surfaces will likely be ripe for ice accretion to occur. Below you can see the radar depiction per the 18z 3km NAM late Tuesday evening.

As you can see, some areas may not see this freezing rain.. but the possibility is certainly there. So the main takeaway here is that I have my eye on Tuesday night into Wednesday for an icy mix to occur around part of WNC. I will update about exact locations that should experience ice as we get a little closer!
