Long range models continue to resolve a possible winter storm that looks to move through WNC next weekend, and that could cause problems for some. There are a multitude of possibilities still on the table regarding how this system will unfold.. but adequate cold air does appear to be embedded before the storm arrives, and could stay entrenched throughout the duration of the event. What that means is that there is a likelihood that this precipitation could fall as snow or ice.
Will It Be Snow, Ice, Or Just Rain?
As I previously stated, and as with most southeast winter storms, a great deal of uncertainty lies ahead as we approach this weekend. The GFS models shows a long duration multiple wave event, whereas the Euro shows minimal precipitation, but somewhat cooler temps. Models will get a better idea as week move through Tuesday and Wednesday, so be sure to download the AshevilleWX App where I will be doing live video updates all week! Below is the snowfall map from the most recent run from the GFS run. This is only one model depiction, and should only be taken with a grain of salt.. but models are hinting at the possibility. Join me tonight at 7:30pm on the AshevilleWX App where I will detail out the most recent model runs!
