Scattered showers are already moving into WNC currently, and will continue through the next couple of days as a strong front makes it way through the area. Some sleet cannot be ruled out today at the onset of precipitation, especially at higher elevations closers to Boone.. but the impacts will be minimal.
Heavier Rain Expected Tuesday
As this front moves through the Midwest, a line of storms will develop on Tuesday.. and could bring some thunderstorms to WNC later in the day on Tuesday. Many locations will receive over 1” of rainfall from this line, and isolated flash flooding could become a concern. Below you can see the most recent GFS total precipitation map through Wednesday morning. Most locations receive around 1” will less as you progress north of Asheville. Locations like Franklin & Andrews have a better chance to see flash flooding with models showing enhanced precipitation across those locations through Wednesday morning.
Snow Showers Possible Wednesday AM
After the front passes, winds will pick up and gust over 30 mph around Asheville, and some flurries cannot be ruled out as temperatures plummet. High temps on Wednesday will barely push into the 40’s and the wind chill will be in the teens. No significant accumulation is expected from these snow showers, but it still too far out to tell if a dust will be possible around Asheville. Stay tuned for another update, and have a great Sunday!
