a strong line of storms is developing in Eastern TN and will move into WNC this afternoon. Some lsolated flash flooding cannot be ruled out with this system with over 1” of rainfall expected through the evening. Higher elevations above 3500’ on the NC/TN will see snow showers early Wednesday morning, but I don’t think anything more then a stray flurry will be possible around Downtown Asheville. The main story with this system will be the return to cold and the chance for some thunder as the system moves through.
Long Range GFS Indicates Snow Next Week
There has been some rumblings of a snowstorm around WNC next week, and I have my eye on the potential. It is still to far out to discuss it in too much detail though because there is very little model consensus. Both the Euro and Canadian models show the system but are too warm for snow. I look for a these to come to some agreement over the next few days and we could be looking at two separate storms. Stay tuned, I will update when the picture becomes a bit more clear!
