Early April Snowfall Possible Around WNC Next Week

The sun is out, its beautiful outside.. and I am talking about snow? Yes, unfortunately… Long range models are hinting at a strong upper level low moving through WNC beginning Tuesday morning, and persisting through Wednesday. Friday and Saturday look very nice around WNC with temperatures in the upper 60’s so please get out and enjoy it!

What Do Models Show?

Models show a strong upper level low capturing a surface low and enhancing over the SE of the United States. Then that low pressure bombs out off the coast of NC. With the heavy rate of precipitation and the favorable temperatures for snow aloft, accumulation cannot be ruled out. Below you can see the most recent 12z Euro and the coinciding snowfall map.
