conditions outside. 3 degrees right now in cat cataloochee ski area. leicester carpet sales skycam network, clear skies for now but this will change. we have snow in the forecast accumulating snow at that. we will have that in a second. right now, these clear skies helping our temperatures contain rue to drop this morning. 12 is the low temperature so far at the ashville airport. unseasonably cold. 27 is normal for this time of year. so 12 in asheville, 11 burnsville, 15 in forest city. waking up right now in greer to 17 degrees and 15 in franklin. 10 in andrews. but, let's factor in the wind. it's definitely making it feel colder in asheville. so very steady this morning at 10 miles per hour. 5 in forest city and 7 down into anderson. so this is the wind chill. it feels like 1 below zero in buncombe county. so, frostbite, hypothermia, a threat this morning make sure you cover any exposed skin especially if you have to work outside.

2 p.m. this afternoon, it's still feeling very cold in burnsville. feels like 4. but 25 down into brevard. 8 in asheville. 14 in lake lure. throughout dinner time, feels like 11 in asheville. the wind won't be quite as bad once that wind advisory expires but still going to stay very cold throughout the entire day. advisory expires at noon today. above 3500 feet especially could feel like 20 below zero this morning. so, just keep that in mind if you live in those zones or heading north. satellite radar does show high dry pressure giving us nice sunny skies today. but an upper level disturbance is what is going to give us a quick shot at snow with as early as tomorrow morning. 8 a.m. today, showing clear skies through lunchtime as well. dinnertime, it will be clear and cold. not quite as cold as it is this morning though. watch as these clouds begin to enter the region. there we go. 5 a.m.. starting to see that light snowfall into our northern mountains through 8 a.m. as well.
6:37 am
heavier snow bands in our western zones. it looks like a mix even as far south as into greenville through dinnertime. that will leave our region with a slight chance early thursday and then another round of snow is possible for friday. that is likely. how much snow are we polar vortex ing to see through 6 p.m. tomorrow? you will see these blue areas, that is anywhere from 1-3" down into the valleys looking more like half an inch, maybe an inch at best in those higher higher elevations. 30 degrees fiduciary a high temperature, 16 for a low temperature tonight. greenville 38 degrees, so still chilly. clouds developing tonight. it will be chilly as well. seven-day forecast does show that chance for rain/snow not only tomorrow and thursday, but again on friday and saturday. temperatures staying cold for the weekend. in the 30s. in the upstate, also a chance for a mix tomorrow morning. right now, let's get another traffic check with jaclyn.
6:38 am
patton avenue is still the only problem spot we are dealing with this evening no. there are still those delays heading towards i-240, so keep this in mind before heading that way. if you are taking this stretch of i-26 soon, it is a nice and clear commute for you. the drive from hendersonville to asheville will take you 17 minutes. and finally, here is a look at how tunnel road is shaping up. so, the drive from the parkway ramp to i-240 westbound is timing out to 4 minutes for you. that's look at your on-time traffic report brought to you by the wired mouse. holly and jay? >>holly: chef chris haul from twisted laurel is with us as restaurant week kicked off today. >>jay: earlier he made trout dip. what is next? >> a fried eggplant stack this time. i have eggplant. it's just been flour, egg wash and bread crumbs, set at 375 degrees deep fryer, fry it to a nice crispy brown and in this saute pan i have a little olive oil and garlic going.
