6:14 am
then we start to see friday into saturday, more of a snow event first. we will start to see some of that pile up, especially in the high mountain regions. first today, a closer look. 8 a.m., not seeing a ton of snow but by lunchtime our western zones, first the darker the blue, the heaeaer the snow bands. the pink, that's the mixed precipitation. so we could see some of that as far south as down into the upstate by late day. so, maybe some schools can be let out early so mom and dad, make sure you are continuing to check the web site. same thing through dinnertime. it can be a dangerous commute, especially in the northern mountains, if you are traveling north on 40. 6 o'clock today showing show showers. then we get a little break. throughout the day on thursday. start to see some rain return. a cold rain. then it turns over to a mix, especially in the high mountain regions, through friday morning. then we start to see that chance for snow return again. speaking of snow, let's take a look today. showing our western zones, who
6:15 am
see that 1-3" range especially. this model really not wanting to give us much back here in the asheville area. pulling in a tenth of an inch. i think we will get more than that. as we look forward in time though, the second round, it is pulling in some really impressive numbers here. we are several days out from friday and saturday though. so, we will continue to tweak the forecast. another issue with the storms, freezing rain and sleet. so, another layer of ice on top of the snow. could mean very dangerous driving conditions. so, snow and a moderate level and black ice for today, into friday and saturday. that's where we start to see a moderate-to-severe level for snow and black ice as well. back here today, 36 degrees. that's our high temperature. so we will make it above freezing at times. still chilly tonight with a chance for some of that snow turning over to freezing rain, slick conditions possible. what about the upstate today? maybe a few snow flurries this morning and again late day. temperatures staying in the
6:16 am

6:37 am
canton, and also leicester, some reports of just some light snow at the moment. so, nothing too intense. we will continue to monitor this throughout the entire day. and temperatures are below freezing in asheville. 23 degrees. 28 down into the upstate right now. winter weather advisory, starts here just a few minutes at 7 a.m.. goes through the next 24 hours. 1-3" of snow expected especially in the high mountain regions. i don't expect the high end of the 3" in buncombe county but we will see some snow today. and that advisory once again goes until thursday morning, but this is just round 1. we have round 2 to talk about. so this is the storm timeline. it starts with snow in our northern mountains and then maybe a mix and then it turns to rain further south. but then, we have greater chances for snowfall and heavier snow, too, friday and into saturday. let's take a closer look today though. 8 a.m. showing a lot of us not
6:38 am
but, in our western zones first, seeing by lunchtime that snow falling, through the french broad river valley, through 3 p.m. so, maybe some early release for schools. and then maybe even a mix late day down into the upstate. holding on to the chance for snow in those northern mountains through dinner time, so the evening commute for mom and dad could be dangerous. we get a break on thursday, until late day we start to see our chances for precipitation go up and it could turn to a mix by late day. and into friday morning. friday, a very good chance for that mix of snow and also some sleet, freezing rain. so, snowfall first. shows our western zones seeing anywhere from 1-3." this model really not giving us much here in the asheville area. i do expect more than what this model is showing us. it's friday, and into saturday, we start to see several inches possible, even down into the valleys. we will tweak that forecast the closer we get. freezing rain and sleet model does show this will be an issue as well, as we look
6:39 am
