...Light Snow and Frigid Temperatures Tonight...

Light snow will be possible this evening through tonight across
the higher elevations of southwest North Carolina. A dusting to
one inch of snow will be possible. This light snow, combined with
the very cold temperatures, will result in some untreated and
secondary roads becoming snow and ice covered. Even minimal snow
accumulation can cause slick and hazardous road conditions. Use
caution if traveling.

In addition, very cold temperatures and brisk northwest winds will
result in frigid wind chills late tonight and Saturday morning
near zero to five below zero. Higher elevations may have wind
chills approaching ten below zero. Limit exposure to the cold,
dress in layers suitable for the cold weather if you must be
outdoors, cover any exposed skin, and ensure animals and pets have
warm shelter from the extreme cold.
