...WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY EVENING
THROUGH MONDAY MORNING...
* WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation possible. Total snow and sleet
accumulations of 3 to 12 inches are possible, along with a
light glaze of ice.
* WHERE...The southern foothills and the piedmont of western North
Carolina, as well as the northern Upstate of South Carolina and
the northeast Georgia mountains. Snow and sleet amounts
approaching a foot would impact mainly the North Carolina
foothills and northwest piedmont as well as the mountain zones.
Snow and sleet amounts will transition quickly down toward the 5
to 8 inch range closer to the North and South Carolina border,
with more sleet mixing in, and lesser amounts southeast of
Interstate 85 and across Habersham County in Georgia.
* WHEN...From Saturday evening through Monday morning.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Travel could become very difficult or
even impossible. Road conditions could deteriorate as early as
Saturday evening, with highway travel continuing to be
impacted through early next week. Visibility may drop to less
than a half mile during periods of heavy snow. Widespread,
prolonged power outages are possible.
A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant
snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue
to monitor the latest forecasts.
