…A light wintry mix possible this morning…

As of 915 AM…Doppler radar indicated a band of light
precipitation extending from Avery County in North Carolina
northwestward into the Tri-Cities area of northeast Tennessee,
moving eastward. Expect intermittent periods of light sleet to
fall through the late morning hours across the northern mountains
of northwest North Carolina into Grayson and Smyth Counties in
Virginia. While accumulations of sleet should be less than a
quarter-inch, any accumulation could make for difficult travel at
times.

Motorists should be advised to drive more slowly if sleet is
encountered.
