The High Country is in line to get more snow this weekend, however accumulations won’t amount to a whole lot. Friday night rain, along with a cold front, will allow for the change over to snow late today. The National Weather Service says that by daybreak Saturday up to an inch is possible along the western slopes, which includes near the North Carolina/Tennessee line and Beech Mountain. Low temperatures are forecast in the lower 30s tonight with wind gusts up to 40mph possible.
Snow showers and flurries are likely for Saturday, but the Weather Service says accumulations look to be generally light. The winter precipitation continues into Sunday where low temperatures into the teens and single digits are forecast for the area. It is possible that a Wind Chill Advisory could be issued for the last part of the weekend and the start of next week.
Temperatures next week are forecast to be considerable colder than this week, with highs only in the 20s and lows in the teens for the start of the week.
