High Country motorists could be in line to deal with the first winter weather of February starting next week. The National Weather Service forecast on Friday that snow could begin after midnight on Sunday and continuing through Tuesday night.

Brad Panovich, Chief Meteorologist for NBC Charlotte, posted on Friday “It’s way too early to even talk about amounts, but it’s a safe bet the mountains could see a prolonged northwest flow snow event. Which means the confidence in those areas seeing accumulating snows is fairly high right now.”
