The first snow flurries of this year's fall season were observed on Tuesday.
Many Watauga County residents noticed them county-wide during the afternoon, as observed on social media. Snow and/or snow flurries are not that uncommon in October for the High Country, but it is typically closer to Halloween when we see the first.
For a point of reference:
