The first hint of winter weather could happen to end the weekend, mainly very late Sunday night/overnight into Monday morning.
Stacie Hanes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, tells WataugaOnline, “We are expecting only a dusting to a few tenths of an inch. We will have the cold air, but mainly at 4000 feet and above is where we would be looking for any snow accumulations. Overall the precipitation chances are in the 40-60% range in those areas.”
