Forecasters warn of dust plume headed to mountains
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Forecasters warned of a dust plume that was headed for the western North Carolina mountains Friday afternoon.
The National Weather Service issued a statement that said a strong storm system had kicked up a plume of dust in the Central Plains on Thursday. According to the statement, the high winds associated with the low pressure system had pushed the plume into the western slopes by Friday afternoon.
Forecasters said the dust plume will continue moving east through Friday, resulting in hazy conditions across much of the mountains. They said that visibilities could be reduced to about three miles at times.
