GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

While most areas across the Upstate may only see rain, the chance of snowand continued flooding is forecast for many across western North Carolina asrain continues to move through the area.

FOX Carolina Meteorologist Alex Wilson said rain showers will continuethrough Wednesday, especially during the morning hours, until heavier rainfallmoves through overnight Thursday.

That rain will transition into snow Thursday afternoon across western NorthCarolina where several counties are under a winter storm watch through Thursdaynight.

Wilson said the counties of Madison, Mitchell, Yancey, Swain, Haywood,Buncombe, Graham, northern Jackson and Macon could see anywhere between two tosix inches of snow across the higher elevations.

While those hoping for snow in the Upstate may only see rain, Wilson saidsome areas - especially in the northern parts of the Upstate - could see arain-snow mix or snow showers Thursday afternoon and evening.

Flooding concerns continue for parts of western North Carolina that have already seen mudslides and rising rivers, like in Maggie Valley where a road was destroyed by a mudslide Tuesday night, according to Haywood County officials. The counties of Madison, Mitchell, Yancey, Swain, Haywood, Graham, northern Jackson and Macon will remain under a flood watching through Thursday evening.

Temperatures will reach highs in the 50s on Wednesday and early Thursday inthe Upstate and mountains, dropping into the digits throughout Thursdayafternoon.
