A strong cold front will blast through during the day on Tuesday, bringing wind, rain and snow in parts of the mountains and Upstate.
FOX Carolina Meteorologist Nicole Papay said the system will bring isolated rain showers near the Tennessee border Tuesday afternoon. FOX Carolina Radar 3D showed storms moving across the border about noon Tuesday. You can track the storm's progress here.
Highs Tuesday are forecast to reach the middle 40s in the mountains and mid-to-upper 50s in the Upstate, according to Papay.
"The mountains should see small pockets of high elevation rain/snow mix around lunchtime, with mid-afternoon changeover to snow showers," Papay said. "The Upstate could see isolated flakes mixed with rain just before the system moves out around 5-8 p.m."
Papay said no accumulation is expected in the Upstate, this will be mostly a rain event. It will also be breezy with winds reaching 30 mph.
The highest elevations along the Tennessee border in western North Carolina could see a dusting of snow up to an inch, though Papay said accumulations will likely be limited to less than half an inch.
As the rain and snow moves out Tuesday night, Papay said wind chills will have the lows reaching as low as in the 20s and teens overnight.
The cooler weather will stick around Wednesday, with the highs only reaching the 40s for everyone.
Since 1892 it has only snowed in the Upstate seven times in November, according to FOX Carolina Chief Meteorologist Kendra Kent.
