GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Skies will clear out Tuesday night for the Upstate, while the mountains will continue to see snow showers through midnight.

The best chance for snow Tuesday night will be along the Tennessee border in western North Carolina. An additional 1 to 2 inches of snow will be possible.

The wind will pick up significantly and will be mainly from the NNW around 15 to 20mph, gusting at times to 30mph.

Snow showers will wind down in the mountains Tuesday night, then our entire area will see a freeze.  A freeze warning is in effect from midnight until 10 a.m. Wednesday outside the mountains because the growing season has begun, and cold temperatures could kill sensitive vegetation as lows will drop below freezing in the Upstate and mountains Wednesday morning.

With the threat of snow and windy conditions, parts of the mountains are under a winter weather advisory until midnight for Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Madison, Mitchell, Swain and Yancey counties.

A slow warm-up is in store for us through the week. The next two days remain sunny and slowly warm into the 50s and 60s. Late Thursday into Friday is the next chance for rain, and it could be an overall very soggy day on Friday.
