Tuesday mountain snow showers followed by brief but BIG cooldown

Posted: Updated:

A fast-moving cold front will bring another quick batch of snow showers in the mountains today, giving some folks near the Tennessee border another inch or two of accumulation. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in place until 7am Wednesday, for the TN border.

Elsewhere throughout the mountains and Upstate, expect a strong breeze, passing clouds, and colder than usual temperatures. 

Highs will only make it to around 39 in Asheville and closer to 50 in Greenville with strong northwest winds upwards of 30 miles per hour. A Wind Advisory is in place until 7am Wednesday for the TN border, as well as Buncombe, Macon, Jackson, and Transylvania counties.

Tonight, bitterly cold air pushes in, with lows dropping to the mid-20s Upstate and into the teens for western NC. A Wind Chill Advisory goes into effect at 10pm for the TN border, northern Jackson County, and Buncombe County, as it could feel below zero at times. 

Wednesday will be sunnier, but colder with mountain highs to near 40 degrees, and Upstate highs in the mid-40s.

We should bounce back quickly Thursday bringing highs back in the upper 40s to middle 50s.

Friday will bring another chance for mountain snow showers, though widespread wet weather pushes into the entire area on Sunday.
