Cold blast arrives, along with heavy mountain snow

Posted: Updated:

Snow is back for the mountains as another Nor’easter impacts parts of New England. The Upstate will get a little rain and much colder air through mid-week.

A winter storm warning is in effect along the TN border, and many counties are under a winter weather advisory including Buncombe. 4-6 inches of snow will fall in the high mountains, with 1-3 farther south. Otherwise, expect cold and very windy weather with highs struggling to 40 degrees and gusts up to or exceeding 40 mph possible.

For the Upstate, sun and clouds continue today with breezy, cool conditions as well as highs reach the low 50s.

Thursday starts cold with temperatures near or below freezing, but it will be slightly milder later in the day with highs reaching the upper 50s to near 60 degrees in the Upstate and right around 50 degrees in the mountains. Some clouds build in for Friday, but temperatures stay in the 50s. 

Over the weekend, a "wedge" of cooler air will cause highs to stay WELL below average. Expect some rain to push into the mountains Saturday and arrive in the Upstate Saturday night into Sunday. Saturday's highs will stay in the 50s, and Sunday's highs could very well stay in the 40s! 

Next week, the "wedge" of cold air may hang tough at least for Monday, suggesting highs may remain in the 40s. By Tuesday, a warm-up should begin!
