Winter Weather Update 5 pm (3-23-18)

Good Friday afternoon, we continue to monitor for the potential of mixed precipitation starting early tomorrow morning and lasting through the morning hours of Sunday.


A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for NW Burke, Caldwell and McDowell Counties until Noon Sunday. We have updated our thoughts on this storm system and it includes a snowfall map through Sunday morning…

One thing that we would like to stress is snowfall potential will be very much elevation dependent...also once we get to late Saturday and Saturday night, some light glaze of icing is possible but again, it will be elevation dependent. Best chances will be right along the Blue Ridge Parkway.


Our weather team will have further updates on this storm system through the duration of the event.
