Windy and Cold; Mountain Snow

After some morning rumbles of thunder and overnight rain, the cold front has pushed through and is ushering in colder air behind. As a result, it will continue to be windy for the rest of Sunday and even into Monday. As a result of the winds, the mountains will see snow in the higher elevations. In the highest elevations, upwards of 6 inches is possible. By Tuesday morning, many of us will wake up to temperatures in the 30s. Frost is possible on your windshields. A good idea is to purchase windshield washer fluid that has “de-icing” capabilities. This way you will save time by not having to scrape ice, and just run the defroster until you can see.

Modeled forecast snow amounts are below from This event will be limited to the mountains, and nobody across the rest of the Carolinas should see any snow.
