Weekend snow possible in NC mountains
RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The first snow of the season could fall this weekend in the mountains of western North Carolina.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for 11 counties from Friday evening through Saturday evening.
The watch is in effect in Ashe, Avery, Buncombe, Graham, Haywood, northern Jackson, Madison, Mitchell, Swain, Watauga and Yancey counties.
The weather service said up to 6 inches of snow could fall in the higher elevations, with up to 3 inches in the valleys.
