Winter weather advisory for western NC

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

GREER, SC (AP) — More winter weather is likely in the mountains of western North Carolina.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Ashe, Avery, Haywood, Madison, Mitchell, Swain, Watauga and Yancey counties into Wednesday afternoon.

For most of the area, forecasters say a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is possible in the mountains near the Tennessee state line. The precipitation is expected to change to rain later Wednesday.

Winds are expected to gust up to 40 mph.

But for Ashe and Watauga counties, the weather service says another one to three inches of snow is possible.

The snow has been generated by the superstorm sparked by Hurricane Sandy.

POLL: Tighter gender gap, sharper partisanship – but no change in the bottom line

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

A tightening of the gender gap and a closer race among political independents mark trends among likely voters the past several days, but with no meaningful change to the bottom line in the evenly matched 2012 presidential race.

Nationally, likely voters divide by 49-48 percent between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in the latest ABC News/Washington Post daily tracking poll. That’s exactly where it’s been in seven of the nine ABC/Post tracking poll releases since the start of last week, albeit with movement in some underlying measures – toward Romney in the middle of last week, then easing back since.

In the 11 states designated as battlegrounds by the ABC News Political Unit, moreover, it’s 49-48 percent, Obama-Romney, in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, when all 12 nights of this daily tracking poll are combined.
