Wintry Start to November

Snow in November is certainly not unheard of around here, but it is quite the shock after the 60’s and 70’s we saw just earlier this week. Snow this morning will gradually taper off later this morning for the greater Asheville area. However, north and west of town, upslope snow showers and flurries will continue into this evening, favoring areas right along the TN/NC border. See our Total Snow Accumulation Map for details. Sunday will be chilly, but with more sun. We really begin to moderate, temp-wise, as we head into early next week.

The RaysWeather.Com 2014-2015 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available, brought to you by Chuck Eyler Nationwide Agency. Snow-lovers will be excited.

Morning snow gradually tapers off later this morning for the mountain valleys, but NW flow snow continues through tonight for the favored upslope areas along the TN/NC border…

The potent storm system that we have been talking about for days now is spinning through SW NC and the upstate of SC this morning. With this system, a band of heavy, wet snow developed across parts of the area giving a slushy inch or two in spots. For those not waking up to snow on the ground means the heavier band of snow just missed you. That band will hang around for a short time this morning, but the heaviest of the snow will taper off later this morning and may actually change to light rain or drizzle. However, for the higher elevations and areas closer to the TN/NC border, it will remain mostly snow with snow showers/flurries continuing through the evening. Those locations will see the highest snowfall totals with this event. For our latest thinking on snowfall, check out our Accumulation Map.

Other than the snow, the other issues today will be the wind and the cold. Sustained winds of 15-25 mph can be expected with gusts of 40-45 mph. Be aware that the wind and the wet snow can cause some tree and power line damage. Temperatures today will struggle to reach the 40 degree mark. The wind will make it feel even colder. By tonight, wind chill values in the single digits and teens are expected.

Temperatures begin to moderate on Sunday with full sunshine by the afternoon. It will still remain below normal, though. A quick jump up in temperatures occurs early next week thanks to a developing southerly wind. The next front comes through late Wednesday or Wednesday night with a few showers possible. More cold air is likely behind that front for the latter half of the week.
