A couple of chances for snow enter the forecast for parts of the Carolinas and Tennesee

The weather is changing as we continue to advance through fall and that’s even more evident with snow chances entering the forecast for parts of the Carolinas over the next week. The first chance for quick-hitting snow arrives tonight for the mountains of North Carolina. A strong upper-level low, with quite a bit of dynamic cooling, will allow for the snow levels to fall to around 5,000 feet overnight. So whatever moisture remains, will fall in the form of snow above 5,000 feet. It also appears up to 1 inch of accumulations is possible above 6,000 feet.

Another chance for snow looks possible next weekend. There are still a lot of questions, but another storm system will swing east, pulling in a strong cold front. This will allow temperatures to quickly fall and it appears there will still be enough moisture behind the cold front for a quick bout of snow across the mountains of eastern Tennesse and western North Carolina overnight Friday (November 5) into Saturday morning (November 6). This is over a week out so a lot of changes and fine-tuning are likely, but models are suggesting this is a real possibility. For more details on this possible snow event, click here.
