National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
1012 PM EST Sat Jan 19 2019

…ACCUMULATING SNOW AND BLACK ICE EXPECTED LATE TONIGHT INTO
SUNDAY ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS…

.An arctic cold front will sweep across the region after
midnight. Winds in the wake of the front will turn sharply to the
northwest, which will quickly usher in much colder air.
Temperatures are expected to fall to or below freezing quickly,
which would allow moisture from today’s rainfall to freeze
quickly on surfaces, including roads. In addition, a moisture
pushing up the west side of the Appalachians will result in
development of numerous snow showers near the Tennessee border
very late tonight and early Sunday. While significant
accumulations are expected to be primarily confined to the high
terrain along the state line, the combination of light snow
accumulations and black ice could create hazardous driving
conditions even in the lower valleys Sunday morning.
