Clearing and Cold
Expect decreasing cloudiness tonight, and with all that snow cover and light wind, temperatures will drop into the teens and lower 20s. Dry, chilly weather continues until we get some late-week rainfall. But it will be all rain this time.
Here are some preliminary snowfall totals across the SW mountains of NC...
Swannanoa 17 inches
Maggie Valley 16 inches
Black Mountain 14 inches

We anticipate decreasing clouds tonight.
Light winds and a clearing sky favor ideal radiational cooling conditions, where longwave radiation escapes quickly into space. Expect very cold temperatures over the next couple of nights as a result. That will result in widespread re-freezing.
Otherwise, Tuesday through Thursday will be dry, but continued chilly. There will be considerable high clouds from time-to-time.
Another Gulf low affects the region Friday and Saturday with additional rainfall. We’re worried that with a leftover snowpack combined with the potential for 1 to 2 inches of rainfall, some flooding may result by late week or early in the weekend.
