As we start Severe Weather Awareness Week across the Carolinas, we are tracking some active weather for tomorrow! I don't expect severe weather, but some rain and snow will move in for Tuesday... here's the timeline:
Tuesday 7am-3pm: Clouds increasing, isolated showers.
Tuesday 3pm-9pm: Showers become more widespread. Pockets of heavy rain and even a few rumbles of thunder possible.
Tuesday 9pm-midnight: Snow takes over near the TN border in western NC.
Wednesday midnight-6am: Snow comes down in earnest across the mountains, especially above 3,500 ft. Rain will taper off in the Upstate, and a few flurries or light snow could mix with rain briefly before we dry out.
Wednesday 6am-9am: Snow still falling in the mountains, slick roads in higher elevations, potentially some black ice in the northern Upstate too.
Up to 6-7 inches of snow will be possible in the high mountains by late Wednesday!
As for Severe Weather Awareness, this week we start with severe T-storms. We got a LOT of severe T-storm warnings starting in May and going through September. Below is some information from NWS GSP about the most common kinds of severe storms we get, what they are defined as, etc.! Don't forget about the state-wide tornado drill for tomorrow at 9am!
