Special Statement
Issued: 4:27 PM EST Feb. 14, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Dangerous Road conditions possible this evening across portions
of western North Carolina...

Light snow is beginning to fall across portions of western North
Carolina. Surface temperatures are in the mid 20s at best and in
some cases only in the teens across these areas. It does not take
much snow... often less than an inch... to cause significant travel
problems on untreated roads with sub-freezing temperatures in
place at precipitation onset. As snow falls onto Road
surfaces... friction from tires may briefly melt the snow... but
moisture would rapidly refreeze resulting in treacherous Road
conditions on untreated roads. Residents are urged to stay off
roads tonight and avoid travel if at all possible.
