... Cold wave expected over the western Carolinas and northeast
Georgia this weekend...

A very cold Arctic airmass will build into the area over the
weekend. Temperatures tonight will range a good 10 degrees below
normal... with lows ranging from the single digits north to the
mid 20s south. On Saturday... highs will run around 18 degrees
below normal... ranging from the teens north to the lower 40s
south. Even colder temperatures are expected Saturday night and
Sunday as a surface high pressure settles over the area.

The cold weather will result in high demands for electricity
across the region. Power outages may result from the heavy
electrical Load. Those who require electricity for heating or
medical equipment should consider backup heat or electrical
sources.

Take steps now to protect your property and health from the
extreme cold. If you go outside... wear several layers of loose
fitting... lightweight... warm clothing rather than one layer of
heavy clothing. Mittens are warmer than gloves. Wear a hat and
cover your mouth with a scarf. If driving... keep your Gas Tank
near full to avoid ice in The Tank and fuel lines. Check your
antifreeze and windshield washer fluid levels. Be sure to carry a
fully charged cell phone.

In your home... consider allowing indoor plumbing fixtures to drip
to allow water to trickle through pipes and inhibit freezing. Use
caution with space heaters in order to avoid fire or injury. If
emergency generators will be used... they must be situated outdoors
in well ventilated areas to prevent Carbon monoxide poisoning.

Also... remember to check in on family... friends... and elderly
neighbors who might be susceptible to the cold. Do not Forget
about your pets and livestock. Make sure they have a source of
water that will not freeze and a warm place to take shelter from
the wind and cold.

Do not attempt to walk on frozen ponds... lakes or streams... as the
ice will not be thick enough to support the weight... even of a
child.

A cold wave is defined as when the average daily temperature is
12 degrees or more below normal mid-January average daily
temperatures for 48 hours or longer. Normal mid-January average
daily temperature for Asheville is 37... Charlotte is 41... and gsp
is 42. By definition it follows that a cold wave is when the
average daily temperature for Asheville is 25... Charlotte is
29... and gsp is 30.
