Special Statement
Issued: 3:01 AM EST Feb. 13, 2016 – National Weather Service

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

A very cold Arctic airmass is building into the region today. High
temperatures this afternoon will likely remain in the teens and
20s across the mountains... with mostly 30s east of the mountains.
Colder air will settle in tonight... with low temperatures in the
single digits to lower teens in the mountains... and in the teens
to around 20 over the foothills and Piedmont. High temperatures
will struggle again on Sunday to reach the 20s mountains and 30s
Piedmont... with highs some 20 to 25 degrees below normal in most
areas.

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 temperatures are... for Asheville 37... Charlotte 41... and
gsp 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.
