% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


OUTLOOK

An active weather pattern is expected over the next week. A passing upper level disturbance will support high elevation snow showers across the mountains today and this evening. Dry high pressure returns Wednesday, but a strong storm system will likely arrive from the west Thursday night and pass off the southeast coast Friday. Wintry weather will be possible with this system, particularly over the mountains and foothills. High pressure should return for the balance of the weekend, but yet another storm system is lurking for early next week.

HAZARDS

Hazardous weather is not expected today for most of the county. The roads in the higher elevations could be slick after some light snowfall overnight and some light snow is possible in those locations and on the Highlands Plateau until about noon today.

A strong low pressure system may cross the area Thursday through Friday. Cold temperatures across the mountains and the I-40 corridor east toward the Triad may interact with moisture from this system to produce accumulating snowfall, especially across higher mountain elevations. Uncertainty is fairly high with this system, but there is the potential for a significant impact across the mountains from this storm. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts throughout the week.

Right now, it is looking like we may get an inch or two on the Franklin area from late Thursday into early Friday. The computer models vary between no snow and 10 inches. There will be a rain, sleet, and snow mix…so Macon Media is not expecting the models that show higher accumulations to be accurate for the lower elevations. Be careful about viral snowfall maps you see on social media as those almost never come to pass and are just shared for shock value and to gain more followers and like on their pages.

Air Quality


Air quality is in the upper range of green today for all elevations.

Pollen

Pollen levels are expected to be low (1.2 out of 12) with Mixed Trace being the main culprit. Tomorrow is expected to be the same (1.2 out of 12).
