People woke up to a dangerous combination of conditions in the Mountains. The snow tapered off overnight, but it left behind snow and ice covered roads in many areas. Add in the extremely cold temperatures and you need to limit your time outside.
The Counties along the Tennessee State line saw the most accumulations. They are reporting dangerous driving conditions in many areas. State Troopers recommend you avoid being on the roads, but if you have to drive, they say make sure you and your car are ready. Have a full tank of gas, dress appropriately in case you have to walk anywhere, and expect roads that look wet to be frozen.
They also remind you not to call emergency lines for updates on road conditions. You can track those conditions on our On-Time Traffic page of our website. The Wind Chill Advisory is the big concern. It covers all of Western North Carolina. It is recommended that you don't go outside. If you must, be sure to cover exposed skin and limit the time you are outside.
