Western North Carolina's next blast of wintry weather comes Tuesday, but this time it's a clipper system from the North, which means it's going to be more cold than snow.

However, there will be snow showers developing into Tuesday for the counties that border Tennessee. Higher elevations have the best chance of getting accumulation.

In general, a dusting to as much as 1 inch will be common, with isolated cases of up to 2 inches for areas into Avery and Watauga counties.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued in response to the expected snow, mostly for icy roads. The advisory runs from 4 a.m. Tuesday through 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Asheville may experience some flurries from this system, but windy and bitter cold weather will create the biggest problems.

A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for many across WNC. that advisory starts at 10 p.m. Tuesday and ends at 7 a.m. Wednesday for wind chills ranging from 5 degrees to minus 10 degrees.
