Snow showers Tuesday will be followed by bitterly cold wind chills Tuesday night across portions of the North Carolina mountains. As snow showers taper off, quickly dropping temperatures combined with gusty winds will yield bitterly cold wind chills across portions of the high terrain.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 7 a.m. Wednesday for Swain, Haywood, Madison, Yancey, Mitchell and Avery counties for light snow fall and black ice. From 1-3 inches of snow are possible in areas above 3,500 feet, with about an inch possible in lower elevations.

A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 7 a.m. Wednesday for areas above 3,500 feet. Expect wind chills in those areas to range from 5 degrees to minus 10 degrees.

The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin. Expect slippery road conditions, and tree branches could fall, as well.
