Grab your coat and sled, there's snow in the forecast

A complicated weather pattern over the next few days is likely to bring light snow to many areas of Western North Carolina.

The southern system will have enough energy and moisture with it to produce wintry weather across parts of the Southeast and Carolinas into Friday.

Overall, the system is pretty weak, so snow amounts generally will be less than an inch in areas where it accumulates the most.

While many will see snow fall into Friday across WNC, expect less than a half-inch in most cases.

Nevertheless, this will create problems on area roads, especially those roads south of Interstate 40, where there's a greater chance of accumulation. Be prepared for some winter driving.

The system will move east late Friday, bringing quiet, but colder weather behind it for the weekend.

Some snow showers may return to the mountains Saturday into Sunday, but locations along the Tennessee border will be favored for any accumulation.

The cold and wind will create the biggest impacts on the region through the weekend.

Highs will only range from the upper 30s to lower 40s for mountain valleys, with wind chills mostly in the 20s.
