Snow returns Tuesday evening: first to the higher elevations, and eventually working its way down to valley locations towards midnight.

Accumulations will be most significant above 3,500 feet along and near the Tennessee border, where as much as 4", possibly 5" of snow could fall.

Valleys closer to the Tennessee line could see up to 2" of snow, with less as you work farther east and southeast.

Asheville will likely see some light accumulating snow overnight into Wednesday morning, creating some slick spots on roads.

Snow could fall as far south as Henderson and Transylvania Counties, but only minor accumulation is expected.

There is a a Winter Weather Advisory in place for elevations over 3500 feet in the counties below, from 8 p.m. Tuesday to 11 a.m. Wednesday. Two to five inches of snow is possible:

More wind and even colder temperatures accompany the snow.

Highs won't get out of the 30s for many in our mountain valleys Wednesday. Wind chills will range from the teens in the morning to the 20s in the afternoon.

Come Thursday, noticeably warmer weather takes hold with highs in the upper 50s for Asheville, along with some sunshine.

Rain chances go up into Friday.
