Winter Storm Warning
A powerful blast of arctic air is bringing snow and bone chilling cold to the mountains. There are high wind and winter storm warnings out for many areas. Several school systems have already canceled classes.
Snow is falling steadily in north Madison County with the wind up to around 20 miles an hour.
"Windy and you can hardly see the roads toward Weaverville," said Banny Waltman.
Road crews are out getting ready for the snow in the northern mountains. Snow is falling sideways in northern Buncombe and Madison counties. Viewers report they are getting snow covering the ground ground as far west as Murphy.
NCDOT crews will spend the night treating the roads.
