Winter Storm Moves Into Western North Carolina

The snow began to fall in the mountains of western North Carolina on Saturday, December 8, prompting alerts for hazardous road conditions, but the areas a little further east are expected to take the brunt of this winter storm.

Rosman, on the edge of the Nantahala National Forest, expects 3 to 4 inches of snow, enough to make the narrow and winding roads in the mountains treacherous. The National Weather Service, however, said that parts of the state just a little further east – and still in the mountains – may see as much as 10 to 16 inches as the bulk of the storm moves into the area Saturday night and Sunday.
