National Weather Service issues winter weather advisory for North Carolina mountains


CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — North Carolina is getting a little more winter weather.

The National Weather Service has posted a winter weather advisory for the mountains effective until noon Tuesday.

Forecasters Tuesday morning said less than 1 inch of snow was expected in the southwest mountains. Freezing drizzle was also possible in the area.

The central and northern mountains are expected to get 2 to 3 inches of snow.

The weather service says periods of snow could create travel difficulties in the form of limited visibilities and slippery roads.

Some school systems in the region have announced the start of classes will be delayed two hours on Tuesday. Classes have been canceled in Avery, Mitchell, Watauga and Yancey counties.

Light snow was also reported in the eastern and northeastern part of the state.
