Snow makes for a quiet Thursday in downtown Asheville

Snow makes for a quiet Thursday in downtown Asheville-attachment0

Snow amounts varied widely across Western North Carolina, according to CoCoRaHS (the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network — a “nonprofit, community-based network of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds working together to measure and map precipitation — rain, hail and snow.” In Buncombe County, some locations recorded 11 inches of snow, others just 6.

But Xpress partner Ray’s Weather promises a warmup — we could be pushing 60 degrees by Tuesday. Before we get there, though, most of WNC will still experience freezing night-time temperatures. See Ray’s forecast here (and look for the Rays link on our homepage).
