The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement warning that severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and early evening across most of WNC, including Buncombe County. UPDATE: The NWS has issued a Tornado Watch for Buncombe County until 8 p.m.
Both the National Weather Service and the WNC-based Ray’s Weather Center are predicting a drier, milder winter than normal this year. But that certainly hasn’t been the case so far. This is shaping up to be one of the coldest Decembers in Asheville’s recorded history. And we’ve already doubled the average snowfall for the month, with forecasters calling for more on Christmas Eve.
