...LIGHT FREEZING RAIN AND DRIZZLE POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF
NORTH CAROLINAS NORTHERN MOUNTAINS TONIGHT...

CHANCES FOR LIGHT RAIN WILL INCREASE AFTER MIDNIGHT ACROSS THE
NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS. POCKETS OF FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN OR DEVELOP IN THE MOUNTAINS NORTH OF I-40
OVERNIGHT. THESE POCKETS OF FREEZING TEMPERATURES WILL BE MOST
LIKELY ALONG THE IMMEDIATE BLUE RIDGE...AND ABOVE ABOUT 4000 FEET.
THIS COULD RESULT IN LIGHT RAIN FREEZING ON CONTACT WITH
SURFACES. ANY ICE ACCUMULATION WILL BE VERY LIGHT...AND PRIMARILY
CONFINED TO ELEVATED SURFACES. HOWEVER...A FEW SLICK SPOTS COULD
DEVELOP ON ROADS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE HIGH ELEVATIONS.

MOTORISTS TRAVELING ACROSS THE AREA LATE TONIGHT AND EARLY MONDAY
SHOULD USE EXTRA CAUTION...ESPECIALLY WHEN DRIVING OVER BRIDGES
AND OVERPASSES.
