This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a portion of the mountains of
western North Carolina.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

A strong cold front will arrive this evening. Rainfall chances will
increase as the front approaches. Then, as colder air pushes in
early Sunday morning, rain will change to a mix of snow, sleet, and
freezing rain.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

Gusty northwest winds will bring rapidly falling temperatures behind
the front Sunday morning. A flash freeze is possible, which could
result in poor road conditions in some areas. Precipitation is
expected to change to all snow by mid-morning. The snow will
diminish during the afternoon south and east of Asheville, but near
the Tennessee border, it may continue into Sunday night. A few
downed trees and powerlines are possible as gusty winds persist into
early Monday. Light snow accumulations and black ice will contribute
to poor road conditions.

Low temperatures will be in the single digits and teens Monday
morning. These temperatures, along with the brisk winds, could
support wind chills as cold as 10 degrees below zero at high
elevations. Anyone expecting to be outdoors Monday morning will need

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of North and Central Georgia.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight...

...Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are possible across
much of north and central Georgia this afternoon and evening...

A strong storm system is expected to move across the area later
today. Winds ahead of the system could gust as high as 30 mph
this afternoon. It also has the potential to bring some heavy rain
to parts of the area late this afternoon into tonight, as well as
scattered thunderstorms in north and central Georgia on this
afternoon into evening. The risk for severe storms has increased,
especially along and west of an Atlanta to Macon line. In addition
to strong damaging winds, isolated tornadoes are possible with
these storms.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday...

Light snow showers are possible in parts of far north Georgia on
Sunday morning as cold air is ushered in behind the system. Little
to no accumulation is expected. Even a few flurries could be seen
as far south as the Atlanta metro area, but should not have an
impact. Conditions will be windy Sunday with gusts up to 30 mph
out of the northwest, making it feel even colder.

Monday morning could have wind chill values in the single digits
for the northern mountains, which could warrant an advisory in
future updates over the weekend.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not requested but spotters are encouraged
to submit reports of severe weather through the web by going to
weather.gov/atlanta.
