Weather Hazards

Hazardous weather is not expected today.

**Hazardous Weather Outlook**
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
455 AM EST Mon Jan 7 2019


This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for western North Carolina.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

Very gusty northwest winds with gusts up to 55 mph, mainly across the higher elevations, will be possible behind a departing cold front Tuesday night into Wednesday. In addition, cold temperatures combined with the winds could lead to wind chill values as low as 10 below zero, mainly across the higher elevations. Light snow showers will also be possible across the higher elevations along and near the Tennessee border.

A low-pressure system will bring precipitation to the area Friday night through Sunday. Temperatures may be cold enough for the precipitation to fall as snow or a wintry mix. However, there is quite a bit of uncertainty with this system regarding timing, the location of wintry precipitation, and precipitation amounts.
