HIDE Special Weather Statement issued March 22 at 6:50AM EDT by NWS Greenville-Spartanburg
...SLIPPERY ROADWAYS TO CONTINUE THIS MORNING AND REDEVELOP
The recent snowfall across much of the North Carolina mountains
has combined with overnight temperatures in the teens and 20s to
produce very slippery road conditions. Roads are especially
hazardous this morning across the Tennessee border counties of the
North Carolina mountains, with snow covered roads a bit patchier
farther east along the Blue Ridge. Motorists are urged to slow
down and use caution while traveling until temperatures warm
above freezing late this morning.
With warming temperatures today, residual snow will melt only to
refreeze tonight with another round of subfreezing temperatures
expected. This may cause black ice concerns to become more
widespread across the western North Carolina mountains tonight
through early Friday morning.
