Here comes another round of wintry weather for the central and southern Appalachian mountains! Mountain communities in southern Pennsylvania, western Maryland, eastern West Virginia, and western Virginia will receive around 2 to 6 inches of snow. The highest elevations may accumulate 6 to 9 inches by Wednesday morning.
Along the ridges and peaks of the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina and Tennessee, residents may see around 2 inches of fresh snow Tuesday. Areas of East Tennessee west of the mountains could see a light coating to an inch.
After the snow winds down late Tuesday into early Wednesday morning, cold and windy conditions will be the main concern. Blowing and drifting snow may cause some tricky travel conditions. Wind chill values will dip below zero in the central and southern Appalachian mountains.
