(EXACT HIGHLANDS) — We’re mostly quiet to start the work week, but our mountain counties are still holding on to some of the effects from the weekend.

Temperatures have dropped to the low 40s-30s as the wind continues to pick up from the west. Morning fog will clear quickly in places, giving way to sunny skies in the late hours.

Mountain counties are holding on to more wind and snow this morning. Light snow will continue to fall on the western slopes until Monday morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect for Avery, Ashe and Watauga counties until 4:00 PM today, with over 4 inches of snow possible in our highest elevations. Wind will also be an issue with a wind advisory in effect for Avery, Caldwell, Burke and McDowell counties until 7:00 PM tonight.

Winds will be west-northwest 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Wind gusts in the mountains can be faster, sometimes reaching 40 mph if not more.

Clouds should give way to good sunshine this morning as the high changes to 50 degrees. It will gradually warm up in the middle of the week, rain is expected on Wednesday.

A low pressure system moving out of the Gulf of Mexico will bring heavy rain to the Queen City just in time for the Wednesday morning commute. Showers should taper off during the afternoon and evening.

Conditions will be dry and seasonable through the weekend, with temperatures in the 50s and 40s on Thursday and Friday.

The sun is lingering as we head into the weekend.
