...Light freezing rain and drizzle possible across portions of north Carolinas northern mountains tonight...
Chances for light rain will increase after midnight across the North Carolina mountains. Pockets of freezing temperatures are expected to remain or develop in the mountains north of I-40 overnight. These pockets of freezing temperatures will be most likely along the immediate Blue Ridge...and above about 4000 feet. This could result in light rain freezing on contact with surfaces. Any ice accumulation will be very light...and primarily confined to elevated surfaces. However...a few slick spots could develop on roads...especially across the high elevations.
Motorists traveling across the area late tonight and early Monday should use extra caution...especially when driving over bridges and overpasses.
