Winter storm impacting NC mountains

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Carolinas will catch the tail end of a winter storm moving across the Northeast Monday and Tuesday. 

Several counties have reported school closures due to potentially treacherous road conditions.  Ashe, Avery, Watauga and Yancey county schools all reported closures early Monday morning.  Alleghany county schools will operate on a two hour delay Monday. 

Elevations over 3500 feet should expect 5-8 inches of snow, possible icy roadways and wind gusts of up to 40 mph or higher that could cause blowing snow and poor visibility. 

The ridgetops could see up to 9" before the system pushes east late Tuesday.
