Up to 4 inches of snow possible in NC mountains

ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

After a day of torrential rain, forecasters said up to 4 inches of snow could fall in parts of the North Carolina mountains Thursday night.

A winter weather advisory was issued by the National Weather Service for Graham, Swain, northern Jackson, Haywood, Madison, Yancey and Mitchell counties from midnight to 10 a.m. Friday.

Kent said a few locations in the northern part of the Upstate of South Carolina could see some flurries early Friday morning.
