SNOW. SNOW WILL DEVELOP DURING THE DAY FRIDAY AND CONTINUE INTO MUCH OF SATURDAY...WITH PERIODS OF HEAVY SNOW POSSIBLE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING.
There are still some significant disagreements among meteorologists concerning snowfall totals, because the major factor determining the snowfall will be just when the temperature drops below freezing clear down to the ground. Of course, that will happen sooner at higher altitudes. Weather service forecastsrs peg a total snowfall of 12 to 16 inches for Wilkes county, while our Wayne Marcus is saying between 5 and 10 inches before it's over tomorrow afternoon.
