Snow flurries temporarily whitened parts of western North Carolina, but accumulations are less than the expected 3 inches.
A forecaster at the National Weather Service says today an inch was recorded at Mount Mitchell and a half inch fell at Beech Mountain. Meteorologist Blair Holloway says there were flurries over much of the mountains.
The snow came as a windy cold front pushed across North Carolina. Rain fell in central areas with about three-tenths of an inch recorded at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
Authorities closed U.S. Highway 441 through the Smoky Mountains
yesterday because of snow and ice.
