BEECH MOUNTAIN, N.C. (AP) -- The National Weather Service says an
inch of spring snow fell in one North Carolina mountain town, but
that lower elevations are too warm for frozen precipitation.
Doug Outlaw of the weather service office in Greer, S.C., said
Monday that Beech Mountain had an inch and a trace was recorded on
Outlaw said the snow came from colder-than-usual overnight
temperatures and a rainy system along the North Carolina-Tennessee
border. The forecast was for more snow showers at higher elevations
until midmorning and rain elsewhere, then more snow showers Monday night as the system moved out.
