North Carolina governor urges residents to get prepare for storm


Winter Storm Diego will spread a widespread mess of snow, sleet and freezing rain from the southern Plains to the Ozarks and the Southeast late this week into early next week. Major snow and ice will cause travel impacts across a widespread area .Ice accumulations could cause power outages and tree damage. There is still some uncertainty in key forecast details, but the odds continue to increase for a major winter storm. Potentially heavy snow is also forecast for upstate South Carolina, western North Carolina, southern Virginia and southern West Virginia.

The storm is not expected to travel far enough north to have any major impact in the northeast of the country. Some of the heaviest snow accumulations from Winter Storm Diego will be in the southern half of the Appalachians, including western North Carolina, southwest Virginia and southern West Virginia with totals ending up around a half-foot or more in the region. There is also the possibility that Diego could bring a foot or more of snow to Asheville, North Carolina.
