I've spent a lot of time on the computer tonight trying to find a map outlining the Isothermal Belt in NC. But came up empty-handed.

Does anyone have a direct link to a map showing exactly which counties are involved?

Thanks in advance.

This is the only Thermal Belt in NC that I'm familiar with, but there may be others.

Polk County and parts of Rutherford, Henderson and Buncombe counties.

Thanks for the map! It's just what I was looking for!

Have a great weekend.

I think I remember reading something about the thermal belt on another post. Can you refresh my memory. Does it have to do with milder temps. in that particular area?

Thanks.

I live in the Isothermal Belt. It's been nice! Other than the freak snowstorm..since we've lived in Rutherford County, it's be "steady as she goes".

We moved from Blowing Rock to Marion which is McDowell county in December. We bought a little farm (God help us) but love it here. We are surrounded by little hills all around us as little creeks surround our land. The weather here has been incredible. It has been very mild here as we are at an edge of the Isothermal Belt. We will probably burn up in the summer though, but hope the little mountains around us keep us cool...

and on hot days go to the creek and cool down or up the mountain for a picnic, or both

That was what my Dad did when we were little and lived in Lake Lure. Although I was too young to know his intent. I just loved the adventure.
