Question Snow in Asheville

I know that this is a " predict the future" question, but- I'm planning a weekend in Asheville- including the Biltmore with the boyfriend from out of state. What are the chances of seeing snow there or anywhere close to that we can go to in the mountains?

Thanks is advance

It's sleeting right now at my elevation. I've seen some balmy weekends in December here, so wouldn't bet on anything.

I wouldn't count on anything either ~ esp. in you are coming in the next month. We don't get much snow here these past few years...if we do, it's not deep, just a light brushing on the ground that melts when the sun comes out.
If it does snow in the mountains, they close the parkway so you can't go up there anyway so that probably won't work and other than that, getting up the mountains around here you have to go up very steep, curvy roads and that would be very unsafe.

Come up to the High Country. Beech Mountain or Sugar will sometimes have snow even if we don't get it in Boone or Blowing Rock. We have had snow 3 times already in November up here. Suppose to snow tonight and Monday. Maybe come up here first and spend a day and go on to Asheville driving 221 south to Marion and hit I-40. Always check Ray's Weather Center. This is where you get the real mountain forecasts. Great pictures are always posted on this site. Hope you have a good time here in the mountains.

Between the drought, and milder winters of late, chances are slim to none in Asheville. We get a dusting from time to time, but that has been it for a couple of years now.

I agree with Catbirds. Your best chance to see snow in NC is in the High Country, not Asheville. The recent thread in this forum on Boone Area Skiing has several links to Ray's Weather.

Considering that most of western NC is currently under a winter weather advisory - 70% chance of 1"-2" tonight for Asheville - I guess Mother Nature is making liars out of most of us.
