However, Dec. 10's nighttime cold front brought an end to the warmth. It is feeling like the holiday season has finally arrived — even bringing some light snow to the higher elevations in WNC. The image below shows a light dusting of fine snow on a white pine at 4,000 ft in Madison County on Tuesday morning, Dec. 11.
Snowflakes were flying earlier this week, as Valentine’s Day started off white at the higher elevations.
