The cold front sweeping through Asheville will take a brief break Thanksgiving Day.
Temperatures will get up to 62 degrees Nov. 25 before dropping down to a high of 43 Nov. 26, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Rodney Hinson.
There’s also a slight chance of snow late Thursday night, early Friday morning in Western North Carolina’s elevations higher than 3,500 feet.
“(The cold front) probably will change to snow before it ends, but we're not looking at any significant accumulations or anything,” he said.
This will be the second dusting of snow to fall on high elevations. On Nov. 2, Mount Mitchell, the state's highest point east of the Mississippi with an elevation 6,684 feet, and Grandfather Mountain in Avery County, saw the first snow of the season with about a 1/2 inch.
At lower elevations, such as Asheville, snow is unlikely, but rain is predicted during the evening of Nov. 25 and the morning of Nov. 26.
The rest of the weekend is expected to be sunny and mild with daytime temperatures Nov. 26-28 in the low 40s and 50s.
“We will warm up over the weekend, and then it's going to cool down again behind that,” Hinson said.
