|A brief period of heavy sleet developed across portions of the central mountains, foothills, and western piedmont of North Carolina during the morning. Accumulating precipitation was generally limited to locations from Marshall through the northern mountains. Sleet accumulated to depths of 1/4 inch in the lower French Broad valley, while combined snow and sleet accumulations of 1 to 2 inches occurred across the northern mountains. Sleet accumulation on roads caused quite a few accidents. There were a few pockets of freezing rain that developed as the precipitation transitioned to liquid. The precipitation eventually transitioned to rain in the afternoon.
