Slow: Chilly and snowy in the mountains

1.) Surprise, surprise...some folks in the Carolina Piedmont saw a little snow earlier today. No accumulations, but a lot better than wasting all of the cold air. We may repeat the snow shower activity tomorrow evening, but like today, not a big deal. We will be up and down in terms of the temperatures. The high country will be cold and then "warmer", and then colder. Folks along the TN/NC border are expecting 3-5 inches of snow overnight through early Tuesday.

2.) If your thinking about taking a trip up into the mountains for a little fishing, this Thursday and Friday look as good as most other days. Highs for both of those days in Boone will be in the mid 40's. Still, at 40 degrees, the water is dangerously cold, and hypothermia should be of concern. Make sure you have the basics in your fly box (pheasant tails, hare's ears, small stoneflies, etc) Don't be afraid of using your favorite streamers, as they will work right now. Of course, always have those small midges, and small BWO's at hand.
