The High Country is under a winter weather advisory and high wind watch with snow in the forecast for Tuesday.

The National Weather Service in Blacksburg, Va. says a vigorous upper-level disturbance will move across the region. In the mountains, where temperatures will be below freezing, that will bring snow to some areas.

The Boone vicinity is expected to see accumulations of one to three inches, but some areas in the High Country could get up to four.

It will be a relatively quick storm. What will start in the Northwest North Carolina mountains is expected to end late in the afternoon, the weather service says.

Greensboro and Winston-Salem are also expected to get precipitation, but it will likely be too warm for snow.
