After making landfall in the U.S. earlier this week, Hurricane Ian’s impact to the Carolinas is milder than originally anticipated. Weather forecasts show heavy rain and gusty wind through the weekend, with no major damage to the Asheville area.
A few outdoor events scheduled for this weekend in Asheville and Western North Carolina have already been canceled or rescheduled by organizers. Please continue to monitor the status of any planned activities and check our events calendar. You can also visit the N.C. Department of Transportation for the latest on traffic and road conditions.
