Forecast Discussion

We enjoyed a pleasant start to the weekend as Canadian high pressure moved over the Southern Appalachians. Temperatures rebounded this afternoon after a cold start to the day. Valleys will be colder than ridgetops tonight, but not as cold as Friday night.

Clouds increase this evening and skies become cloudy tonight. Sunday will be cloudy with rain developing during the afternoon, continuing Sunday night. A cold front will move across the area before sunrise Monday morning. Behind the front, much colder air will change rain to NW flow snow showers and flurries Monday morning. Monday and Monday night will be cold and blustery.

High pressure will take control through Wednesday. A new storm system enters the picture Wednesday night and Thursday. The models are all over the place with the handling of this storm. Some show a complete miss to our south, others have precipitation Wednesday night through Friday. Rain is possible Wednesday night. Cold air arrives Thursday. A rain-snow mix is possible Thursday if precipitation lingers.
