Satisfying Superbowl Sunday

Skies will become mostly sunny today, with temperatures peaking close to seasonal norms. Overall, it will be a pleasant Superbowl Sunday for western North Carolina. The weather will change drastically on Monday, with snow showers and squalls developing across the Southern Appalachians. Snow showers and flurries will continue into midweek (look for our snow accumulation map, coming this afternoon). It will turn dramatically colder, beginning Monday night.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, low-pressure is explosively deepening off the Carolina coast. While it will impact coastal sections, it won’t directly affect our weather, except for some high clouds and a noticeable northerly breeze. Temperatures will be very close to early February averages.

The fun begins on Monday as an Arctic cold front sweeps across the mountains during the daytime. It will bring a round of snow showers and some scattered heavier squalls. As a deep, upper level trough carves-out over the eastern part of the United States, abundant low-level moisture will pile up into the mountains producing snow showers and flurries tonight into a part of Wednesday.

Snowfall accumulations through this entire period will range from a dusting to 2” for most of the French Broad Valley. The farther north and west you go from Asheville, the more snow that you will see (higher elevations of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will see a foot or more of snow through midweek).

Another facet will be the cold temperatures. Once we go below freezing Monday night, we probably won’t get above freezing again until Friday afternoon (longer for the higher elevations).

Quieter weather returns for Thursday into Friday. Temperatures will moderate a bit by Friday, although another reinforcing shot of cold air arrives Friday night and to start next weekend.
