Messy Weekend (Sorry!)

We wake up to areas of fog this morning with temperatures on the cool side of mild. Expect cloudy skies and periods of rain this weekend, commencing midday or early afternoon today. Despite the grayness, temperatures will be oddly warm for January. We even anticipate some rumbles of thunder across the SW mountains and Foothills, highlighting the weirdness of this pattern. Showers taper Monday as cooler, drier air makes inroads from the northwest. After another brief midweek warm-up, much colder air finally returns late next week.

Forecast Discussion

January as whole so far has been very warm. The temperature departure from normal at the Asheville airport is running around 7 degrees above normal for the month to date. Despite that, we have still managed to squeeze out 7 inches of snowfall! It is rather unusual to have both occurrences of prolonged warmth and significant snowfall in one calendar month.

Unseasonable warmth continues this weekend, but unfortunately it comes with periods of rain through Sunday night, ending Monday. We can thank a complex low pressure area moving east out of the Southern Plains this morning to over the Southern Appalachians Sunday night. Rain will fall in the form of 3 to 4 waves, but we won’t get cute by trying to peg the exact timing of each wave. Rain will commence just after noon today. The atmosphere will destabilize and thunder will be possible tonight. Thunder will be more probable during the day Sunday.

Rain tapers into showers Monday with strong NW flow that will usher in cooler and direr air. High pressure will prevail through midweek with a nice warm up slated for Wednesday. We have a question mark Wednesday night for possible showers with a weak wave ahead of our next cold front, but will leave dry for now.

The next cold front moves through early Thursday bringing us back to the cold reality of Winter. Thursday will be 15-20 degrees colder than Wednesday, and Friday will be a big handful of degrees colder than that. Enjoy the warmth while you can, just have an umbrella and galoshes handy this weekend.
