Halloween Howler

Tomorrow you will be scratching your head...first today. Light rain showers arrive late this afternoon and early evening. It won't be a washout for Trick-or-Treaters, just be prepared to have a damp costume when it's all said and done.

Onto the drama...rain showers change to snow showers after midnight (earlier above 3500'). Snow showers continue Saturday mixing with a little light rain in the core hours of the afternoon. Wind will also be an issue with gusts to 40 mph. Snow showers taper to flurries late Saturday night making way for the sun to return Sunday. We've upped the snowfall ante, 1"-4" with higher amounts in the Smokies and northern mountains. See our Total Snow Accumulation Map for details.

The RaysWeather.Com 2014-2015 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available, brought to you by Chuck Eyler Nationwide Agency. Snow-lovers will be excited.

Forecast Discussion

An intense and compact upper level low drops southeast from the Great Lakes today through the Ohio Valley and departs through SC Saturday dragging unseasonably cold air with it. This energy spawns an area of low pressure in eastern NC Saturday that darts up the east coast as a large Nor'easter Sunday. Light rain showers develop late this afternoon continuing into the early nighttime hours. The transition to snow showers occurs after midnight (a little earlier above 3500').

Snow showers continue Saturday with light rain mixing in during the afternoon as temperatures slowly climb above freezing. In addition to the snow, wind gusts to 40 mph will add to the "shock and awe" effect making it seem worse at times. Snow showers taper to flurries late Saturday night and early Sunday.

The warm ground will hold back snow totals to an extent...when it's over expect 1"-4" for Asheville proper with the higher totals for northern and western Buncombe and the shallow end just south of Hendersonville. The Smokies and highest westward facing elevations near the TN line will get get a wallop, more like 8"-10".

We'll bounce back rather quickly after some cold mornings, Sunday will be cool for November, but not nearly as bad. Temperatures continue their rebound next week to seasonal levels by Tuesday. Our next chance for rain enters the picture briefly late Wednesday.
