Snow Storm? Not This Time

A cold front moved across Western NC from west to east early this morning. We have a few, light morning showers. Then colder air returns. Clouds remain stubborn across the region as low pressure along the Gulf Coast moves east; however, it's path is too far south to produce meaningful weather here Friday. Snow flurries are expected Friday afternoon and evening. Skies clear Saturday leading to a clear, seasonably cold weekend.

Forecast Discussion

After all the excitement a week ago, relatively quiet weather will take some getting used to. But we will.

A front moved across Western NC early this morning. We have a few, light morning showers. Colder air arrives this afternoon and tonight.

The low we have been watching will remain too far to our south and east to produce significant precipitation here Friday. Friday will be cold and cloudy with a few afternoon and evening flurries--a dusting at most.

Seasonably cold high pressure takes control of the Southeast through Sunday. A dry front moves through from the north Sunday night. It returns north as a warm front Monday night. Then a more significant, but still moisture-starved front moves through from the northwest Tuesday night.

We will have a clear and seasonably cold weekend, slowly moderating temperatures Monday and Tuesday, and colder temperature returning Wednesday. A few flurries are possible Wednesday afternoon and evening. It's all relatively uneventful.
