Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 5:20PM

Little Dog; Big Dog

The 3-Day snow/snow shower/flurry event is over. Total accumulations came in for the period very close to forecast--dusting to 1" far eastern edge of the Appalachians, over one foot on mountaintops on the west side of the Appalachians, 2" to 5" for much of the region. Exact measurements are almost impossible with melting in spots and blowing snow. Mt Mitchell reported 17.5" bringing their total since January 1 to 90" of snow!

And there's continued fun in our future if you are a polar bear. Clouds increase tonight ahead of our "Little Dog" low. It zips through Friday with light snow and snow showers. Snow will end Saturday morning as flurries. Most of the area will pick up a dusting to 2"; however, a mountaintop 4" result is possible. See our Forecast Accumulations Forecast Map for details. The "Little Dog" low is followed by even colder air. Saturday will be bitterly cold with strong winds and wind chill way below 0. The Arctic chill continues Sunday setting the stage for a "Big Dog" event Monday into Tuesday--probably a snow to mix scenario. Too early and too big for details, but it will be significant.

Forecast Discussion

Weak low pressure moves across the Southeast Friday and then northeast off the Carolina Coast. It will spread a light round of light snow Friday across the region followed by snow showers Friday night. A few flurries linger into Saturday. Expect a dusting to 2" for most of our region with 3" possible on mountaintops.

Even colder air arrives Saturday--probably the coldest day of this winter. Bitter cold lasts into Sunday. And Saturday will be very windy sending wind chills well below 0 for all of us and "out of sight" cold for mountaintops.

The next low brews in Texas Sunday. It moves across the Southeast spreading warm moist Gulf air over the top of Arctic air. The result will be messy late Sunday night and Monday--plowable snow, followed by a mix, followed by freezing rain and possibly changing to rain briefly. Precipitation ends Tuesday as snow showers or snizzle. Details are impossible, but think "significant".

Milder weather will gradually follow next week. A low zips across the Ohio Valley Wednesday with clouds here. Spotty light rain or light snow is possible Wednesday.
