Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 5:46PM

Clouds Return

Clouds build back in tonight as a weak disturbance moves across the Southeast. Flurries and sprinkles are possible Thursday morning. The main item to watch is low pressure moving across the Southeast Saturday. For us, it looks like a wintry mix (late Friday night into Saturday) changing to rain (Saturday afternoon), then maybe snow flurries Saturday night. Details are indecipherable at this point--don't believe anyone who claims otherwise.

Forecast Discussion

Another weak disturbances moves through early Thursday morning. It spreads clouds back across our region starting tonight. A few flurries and sprinkles are possible Thursday morning. Temperatures Thursday are nothing special, just slightly cooler than average.

A more significant low develops in South Texas Thursday night. It moves east to LA (Lower Alabama) Friday night, then to near Hatteras by Sunday morning. Details on this system remain to be determined; however, the smart money today is on a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain in our region late Friday night into Saturday before changing to just rain Saturday afternoon. The back side of this system does not look impressive :-). There's no big push of cold air in it's wake. As a result there's only flurries or drizzle Saturday night. Stay tuned.

A front will be stationary along or just off the Southeast Coast Sunday and Monday keeping clouds around, especially Monday. Temperatures will be cool but not cold. Drizzle or sprinkles is possible Monday.

Heading into Christmas, things get more exciting. A little White for Christmas is a possibility. A potent low moves from the Texas Panhandle Monday into the Southeast Tuesday. Ahead of the system, it will be slightly warming, meaning rain for us Tuesday (mostly late day and at night) into Wednesday. Much colder air whips in from the northwest Wednesday changing rain to snow showers. Santa's ride looks bumpy (windy) and cold with snow showers. Christmas Day will be cold with a snow showers or flurries possible.
