Clouds to Rain to Colder

Light Rain arrives this evening followed by steadier rain overnight. Tuesday may start with a lingering shower. We'll get a glimpse of the sun Tuesday; however, a strong, cold NW flow develops. Clouds retake the region in that NW flow producing light snow or freezing drizzle Tuesday night into Wednesday morning followed by flurries. Winds become gusty Tuesday afternoon and remain so through Wednesday.

Forecast Discussion

Prolonged arctic blasts are a thing of the past, but it is the heart of winter. A front moves through tonight with a secondary surge of colder air arriving Tuesday night.

Light rain arrives this evening, but the bulk of the rain comes overnight. A lingering shower is possible Tuesday morning followed partial sunshine, increasing NW winds, and falling temperatures.

An increasingly moist NW flow will produce freezing drizzle and light snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning followed by flurries that may last into Wednesday evening. Accumulation-wise it's not a big deal; however, it will produce slick travel especially on the west side of the Appalachians. Wednesday is blustery and cold.

Thursday is quite chilly with clearing skies. Friday has moderating temperatures as high pressure shifts from the Eastern U. S. into the Atlantic. Friday night, a cool wedge forms in the Southern Appalachians increasing clouds.

The weekend looks less wet than I thought yesterday. Expect light rain developing Saturday with fog possible, especially along the Blue Ridge. Steadier rain arrives Saturday night into Sunday morning. A cold front moves through Sunday. Behind the front, we'll have decreasing clouds and colder temperatures again. A snow shower or snow flurries cannot be ruled out Sunday night.
