Buckle Your Seatbelts

The next 10 days will be the coldest of winter with snow involved many days. Snow showers began during the mid-to-late morning hours ahead of an approaching cold front. Expect heavier snow squalls this afternoon and evening. Beyond this evening snow showers and flurries continue Tuesday and Wednesday--a prolonged northwest flow snow shower event. By this evening, most of the region will have an inch or so of snow (more on at higher elevations to our west). With snow showers continuing through Wednesday, eastern sections of the mountain region will add only light accumulations to the Monday evening totals for a dusting to 3" for the event. Meanwhile mountaintops along the TN/NC state line will have upwards of one foot. See our Accumulations Graphic for details. Bitter cold arrives Tuesday lasting through Thursday on gusty NW winds. Another round of snow showers is possible late Friday into Saturday with even colder air arriving Saturday.

Forecast Discussion

A front speeds through the Southern Appalachians today with snow showers and PM snow squalls. Even a rumble of thunder is possible this afternoon. Then low pressure develops along the NC Coast heading northeast up the New England Coast. Arctic high pressure follows. We will be in prolonged NW flow snow shower event later tonight through Wednesday. By sunrise Thursday morning, 3-day snow totals will be a dusting to 1" on the eastern edge of the mountains but upwards of one foot on favored mountaintops along the TN/NC border.

Temperatures become very cold tomorrow. Bitter cold lasts through Thursday with gusty NW winds, driving wind chills well below zero Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Clouds decrease Thursday into Friday. Temperatures are still cold Friday but less cold during the day, until... A clipper-type low barrels through Friday evening. Clouds increase Friday, and another round of snow showers is expected Friday afternoon through the daytime Saturday.

The coldest air of winter is expected this weekend with strong NW winds. All the bundling you can get--that's what you'll need if you are outside. Sunday has bitter cold temperatures with clearing skies.
