Periods of Light Rain

The start of the workweek has clouds with periods of light rain, tapering off in the afternoon. We'll have a few dry hours this evening before steadier rain begins late tonight and continues through Tuesday. Tuesday night, a cold front moves across the Appalachians delivering colder air and changing precipitation to a wintry mix or snow showers. The changeover will be gradual--first west, near the TN/NC border, but after midnight east, near the Blue Ridge. Snow shower and flurries linger into Wednesday morning. Accumulations by noon Wednesday will be a dusting to 1" for most, but 1" to 4" as you head west toward the NC/TN border.

Forecast Discussion

We have a busy weather map today; it remains busy all week.

Today, high pressure in the Atlantic delivered a cool wedge along the east side of the Appalachians. We are now in a moist overrunning southerly flow--thus the periods of light rain today. Rain tapers off this afternoon and we have a few dry hours tonight. Temperatures will be steady or rise tonight.

A cold front from the west arrives around sunset Tuesday. Rain begins again just before sunrise Tuesday and continues well into the overnight hours. Colder air from the west changes rain to a wintry mix or snow showers gradually from west to east Tuesday night. Snow showers and flurries continue into Wednesday morning. Accumulations will range from only a dusting along the eastern edge of the Appalachians to light accumulations west, near the TN/NC border.

Clouds decrease over a chilly Wednesday. Chilly , but dry weather continues Thursday as the high pressure centered in the Northeast delivers a cool wedge down the Appalachians.

Meanwhile in the Gulf of Mexico, low pressure will be building. It will move north Friday and Saturday. Moisture overrunning our chilly wedge. Rain develops again Friday with a period of freezing rain at the start. Rain ends Saturday. Temperatures in the wake of this low will not be very cold. Sunday looks dry and relatively pleasant compared to the rest of this 7-day forecast.
