Finally Some Winter

Early clouds will yield to sunshine, and high temperatures for the day have already occurred pre-dawn. It will be windy and colder! Some clouds return tonight with a few powdery flurries, lasting into early Monday. There won’t be any accumulation, except maybe a dusting in the western half of the High Country. The main theme is cold through Tuesday, with slow moderation thereafter.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front has exited and highs occurred before sunrise. Sunshine returns today, but expect strong northwest winds gusting as high as 50 mph this morning. Just enough low-level moisture returns overnight for some snow flurries that will last into early Monday.

The big weather headline is cold. We will be in the freezer through Tuesday, then moderation commences for midweek as the high pressure moves overhead and begins to lose its Arctic properties.

Wednesday and Thursday are quiet, then we will be watching the progress of low-pressure coming out of the Mid-South on Friday. We believe rain overspreads the region on Friday. As colder air arrives in behind this system on Saturday, the rain could change to snow showers or flurries.
