Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 6:57AM

A Chilly Saturday

Today’s weather will be a brief winter preview with gusty winds, a few northwest flow sprinkles and even snow flurries early on and temperatures that struggle to get out of the 40s. Conditions improve considerably for Sunday with a 15 degree temperature rebound, less wind and clear blue skies. There will be areas of frost early in the day, however. Temperatures spike on Monday ahead of a dry cold front, then cool off a bit behind the front. By Thursday a rapidly moving storm system of Pacific origin may bring some rainfall to the region.

The RaysWeather.Com 2016-17 Winter Fearless Forecast was released Saturday morning--average to slightly above normal temperatures; less than average snow.

Forecast Discussion

Northwest flow will keep it chilly and windy over the region today. Consider this a dry run for your winter wardrobe. Clouds will be persistent right along the Tennessee line this morning, and there will be some morning sprinkles and even a few snow flurries. Generally sunny conditions are expected along the east slopes of the Blue Ridge.

Sunday’s weather will be much better with sunny skies for everyone and a 15 degree temperature rebound. That said, with lighter winds, sheltered valleys stand a good chance of experiencing a few hours of frost early in the day.

A dry cold front comes through on Monday. Downslope winds will lead to a temperature spike during the day, with cooler albeit sunny conditions to follow for Tuesday and Wednesday.

By Thursday a fast moving storm system of Pacific origin will approach from the west. It’s looking a little wetter than it did yesterday, and a chance of rain has been added to the forecast for parts of Thursday and Friday. There is still plenty of uncertainty on the strength and timing of the system, but I think we’d all agree that rain would be a good thing at this point.
