A Chilly Weekend

Western NC has a chilly weekend on tap with strong and gusty winds today. There could be a few sprinkles or snow showers this morning but the afternoon looks dry. Sunday looks a little warmer with a good amount of sun. Clouds increase Sunday night with light rain possible late. A mix of light rain and snow is likely Monday; especially in the morning. The higher peaks to the west, especially along the TN border, will likely have occasional light snow throughout much of the day. The higher peaks to the west could get some light accumulations but no accumulations are expected for the valleys. The rest of the week is dry. Tuesday remains cold but we begin a warming trend Wednesday through the end of the week.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moves through this morning ending the sprinkles and snow showers and bringing colder air and gusty winds today. High pressure gives us a sunny and cool Sunday but clouds begin to roll in Sunday night. There could be some light rain late Sunday night ahead of a low pressure moving to our south during the day Monday. This low should provide just enough moisture for some light rain and snow for the valleys Monday, especially early in the day. Precipitation is expected to taper off for most by Monday afternoon but the west facing slopes and higher peaks will likely have snow showers through out most of the day. Cold air and gusty winds move in Monday afternoon as well.

No snow accumulations are expected for the valleys but the higher peaks, especially those to the west, will likely get some accumulating snow. Tuesday is cold but the clouds depart. A noticeable warming trend begins Wednesday afternoon and continues for the rest of the week as high pressure to our south brings southerly winds and plenty of sun.
