Forecast Last Updated at Friday, March 23, 2018 at 5:16PM

Here We 'Snow' Again

A front develops to our south tonight with moist air overrunning a cool wedge locked into the Southern Appalachians. Light snow develops by sunrise Saturday. Expect snow Saturday morning, snow may mix with or change to rain Saturday evening. Freezing rain could mix in at times Saturday afternoon. Then a light mix of rain, snow, or freezing rain continues into Sunday. With temperatures teetering on the rain/snow line, a snow accumulation forecast is treacherous, but generally 1"-4" is expected south of Boone (more on mountaintops). 4"-8"" is the thinking for eastern Ashe and Alleghany County. Most of this accumulation comes by late Saturday afternoon. For details, see our March Ain't Over Snow Totals graphic. Stay tuned; there's much uncertainty here.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. You can submit photos til March, 26. We wanted to keep the momentum going from this year's calendar. So, we'll start now and have calendars on store shelves sooner than ever before.

Forecast Discussion

A front develops to our south tonight, and a cold wedge develops across the Southern Appalachians lasting through Sunday. Meanwhile, moisture overruns the cold wedge Saturday producing another wintry precipitation event.

Light snow develops late Friday night. Snow continues Saturday. By late afternoon precipitation mixes with freezing rain and rain. Then a light wintry mix continues through a cloudy, gray, cold Sunday.

Chilly, dry weather holds as high pressure dominates the Eastern U. S. Monday through Wednesday. Each day, Tuesday through Thursday, will be warmer than the day before.

By Thursday, a front to our west gets close enough to give us clouds and showers, especially Thursday night.
