Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 6:21PM

Colder; Windy

Snow showers taper to flurries before ending this evening. But the bigger story is the falling temperatures and gusty winds. A "Big Hair Warning" is in effect through Wednesday morning with gusts to 50 mph especially this evening and overnight. Tonight will be bitterly cold. Another (lesser) push of cold air arrives Friday with snow flurries. That's the last cold shot in this series; milder weather arrives this weekend.

Calendar Signing
I will be at Boone Drug--Deerfield, 11 AM to 1 PM Friday for a 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar signing. See you there!

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so you can hang it on the wall now. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retail outlets across the region.

Forecast Discussion

An arctic blast will settle in overnight. The main effects will be falling temperatures and blustery winds. Wind chills will be bitterly cold tonight. We've gotten the bulk of our snow shower during the daytime Tuesday; lingering snow showers taper to flurries before ending later this evening.

We will wake to a bitterly cold Wednesday morning, but temperatures moderate somewhat in the afternoon. Skies will be partly cloudy. Thursday looks chilly with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

Another cold shot arrives Thursday night and Friday, but not as intense as today and tonight. Skies Friday will be mostly to partly cloudy with snow flurries.

The current "cold spell" ends this weekend. Expect milder temperatures Saturday afternoon into early next week. Low pressure develops in Texas Saturday progressing eastward early next week. Periods of light rain are possible Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. Monday has a bit more rain. Skies will be generally cloudy Sunday and Monday.
