Winter, Where Have You Been?

Winter weather has been AWOL for most of this season, but it's back in camp now. Colder air arrives tonight while clouds continue to increase and cold air digs in for lower elevations on the east side of the Appalachians. A front moves through Saturday night. Ahead of the front precipitation chases the cold air. Expect a mostly light rain event Saturday afternoon and evening; however, precipitation will begin as freezing rain at those lower elevations in the eastern half of the mountain region. Precipitation may end as flurries late Saturday night as much colder air arrives from the west. Sunday has clearing skies, cold temperatures, and blustery winds.

What is the best way to enjoy southern Appalachian scenery all year long? The RaysWeather.Com Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar of course. Order online anytime or visit these fine retailers in Western NC to pick up your copy today.

Forecast Discussion

High moves shifts east tonight then southeast holding cold air at lower elevations on the east side of the Appalachians tonight into Saturday. Meanwhile, a front presses eastward reaching the Southern Appalachians Saturday night. Ahead of the front, warm air overruns the cold air wedged along the east side of the mountains. Clouds began to increase this afternoon and continues tonight. Mostly light precipitation develops late Saturday morning and continues through Saturday evening. It will mostly be in the form of rain; however, in colder valleys on the east side of the Appalachians, precipitation begins as freezing rain. We do not anticipate a serious icing event, but be careful for a few hours in the transition (late morning into early afternoon).

Then much colder air arrives behind the front Saturday night. Precipitation may end as flurries or "snizzle" late Saturday night. Winds become blustery with the arrival of the cold air.

The rest of this forecast is dry as Arctic high pressure takes over the Eastern U. S. Sunday will be windy and blustery winds continue Monday and Tuesday. The heart of the cold will be Monday with slowly moderating temperatures by Wednesday. We'll have lots of sunshine until late Thursday when clouds increase.
