Rain; Colder; Changeover

Rain changes to a wintry mix or snow showers first on mountaintops near the NC/TN border this evening and gradually moves east tonight. Precipitation ends as flurries early tomorrow. Accumulations by tomorrow will be only a dusting to 1" for most of the region; however, 1"-3" is likely for the typical mountaintops closer to the NC/TN border. Clouds decrease over a rather cold tomorrow. Chilly weather continues Thursday with increasing PM clouds. We may have to contend with a period of light freezing rain late Thursday night into Friday, before a change to rain.

Forecast Discussion

Weather systems are moving quickly across the Southeast during the next several days. It will keep us on our toes for the next 10 days.

Tonight precipitation changes to a wintry mix or snow showers first on western mountaintops then the changeover progresses slowly east. There's a sneaky push of cold air at lower elevations giving concern about a period of freezing rain before a change to snow showers. Accumulations by tomorrow morning will be only a dusting to 1" for most, but 1"-3" at higher elevations near the TN/NC border. Snow flurries end early tomorrow morning.

High pressure quickly establishes itself in the northeast tomorrow and Thursday and holds a cold wedge into the Southern Appalachians. Meanwhile, low pressure develops in the Gulf Thursday, then moves northeast across our region Friday. Skies becoming cloudy Thursday night and light freezing rain is possible by sunrise Friday morning. Expect light freezing rain Friday morning changing to just rain during the day. Freezing rain will linger longest east near the Blue Ridge.

Saturday morning has waning showers, then a dry afternoon. However, a fast moving front from the NW brings snow showers or flurries Saturday night into early Sunday.

We'll have a brief break in precipitation Sunday afternoon and Sunday night before the next low moves our directly from South Texas. Monday looks cloudy with rain developing (or a wintry mix).
