Forecast Discussion

This week features weak weather features moving west to east across the United States.

A weak disturbance moved overhead today in a cold NW flow. Snow showers ended this afternoon with totals in the 1"-3" range, maybe 4" report near the NC/TN border. By tonight, the disturbance will have passed to our east and move off the Mid-Atlantic coast.

A weak front moves through from the west tomorrow afternoon. Light snow showers and flurries are likely with only another dusting of accumulations (maybe 1" at the favored higher elevations near the NC/TN border).

A weak secondary front moves through early Wednesday with a reinforcing shot of colder air. A few snowflakes are possible. Clouds decrease briefly late but return Wednesday night.

A warm front moves through early Thursday followed by another weak cold front late Thursday. Thursday will have lots of clouds with spotty light rain possible. Precipitation could begin early as a light wintry mix.

Friday, slightly colder air arrives late-day or Friday evening. Spotty light rain is again possible and could mix with a few snowflakes Friday evening.

Canadian high pressure controls next weekend with more sunshine. Saturday is chilly. Sunday is milder by afternoon.
