Forecast Last Updated at Friday, January 28, 2022 at 1:47PM

Rain and Snow Showers Develop

Skies have become cloudy and temperatures are below average. Light rain and snow showers will develop in the afternoon. The higher in elevation, the more likely the precipitation will be snow showers. The precipitation becomes all snow showers by sunset and continues overnight as light snow. Light snow accumulations are expected, less than an inch, but any higher peaks, like the Brushy Mountains, could get a little more than an inch. For details on snow accumulations, see our Snowfall Accumulation Forecast Map.

Winds begin to howl overnight and continue Saturday. Tonight and Saturday will be very cold with strong and gusty winds and low wind chill values. Sunday is noticeably warmer and the warming trend continues into next week. We stay dry until Wednesday afternoon when rain arrives and hangs around a few days.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front will steadily march toward western NC today and pass through around sunset. A strong upper low will move across the southern Appalachians as well. The two will combine to produce light rain and snow showers this afternoon and light snow overnight. The foothills will generally see an inch or less of accumulation but higher peaks, such as the Brushy Mountains, could get more than an inch. For details on snow accumulations, see our Snowfall Accumulation Forecast Map.

The front and upper low move east Saturday to help form a powerful winter storm offshore the mid-Atlantic. Flurries end early Saturday morning. Winds will begin to howl overnight and continue Saturday. The air behind this front is very cold so tonight and Saturday will be the coldest day of the season when factoring in the low wind chills.

Winds turn more toward the south and lighten up Sunday as high pressure shifts to the south. You'll notice a warming trend beginning Sunday. That warming trend will continue into next week along with dry weather through Tuesday. A cold front with a low pressure moving through the Ohio Valley will affect western NC Wednesday and Thursday with rain both days. The rain should hold off until Wednesday afternoon. The cold front moves through Thursday night with a good shot of cold air behind it.
