Forecast Last Updated at Friday, December 9, 2016 at 5:50PM

And Just Like That

The COLD is here! Yesterday was a break-in period, quite chilly and windy. Today was a wholesale 10-degrees colder with the wind becoming a little more tame by afternoon. High pressure builds overhead Saturday with a continuation of sunny skies, still cold, but we'll emerge from the deep freezer. Sunday is another step less cold with increasing clouds as our next front approaches from the west. Light rain returns Monday and so does more seasonal temperatures.

We also forecast partial clearing of your holiday shopping list... RaysMarketplace.Com has the Snowman-O-Mometer Mug, the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar, the Big Snowman Wanted T-shirt, and the Ray's Wintry Mix Discount Combo.

Forecast Discussion

Thursday's arctic front is history leaving us in a bitterly cold wake. Early cloudiness quickly gave way to abundant sunshine but it was ineffective at helping the temperature rebound as afternoon highs stayed comfortably below freezing.

The weekend is highlighted by modified arctic high pressure moving from the Northern Plains today to the East coast Sunday. Temperatures go deep tonight with clear skies and a light wind. After a frigid start tomorrow morning the afternoon is not as cold as today. Sunday is another step less cold.

Next up, another cold front approaching from the west Monday. Clouds increase late Sunday afternoon with light rain developing late Sunday night. There's not much moisture to work with so rainfall amounts will be light and concentrated on the morning hours Monday. However, temperatures manage to gain steam during this time frame and make it just above seasonal averages Monday.

Computer guidance varies significantly by the middle of next week with respect to another light rain event. We're towing the line for a break in the action after Monday until Tuesday night. Again, light stuff Wednesday which is a precursor to another significant cold outbreak Thursday. Wednesday's rain my end as flurries Thursday morning with falling daytime temperatures.
