Forecast Last Updated at Friday, February 12, 2016 at 6:46PM

Flurries Tonight; Arctic Cold Inbound

An Arctic front moves in tonight from the Ohio Valley that will produce some snow flurries as winds howl out of the NW. Saturday is extremely cold with wind chills that will be well below zero. Winds relax Sunday, but temperatures remain very cold.
A strong low develops in the Southeast next week, bringing another round of snow to southwest Virginia. At this time, it looks like snow Sunday night and Monday, a changeover to rain Monday night, then a changeover back to snow showers Tuesday. It’s too early for details.

Forecast Discussion

An Arctic cold front is sliding down from the Ohio Valley this evening. It will lead to the coldest temperatures we’ve seen thus far this winter (if not the entire winter season). The inbound front will also produce flurries or a brief period of snow showers overnight providing nothing more than an additional dusting. The core of the cold will be tonight through Saturday. Temperatures approach the single digits overnight and will warm very little during the daytime tomorrow. Winds will be strong out of the NW and gusty. Wind chills will be below zero (-30 degrees mountain tops).

Sunday isn’t quite as bad, but still very cold. Light winds will take away much of the sting. High pressure will be overhead and moving east.

Quick on its heels comes low pressure approaching from the west. Skies become cloudy late Sunday, then snow develops Sunday night. Snow continues Monday, then we expect warmer pushing up from the south to change snow to rain Monday night. At this time, the exact track of the low is uncertain, so this is subject to change. As the low exits northeast Tuesday, colder air wrapping around the backside of the system could change the last bit of precipitation back over to snow showers before ending Tuesday.

Wednesday has lingering clouds and chilly temperatures. Thursday commences a gradual moderation in temperatures. We’ll likely be warmer than normal by next weekend.
