Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 1:33PM

Windy Early, Cold

A gusty wind ratcheted up again in the overnight hours ahead of a cold front that moved through from the west this morning. This afternoon is sunny and less windy, yet remains cold. We've got another chilly day Friday before the weekend brings moderating temperatures.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so you can hang it on the wall now. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retail outlets across the region.

Forecast Discussion

A reinforcing shot of cold air moved through this morning denoted by a gusty northwest wind and a brief bout of clouds. The afternoon is sunny and not as windy.

After another chilly day Friday a moderating trend gets started this weekend providing a break from the unseasonable cold. High pressure moves through the Southeast Saturday and off the east coast Sunday. A warming southerly wind kicks into gear bringing some Gulf moisture to the southern Appalachians Sunday. We'll deal with a spat of spotty light rain Sunday night and Monday. Rainfall amounts are extremely light.

Seasonably mild air holds through Tuesday before colder air returns the middle of next week.
