Clouds Building In; Showers Later

Today will be cloudy and on the mild side as rain moves over the High Country this afternoon ahead of an approaching cold front. Rain will continue through Sunday night into Monday morning where the front passes over around sunrise. Once the colder air moves in Monday morning, we’ll see rain change over to snow showers. Snow showers will hang around into the early evening, with some flurries sticking around overnight.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure remains in control of much of the East Coast this morning, but that’s going to change by tonight. This high quickly moves out over the Atlantic today as a low system approaches from the east. This morning, the low sits over the Central Plains, by this time Monday, the low will to sit our north over western PA with the associated cold front moving over us.

Rain showers move into western NC this afternoon ahead of the cold front, and stick around through the overnight hours. Early Monday morning, once the cold front passes over the High Country, we’ll see rain change over to snow showers with a noticeable drop in temperatures. Snow showers will last from around sunrise Monday into the early evening. Flurries and snow showers will continue Monday night into early Tuesday under NW’ly flow. Overall, we do not expect much accumulation beyond 1” in the valleys through Monday with 1-2” along the higher elevations and westward facing slopes.

Tuesday, high pressure builds over the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic with cool temperatures and clear skies. High pressure sticks around through Wednesday as a disturbance passes through the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes to our north. We may see a few stray clouds early Wednesday from that disturbance but any precipitation is unlikely. Overnight Wednesday, we will see clouds build in from our next system along the Gulf.

High pressure retreats over the Atlantic early Thursday as the next developing low pressure system sets up along the Gulf coast. For the moment, model guidance suggests we will begin to see snow showers Thursday morning, which really depends on the speed of this system. Snow showers will likely continue through Thursday into early Friday. It is a bit too early to nail down potential snowfall totals just yet.

Friday, high pressure builds into the MS Valley and into TN behind the low with much colder air. We’ll clear out by Friday afternoon once the low system takes a hike out to sea. Saturday, high pressure pushes east over the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, allowing clear skies to settle in for the weekend.
