Warmer to Rain, Colder to Snow

Temperatures hold in the mid 40s this evening and light rain continues at times. The "real" steadier and heavier rain arrives tonight.

Colder air invades tomorrow morning on a brisk northwest wind. Rain transitions to snow showers as temperatures fall from morning highs and flurries hang around through the afternoon. A passing weak upper disturbance late Thursday night keeps the flurry theme going into Friday morning. Outside of light accumulations for the highest elevations we're talking novelty level stuff elsewhere.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is a great "from the mountains" gift anytime of year. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure moves from the Great Lakes this evening towards Quebec Thursday. An attending cold front is back in the TN Valley today and sweeps through tomorrow morning. Ahead of the front, expect light rain at times this evening with steadier, heavier rain overnight.

Daytime highs Thursday occur in the morning as colder air quickly fills in behind the front. Residual moisture changes from rain to snow showers in the morning. The moisture dries up pretty quickly but flurries continue into part of the afternoon. A trailing upper level disturbance and reinforcing cold front moves through Thursday night so flurries return/continue into Friday morning. Any minor accumulations are limited to the higher, westward facing slopes.

High pressure returns briefly Friday afternoon and Saturday. Friday is quite cold, though temperatures moderate to the "not as cold" but still chilly category Saturday :-). Another passing upper level disturbance swings overhead late Sunday sparking late-day sprinkles to flurries Sunday night. We've been back and forth on this idea the last couple of days and it's so moisture starved that it may not materialize.

Last in the progression is another cold frontal passage Tuesday. Light rain or a rain/snow mix develops Tuesday morning and goes to all light snow with falling daytime temperatures. At this juncture precipitation looks light and fleeting.
