A Few Nice Days Ahead

We have two nice days of weather ahead before the bottom begins to drop out. We will see mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures today (after clouds dissipate) and tomorrow. Thursday is an OK day but clouds roll in and rain follows Thursday night. Friday is another cloudy day with light rain early but at least it's mild.

Since we are all working for the weekend, more rain will move in Saturday afternoon and it will turn much colder Saturday night into Sunday. Rain could change to snow early Sunday and snow showers are possible Sunday night and Monday morning. Sunday will be a very cold and windy day with temperatures falling through the day. Monday looks cold and dry.

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

High pressure over the Gulf coast states will control our weather today and tomorrow with mild temperatures and increasingly sunny skies. A cold front moves into western VA Wednesday evening but hangs up over VA/NC on Thursday. A weak low pressure will ride along the front to our north and bring some light rain Thursday night and Friday morning.

A strong low pressure will develop over the southeastern states Saturday and move to the VA coast by Sunday morning. This low will bring in rain Saturday night and as it passes to our east, it will drag much colder air behind it for late Saturday night and Sunday. Rain could change to snow early on Sunday but at this time it does not look like there will be much accumulation. Snow showers are a good bet Sunday night and early Monday morning. There could be some light accumulations with those; especially higher up in the mountains.

The main thing you will notice Sunday is the much colder air, falling temperatures through the day and windy conditions. The high temperatures for Sunday will be early in the day. Winds die down some on Monday but it will be cold with temperatures remaining well below freezing.
