Forecast Discussion

Valleys are chilly tonight under starry skies. High pressure holds in the Southeast through Wednesday with gradually warmer temperatures. Clouds increase Wednesday.

Low pressure moves from Eastern Oklahoma Wednesday to the Ohio Valley Thursday. An associated front passes through the Southern Appalachians Thursday night. Rain with this system will be light and spotty, possibly starting Thursday morning and lasting into Thursday evening. Mild temperatures continue.

A secondary system races through Friday night. The biggest question with this forecast is the westward extent of an associated rain shield late Thursday night and Friday. Our bets are on mostly dry here but we have to at least mention rain potential in the forecast.

Much colder air arrives with the second front Friday night. Snow showers develop on blustery winds Friday night lasting into Saturday. It's a progressive system limiting light accumulations mostly to the favored areas along the western escarpment.

Skies clear Sunday. After a cold start, the "mild up" will be felt by afternoon.
