Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at 6:46AM

Clear & Cold

The theme as of late has been below average temperatures. We will continue that theme today before returning to near average highs Wednesday and Thursday. The first precipitation of the period looks to develop Friday, as low pressure enters the Ohio River valley. Precipitation looks to be rain Friday, with patches of freezing rain possible at onset. Snow showers have the potential to mix in late Friday night into Saturday morning. A few flurries are in the mix Sunday into Monday morning.

What is the best way to enjoy southern Appalachian scenery all year long? The RaysWeather.Com Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar of course. Order online anytime or visit these fine retailers to pick up your copy today.

Forecast Discussion

Just over 24 hours separates us between bitter cold and near average high temperatures. In the meantime, bundle up, as temperatures will struggle to reach the freezing mark today. Another cold night is on tap tonight before the return of aforementioned average high temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday

Low pressure will then move into the Ohio River valley Friday from the Great Plains. Current thinking is a cold rain Friday, with potential for a bit of freezing rain at onset. Friday night into Saturday morning could see snow showers mix in. The occluded cyclone then exits the region Saturday leaving us with a bit of residual moisture. This moisture will allow for a chance for flurries Sunday into Monday morning, as a trough hangs around the region. Details are certainly subject to change as we approach onset. We will keep an eye on this system and bring you updates throughout the week.
