March Weather Madness; Second Round

We have a milder weekend in store with mostly rain in the forecast today and tonight. Sunday looks to be drier, however, we could see a few showers early Sunday morning. Don’t give old man winter the shrug just yet though. Another storm system barrels through the region Monday and Tuesday followed with colder air and a return of the wintery stuff is likely Tuesday and Wednesday.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. You can submit photos now til March, 26. We wanted to keep the momentum going from this year's calendar. So, we'll start now and have calendars on store shelves sooner than ever before.

Forecast Discussion

A semi-stationary front stretches across the region today as low pressure rides along the front from the TN Valley. We'll have widely scattered rain showers through this evening as the low eventually passes overhead and off to the coast. The front lingers along the VA-NC border through today and progresses southeast tonight with the low. Rain stays in the forecast tonight with a stray shower possible very early Sunday, otherwise, the rest of Sunday should be dry.

Our next storm system develops east of the Rockies Sunday and quickly progresses through the Southern Plains and TN Valley by Monday night. This results in widely scattered rain showers Monday into Tuesday. The low moves through the region and off the coast by Tuesday afternoon. Cooler high pressure builds into the Great Lakes and a bit of a wedge of cooler air works south along the Appalachians.

This cooler air will allow a rain-snow mix to develop Tuesday, mostly north of Roanoke, however, a brief period of rain-snow mix is possible through southwestern Virginia and especially along the higher terrain. The low moves out to the Atlantic and cool high pressure continues to build into the region. This results in more widely scattered light snow developing through the region and lasting into Wednesday. Snow totals will be speculative at this point.

Total accumulation will depend on how much moisture remains available as the low exits the region, timed with the depth of cool air building overhead. Suffice it to say a lot of uncertainty remains, however, we’ll publish expected totals as details on this upcoming event become clearer. Snow diminishes late Wednesday as high pressure continues to build into the region. We’ll have fewer clouds and cooler temperatures. This trend holds into Thursday and Friday.
