Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, November 27, 2014 at 8:00PM

Snow Showers and Flurries Ending; Cold

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving!
Snow showers returned late Wednesday night continuing into Thanksgiving morning thanks to a clipper low speeding southeast through the NC Mountains this morning. Snow showers and flurries persist this evening and will taper off later tonight. Snow accumulations are light: only a dusting on the eastern edge of the Appalachians (including eastern Ashe and Alleghany Counties), 1"-2" for most, but isolated 3" totals on mountaintops on the west side of the Appalachians. Colder air arrives behind our little clipper leading to a very cold night. Friday will be cold and dry. Gradually moderating temperatures follow for the weekend into early next week.

Forecast Discussion

After a complicated beginning of the week for forecasters leading into Thanksgiving, we're thankful for pretty easy forecast today through Monday... A speedy clipper low moved through the NC Mountains this morning. It is followed by a healthy push of cold air. The result is snow showers tapering to flurries this evening then colder weather tonight into Friday. Accumulations are light and favor the west side of the Appalachians. We'll only see a dusting on the eastern edge of the region, 1"-2" for most of the NW NC mountains and the Virginia Highlands, and isolated 3' totals on favored mountaintops (Beech, Sugar, Roan, Pond Mountain, etc.). Clouds gradually decrease beginning in the east this afternoon. Flurries end this evening.

Friday through most of the daytime Monday will be dry. Friday is cold, but a gradual moderating trend begins Saturday. Sunday and Monday, we'll be above seasonal averages.

The forecast gets a little more complicated Monday night through Wednesday. A front moves through late Monday with showers possible late Monday and Monday night. Behind the front, high pressure anchored in New England quickly wedges down the Southern Appalachians. Tuesday looks cloudy and cooler with a few light showers and drizzle. A secondary cold front moves through Wednesday will somewhat colder air. As a result, expect morning showers Wednesday; then colder weather Wednesday night.
