Rain develops late Sunday night. Monday is very rainy. Showers linger into Tuesday. Wednesday is much colder, and yes, flurries or snow showers are possible especially on the west side of the Appalachians.

Forecast Discussion

We'll live in a bubble (high pressure) through the daytime Sunday. Friday was be the warmest of the terrific trio.

A front will move through here Tuesday. While details on timing are a bit uncertain, here's the basic outline... Rain develops after midnight Sunday night. Monday is rainy with heavy rain possible in the evening. Showers continue into Tuesday.

Sharply colder air wraps into the Southern Appalachians thanks to low pressure intensifying around or just north of the Great Lakes and high pressure heading southeast from Western Canada. Temperatures turn noticeably colder Tuesday night and Wednesday on blustery NW winds. Snow flurries or snow showers are possible Wednesday. Accumulating snow at lower elevations is unlikely. Have low exceptions, and you will not be disappointed.

Thursday has clearing skies and is nicer by afternoon.
