Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 6:25PM

Mittens and Ear-Flap Weather

Very cold and generally clear conditions will continue overnight. Increasing clouds and somewhat milder weather follows for Sunday. You’ll definitely make a dent in the firewood pile. Monday will be cloudy, cool and wet, with periods of mainly light rain. Tuesday looks like the warmest day of the forecast, while some showers return for Wednesday as our next arctic front passes through. More cold weather with possible snow showers will end the week.

We forecast partial clearing of your holiday shopping list... RaysMarketplace.Com has the Snowman-O-Mometer Mug, the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar, the Big Snowman Wanted T-shirt, and the Ray's Wintry Mix Discount Combo.

Forecast Discussion

Arctic high pressure will slowly cross the southern Appalachians this weekend. It’ll be flat out cold tonight, with some moderation in the air mass as we get into Sunday afternoon. Strong warm advection develops later Sunday night and Monday.

As this warm air lifts over the retreating cold air, we’ll see rain develop around sunrise on Monday. It appears that the cold air will be displaced quickly enough to avoid any wintry weather issues. Still, cold ground and light rain could result in an icy bridge or two early Monday. We’ll keep an eye on that.

As the week progresses, we’ll be hearing more about our perennial friend the Polar Vortex as that mass of very cold arctic air sets up shop over southeast Canada. This will push a cold front through the region during the day on Wednesday. Weather models don’t always handle these shallow cold air masses very well, and temperatures behind the front may end up being colder than what’s currently in the forecast for Thursday and Friday.

Some snow showers are possible Wednesday night and Thursday and again on Friday. The weather remains active into next weekend. This could bring us our first accumulating winter precipitation of the year so far, though it’s way too early to get (too) excited yet.
