Heaven or Headaches

If this week is indicative of the winter season at-large skiers/boarders are going to be in heaven. School administrators... we wish you all our best. It's not that we're looking at a big snow anytime soon, but we're already seeing cold air colliding with an active southeastern storm track and it's only mid-November.

One low zips up the East Coast today as a cold front moves in this evening. Expect occasional light rain today with falling afternoon temperatures. A few wet flakes could mix-in tonight before we temporarily dry out. Rain returns Wednesday afternoon changing to a wintry mix of freezing rain/sleet around midnight and continuing into Thursday morning. Daytime temperatures get above freezing Thursday so it will change to all rain and generally taper off by early afternoon. As colder air pushes through Thursday night on a northwest flow light snow or snow showers develop and linger into early Friday morning. It's a tricky set-up so refining the details is a challenge even 48-hours out, but make a mental note that Thursday morning will be a mess until we get above freezing.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is in stock featuring winners from our yearly photo contest. Get your at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Let's start here- this upcoming weekend is relatively nice with ample sunshine and pleasant temperatures. There are no threats to appreciable outdoor fun.

However, through Friday morning it's overall quite messy. Occasional light rain, more of a nuisance really than anything else plagues the region today. A cold front moves through this afternoon and temperatures drop. Some wet flakes are possible tonight as the tail end of the moisture moves east.

Wednesday, chilly high pressure situated over the Lower Great Lakes begins to wedge down the eastern slopes of the Appalachians. Meanwhile a low moves north from the Gulf. Rain returns Wednesday afternoon changing to a wintry mix late Wednesday night and continuing into Thursday morning. Accumulating freezing rain is a concern, especially areas adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Temperatures get above freezing by midday so it all changes to rain and tapers off in the afternoon as the low pulls away.

Thursday night, colder air drains into the region on a gusty northwest flow. Light snow or snow showers develop late and continue into Friday morning. Clouds decrease Friday afternoon as temperatures get "comfortably" above freezing.
