Satisfying Superbowl Sunday

Skies will become mostly sunny today, with temperatures peaking close to seasonal norms. Overall, it will be a pleasant Superbowl Sunday for western North Carolina. The weather will change drastically on Monday, with snow showers and squalls developing across the Southern Appalachians. Snow showers and flurries will continue Tuesday, finally tapering off by Thursday morning (look for our snow accumulation map, coming this afternoon). It will turn dramatically colder, beginning Monday night.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, low-pressure is explosively deepening off the Carolina coast. While it will impact coastal sections, it won’t directly affect our weather, except for some high clouds and a noticeable northerly breeze. Temperatures will be very close to early February averages.

The fun begins on Monday as an Arctic cold front sweeps across the mountains during the daytime. It will bring a round of snow showers and some scattered heavy squalls. As a deep, upper level trough carves-out over the eastern part of the United States, abundant low-level moisture will pile up into the mountains producing snow showers and flurries tonight into early Thursday.

Snowfall accumulations through this entire period will range from just an inch or two across eastern sections near the Blue Ridge, to 3-6” elsewhere. Higher elevations locations situated along the NC/TN border will receive 6-9+”.

Another facet will be the cold temperatures. Subzero wind chills will be commonplace Tuesday through Wednesday.

Quieter weather returns briefly for Thursday afternoon into Friday morning. Temperatures will moderate a little bit by Friday, although another reinforcing shot of cold air arrives Friday night. Snow showers/flurries may accompany this front as it paves the way for a very cold Saturday.
