Bakersville , NC

Forecast Last Updated at Monday, March 2, 2015 at 5:28PM

Roller Coaster Week

After a nice finish to the day clouds increase again tonight and light rain redevelops after midnight. Colder air will again briefly be banked up against the east side of the Appalachians Tuesday; so, lower elevations on the east side of the Appalachian will have a period of light freezing rain in the morning changing to light rain around midday. Temperatures warm across the region significantly Tuesday night. A potent front from the west Wednesday night--we'll go from warm (Wednesday) to cold (Thursday) and rain to a mix or snow.

Forecast Discussion

Tuesday, high pressure moving across the Ohio Valley to the Mid-Atlantic banks cold air up against the east side of the Appalachians. The west side of the Appalachians and higher elevations will be warmer with a gusty SW wind. The result tomorrow will be clouds and light rain for much of our region; however, there will be a period of light freezing rain Tuesday at lower elevations near the Blue Ridge that may last until midday before changing to rain. Temperatures surge Tuesday night with light rain or drizzle still possible.

A strong front moves through Wednesday night--a big dividing line! Wednesday will be relatively warm with rain especially in the afternoon and evening. Rain could be heavy at times. Wednesday night and Thursday, temperatures will nosedive. While the timing is still uncertain, a period of freezing rain or a wintry mix is possible late Wednesday night changing to snow or snow showers Thursday morning. Snow will exit by late Thursday. The light Snowman-O-Mometer is for this event. Thursday will be much colder.

Friday and Saturday, high pressure slides east across the Eastern U. S. Both days have plenty of sun. Friday will still be pretty cold. Saturday will be much milder. Sunday, return moisture arrives from the Gulf--clouds increase and rain is possible.
