Happy Thanksgiving

Showers exited early this morning. We'll see some sunshine by afternoon with warmer temperatures. A seasonally pleasant Thanksgiving. Friday is only slightly cooler with more sunshine--still nice by late November standards. Saturday is another step cooler. Early next week has much more "interesting" weather. A potent low pressure moves from East Texas late Saturday across the Southeast Sunday and Monday. Rain develops by Sunday evening (heavy at times Sunday night), then MUCH colder air arrives Monday. Expect show showers developing west to east across the region Monday afternoon. Snow showers continue Monday night and well into Tuesday. The focus for snow accumulation will be on the western escarpment (near the TN/NC border) but only a dusting on the eastern edge of the Appalachians (along the Blue Ridge).

Forecast Discussion

Happy Thanksgiving! Please make good decisions to keep your family and our community safe and healthy.

A front moved across the Appalachians from west to east early this morning. That puts an end to showers early this morning. The airmass behind the front is actually warmer; so, a seasonably pleasant day is ahead with decreasing clouds. Friday is only slightly cooler--continued pleasant for late November.

A secondary, dry front moves through early Friday morning from west to east. Temperatures Saturday will be another step cooler with some early clouds.

More "exciting" weather comes early next week. Low pressure builds in East Texas Saturday night. It moves northeast across the Southeastern U. S. Sunday and Monday. Very cold air will wrap in behind this low Monday. Sunday will be cloudy with rain developing by evening. Rain will be heavy at times late Sunday night, and showers linger into Monday morning. High temperatures Monday will be in the morning.

Then comes the cold. Snow showers develop Monday afternoon from west to east. Snow showers continue Monday night and Tuesday (maybe into Wednesday morning). The most significant accumulations will be near the TN/NC border with lesser amounts to the east. With relatively warm water in the Great Lakes, potential for a robust NW Flow snow event exists. Snow showers and flurries end Wednesday with cold temperatures. Another wintry event is possible later next week.
