Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 7:43AM

Gray; Spotty Light Rain

Cold air is being scoured quickly this morning. Sunday has clouds with spotty light rain. A few pockets of freezing rain are possible early this morning in valleys right along the Blue Ridge. A front moves through tonight from the west keeping the chance of spotty light rain going through Monday morning. We might get a fleeting look at the sun Monday afternoon before clouds return Monday night. Valleys right along the Blue Ridge have another brief "window of opportunity" for freezing rain Tuesday morning.

Forecast Discussion

Light, spotty precipitation developed across Western North Carolina and SW VA Saturday night. We had a brief period of time where temperatures were just below freezing in valleys in the eastern half of the Appalachians resulting in a brief period of light freezing rain in a few spots. But cold air losing it toehold quickly, leaving the region with just spotty light rain. This afternoon, temperatures will be much milder than we have experienced in the last few days.

A front moves through tonight keeping the chance of spotty light rain going through Monday morning. Temperatures behind this front are only slightly cooler; so, we won't see much difference Monday. Breaks in the clouds develop Monday afternoon.

High pressure moving into the Mid-Atlantic Tuesday briefly wedges down the east side of the Appalachians Monday night and Tuesday. Again, we'll have overrunning moisture producing light rain that may begin as light freezing rain in valleys on the east side of the Appalachians. Temperatures will rise across the region Tuesday night.

A much more potent front arrives Wednesday. It brings rain Wednesday. Temperatures fall sharply behind the front Wednesday afternoon and night. Rain will change to snow or snow showers Wednesday night with snow showers or flurries lingering into Thursday morning. Computer guidance differs regarding low pressure moving along the front to our southeast Wednesday night with significant disagreement on how much snow we'll have. Stay tuned.

Thursday will be very cold. Skies clear by Thursday night. As the next cold high slides across the Ohio Valley into the Mid-Atlantic, Friday is cold by March standards, but Saturday looks milder. Both days appear to have plenty of sun.
