Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 6:59AM

Nice Day; Rain Later Tonight

Thursday is unseasonably pleasant with high temperatures 16 to 18 degrees above average for the date. A warm front moves through early Friday morning. As a result, skies become cloudy this afternoon and rain arrives around midnight. Most of the rain exits Friday morning; however, I cannot completely rule out a stray light shower into early Friday afternoon. A potent storm system moves from the Southern Plains into the Southeast this weekend. Expect periods of rain beginning Saturday afternoon and continuing through Sunday night. Rain may be heavy at times Sunday with thunder possible. Showers even linger into Monday.

The 2017 Daniel Boone Rail Jam takes place in Boone this Saturday at the historical Daniel Boone Park. Thinking about going? Check out the hour-by-hour forecast Saturday evening.

Forecast Discussion

The main story today is pleasant temperatures. Climatologically, this week should be the coldest of the year with highs for most of the region in the low 40s and low 30s on mountaintops. But not this week... we are 16 to 18 degrees above those averages. Hoping for colder weather? Hold that thought until later next week when a significant pattern change will be complete.

Short-term, expect a nice Thursday with skies becoming cloudy this afternoon. A warm front moves through early Friday from southwest to northeast. Rain arrives around midnight and continues into Friday morning. A stray shower is possible into early Friday afternoon. Pleasant temperatures remain.

Significant weather pattern changes often come with a big storm, and this will be no exception. A big, complex, and potent storm system moves from the Southern Plains Saturday into the Southeast Sunday. We might see the sun briefly early Saturday but rain will begin by afternoon and continue off and on Saturday night. Sunday has periods of rain, heavy at times, with thunder possible.

As the center of the upper-level low moves to our northeast, cooler air will wrap around into the High Country Monday. Showers continue Monday tapering off but still possible Monday night. 5000-foot land could even see some snowflakes late Monday and Monday night (even into early Tuesday morning). Clouds decrease Tuesday. Expect windy conditions Monday and Tuesday.

We get a brief break ahead of the next front Wednesday. Colder air finally returns Thursday and Friday of next week.
