Forecast Last Updated at Monday, January 21, 2019 at 12:28PM

Brrrrr!

We’re at the low point of the winter-to-date with respect to temperatures. With full sunshine, temperatures will barely reach the 20s with teens on the mountaintops. Tuesday will continue under mostly sunny skies, but with temperatures not quite as cold (but still well below normal). Another soaking rain event returns for Wednesday, however, there is a risk of the precipitation starting as a wintry/icy mix late Tuesday night or first thing Wednesday.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is a great "from the mountains" gift anytime of year. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Arctic high pressure is sliding by to our north today. It’s responsible for the single-digit start to the day. The coldest spot that we could find was 8 degrees below zero at the Sugar Mountain summit. Now that's cold!

Skies are sunny today and it will be clear tonight with a continuation of very cold temperatures. Valleys will be coldest tonight, with lots of single digits in the deeper holes.

Tuesday won’t be quite as cold, however, temperatures will still be several degrees below normal for late-January. Clouds will be on the increase late in the day as the next storm system takes shape over the central part of the United States. A problem arises late Tuesday night and early Wednesday as moisture arrives with pre-existing cold, dry air in place. The threat exists for a period of wintry mix at onset before going over to all rain during Wednesday. We expect another rainfall event of an inch plus from this system.

Behind the front, cold air invades again early Thursday with rain ending as snow showers or flurries. A follow-up disturbance could bring more snow showers or flurries by Friday morning.

Cold weather is here to stay through the weekend. In fact, another weather-maker could bring a threat of snow by the end of next weekend, although details are extremely fuzzy at this time range.
