Forecast Discussion

Two upper disturbances, one moving into north Georgia and another dropping southeast from Illinois has joined forces this evening and is passing through Western NC. Showers developed this afternoon and as colder air makes inroads rain showers turn to snow showers this evening at the highest elevations first then work down to the valley floors late tonight. Flurries linger into Friday morning accompanied by a potent northwest wind.

High pressure is the main feature this weekend. We'll have ample sunshine and moderating temperatures.

Low pressure develops Sunday in the Central Plains and makes a bee-line to the Carolinas coast late Tuesday night. Rain returns Monday and continues into Monday night. Tuesday may have some lingering morning showers or light rain, but the takeaway is dry. Colder air briefly makes inroads Tuesday and Wednesday followed by a big-time warm-up heading into the end of the work week.
