Snow at Times

The holiday weekend is cold, windy, and snowy at times. Snow showers and flurries are around tonight with flurries lingering into at least Sunday morning. Snow showers return again Sunday night and continue into Monday afternoon. However, outside of the higher westward facing slopes closest to the TN border accumulations are generally light, a solid dusting to perhaps an inch overnight. The favored western peaks above 4000' are the high achievers where a few inches have fallen and another couple of inches are within reason tonight.

Forecast Discussion

A deep upper level trough is carved out over the eastern U.S. with waves of energy pivoting through the mean northwesterly flow. The result is for a couple of prolonged periods of light snow. The first round continues tonight, then we have a break during the daytime Sunday, followed by snow showers returning Sunday night and ending Monday afternoon or evening. Accumulations are light except for the favored high peaks and westward facing slopes where several inches of snow have already fallen.

Dry high pressure builds over the Southeast Tuesday and Wednesday, but it remains chilly.

Low pressure develops in Texas Tuesday and heads northeast. Clouds increase Wednesday with a wintry mix to rain arriving late Wednesday night. Rain continues Thursday.

Another low pressure center emanating from Texas follows a similar path marching towards the region Friday. This time around precipitation may lean more towards snow Friday night if it comes to fruition.
