Discussion

Nuisance Precip; Cold Coming

A cold front is scheduled to push across the mountains later tonight. Ahead of the front, the cold air is getting dislodged, and that is usually a precipitation-making process. This time, we expect a little light rain or sprinkles, perhaps starting briefly as an icy mix. If this were politics, it would be called a 'nothing-burger'. :)

Sunday turns sunny, with colder air poised to pour into the mountains Sunday night. The core of the cold will be here for Monday through Tuesday. Temperatures will run about 10-degrees below normal for a change. Aside from a stray flurry along the NC/TN border areas late Sunday night or Monday, it’s going to be bone-dry.

Dry weather will be with us for Wednesday and Thursday as temperatures steadily moderate. New low-pressure could bring rain to the region by Friday afternoon or Friday night.
