Arctic Air Awaits

Cold weather fans won't be disappointed in the coming days. Today, we wait. After a mild start this morning temperatures finish out around seasonal averages. A powerful cold front disrupts Thursday with falling daytime temperatures and a gusty northwest wind ushering in the coldest air since last winter. We'll do our best to break the freezing mark Friday afternoon. The weekend is still chilly, thought not as cold, with our next chance for rain returning Sunday night.

We also forecast partial clearing of your holiday shopping list... RaysMarketplace.Com has the Snowman-O-Mometer Mug, the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar, the Big Snowman Wanted T-shirt, and the Ray's Wintry Mix Discount Combo.

Discussion

Arctic Air Awaits

We have a day to catch our breath between a cold rain yesterday and just plain ole' cold coming tomorrow. Tonight, the flow backs southeasterly for a short while ahead of an arctic blast crashing into the Southeast Thursday. We'll have increasing clouds tonight and maybe a brief spell of drizzle or some very very light rain with the upslope flow.

Thursday is cold and windy with falling afternoon temperatures. A stray flurry or two is not out of the question, especially for the mountaintops.

We stay in the deep freeze Friday as high temperatures struggle to reach the freezing mark. As high pressure builds overhead Friday night valleys go deep into the teens for wake-up time Saturday. Overall the weekend is calm and chilly, but not as cold as Friday.

The next front gets here Monday. Prior to the front's arrival high pressure centered over New England wedges down the eastern flanks of the Appalachians. Clouds build Sunday with light rain arriving by Sunday evening continuing into the nighttime hours. It will be another cold rain ending Monday morning or early afternoon.
