Rain Tonight; Flurries Coming Monday

Skies will be clouding-up today with a period of steady rain arriving tonight. Rain will conclude Monday morning followed by the invasion of drastically colder air. Highs occur early in the day with falling temperatures through Monday afternoon. Snow showers or flurries will develop from the top down during Monday afternoon, with flurries and a few snow showers continuing Monday night through Tuesday morning. Dusting-level accumulations are expected in the lower elevations of the French Broad Valley, however several inches of snow will be favored along the Appalachian spine, particularly across the high Smokies.

Discussion

Rain Tonight; Flurries Coming Monday

Low pressure taking shape along the western Gulf Coast will head to the northeast, reaching West Virginia by Monday morning. Clouds thicken today and rain arrives tonight, lasting into Monday morning. Rain totals of around an inch will be possible.

As the rain exits Monday morning, the cold air will begin to flood in. Snow flurries and snow showers will develop during the afternoon, perhaps initially rain showers at lower elevations. It will be all snow showers Monday night into Tuesday with blustery and very cold conditions. Tuesday will be the coldest day since last winter as highs struggle to reach the mid-30s in the lower elevations.

As the moisture reservoir in the northwest flow aloft dries up, so will our snow flurries. Those should conclude by Tuesday afternoon as skies turn mostly clear. Wednesday will be bright, sunny, but chilly.

Temperatures moderate a bit for Thursday under a partly cloudy sky. Questions abound regarding the timing and track of our next weather system for late week and next weekend. We have rain tentatively scheduled for Friday afternoon into Saturday. It could possibly end as snow showers or flurries.
