Quiet Night

Quiet and chilly weather persists through the night. Most of Thursday is OK, but with more clouds. Light rain rolls in Thursday late day as a weak system moves in from the west. At the onset, there could be some snow and sleet mixing in before temps warm to change it all over to rain Thursday night. No impact is expected. Friday is dry and milder with more rain arriving Saturday into Sunday as another system moves in from the west. Behind it, comes the coldest air so far this season.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is a great "from the mountains" gift anytime of year. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Discussion

Quiet Night

Clouds begin to increase tonight and into the day on Thursday in advance of a weak system with some precip on the horizon. Light rain arrives late Thursday and into Thursday night. Temperatures are expected to be borderline whereas some sleet could mix in with the rain. Areas further north, especially north of Roanoke, should have a little more cold air to work with. So we should see some snow and sleet mix with a small accumulation of snow and sleet for the northern areas by Friday morning.

The system pulls east by Friday morning but a fair amount of clouds stick around for most of the day(more AM vs PM). Temperatures are mild for mid January.

Our next weather makes begins to take shape Friday night as low pressure moves east out of the Central Plains and strengthens as it moves NE into the Ohio River Valley by Saturday night. Moisture is drawn northward ahead of the low and showers return back to the forecast on Saturday with the majority of the rain coming Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Behind this system will be the coldest air of the season. As the cold air crashes into the region from the NW Sunday morning, temperatures begin to plummet and the rain changes to snow showers, especially across the higher elevations of SW Virginia. Winds will also become quite brisk making for a very blustery end to the weekend.

MLK Day will be dry, but very cold with Canadian High pressure building in. Add wind to the mix (especially early) wind chills will drop below zero at times. The high will then transition to our south and east by Tuesday keeping sunny skies in the forecast while temperatures moderate.
