Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 7:44AM

Snow Showers and Flurries Ending

Snow showers and flurries arrived on schedule Friday night. Most of the region has only a dusting but higher elevations picked up 1"-2" of late-March powder. Be prepared for 50 photos of Daffodils in snow on social media--we have never had snow in late March, have we? :-) Skies clear today after morning snow showers and flurries; however, temperatures will be very cold, 20-25 degrees colder than average. After a very cold Saturday night and Sunday morning, temperatures moderate somewhat Sunday afternoon. The next front comes quickly bringing clouds Sunday evening and rain showers late Sunday night into early Monday morning.

Forecast Discussion

The current cold snap has behaved about as advertised. Today will be 20-25 degrees colder than average for the date. Snow showers and flurries arrived on cue Friday night. We woke up to a dusting across most of the region; however, some higher elevations picked up 1"-2". Skies clear quickly this morning. Tonight will be very cold.

The next front is moving quickly across the country and will reach the Southern Appalachians early Monday morning. Clouds increase Sunday evening and rain showers will be in our region late Sunday night into early Monday morning. I cannot rule out a little snow on mountaintops as precipitation begins late Sunday night. Clouds decrease Monday and temperatures will be cool (but not cold).

Tuesday and Wednesday look dry with moderating temperatures in spite of a weak front moving through from the north Wednesday morning.

After Wednesday, timing issues add some uncertainty to the forecast. The next front moves through Friday with one or two disturbances moving along the front from southwest to northeast. For now, we have showers in the forecast both days with emphases on Thursday evening and late Friday. Another cold snap is coming for Easter Weekend, but not as intense as today.
