Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 5:42PM

Cloudy and Mild

You have probably noticed the milder temperatures as the cold weather pattern over the last 2 weeks has relaxed. Old Man Winter needs a rest and will be taking one this week. Temperatures will be above average each day this week. There could be some light rainfall tonight and tomorrow but it will not be much to talk about. Most of our rain this week falls on Tuesday night/Wednesday and Friday night and Saturday.

We realize folks are wondering about the weather for Christmas Eve and Day. Christmas Eve looks cloudy and rainy but mild. The rain looks to clear out by Christmas Day but it should turn colder, back to slightly below normal temperatures.

Monday is the last day to order a 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar at RaysMarketplace.Com and be assured delivery by Christmas. The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography and climate information for the Southern Appalachians. It's the perfect low-cost "From the Mountains" Christmas Gift. Of course, you can also purchase these calendars at many retail outlets across the region. Click here for a list of stores.

Forecast Discussion

There are just a few leftover showers for tonight and early tomorrow morning.

The mild temperature trend will continue this week with Monday and Tuesday seeing temperatures 10-15 degrees above average. We cool back to slightly above normal for Wednesday through the weekend.

Low pressure develops over the Gulf coast states on Tuesday night/Wednesday and as it moves east, it will bring some rain to western NC. High pressure over New England will build down the east side of the Appalachian mountains Thursday which will give us near average temperatures.

A cold front begins to affect the area Friday with rain developing ahead of it Friday night and will continue for much of the day Saturday. The front moves through Saturday night, clearing out the rain and bringing some cold temperatures behind it. As of now, the weather for Christmas Eve looks cloudy with rain but mild. Christmas day looks to be cold but no precipitation is expected. Keep in mind this is several days away so our confidence in this scenario is not great. As this weekend draws closer, we'll have a better idea of what the Christmas weekend weather will be like.
