Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 12:28PM
Relatively Pleasant Today; Cold Coming
A cold front arrives early Wednesday. That's the main story, but we'll have a relatively pleasant Tuesday after a chilly start to the day. A stray shower is possible late this afternoon and evening, mostly north of Avery County. Wednesday's daytime high will be at sunrise. Temperatures fall through the day leading to a hard freeze Wednesday night. Cold temperatures remain through Friday morning. Expect a few showers early tomorrow ending by early afternoon as flurries (snow showers at higher elevations near the TN/NC border). Gusty winds will add to the weather's rudeness.

Monday - Warmer afternoon after a chilly start; A few PM clouds; High in the lower 50s; Low in the mid 30s
A milder SW flow develops this afternoon ahead of the coming cold front. Expect more pleasant temperatures after a chilly start in spite of breezy conditions this afternoon. We'll also have more clouds late today and this evening with a stray shower possible mostly in Watauga, Ashe, and Alleghany Counties.
The front blows through before sunrise Wednesday. Precipitation will be post-frontal. Daytime highs Wednesday will be at sunrise with falling temperatures to follow. Showers arrive in the morning ending as flurries by early afternoon. We'll call that "snow showers" at higher elevations near the TN/NC border with dusting-level accumulations are a decent bet. It will be windy, and a hard freeze comes Wednesday night as Arctic high pressure overtakes the Eastern U. S.
Thursday is blustery and cold. Winds settle Thursday night with another freeze expected.
The high will be centered off the Southeast Coast Friday allowing a milder SW flow again Friday afternoon. Friday afternoon will still have below average temperatures but it will be much nicer than the previous 2 days.
A potent low builds North Texas Friday. It moves across the Appalachians Saturday. Skies become cloudy Friday night, and Saturday will be rainy and cool with fog. Some heavy rain is possible in the afternoon and early evening.
Stray light showers linger into Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon has cool temperatures, windy conditions, and clearing skies.
Warmer, more pleasant weather comes Monday afternoon. Next Tuesday and Wednesday will be even warmer, but another chilly push is coming by the end of next week signaled by the recurvature of Super-Typhoon Surigae in the Western Pacific.
