Cool and Damp

We hope everyone enjoys their Easter weekend. It remains chilly tonight as snow showers become the predominant precipitation type overnight. Snow could coat the ground at the highest elevations such as Sugar and Beech Mountains.

Tomorrow is a better day as we get rid of the clouds and precipitation by mid morning and warm up a little by afternoon. Monday and Tuesday look to be fantastic weather days with sunny skies and warm temperatures. Clouds return Wednesday with a few showers and Thursday and Friday bring us more chances of rain and thunderstorms. Temperatures remain warm though.

Forecast Discussion

A vigorous upper level low will move over the southern Appalachians tonight bringing rain and snow showers. The snow showers will be more prevalent in most areas overnight. The upper low gets out of our hair by late tomorrow morning. Any precipitation should end by mid morning tomorrow and the skies begin to clear out a little by afternoon.

High pressure to our south takes over Monday and that will bring us fantastic weather for Monday and Tuesday. We expect clear skies and warm temperatures each day although it may be a little chilly at night. Wednesday is a transition day and we may see a few showers. A cold front moves toward us from the west Thursday but it gets hung up to our west and north. The front will be close enough to produce rain and thunderstorms Thursday and Friday. The front should move through Friday evening clearing us out.
