Cooler Air Inbound

We have quite the roller coaster ride over the next few days. Today is the warmest since mid-December.
The leading edge of less cold air returns Wednesday followed by a big slug of cold air Thursday. Clouds return tomorrow with a brief window of rain Wednesday evening quickly transitioning to snow showers. Snow showers end as flurries Thursday morning- add WIND. See our discussion section for more details.

Please pardon some broken pages... We completed the move to new servers Friday night. Now, we are in a position to bring back some broken pages; however, getting everything back to "normal" is still probably takes through the end of January.

Forecast Discussion

A warm front lifted through the region today and is followed by a cold front.

Low pressure zips along the Gulf Coast tomorrow and jumps to just off the NC coast Thursday. Cooler air presses southwards tomorrow and then pours into the region late Wednesday night on a very strong northwesterly flow. Moisture is in tow, briefly as rain Wednesday evening (though we may go straight to snow) before converting to snow showers and ends Thursday morning. It's a quick thump of 1"-3", with maybe a tad more for the highest elevations. Clouds decrease Thursday afternoon.

Chilly high pressure makes a short-lived appearance Friday and into Saturday.

Another healthy low pressure center emerges Saturday, this time from the Lee Side of the Rockies. The track is more northerly, cutting through the Ohio Valley. The degree of cold air as the bulk of the moisture moves into the region is questionable. However, the battle plan today consists of an onset of snow Saturday night, transitioning to a wintry mix early Sunday, then to rain or possibly remaining as a mix for much of the day. As the low departs to our northeast colder air crashes Sunday night changing anything liquid over to snow showers. Northwest flow snow showers persist Monday and Monday night, and perhaps into Tuesday.
