And the Beat Goes on...

It was Day 3 of snow showers and flurries. Snow accumulations are in the forecast totals range we have been advertising since Sunday. If anything they are nearing the top end of our Accumulations Graphic in the western half of the Appalachians. We've already had a few mountaintop reports of over one foot. Snow showers and flurries continue off and on through tonight, most of the region will pick up no more than a dusting (trace amounts at most on the eastern edge of the mountains). However, higher elevations along the western escarpment could see another inch or so. Thursday has decreasing clouds after early flurries end.

Temperatures are very cold and with gusty winds. Tonight, wind chills will be in the minus teens for most, -20s to -30 on mountaintops. Friday has a return of snow showers and flurries lasting into Saturday morning. An even colder blast of Arctic air arrives Saturday. High temperatures Saturday will be at sunrise then fall to brutally cold levels Saturday night.

Forecast Discussion

Today we reached the peak of cold with the current arctic blast. But an even colder blast arrives Saturday. With gusty winds, negative windchills are common (-20s on mountaintops). Tonight with even stronger winds, windchills will be even a bit colder. Saturday, temperatures will fall from sunrise highs. Saturday night and Sunday morning will be the coldest of the season. If you will be outside, prepare accordingly.

And snow showers/flurries continue tonight... With the wind, totals are nearly impossible to measure. Expect a dusting or less for most of the Appalachian region (just flurries on the eastern edge); however, the western escarpment (near the TN/NC border) will pick up another inch or so before it ends. And it will end... Early Thursday morning as flurries.

We get a 24-hour break Thursday with cold temperatures. Winds will settle Thursday afternoon and night. Skies become cloudy again early Friday with another round of snow showers and flurries lasting into Saturday.

Sunday starts bitterly cold but temperatures moderate slightly in the afternoon. Clouds return Sunday night. Low pressure develops in Texas Sunday moving across the Southeast Monday. It's too early to clearly characterize the Monday event... could be a snow to mix (even briefly to rain) to snow showers event, but nobody knows yet. Stay tuned. Tuesday has lots of clouds with less cold temperatures; however, light precipitation cannot be ruled out even Tuesday.
