Pleasant Sunday; Unsettled Week
Hope you enjoyed a relatively pleasant Sunday, the next few days will be very different. Monday, a cool wedge forms down the Appalachians with low pressure moving east across the Southeast. We'll have clouds, fog, cooler temperatures. Expect mostly light rain during the day, heavier rain Monday night. After a brief break Tuesday morning, we'll make a dynamic transition from rain to snow Tuesday night. I would not be surprised if that transition includes a rumble of thunder. Wednesday will be snowy.
The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. You can submit photos til March, 26. We wanted to keep the momentum going from this year's calendar. So, we'll start now and have calendars on store shelves sooner than ever before.

Monday, a cool wedge forms down the Southern Appalachians as low pressure moves into Tennessee. Clouds return tonight; mostly light rain and fog develops for the daytime Monday, and heavier rain arrives Monday night.
Tuesday, low pressure will be off the Mid-Atlantic, but unsettled weather is not finished by any means. Energy left behind in the Southeast develops eventually in South Carolina. In the transition, a few showers are possible Tuesday, but heavier rain (with a rumble of thunder possible) arrives late day and Tuesday evening.
Cold air wraps rapidly in the system changing rain to snow Tuesday night. Snow continues Wednesday with windy conditions. Moderate snow is possible, reminiscent of last Wednesday.
Skies clear Thursday with cool temperatures as high pressure moves east from the middle of the country. Friday is a bit milder. Clouds increase Friday night, and a few light showers are possible later Friday night into Saturday ahead of the next front approaching from the west.
