Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, November 27, 2014 at 7:18AM

Snow Showers; Cold

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving!
Snow showers returned late Wednesday night continuing into Thanksgiving morning thanks to a clipper low speeding southeast through the NC Mountains this morning. This afternoon, clouds will persist on the west side of the mountains but some sun will break through farther east. Snow showers taper to flurries this afternoon. New snow accumulations will be light: only a dusting on the eastern edge of the Appalachians (including eastern Ashe and Alleghany Counties), 1"-2" for most, but isolated 3" totals on mountaintops on the west side of the Appalachians. Colder air arrives behind our little clipper leading to a very cold night. Friday will be cold and dry. Gradually moderating temperatures follow for the weekend into early next week.

The 2015 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar makes the perfect "From the Mountains" Christmas Present. Our photo contest yet again produced brilliant photography your friends and family can enjoy all year. You can purchase calendars at our Amazon Store or many fine retailers across the area.

Forecast Discussion

After a complicated beginning of the week for forecasters leading into Thanksgiving, we're thankful for pretty easy forecast today through Monday... A speedy clipper low moves through the NC Mountains today followed by a healthy push of cold air in its wake. The result will be snow showers tapering to flurries today then colder weather tonight into Friday. Accumulations will be light and favor the west side of the Appalachians. We'll only see a dusting on the eastern edge of the region, 1"-2" for most of the NW NC mountains and the Virginia Highlands, and isolated 3' totals on favored mountaintops (Beech, Sugar, Roan, Pond Mountain, etc.). Clouds gradually decrease beginning in the east this afternoon. Flurries end this evening.

Friday through most of the daytime Monday will be dry. Friday is cold, but a gradual moderating trend begins Saturday. Sunday and Monday, we'll be above seasonal averages.

The forecast gets a little more complicated Monday night through Wednesday. A front moves through late Monday with showers possible late Monday and Monday night. Behind the front, high pressure anchored in New England quickly wedges down the Southern Appalachians. Tuesday looks cloudy and cooler with a few light showers and drizzle possible. A secondary cold front moves through Wednesday will somewhat colder air. As a result, we cannot rule out showers Wednesday; then Wednesday night will be a bit (not dramatically) colder.
