Forecast Last Updated at Monday, December 22, 2014 at 5:55PM

All I Want for Christmas Is Some Sun

Sun will be a welcome Christmas Present--Christmas Day may be the next time we see it. Clouds, fog, cool temperatures, and drizzle characterize today's weather. Clouds, fog, rain showers, and drizzle remain with us tonight and Tuesday with slowly rising temperatures. More significant rain arrives late Tuesday continuing Tuesday night and Wednesday.
Prospects for a White Christmas continue to dwindle. Colder air arrives Wednesday night with flurries late Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. Christmas Day looks chilly with clearing skies in the afternoon.

The RWC Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar makes the perfect "from the Mountains" Christmas Gift. Get them at our Amazon Store or at many fine retailers across the area (click here for a list of retailers).

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure is sliding up the Atlantic Coast early this week. It has settled near Cape Hatteras this evening. High pressure centered in the Canadian Maritimes remains wedged down the Appalachians, resulting in continued clouds and patchy fog tonight with rain showers developing as well. Temperatures remain chilly tonight but will gradually "mild up" Tuesday.

A potent front makes a slow march across the Mississippi and Tennessee River Valleys Tuesday and Wednesday, reaching us about sunset Christmas Eve. Ahead of the front steadier rain develops late Tuesday lasting through Tuesday night and Wednesday, ending Wednesday evening.

Colder air behind the front arrives late Wednesday night. Snow flurries are possible after midnight Christmas Eve into early Christmas Day. The thread by which hopes for a White Christmas was hanging is frayed.

Skies clear Christmas Day with chilly temperatures. Temperatures quickly rise again Friday to above seasonal norms with high pressure to our south. Timing on the next front is "all over the map" but it looks moisture-starved regardless. Some precipitation next weekend is not impossible, but we've left it out for now pending better consensus from computer guidance. Temperatures remain above average Saturday, but will be cooler Sunday.
