Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at 1:01PM

Blackberry Winter Coming

A cold front arrives tonight from the northwest. Ahead of the front, Wednesday is cooler than the last two days with increasing clouds and a barely worth mentioning stray shower this afternoon. Tonight has a few more showers and temperatures become colder. Thursday is unsettled--cold by May standards, showery, and blustery. It's cold enough for snow showers late tonight into Thursday at higher elevations; even a stray snowflake could make it to lower elevations early Thursday. Improving weather follows leading to a pretty nice weekend.

RelayWithRay.Com It's the craziest thing I have ever seriously considered doing... Beginning May 17, I'm running the Blue Ridge Parkway. See RelayWithRay.Com for details.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted photos in the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest. It was an amazing set to choose from. And the winners are....

Forecast Discussion

A front is along the Southeast Coast moving into the Atlantic. Another front is sweeping across the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, and Tennessee River Valley today. It reaches the Appalachians tonight. In classic winter-like style, low pressure develops on the Carolina Coast Thursday with upper-level support diving southeast across the Appalachians.

The result for us will be a relatively cooler Wednesday with increasing clouds. I cannot rule out an afternoon shower, but the bulk of showers will be tonight and Thursday. Colder air arrives tonight and Thursday. Higher elevations will see snow showers late tonight into Thursday; even a stray flake or two could reach lower elevations Thursday morning. Add "blustery" to your thinking tomorrow as well--definitely a sweater day.

A slow climb out of this cold hold begins slowly Friday. Friday is cool with lots of clouds; a stray shower remains possible. Saturday is more pleasant by afternoon with more sun.

Sunday a weak front moves through. Temperatures are another step warmer; however, an isolated PM shower is possible with the front close. Monday and Tuesday look pleasant as Sunday's front moves back to our north as a warm front by Tuesday.
