Clouds increase tonight and I cannot completely rule out a stray light shower or sprinkles overnight. Thursday has a mix of clouds and sun with skies becoming cloudy Thursday night. Cold air returns for one day, Friday, with a mix of rain and snow changing to rain Friday night. Milder air returns quickly Saturday but several gray days lie ahead with a stalled front nearby.

Forecast Discussion

A mostly dry front moves through from the northwest tonight. We'll have more clouds late and the chance of a stray, passing, light shower or sprinkles.

Thursday has a mix of clouds and sun and will be less warm. Clouds increase again Thursday night and a cold wedge presses down the east side of the Appalachians.

Low pressure moves across the Southeast Friday. We will have several hours with temperatures near freezing Friday. Expect a mix of rain and snow Friday with slushy accumulations possible, focused on higher elevations. Precipitation changes to just rain Friday night as a warm front passes through from southwest to northeast.

This weekend and well into next week, a front will stall nearby. Saturday is impressively milder with clouds and periods of light rain still possible.

The next disturbance moves from the southwest along the front increasing rain coverage Sunday into Monday.

The front will press slowly south and west making Tuesday cooler with periods of rain still possible.
