A Break before More Mischief

Cold and snow for the first full day of Spring--it's happened before and it will happen again. But after that mild Tuesday and with wind added, it was pretty dramatic. We think our forecast accumulations held up well (dusting to 1" far east, 1"-4" for most, 4"-7"+ at highest elevations along the NC/TN border) but who can really measure given wind and warm ground leading into the event.
Today is cold and windy but skies become mostly clear. Friday is a smidge milder, but clouds increase late. And yes, snow is possible again this weekend. Don't ask for details and don't believe anyone that says they have details (they don't), but light snow develops by sunrise Saturday and snow is a decent bet Saturday morning. We think precipitation will transition to rain in the afternoon through about noon Sunday (although some wintry mix is still possible), and then the event will end as a light wintry mix Sunday evening. Uncle!

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.

Forecast Discussion

The potent storm system that brought our cold, wind, and snow Wednesday is now reeking havoc in New England. We are left with cold and wind for Thursday; then slightly milder weather Friday as high pressure moves across the Eastern U. S.

But more mischief is on the way for this weekend. Low pressure moves across the Southeast, and high pressure centered to our north maintains a chilly wedge into the Southern Appalachians. In the dead of winter, this would have been the recipe for a big event. In early Spring, it's a messy mix. Clouds increase late Friday. Then this is our tentative take on the weekend... Snow Saturday morning changing to rain in the afternoon and Saturday (a wintry mix may linger longer east near the Blue Ridge). Light precipitation (light rain but can't rule out some mix near the Blue Ridge) continues Sunday morning. Precipitation ends as a light wintry mix or light snow Sunday night.

Monday through Wednesday, the next high moves east across the Eastern U. S. with cool (Monday) to warmer (Wednesday) temperatures. Clouds decrease late Monday leading to partly cloudy skies Tuesday and Wednesday.
