Turkeys in Snow

Daytime Tuesday was quiet and noticeably cooler than Monday. Now, the Clouds will begin to thicken this evening ahead of the fun stuff later tonight.
Now the "fun" part... Low pressure will form tonight just off the Georgia Coast and moves NE along the Coast early Wednesday and Thursday. Precipitation will begin tonight around midnight, probably as rain; however, it will change to snow top-down and west-to-east quickly. By 4 AM, most of NW NC will be in the snow. Snow will continue through early afternoon Wednesday. And there's a caboose... An upper-level disturbance will move through in a cold NW flow early Thanksgiving Day, giving us a second round of snow showers and flurries later Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. Accumulations will be in the 1"-3" range right along the Blue Ridge Parkway and at elevations below 2800'. However, most of our region will pick up 3"-6" by the time it's all over Thursday afternoon. Check out our forecast map for Snowfall Totals.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moved through Monday evening erasing the unseasonably warm weather. Today had seasonal temperatures with thickening clouds for this evening.

We have been saying Wednesday was the day to watch for over a week now. It's living up to that billing. Low pressure forms today just off the Georgia Coast and moves NE along the Coast Wednesday and Thursday. Precipitation will begin tonight around midnight, probably as rain; however, it will change to snow top-down and west-to-east quickly. By 4 AM, most of NW NC will be in the snow. Snow will continue through early afternoon Wednesday. And there's a caboose... An upper-level disturbance will move through in a cold NW flow early Thanksgiving Day, giving us a second round of snow showers and flurries later Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. Accumulations will be in the 1"-3" range right along the Blue Ridge Parkway and at elevations below 2800'. However, most of our region will pick up 3"-6" by the time it's all over Thursday afternoon.

This is a tricky forecast because of marginal temperatures at onset. A faster change from rain to snow (or an all snow event) would add 2"-3" to our forecast totals. But of course, the numbers given in the previous paragraph is what we really think. Just stay tuned through the day.

Friday through Monday morning, high pressure will be in control. Temperatures will go from cold Friday to above average by Monday. The next front arrives late Monday with a chance of showers.
