Forecast Last Updated at Monday, December 5, 2016 at 6:32PM

Cloudy & Wet

Low pressure has been brewing in Northern Mexico for several days. Yesterday's cold rain and wintry mix was a first wave of energy out of this system. Today, the whole system began to shift northeast forming a classic "double barrel low": one moving from Louisiana to the Ohio Valley; a second moving up the East Coast. Rain arrives tonight and continues Tuesday. The rain tapers off Tuesday afternoon, and ends as drizzle Tuesday evening. Another good, soaking rain is coming. A second break comes Wednesday. The Arctic Express arrives Thursday.

We also forecast partial clearing of your holiday shopping list... RaysMarketplace.Com has the Snowman-O-Mometer Mug, the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar, the Big Snowman Wanted T-shirt, and the Ray's Wintry Mix Discount Combo.

The RWC Mobile App, the only weather app with real temperature data and custom forecasts for the Southern Appalachians. You need it... Android and Apple.

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure moves into Louisiana tonight. A second low will develop along the Southeast Coast Tuesday. The Gulf system moves northeast overnight and Tuesday. The developing low off the Southeast will parallel the coast and really take shape of off Cape Hatteras through Tuesday.

Rain returns tonight, continues Tuesday morning, tapers off Tuesday afternoon, and ends as drizzle Tuesday night. Expect some fog tomorrow to make travel more dicey. Temperatures Tuesday will be cool but not nearly as cold as Sunday.

A break from the rain comes Wednesday as high pressure slides across the Eastern U. S. It will be dry with seasonal temperatures.

The long-promised Arctic Express arrives Thursday. Latest computer guidance is much drier for Thursday than previously thought--maybe a passing shower early Thursday (possibly even pre-dawn), then snow showers and flurries. Temperatures fall dramatically on gusty NW winds leading to a very cold Thursday night and Friday.

Temperatures gradually "mild up" Saturday (cold) and Sunday (cool). Clouds increase Sunday.
