Snowmageddon

Did you get enough snow? We believe the forecast worked out remarkably well for such a complex event. For tonight, a trailing upper level trough will bring another period of light snow, with an additional 1 to 3 inches possible between midnight and midday Monday. Click here for our Snow Accumulation Forecast Map. After a badly needed quiet, but chilly mid-week, rain is possible Thursday night and Friday.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is in stock featuring winners from our yearly photo contest. Get your at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

The main event is over; A sideshow upper level disturbance following the main storm could generate another 1 to 3 inches for parts of the High Country overnight and Monday morning.

Low pressure near the Outer Banks is heading out to sea tonight. An upper-level disturbance trails the surface low, and will be responsible for the additional light snows overnight and early Monday. Total accumulation will be in the 15"-20" range for most with a few spots getting to 21"-23".

Cool high pressure settles in Tuesday and Wednesday. Nighttime lows will be very cold with the snow cover and mostly clear skies.

The next storm system builds in Oklahoma Thursday. It will make a slow march eastward. Clouds increase Thursday and rain is possible by Thursday night. Friday will be rainy and cool. Saturday looks generally cloudy with leftover light rain. Precipitation could end as a light wintry mix Saturday night as colder temperatures return.

For a historical perspective... This weekend's storm will not be the Blizzard of 93', but it will be the biggest winter storm in about 20 years in northwest North Carolina. Using 1993 as the benchmark, a tough to measure and windblown 30", here are the more memorable events since 1993.

Dec. 12-14, 2010: three-day total of 14". December 2010 is also the snowiest December on record totaling 28.7" for the month.
Dec. 18-19, 2009: two-day total of 15"
Jan. 26, 1998: 19" which is the highest single day snow event on record
Jan. 5-7, 1996: three-day total of 26"
