Forecast Last Updated at Friday, November 21, 2014 at 12:32PM

Cool; Dry Through Saturday

Today is cool with clear skies. Winds will settle after the breezy morning. Temperatures moderate Saturday and clouds increase in the PM hours. A strong low moves from Texas/Oklahoma Sunday to Lake Superior Monday. It will pull moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico producing a rainy Sunday. Monday will be have the warmest temperatures we have felt in two weeks; but that's only a one-day deal. A little snow by Thanksgiving? Maybe. See the Forecast Discussion section for details.

Forecast Discussion

Ski season is off to a rousing start in Northwest NC, and today is almost the perfect day for it. Chilly temperatures and lighter winds once we get past the early afternoon hours. Saturday is nice as well--milder temperatures, little wind, and increasing PM clouds.

High pressure centered over the Ohio Valley is responsible for our nice/cool weather. It moves to the Mid-Atlantic Saturday and out into the Atlantic Sunday. Strong low pressure will build in TX/OK this weekend and move the Lake Superior Monday. It will pull lots of moisture out of the Gulf producing a rainy Sunday.

A cold front associated with the low in the Great Lakes moves through here Monday night. Before the front moves through unseasonably mild temperatures sweep through the Eastern U. S. Monday will be warmest day since November 11.

Monday night's front ensures that the warmth is a short-term reprieve from the cold. Tuesday, temperatures return to seasonable levels.

For the last couple days, we have mentioned the potential for light snow Wednesday. Today, we nudged that mention into the forecast boxes. Low pressure will move up the Atlantic Coast Wednesday and Thursday. It looks a bit more impressive today with implications for both Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day. Wednesday, light precipitation may move though the Southern Appalachians with just enough cold air in place to produce light snow or flurries. After a break Wednesday night, the low may intensify in the Northeast Thanksgiving day, delivering a round of NW flow snow showers or flurries here Thursday along with a surge of colder air.

The rest of the holiday weekend looks dry. Friday looks rather cold. Then moderating temperatures follow for the rest of next weekend.
