Becoming Cloudy & Milder

Clouds and spotty showers linger into early Monday. We’ll have partial clearing Tuesday and remain on the mild side. Our next shot at rain comes Wednesday.

Monday is the last day to order a 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar at RaysMarketplace.Com and be assured delivery by Christmas. The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography and climate information for the Southern Appalachians. It's the perfect low-cost "From the Mountains" Christmas Gift. Of course, you can also purchase these calendars at many retail outlets across the region. Click here for a list of stores.

Forecast Discussion

With a southerly flow, temperatures will creep up and stay mild through the midweek.

Tuesday looks to be the mildest day of the week under continued southerly flow. Another low pressure system develops along the Texas coast and moves into the Lower Mississippi Valley by Wednesday with our next chance for rain. That system quickly transitions offshore while another low develops in the Central Plains Thursday. This system moves into the Great Lakes Friday with a warm front stretching through the Ohio Valley into western Virginia producing increasing clouds and maybe some showers.

The cold front associated with the aforementioned system finally swings through the region on Saturday with a few showers possible early. We will begin to see a gradual downward trend in temperatures; however, the really cold stuff doesn't make it here until closer to Christmas with reinforcing shots of Arctic air.
