Nice Weather Ends

After a pleasant evening, rain and thunderstorms start to move in late tonight and will continue on into the most of Friday. I would expect a good amount of rain Friday with totals over an inch and then some, especially in thunderstorms. It's also of note that these storms could produce severe threats such as high winds and hail.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Saturday temperatures drop due to the passing cold front, and it remains cloudy with occasional rain showers in the valleys and snow showers for higher elevations like Whitetop. Sunday looks to be a saving grace as temperatures rebound with clearing skies expected.

Forecast Discussion

It's a nice and warm evening but by late tonight, a cold front approaching from the West will be close enough to produce clouds, rain and a few thunderstorms. The front slowly works its way through western VA Friday keeping us in rain and thunderstorms much of the day. The front is potent so a few of the thunderstorms could be on the strong side and rain could be heavy at times.

As colder air settles behind the front, in addition with an upper level low moving over the central and southern Appalachians, skies will remain cloudy with occasional rain showers in the valleys. However, the air could be cold enough for snow showers higher up; especially the Highlands. Expect it to be windy as well this Saturday.

All hope is not lost this weekend as the winds turn more to the southwest. Creating a conveyor of warm air which will cause temperatures to rise and help clear skies Sunday. Next, high pressure settles over the Deep South keeping our weather clear for Monday and first half of Tuesday. Clouds make a return as the high pressure is being pushed further South by an approaching front. At the moment, we are keeping the forecast clear, but that could change in the up and coming days.
