Colder Sunday

A cold front moved through last night from the west. In its wake, Sunday featured much colder temperatures along with snow showers and flurries at high elevations. Winds remain strong this evening gradually lessening after midnight. Looking ahead, expect dry weather for Thanksgiving week with generally seasonable temperatures across the board.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure builds rapidly from the west Monday before shifting offshore Tuesday. It will promote fair weather and subsiding winds later today through Monday. On its backside, southerly return flow will bring in some additional moisture to promote more cloud cover for Tuesday. Some spotty light rain/drizzle cannot be ruled out Tuesday night, but we aren't totally sold on the idea. Just bear in mind.

The next cold front is scheduled for Tuesday night, leading to somewhat chillier air for your Thanksgiving holiday. Fortunately, the entire forecast cycle looks dry, so no weather-related travel headaches are expected across the Southern Appalachians.

Looking ahead, much colder air is possible by next Sunday. Although the upcoming week will be seasonable to seasonable cool, the end of next weekend could feel more like mid-Winter.
