Forecast Last Updated at Friday, February 12, 2016 at 7:12AM

Major Cold On The Way

A quick moving disturbance may bring a few flurries or sprinkles to the Foothills late this morning or early afternoon. Accumulating snow will be held to the northern mountains today and tonight. The weekend is bitterly cold with an emphasis on Saturday. The big story is the significant turn to cold this weekend. High temperatures will be doing good to get above freezing Saturday and Sunday.

Snow and rumors of snow are running wild for early next week as a strong low develops in the Southeast. It's looking more like a snow (Sunday night into Monday) to mix to rain (by late Monday), then possibly back to a mix late Tuesday . It's far too early for details. .

Forecast Discussion

There's no slowing down of the active pattern until the second half of next week. First up, a quick clipper system diving through the TN and Ohio valley's brings the chance for a few flurries or sprinkles late this morning. It's barely worth mentioning.

Behind the clipper a serious Arctic blast gets underway tonight. High temperatures remain in the low 30s Saturday combined with a gusty northwest wind making it feel even colder.

Sunday is still cold, just not as breezy. Low pressure develops in Texas Sunday moving east towards Georgia and South Carolina by Tuesday morning, then up the East Coast. There will be changes with our forecast as there's the obvious uncertainty this far our. Here's our general outline for now: Light snow develops Sunday night continuing into Monday morning before changing to a wintry mix then all rain Monday afternoon. Rain continues Monday night into Tuesday. Late Tuesday, it may end as light snow if enough cold air can arrive while the moisture is still around. A gradual warm-up gets underway the second half of next week continuing into the weekend.
