Colder & Blustery

It feels like winter this morning with temperatures at sunrise dipping below the freezing mark. The big story today will be the cold temperatures and blustery conditions. High pressure will build in for Wednesday, allowing the wind to relax and a moderation in temperatures. Afternoon highs will be near normal for January standards by Wednesday afternoon. A cold front will cross Western NC Thursday night knocking back temperatures several degrees for Friday. Sprinkles are possible during the day Thursday.

Forecast Discussion

A clipper diving SE out of Canada last night has become absorbed by a monster area of low pressure off the Northeast Coast. Cold temperatures and gusty NW winds will persist through tonight.

On Wednesday the strong area of low pressure will pull further from the area allowing for high pressure to build in from the NW. After a cold start to Wednesday, Temperatures will warm up to near-seasonal levels Wednesday afternoon.

Another clipper system approaches Thursday, dragging yet another cold front through the area Thursday night. Sprinkles are possible ahead of the cold front Thursday afternoon. High pressure builds in for Friday with colder temperatures.

Temperatures remain chilly through the weekend as our next storm system organizes to the west. The disturbance will spread clouds and moisture over the region from west to east during the day Sunday. Rain develops during the day on Sunday, possibly changing over to snow Sunday night before the storm ends Monday morning. Details are a little fuzzy on the Sunday storm so please stay tuned. What is certain is that much colder air will arrive in the wake of the storm early next next week.
