What a way to start the final week of March! The snow started falling yesterday and continues this morning. In general, a couple inches has fallen across the region and those numbers will keep getting bigger over the next several days as northwest flow snow showers will persist. By Wednesday, the higher elevations near the NC/TN border are looking at up to a foot, while everyone else looks to be in the 2-8″ range, with the eastern portions of the region on the lower end of that scale. Unseasonably cold temperatures and late season snowfall are making for a very interesting start to spring.
Things begin to wind down Wednesday as high pressure begins to build. Snow showers should begin to taper off during the day but it is still going to remain very cold, with temperatures 20-plus degrees below normal for this time of year.
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will see calm weather return. Temperatures moderate each day but highs will still be well below normal. Our next front moves through early Monday, and we’ll begin to see increased cloud cover from it on Sunday.
