A low pressure system is making it’s way toward the region and we’re already seeing showers this morning as a result. Precip in the form of rain will continue through the afternoon and evening before changing over to snow once the trailing cold front passes through. This changeover looks to occur sometime around midnight with the higher elevations seeing it an hour or two earlier. Before then, it’s going to be a cold and dreary day.
Snow showers continue through tomorrow night and a very gusty northwest wind will persist, making for some blustery conditions. By Thursday morning, most people will have seen 2-4 inches of snow with this system while the higher elevations near the NC/TN line will see greater amounts. The usual favored locations are looking at up to 8″ of snow when all is said and done. Thursday looks like a pow day at the ski areas!
Thursday will see drastically improving conditions as sunshine returns in the afternoon. Temps will rebound decently but a persistent northerly wind will keep things somewhat on the chilly side.
We’ll finally see an extended period of calm weather as Friday through Sunday will feature an abundance of sunshine and moderating temperatures. High pressure will be in control and the weekend looks to see above average temperatures. It will actually feel like March and spring skiing is in order!
