As I was driving through Blowing Rock this morning, I passed by the Foggy Rock and thought it was ironic, seeing as that pretty much described the area this morning. Currently, dense fog remains in place for most of the High Country. Be careful driving this morning as visibility is pretty poor in a lot of areas. The fog will persist throughout the morning before lifting out by midday. Clouds and showers will remain though.
A low pressure system will track to our south today, eventually making a turn to the northeast and moving up the eastern seaboard. Rain showers associated with the system will remain prevalent in the area today. Precipitation will transition to snow overnight as colder air arrives, allowing temperatures to dip below freezing. Accumulations in the higher elevations could be up to an inch, with most other areas seeing a dusting to half inch at most by the morning tomorrow.
A fast moving clipper system will cross the region Friday night, bringing with it more rain and another opportunity for snow showers. This too is not expected to be a significant event.
The skies will begin to clear by Saturday afternoon. A warm front will cross the region on Sunday, ushering in milder temperatures to the region. Highs will reach the mid to upper 60’s by Monday. Unfortunately, another system appears to be heading our way for Monday night, bringing some severe weather along with it.
