Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 6:00PM

Mild Evening, Cool Down Ahead

A fast moving clipper is inbound late tonight which marks the turn to a colder stretch of days. Clouds return tonight with light rain and snow (snow showers above 3000') heading into Monday morning. Light accumulations will be limited to the higher elevations and northern mountains of northwest NC. Monday and Tuesday are quite chilly with a blustery northwest wind making it feel even colder.

Got an Amazon gift card for Christmas but didn't get an RWC Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar?. That's an easy problem to solve at our Amazon Store. Of course, you can also get them at many retailers across the area (click here for a list of retailers).

Forecast Discussion

Overall, we get a pretty decent blast of winter this week...some of you are saying "finally". The upper pattern is fast and furious with several frontal passages in the next seven days. We had a brief mild period today ahead of a fast moving clipper that rockets through the mountains tonight.

The clipper doesn't bring much moisture along with it and the core of the colder air arrives after most of the moisture passes to the east. Light rain and snow develops late tonight with snow showers for elevations over 3000'. Flurries, sprinkles, and snow showers linger into Monday morning. The afternoon is dry and blustery with steady to falling temperatures.

Another piece of energy and reinforcing shot of chilly air arrives Tuesday. This little system has even less moisture to work with but late day or nighttime flurries cannot be ruled out.

Wednesday and Thursday are a bit milder, especially Thursday ahead of yet another cold front. Once again, this front doesn't promise much outside of light rain or snow Thursday night. Even that maybe a stretch. The takeaway is for an active week in terms of clippers/fronts, however there is more bark than bite.
