Goodbye Mild, Hello Wild

A cold front cleared the mountains this morning bringing and end to the impressive mild shot that started the short work week. For early this evening, we'll begin to see clouds building in as a coastal low combined with a surge of colder air brings a rain/snow mix late tonight and Wednesday. That system is followed by a quick moving clipper that yields flurries and more light snow Wednesday night and early Thanksgiving Day. The end result for the southwestern mountains is a little messy. Elevations over 3500' will see a few inches of snow, but for most of us it is a novelty dusting to maybe a slushy inch. See our Snowfall Totals map to find out if you need to dust off the sled. The rest of the holiday weekend is nice and quiet.

The 2015 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar makes the perfect "From the Mountains" Christmas Present. Our photo contest yet again produced brilliant photography your friends and family can enjoy all year. You can purchase calendars at our Amazon Store or many fine retailers across the area.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front came through this morning that kept the high temperatures down a few degrees compared to Monday. The front has now stalled along the coast with a wave of low pressure developing tonight of the Georgia coast. The low spends the next two days riding up the east coast to New England while colder air pushes in from the northwest. Rain arrives late tonight mixing with and changing to snow depending on elevation. A secondary disturbance sweeps through Thanksgiving morning bringing flurries for most of us and some snow showers to higher elevations.

The game plan:
Rain showers arrive late tonight changing to snow from the top down early Wednesday morning. Elevations above 3500' will see mostly snow once it changes over. These areas will see 1"-3" when it's all said and done Thursday afternoon (including northern portions of Buncombe County). Above 4000' it will be more like 3-6".
Elevations below 3500' including Asheville and Hendersonville proper can expect a rain/snow mix maybe going over to all snow briefly Wednesday morning and then back to rain. While this will add a festive feel to Thanksgiving Eve we're not expecting much more than a dusting to maybe a "slushy inch".

There will be a break in the action Wednesday afternoon before flurries and higher elevation snow showers develop Wednesday night ending midday Thursday.

Beyond Thursday the rest of the Thanksgiving weekend is uneventful as high pressure takes control (good news for travelers). A gradual warming trend gets underway beginning Saturday and we'll see a repeat of the recent mild weather by early next week.
