A One-Two Punch of Snow

Rain and snow showers from earlier today have moved out with partial clearing. Another disturbance sweeps through late tonight and this time we'll be cold enough areawide for flurries and a few snow showers (especially at higher elev's). Thanksgiving day is festive, morning flurries and a gusty northwest wind. The rest of the Holiday weekend is pleasantly quiet with a pronounced warming trend headed into next week.

Forecast Discussion

An intense area of low pressure continues moving up the east coast this evening, taking with it the mix of rain and snow we had earlier. This will push into the New England states tonight and tomorrow. With some clearing this afternoon, we are in a bit of a lull in the weather, in between systems. Another clipper-type disturbance dropped out of the Northern Plains today and will move through the Southern Appalachians early Thursday.

The clipper doesn't have much moisture to work with but it does usher in colder air. Flurries and snow showers develop overnight lasting into Thanksgiving morning. Minor accumulations are held to elevations over 3500' with novelty level stuff below that.

It stays chilly through Friday before transitioning into a warming trend this weekend. Sound familiar? Many of our recent cold shots have been followed by a quick turn around to milder weather and early next week is no exception.

Dry conditions hold until late Monday as our next front approaches from the north. Unsettled weather returns behind the front as cool high pressure wedges down the east side of the Appalachians for the middle of the week. Finally something "normal".
