Brief Lull in the Rain Today and Not As Cold
There’s no escaping the wet weather completely until we get to Tuesday afternoon. Until then, we’re going to stay in the soup. However, we are in a lull this afternoon with a few peaks of sun for a change. Temperatures won’t be as cold today either. Rain returns tonight and lasts into early Tuesday afternoon before we get some welcome clearing. Wednesday through Friday feature mostly clear skies, but seasonably chilly temperatures.

Many thanks to the great folks at Grayson National Bank to make this venture possible!

After a raw and cold Sunday, with some ice across Blue Ridge areas to our north/east, today will be comparatively milder as a warm front lifts northward in advance a cold front. That front is already making progress into the mountains this afternoon which has caused the wind to shift out of the NW. This is also allowing some colder air to filter in, but even so, it will be milder than yesterday. There will even be a few peaks of sun this afternoon. Some spotty light rain or drizzle is possible along the Blue Ridge, but the next widespread rain holds off until tonight.
The rain will continue up until frontal-passage, which we have penciled-in by midday Tuesday. Skies will clear quickly thereafter, leading to a clear and cold Tuesday night.
The remainder of the workweek will be characterized by seasonably chilly weather, but it will be clear until later on Friday. High pressure will be in control of our weather.
We’ll be looking ahead to the next weather system that will impact western North Carolina, probably by next weekend.
