Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, November 27, 2014 at 7:28AM

AM Flurries; Rather Cold

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving!
Snow flurries returned late Wednesday night continuing into Thanksgiving morning thanks to a clipper low speeding southeast through the NC Mountains this morning. Most of our area will pick up only a dusting of snow (or less) with an inch or two possible in the higher mountains to our north and west. Colder air arrives behind our little clipper leading to a very cold night. Friday will be cold and dry. Gradually moderating temperatures follow for the weekend into early next week.

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

After a complicated beginning of the week for forecasters leading into Thanksgiving, we're thankful for pretty easy forecast today through Monday... A speedy clipper low moves through the NC Mountains today followed by a healthy push of cold air in its wake. The result will be morning snow flurries followed by a healthy push of colder air. Breezy winds will add a little chill to any outdoor activity.

Friday through most of the daytime Monday will be dry. Friday is cold, but a gradual moderating trend begins Saturday. Sunday and Monday, we'll be above seasonal averages.

The forecast gets a little more complicated Monday night through Wednesday. A front moves through late Monday with showers possible late Monday and Monday night. Behind the front, high pressure anchored in New England quickly wedges down the Southern Appalachians. Tuesday looks cloudy and cooler with a few light showers and drizzle possible. A secondary cold front moves through Wednesday will somewhat colder air. As a result, we cannot rule out showers Wednesday; then Wednesday night will be a bit (not dramatically) colder.
