Lots Of Clouds & Seasonably Cool

Sunshine was filtered through some high clouds today. Temperatures haven’t be too bad, just seasonably chilly. Superbowl Sunday looks nice, with temperatures a notch milder. Significant changes are in store starting on Monday, as we enter a very cold and snow showery period that will take us into midweek. Winter’s definitely not done!

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is here for Superbowl Weekend. It will provide tranquil weather with just some higher clouds to contend with from time-to-time. Low-pressure developing off the Carolina coast on Sunday will affect coastal sections, but not areas here in the western part of the state. Sunday will be a notch milder than today.

Things go downhill in a hurry on Monday. An Arctic cold front will swing through the mountains during the day on Monday. It will bring a round of snow showers and squalls during the daytime, with occasional snow showers and flurries persisting Monday night through at least Wednesday morning.

Preliminarily, we’re expecting a dusting to as much as two inches across the lower elevations of the French Broad Valley during Monday-Wednesday time frame. The farther north and west you go from Asheville, the more snow that you will see. Expect our snowfall forecast map to be issued sometime Sunday afternoon.

The other big story will be the cold. The combination of much below normal temperatures, wind and snow showers will make for a most uncomfortable period for much of next week. We will begin to moderate a bit by Thursday and Friday, however.
