A Milder Monday

Skies will be sunny today and milder afternoon temperatures will promote a good deal of snow melt. Another blast of cold air arrives on Tuesday and Wednesday, before temperatures moderate for Thursday. Some snow showers and flurries will accompany this push of cold air on Tuesday and Tuesday night. After yet another cooldown on Friday, the weekend does look a bit milder again.

Forecast Discussion

Temperatures will rebound nicely this afternoon out ahead of the next cold front that is scheduled to pass through first thing on Tuesday. With highs flirting with the 50-degree mark this afternoon, that will melt a bit more snow.

Meanwhile, the front will bring another shot of cold air to the mountains for Tuesday and Wednesday. Scattered snow showers and flurries will be around Tuesday and Tuesday night. Light accumulations will mostly be limited to the NC/TN border areas. Cold air story will be big story for Tuesday night and Wednesday as a Canadian air mass returns.

Thursday will be briefly milder, before the next cold front knocks back temperatures for your Friday, along with a risk for snow flurries.

Temperatures will moderate again for next weekend. There could be some light rain entering the picture by Sunday out ahead of the next cold front.
