Forecast Discussion

A cold front is pressing east of the area this morning, and lingering early showers will come to an end. Slow clearing will commence during the afternoon and evening as cooler air invades. An upper level disturbance swinging through tonight and very early Saturday will be responsible for scattered snow flurries. Bright sunshine will then return for Saturday, but it will be cold with highs only in the lower 40s, or around 20-degrees below normal.

As high pressure builds overhead Saturday night, the clear sky and light wind pattern will provide the ingredients necessary for excellent radiational cooling. Thus, we expect a hard and potentially damaging freeze throughout western North Carolina early Sunday morning.

After unseasonably cold lows Sunday morning, temperatures will rebound nicely under generally sunny skies. Still, it will be unseasonably cool for the end of March.

Our next frontal system is scheduled to generate rainfall for your Monday, mostly early in the day. High pressure returns to provide dry and milder weather for Tuesday and Wednesday as the air mass behind the front is of Pacific origins. Another front will probably bring more showers for Thursday.
