Forecast Last Updated at Friday, March 23, 2018 at 11:59AM

Seasonably Cool Friday Afternoon; Yucky Weekend

Expect plenty of sunshine this afternoon followed by an increase in cloudiness later this afternoon and tonight. It won’t be as chilly, but temperatures will still run nearly 10-degrees below normal for afternoon highs. Rain returns for the weekend, and it will be a cold rain at that. In fact, a brief period of mixed precipitation is possible early Saturday before quickly going over to all rain. Light rain and drizzle on Sunday could conclude as some freezing drizzle Sunday night near the Blue Ridge.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar Photo Contest is underway. You can submit photos til March, 26. We wanted to keep the momentum going from this year's calendar. So, we'll start now and have calendars on store shelves sooner than ever before.

Forecast Discussion

Canadian high pressure is in control of the weather this afternoon. It will maintain cool conditions while allowing for ample sunshine.

Low pressure will head out into the central Plains later today and will jet eastward over the weekend, passing to our south and east by Sunday. Clouds will return tonight, followed by precipitation streaking out ahead of the low along its warm front early Saturday.

Mostly rain is expected, however it's possible that a little sleet and snow could be mixed in for a brief time early Saturday.

A strong cold air damming episode unfolds on Sunday as a new Canadian high wedges down the eastern slopes of the mountains. It will keep the weather damp and cold. It’s possible that leftover spotty drizzle or light rain on Sunday ends as freezing drizzle Sunday night, mainly for eastern sections from Ridgecrest to Hendersonville.

Unseasonably chilly weather continues on Monday as the wedge remains intact. Finally, we start to moderate after that. We’ll be back to seasonal norms by the middle of next week.
