Light snow crosses the TN/NC border late this morning and spreads east. Periods of snow continue tonight and end as flurries Saturday morning. Accumulations during the daytime will mostly be above 3500' (hampered below by daytime and marginal temperatures), but the entire region gets into the act tonight. Total accumulations by Saturday morning will be 1-4" for most but up to 6" on mountaintops near the NC/TN border. See our snow forecast map for details. After early flurries, Saturday has decreasing clouds, cold temperatures, and gusty winds. Sunday is mostly sunny and milder by afternoon. Rain develops by Monday afternoon and is in play through early Thursday (including Election Day Tuesday). The heaviest rain comes Wednesday.

Forecast Discussion

It's been a busy weather week, but we've had the "play by play" in good shape. We end with "the little engine that could"--a clipper low quickly moving across the region tonight.

Skies become generally cloudy this morning. A snowflake or two is possible early this morning, then light snow and show showers spread from west to east beginning late in the morning. Snow showers continue tonight and end as flurries Saturday morning. Temperatures this afternoon will be marginal hampering accumulation below 3500'. Most of the accumulation below 3500' occurs tonight. Above 3500', it's "snow on snow". Expect generally 1"-4" across the region by late Saturday morning favoring higher elevations. Mountaintops near the NC/TN border will get 6" or so.

Cold high pressure takes control Saturday--a cold, blustery day. As the high moves to our east Sunday, temperatures moderate by afternoon.

The next front approaches from the west next week but does not move through until late Wednesday night. Periods of rain develop around noon Monday and will be in play until early Thursday. Heaviest rain occurs Wednesday. Temperatures fall behind a secondary front Thursday night and snow showers are possible by next Friday.
