Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at 7:04AM

Seasonally Pleasant til Friday

Cool high pressure controls our weather today and Thanksgiving Day. The result is quiet, dry weather with seasonal temperatures. However, Friday chilly air wedges southward down the Appalachians as low pressure approaches from the east. Clouds increase Friday with precipitation developing Friday night. This is NOT a repeat of last week's icing event, but a period of freezing rain (and sleet) is possible Friday night mostly along the east edge of the Appalachians. Temperatures warm quickly Saturday changing all precipitation to rain. Rain showers end during the afternoon Saturday. Sunday is warmer and pleasant.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure overtook the region Tuesday and remains in control through into Friday. Cool, quiet weather is a welcome weather theme through Thanksgiving Day.

Low pressure hits the Pacific Coast today and moves across the southern half of the U. S. Thursday and Friday. This enhances low pressure in the Western Gulf. Moisture will move northeast out of the Gulf Friday as colder air wedges southward down the Appalachians. We'll have increasing clouds Friday with precipitation developing Friday night. Precipitation will be mostly rain; however, a period of an icy mix develops in the evening especially right along the Blue Ridge (the eastern edge of the Appalachians) in NW NC. This is NOT as severe as what we experienced last week.

Temperatures warm Saturday, quickly changing all precipitation to rain. Rain will end during the afternoon Saturday.

Sunday looks especially pleasant ahead of the next front arriving late Sunday night.

Sunday night has showers. Much colder air arrives early Monday, with light precipitation possibly ending as a few snowflakes. Monday and Tuesday look blustery and cold.
