Forecast Last Updated at Friday, February 12, 2016 at 5:53PM

Windy & Cold; Overnight Snow

An Arctic cold front arrives tonight accompanied by blustery winds, snow showers, and flurries. By Saturday morning, most of our area will will have picked up a dusting to 2"; however, a mountaintop 4" result is possible. See our Forecast Accumulations Forecast Map for details. The story tonight and tomorrow becomes wind and bitterly cold temperatures. Winds tonight and Saturday morning become NW 20-30 with gusts to 50 mph. Daytime temperatures Saturday will fall from sunrise highs. Windchills will be well below 0 (-30s windchills on mountaintops). Winds gradually diminish Saturday night.

A strong low develops early next week in the Southeast. It's looking more like a snow (Sunday night into Monday) to mix to rain (by late Monday), then back to snow showers (by Tuesday afternoon). It's far too early for details.

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure moved across the Southeast today and strengthened off the NC coast this afternoon. While causing a mess for our friends at the beach, this low system will be of little consequence to us. However, behind the low, a strong arctic blast arrives with gusty winds, snow showers, and flurries lasting into Saturday. Snow totals for most of the region will be a dusting to 2" with an isolated 4" report mountaintop report possible.

Overnight, the storyline quickly changes from "light snow" to "big cold" with northwest winds at 20-30 mph with gusts to 50 mph late tonight and Saturday morning. Daytime high temperatures Saturday will be at sunrise then fall to single digits (negative single digits on mountaintops). Wind chills will be in the negative teens for most and -20s/-30s on mountaintops. Strap down and bundle up!

Sunday is cold and generally cloudy as low pressure develops in Texas. Today, computer guidance is in general agreement with a low track across north Georgia, then Upstate SC, turning NNE and heading into New England on a track well inland. While nothing is settled with this system, this track would allow warmer air into the Southern Appalachians. Precipitation would start as snow (Sunday night into Monday), change to a wintry mix (Monday) then to rain (late Monday), then back to snow showers (Tuesday) before ending Tuesday evening. Any snow total forecast you see at this point is utterly useless. Things will come into better focus over the weekend.

The early week storm will signal a significant pause in our 10-12 day winter onslaught. Wednesday will have lots of clouds and chilly temperatures (cannot completely rule out sprinkles or flurries). Then Thursday we begin a gradual warmup that will last at least through next weekend.
