Chilly; Breezy

A few clouds develop late tonight. Friday night is windy and chilly. Breezy weather continues into Saturday morning. Clouds increase Saturday ahead of the next "1-2 punch" out of the Gulf of Mexico. With colder air in place, a wintry mix is possible late Saturday night into Sunday; light snow accumulations are possible at highest elevations.

We also forecast partial clearing of your holiday shopping list... RaysMarketplace.Com has the Snowman-O-Mometer Mug, the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar, the Big Snowman Wanted T-shirt, and the Ray's Wintry Mix Discount Combo.

Forecast Discussion

As promised in forecasts weeks ago, November's "month-end" was the dividing line between warm/dry and colder/wetter. Forecasters are having to wake up from long mental naps. :-) And I'm sure the weather-hype machines on social media are revving up--preemptively I say, "Please ignore!"

High pressure is centered to our northwest. It, combined with a low in Eastern Canada, is forcing chilly Canadian air into the Southeast on breezy NW winds. Expect a few clouds, cool temperatures, and gusty winds tonight. Saturday has a breezy morning, cool temperatures, but increasing clouds.

Low pressure is currently brewing in Northern Mexico. It will move across the Eastern U. S. in two waves: 1) a weaker system arriving Sunday, 2) the full enchilada early Tuesday.

With chilly air in place ahead of Wave 1, precipitation may begin as a wintry mix... late Saturday night into Sunday. Highest elevations may pick up light accumulations of snow; however, most of the region will be looking at a light glaze or dusting. Temperatures rise Sunday night as light rain tapers off.

The daytime Monday brings a break in precipitation but lots of clouds remain. Rain begins again Monday night lasting into Tuesday. Rain totals with this event will be greater.

Wednesday is a "tweener" as we await an arctic blast arriving Thursday. Temperatures will be briefly milder Wednesday ahead of a front arriving Thursday. Temperatures fall late Thursday leading to a VERY COLD Friday and Saturday next week. The coldest we have seen in a long time.
