Happy Halloween and Welcome to Winter

Besides being Halloween, today is prep day for what will be a furious Saturday weather-wise. Skies become cloudy and rain showers arrive later today lasting into Trick-or-Treat time. Cold air arrives tonight changing rain to snow from west to east between 9 PM and midnight. Snow then continues Saturday transitioning to snow showers in the afternoon and then to flurries later Saturday night. We upped the snow forecast one notch: 2"-5" for most but 5"-8" at higher elevations and along the western escarpment. See our Total Snow Accumulation Map for details.
Wind will also be an issue Saturday, 20-30 mph with gusts to 50 mph. Sunday has clearing skies with cool, breezy conditions. Then temperatures quickly return to seasonal norms Monday and Tuesday.

The RaysWeather.Com 2014-2015 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available, brought to you by Chuck Eyler Nationwide Agency. Snow-lovers will be excited.

Forecast Discussion

An upper-level low dives today through the Western Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. It will be in SC Saturday. In response to this energy aloft, low pressure forms at the surface in NC Saturday moving off the Outer Banks Saturday night. Ahead of this energy, rain showers develop later this afternoon continuing into the early evening. Colder air wraps into the Southern Appalachians tonight changing rain to snow from west to east between 9 PM and midnight. Snow continues overnight and Saturday becoming snow showers in the afternoon then tapering to flurries after midnight Saturday night.

We have played a conservative hand taking into account the date (rather early for snow) and warm ground; however, today we are compelled to nudge the accumulation forecast one notch. By the time it's all over (late Saturday night), expect 2"-5" for most of NW NC but 5"-8" at higher elevations and along the western upslope areas.

Wind will also become an issue Saturday--20-30 mph with gusts to 50 mph.

The cold and snow will leave almost as quickly as it came. Sunday is cold for early November but not as cold as Saturday. Breezy conditions continue Sunday. Then temperatures quickly rebound on a southwesterly flow and clear skies Monday. By Tuesday (Election Day), temperatures will be back to average for the date.

The next (weak) front arrives Wednesday evening. Clouds increase Tuesday. Wednesday is mostly cloudy with an afternoon shower possible. Skies clear Thursday with temperatures remaining near seasonal norms.
