Forecast Last Updated at Friday, January 20, 2017 at 6:48PM

Blue Ridge Fog Tonight

Low clouds with areas of fog will remain draped across the Blue Ridge and out into the Foothills most of the night. The high plateau (including Boone) and areas to the west will see just some high clouds, and a little patchy valley fog.
Saturday morning will be dry and the day as a whole will be mild. But a potent storm system is moving our way this weekend; it will continue to dominate our weather Monday. Rain develops Saturday afternoon. Sunday through Monday morning has periods of rain, heavy at times with thunder possible. Showers linger into Monday afternoon as cooler temperatures arrive.

The 2017 Daniel Boone Rail Jam takes place in Boone this Saturday at the historical Daniel Boone Park. Thinking about going? Check out the hour-by-hour forecast Saturday evening.

Forecast Discussion

A persistent patch of cold air over the foothills will maintain low clouds and fog along the Blue Ridge and points east through the night. The fog will be dense in these areas, especially along the escarpment, so drive carefully. Up on top of the high plateau folks will be above the fog and low clouds for the most part, though a few patches of valley fog should develop late tonight.

But the main story in this forecast is a complex, large, potent storm system moving from the Southern Plains Saturday into the Southeast Sunday. A moist southerly flow develops ahead of the system Saturday. We could see the sun briefly Saturday morning, but rain develops in the afternoon and continues Saturday night. Sunday has periods of rain, heavy at times with thunder possible. A deep low will move northeast through Western NC Sunday night. Rain continues into Monday, finally tapering off Monday afternoon.

After the low moves to our northeast Monday, gusty wrap-around winds deliver much cooler air. The daytime high Monday will be in the morning. Temperatures gradually fall thereafter. Highest elevations could even see some snowflakes mixed in late Monday into early Tuesday morning. Gusty winds continue into Tuesday. Clouds decrease Tuesday.

We get one more mild, pleasant break Wednesday before much colder air returns Thursday. A front moves through Wednesday night. A stray light shower is possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Temperatures tumble Thursday and snow showers or flurries are possible late-day and Thursday night.
