Snow Ending, Colder
The northwest flow snow machine (push-mower sized) has run out of gas. Click here for our snow accumulations forecast from yesterday through this morning. Clouds decrease this afternoon though it remains quite chilly and blustery at times. Wednesday is the sunniest day of the week, but not the "mildest" which is reserved for Thursday. Another front brings light rain Thursday afternoon changing to snow showers and flurries at night, nothing big. Maybe we'll save that for early next week...

A northwesterly flow remains in place in the wake of yesterday's clipper that is now a raging Nor'easter off the New England coast. Snow showers and flurries fizzled out this morning with increasing afternoon sun (more east than west).
Wednesday, high pressure builds over the Ohio Valley and Southeast transitioning to the Atlantic coast by Thursday afternoon. This makes for a sunny day tomorrow, still chilly, but not as cold. The "mildest" day of the week is Thursday as a southwesterly wind on the backside of the high brings temperatures back to seasonal levels. However, a cold front sweeps over western NC Thursday evening with light rain showers changing to snow showers overnight into Friday. This will be a smaller event than what just occurred.
Friday is cold and blustery, Saturday not as bad. All eyes turn towards west Texas over the weekend with a developing area of low pressure ejecting into the Mississippi Valley Sunday. Questions abound on the track of the low, but right now we have it passing to our north. With that idea in mind we'll see a rain/snow mix Sunday afternoon, perhaps changing to all rain Sunday night for a while, then to all snow by Monday morning. That's not a lot of detail, but probably too much given the uncertainty. What is more clear is another big-time shot of cold air arriving Monday behind the system.
