Cold weather inbound.... some snow for some as well....

>> Thursday, October 30, 2014

The 80s we had earlier this week will soon become a distant memory. However, the weather today and tomorrow really looks just fine with highs in the 60s. Then an extremely intense upper level low will dive overhead Friday night into Saturday.

This feature will spread some rain into the piedmont Friday night. Up in the mountains, snow will quickly take over, and some of the favored NW-facing locations could easily wind up exceeding 3-6" before all is said and done.

For the piedmont, as temps aloft and at the surface cool, some snow could mix in with the rain at times late Friday night into Saturday morning. Ground temps are warm, so I doubt any accumulations occur, but don't be surprised to see some snowflakes in the air in some areas. Highs Saturday will only be in the 40s. 

Sunday will be chilly, but it will feel much better with full sunshine and highs in the 50s. Morning lows Sunday and especially Monday morning could dip below freezing in many areas. 

Temps will moderate next week with some spots possibly seeing 70 again by mid-week.

Big changes on our doorstep...

>> Wednesday, October 29, 2014

A cold front will work through the region today, and we will have the chance of some showers, mainly this afternoon lingering into this evening, as that frontal passage occurs. Lows tonight will then head into the 40s with a clearing trend settling in.

The weather tomorrow and Friday looks cool and quiet with a good bit of sun and highs in the 60s. 

A potent piece of upper level energy will then dig into the region Friday night into Saturday and usher in a big-time shot of early November cold air. Due to the strength of the upper level energy, some precipitation is looking increasingly likely later Friday night into Saturday morning. The mountains are a near-certainty to see some snow out of this, and some snowflakes could mix in even out into the foothills and piedmont late Friday night into Saturday morning.

At this point, I am anticipating highs struggling to reach 50 Saturday with a stiff northwest wind in place. Sunday should see 50s for highs with a sunny sky overhead.

The morning low forecast is tricky, as it will largely depend on how the clouds and winds behave. I still think that many spots could see a frost or a light freeze Sunday and/ or Monday morning though.

Sunny and warm today... big changes ahead...

Highs will head into the lower 80s in most spots this afternoon under a sunny sky. Enjoy! 

A cold front will drop into the region tomorrow and bring a quick-hitting chance of showers tomorrow afternoon. Highs tomorrow should be in the 70s. Following that front, highs will back down into the 60s Thursday and Friday. The weather looks great with temps in the 50s for both the Panthers game Thursday evening and trick-or-treaters Friday evening.

Shot of cold air...

A big-time blast of cold air is on the way this weekend. Piedmont highs Saturday and Sunday will be in the 50s, and it's looking likely that a freeze will occur in many spots Sunday and maybe Monday morning. Temps will then slowly return to the 60s for highs by Monday and Tuesday. 

The mountains will likely see the first snowflakes of the season Friday night. The European model really goes nuts with the upper level energy Saturday and closes off an upper air low around the region. This solution even generates a few snowflakes over the northern Piedmont. However, that scenario is likely overdone.
