Cool sunshine pattern ahead....cold blast this weekend...

>> Thursday, February 09, 2012

Here is today's edition of the video....a good bit to discuss this morning.

Sunshine returns today with only a few high cirrus clouds at times. Highs will top out in the upper 40s and lower 50s for most in the region.

Our next disturbance will approach the region tomorrow. Out ahead of the system, clouds will be in the increase with highs mainly in the 50s. The Piedmont will then have a brief shower chance tomorrow night into Sunday morning. For a good portion of Tennessee and Kentucky on up into the NC mountains and the Virginias, this will likely be another quick hit of some snow. I can't rule out the chance that a few flakes make it down into the foothills or piedmont Saturday morning, but I wouldn't count on it.

The bigger story this weekend is the cold air. Saturday will be blustery with temps in the 40s and a stiff northwest wind. Lows Sunday and Monday morning will be close to 20 in many piedmont spots, and some locales will likely dip into the teens.

Highs Sunday will struggle to make it to near the 40 degree mark despite full sunshine.

Ski conditions in the mountains this weekend will be very nice, but be aware, it's going to be quite cold. So bundle up before you hit the slopes.

Next week...

Our next disturbance should roll in by Tuesday morning. If the precip arrives early enough Tuesday morning, a brief shot of some snow is possible for parts of the region before temperatures warm. Nothing to get excited about yet though.

Another system will likely then arrive and bring rain by Thursday.

See the video for much more on all of this.
