Forecast Last Updated at Monday, November 24, 2014 at 12:47PM

Mild Monday

First things first... Today is much milder--above average temperatures for the first time in a couple weeks. A shower cannot be ruled out, but rain will not be a significant issue. A front moves through this evening returning temperatures to seasonal levels Tuesday.
Of more importance for many... Low pressure forming just off the Georgia Coast tomorrow increases clouds Tuesday afternoon. Precipitation begins around midnight Tuesday night--snow at higher elevations but rain changing to snow at lower elevations. After a break for several hours in the PM Wednesday, snow showers return Wednesday night continuing into Thanksgiving Day.

The 2015 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar makes the perfect "From the Mountains" Christmas Present. Our photo contest yet again produced brilliant photography your friends and family can enjoy all year. You can purchase calendars at our Amazon Store or many fine retailers across the area.

Forecast Discussion

Moisture associated with Sunday evening's healthy rain event is far to our north today. A front is approaching from the west; ahead of the front mild air has a one-day party in the Eastern U. S. Today will be the warmest day in almost two weeks. The front moves through this evening returning temperatures to seasonal levels Tuesday.
Then comes the fun... Low pressure forms just off the Georgia Coast Tuesday then heads up the Atlantic Coast Wednesday and Thursday. Clouds increase Tuesday afternoon. Precipitation begins here around or just after midnight Tuesday night. It will be mostly snow at higher elevations, but may be rain changing to snow at lower elevations. Snow will be falling across the entire region Wednesday morning. After a break for a few hours, wrap-around snow showers arrive Wednesday night lasting into Thanksgiving Day. Were it not for marginal temperatures at onset, we would up the Snowman-O-Mometer to "Moderate Snow"; however, the temperature issues will keep us on the conservative side with "Light" with this forecast update. But stay tuned... a change of 1-2 degrees will could change the snow potential story.

Colder air arrives Thanksgiving Day, but not the polar assault of the last couple weeks. Thanksgiving Day will be cold. Friday will be less cold by afternoon. Then temperatures moderate further Saturday and Sunday.

We'll have dry weather Thursday night through a good part of Sunday. The next front from the west looks rather weak but is enough for a mention of rain shower chances late Sunday.
