Clouds, Not Much Rain

Spotty light rain developed before sunrise and remains in the region early this morning. Spotty drizzle is possible for the rest of the day. Patchy fog is possible tonight. We'll see the sun Sunday, but clouds increase again in the PM hours. Light rain and drizzle develops Sunday night. Clouds with spotty light rain and drizzle will be with us all the way through the daytime Tuesday. Then a front approaching from the west brings heavier rain Tuesday night.

The RWC Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar makes the perfect "from the Mountains" Christmas Gift. Get them at our Amazon Store or at many fine retailers across the area (click here for a list of retailers).

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico is spreading precipitation into the Southeast today, but not much. Expect spotty light rain Saturday morning with drizzle possible this afternoon and patchy fog tonight.

Sunday night and Monday, low pressure develops off the Southeast Coast heading slowly north. Meanwhile, high pressure centered in the Canadian Maritimes wedges down into the Southern Appalachians. After some morning sun Sunday, we are in for an extended period of clouds and cool (but not cold) temperatures. Spotty light rain and drizzle develop Sunday night and will be possible all the way to Tuesday.

A potent front from the west arrives Wednesday. Heavier rain arrives Tuesday night lasting into early Wednesday morning. Temperatures will rise ahead of the front (Wednesday morning).

White Christmas? It's not in the cards; however, a few snow flurries are possible Wednesday night as colder air arrives.

Christmas Day looks cool with decreasing clouds. Milder temperatures quickly return next Friday with increasing clouds in the PM hours. There's greater potential for colder weather as we get closer to New Year's Eve and Day.
