Windy, Bitterly Cold
Another cold blast strikes with vengeance tonight. The mercury began falling Tuesday afternoon as a strong northwest wind kicked into high gear. Any remaining flurries taper this evening. Temperatures go deep tonight and we'll hang onto the unseasonable chill until Thursday afternoon.

A cold front moved through western NC Tuesday morning. Temperatures have been dropping since the afternoon. Most of the snow shower action is over. Flurries end this evening and temperatures bottom out in the teens.
Wednesday remains cold as milder air holds off until Thursday. Even then, another quick moving cold front comes through Thursday night knocking temperatures down again Friday. A few flurries are possible with the cold shot late Thursday night into Friday morning.
The weekend is considerably milder as high pressure skirts over the Southeast. Clouds pile-up by Sunday morning ahead of a slow moving frontal zone and we think we can squeeze out a mostly dry Sunday. Light rain develops by Sunday evening and stays in play Monday. This round is all liquid and despite it's longer duration rainfall amounts will be light.
