Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 10:04PM

Crisp, Cool

Those are two words that we’ve been unable to use up until now, as fall has been remarkably warm overall. Expect a clear and somewhat chilly night. I guess it’s time to make a more permanent switch from A/C to heat. Friday will be be nice, followed by a period of showers late Friday night into Saturday morning. Even chillier air will arrive for the second half of the weekend.

Forecast Discussion

Canadian high pressure centered over the Ohio Valley this morning will build overtop the southern Appalachians and Foothills by Friday morning. That means it will be sunny and pleasantly cool today, followed by a good spell of light winds and radiational cooling conditions tonight. Lows will be around 40, with lots of 30s in sheltered valleys.

Friday looks nice, but with an increase in clouds late in the day as a cold front approaches from the west. Showers are expected late Friday night into the first half of Saturday, although rainfall amounts are expected to be on the light side.

The big story will be the arrival of a strong push of colder air for Saturday night and Sunday. This will be the coolest of the season thus far, and will bring a high-elevation freeze to the mountains Saturday night, followed by a strong risk for a frost or freeze for the rest of us by daybreak Monday.

Mostly clear weather is expected Monday through Wednesday with a slow warming trend.
