Colder by Christmas...watching late next week for snow or ice

 

Colder air returns just in time for Santa and Christmas Day, but we are watching late-week for possible wintry weather.

Generally cloudy conditions remain with temperature in the 40s to lower 50s. Some wind gusts could approach 50 mph in the high mountains of western NC tonight into Christmas Morning.

One final disturbance will bring a small risk of light snow showers to areas near the TN/NC state border late Sunday evening into early Christmas morning. This will not amount too much – a dusting at best is expected at this time.

Christmas Day brings colder air to the area as the sunshine returns! Expect highs to be in the 40s with a mostly sunny sky.

While the weather stays quiet through mid-week, our attention will be on Thursday and Friday as there will be a chance of wintry precipitation to move into the area. At this time, it’s premature to talk type, accumulation, and timing…but the latest on this is right here.
