Good afternoon! It has been a beautiful day so far with current temperatures (11:30am) in the upper 30s and low 40s. We will continue to warm, reaching highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Mostly sunny skies can be seen from the TDOT webcam, with only a few high thin clouds working through.
Working ahead, an isolated shower to sprinkle will be possible tomorrow afternoon/evening, but most should stay on the dry side. Further out, all eyes are on the system this weekend. A Clipper System (as we like to call them) will cross the area, bringing the opportunity for all precipitation types. There remains lots of uncertainty with track/position, which will dictate what we see. For now, anticipate a rain to snow mix with minimal accumulations. For snow lovers: root for a more southern track.
Diving a tad deeper, the WPC suggests a 10-30% chance for accumulating snow across the area. The best opportunity will be across the Appalachians on the North Carolina side. We will keep a close eye on this system, but expect many changes and better details ahead.
That will do it for today...enjoy another gorgeous and seasonable afternoon before increasing cloud cover arrives tonight and into Thursday.
