Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 5:30PM

Messy Weekend (Sorry!)

The bulk of Saturday's rain has shifted to our north and east. This leaves us with a break for much of the night under mainly cloudy skies. More rain develops toward daybreak Sunday, and "periods of rain" will be the general rule of thumb through Monday. Temperatures will be well above seasonal averages through Sunday night. The heaviest rain comes Sunday night. Even thunder is possible Sunday. Colder air wraps in Monday. Precipitation might even end as wet snowflakes at higher elevations late Monday.

The 2017 Daniel Boone Rail Jam gets underway this evening in Boone at the historical Daniel Boone Park. Heading that way? Check out the hour-by-hour forecast for the event.

Forecast Discussion

Some thing cannot be changed; they just have to be endured. Our weather through Monday fits into that category. There's no "spin" I can put on this one that will make it go away.

A complex storm system is moving from the Southern Plains into the Southeast this weekend. Rain will come in 3-4 distinct waves, but I won't try to get too cute with timing each wave. Here's the basic sequence... 1) The first disturbance moved through this afternoon but has shifted to our north and east as early this evening, 2) Number two arrives early Sunday. 3) The primary surface low moves through late Sunday night. 4) Once the center of the complex system gets to our northeast, wrap-around moisture from the NW kicks in Monday. The bottom line is periods of rain this afternoon through Monday. Even thunder is possible Sunday.

For added "excitement", colder air wraps into the system Monday. As rain tapers to showers late Monday, precipitation could mix with snowflakes at higher elevations Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Finally, add windy conditions to your mental picture of this event for Monday and Tuesday.

Clouds will decrease Tuesday as the system exits northeast. As the center of mild high pressure moves east across the Gulf, we'll have a rapid warmup Wednesday--one very pleasant day.

Not to be ignored... A cold front from the west moves through Wednesday night delivering arctic air back into the Eastern U. S. I cannot rule out a stray shower Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Then with colder temperatures snow showers or flurries are possible late Thursday and Friday.
