Mud & Slush

With steady rain falling on snowpack, it’s hard to envision soggier ground conditions than what we will experience over the next couple of days. Steady or rising temperatures hold with us through the evening and overnight period. On Saturday, the character of precipitation will be more showery in nature with some sunshine breaking through from time-to-time. Sunday may have a leftover morning shower, followed by decreasing cloudiness.

Forecast Discussion

The weather map reveals low-pressure over Lower MS Valley with a warm front lifting northward through the Southeastern U.S. The low will head to the east-northeast while the warm front lifts northward, keeping a soaking rain going today into tonight.

On Saturday, an upper level low will bowl eastward into the region, crossing WNC Saturday night. A dry slot moving into the area might promote some looks at the sun on Saturday, but the threat for showers will continue until the low gets to our east by Sunday morning. Event total rainfall of one to two inches is expected.

High pressure will build in behind the departing storm system and provide welcome drying for a good portion of next week. Temperatures will be near to slightly above normal through the period.
