Arctic Dusting Then Spring Cleaning

Skies will be partly sunny this afternoon with relatively milder temperatures. Clouds return tonight along with a period of light snow and flurries that will last into early Wednesday. Accumulations of around an inch will be possible, with perhaps closer to two inches in Catawba County. Sunshine returns on Wednesday after early flurries end, and it will be very cold. After we get past a very cold Wednesday into early Thursday, a significant moderation in our weather pattern is on the way.

Why is that 2017 calendar still hanging on your wall? Get into the new year with a 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar. Buy them online or at many retailers across the region.

Forecast Discussion

The last in a series of Arctic cold fronts which have attacked the region since Christmastime is approaching today. Ahead of the front, it won’t be half-bad as skies will be partly sunny with only slightly below normal afternoon temperatures.

Clouds and a period of light snow and flurries arrive tonight, lasting into early Wednesday. Light snowfall accumulations are expected, mainly an inch or so. In this setup, the farther east that you go, the more snow that you could see, so the Hickory area could have upwards of two inches with lighter amounts farther north and west. The big winners could be Piedmont areas of North Carolina, where locally up to 4 or 5 inches will be possible. With full afternoon sunshine returning, highs will fail to get back to the freezing mark.

Thursday and Friday will feature generally clear skies with a steady moderation in temperatures. By the weekend, we’ll be back above normal with plenty of sunshine. The next frontal system will bring our next opportunity for rainfall by the start of next week.
