Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 6:50AM

Snow & Colder

Light snow develops quickly this morning continuing through the day and ends tonight. It's mostly a steady state event with a blanket of 1"-3" of snow across the board when all is said and done. The higher elevations fare a tad better, up to 4" for the mountain tops. Skies clear overnight leading to a very bright, but cold Friday. Temperatures moderate Saturday and Sunday afternoon with lots of sunshine making our 2nd dry weekend in a row (gasp). It will be a perfect time to hit the slopes, enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

A wave of low pressure has developed along the Gulf Coast heading east and jumps to the SC coast this evening. We're on the northern extent of the moisture shield, but there's plenty of cold air for all snow today. Light snow tapers to flurries and ends late this evening.

Below 4000 ft. I have the same concerns that have posed problems with the last several light snow opportunities. Borderline temperatures, a "warm" ground, and daylight. That being said, this round has a little more liquid to work with which should help overcome those obstacles. If everyone can sled this evening without seeing grass it will be a win!

Canadian based high pressure builds Friday and moves overhead Friday night. Temperatures don't make any progress tomorrow and the next couple of mornings are some of the coldest of the season.

The high shuffles towards the coast over the weekend allowing for a reasonable mild-up and lots of sunshine.

The next juicy area of low pressure heads our direction Monday. Clouds return late Sunday with light rain developing overnight into Monday morning. There could be a few wet flakes mixing in at onset, but it's a rain event Monday. Rain continues Monday night into Tuesday morning. Colder air returns in the middle of the week and there are some question marks with regards to timing. For now I have it delayed until Wednesday night or Thursday.
