Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, February 10, 2016 at 12:50PM

And the Beat Goes on...

It's Day 3 of snow showers and flurries. Snow accumulations are nearing the forecast totals we have been advertising since Sunday. If anything they are nearing the top end of our Accumulations Graphic in the western half of the Appalachians. You'll hear a few mountaintop reports of over one foot tomorrow, I'm sure. In spite of snow showers and flurries continuing off and on through tonight, most of the region will pick up no more than 1" (dusting at most on the eastern edge of the mountains). However, higher elevations along the western escarpment could see another 1"-3" by tonight. Thursday has decreasing clouds after early flurries end.

Temperatures are very cold and with gusty winds. Wind chills are below 0 for most of the region, but in the -20s on mountaintops. Tonight, windchills will be in the minus teens for most, -20s again on mountaintops. Friday has a return of snow showers and flurries lasting into Saturday morning. An even colder blast of Arctic air arrives Saturday. High temperatures Saturday will be at sunrise then fall to brutally cold levels Saturday night.

Forecast Discussion

Today we reach the peak of cold with the current arctic blast. But an even colder blast arrives Saturday. With gusty winds today, negative windchills are common (-20s on mountaintops). Tonight with even stronger winds, windchills will be even a bit colder. Saturday, temperatures will fall from sunrise highs. Saturday night and Sunday morning will be the coldest of the season. If you will be outside, prepare accordingly.

And snow showers/flurries continue... With the wind, totals will be nearly impossible to measure. But expect another 1" or less for most of the Appalachian region (no more than a dusting eastern edge); however, the western escarpment (near the TN/NC border) will pick up another 1"-3" before it ends. And it will end... Early Thursday morning as flurries.

We get a 24-hour break Thursday with cold temperatures. Winds will settle Thursday afternoon and night. Skies become cloudy again early Friday with another round of snow showers and flurries lasting into Saturday.

Sunday starts bitterly cold but temperatures moderate slightly in the afternoon. Clouds return Sunday night. Low pressure develops in Texas Sunday moving across the Southeast Monday. It's too early to clearly characterize the Monday event... could be a snow to mix (even briefly to rain) to snow showers event, but nobody knows yet. Stay tuned. Tuesday has lots of clouds with less cold temperatures; however, light precipitation cannot be ruled out even Tuesday.
