Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 5:53PM

What a Day It Was!

Snow began before sunrise, and heavy snow fell until about noon. The afternoon had a mixture of sleet and snow with significant accumulations of sleet (but who can measure it?). I'm guessing that most of NW NC has between 6 and 12 inches of accumulation. There's 8-9" where I am.

As low pressure exits NC into VA this evening. Precipitation diminishes this evening. Then, we transition into a NW Flow snow shower period lasting through the daytime Monday. After 5 PM Sunday, additional accumulations will be an inch or so near the Blue Ridge, but 4" or so at favored mountaintops near the TN/NC Border. Wind becomes ferocious later tonight and Monday--NW 15-25 mph with gusts to 60 mph. Blowing snow and drifting will be an issue Monday. Things calm down Tuesday with a slight moderation in temperatures by afternoon.

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure is exiting NC into Virginia this evening. From there it heads to Pennsylvania by Monday morning and exits the U. S. via Maine. The upper-level center of the storm moves right up the Blue Ridge today.

Tonight, light evening snow if followed by a lull. Then NW flow snow showers develop lasting through the daytime tomorrow. Winds become strong making drifting and blowing snow a problem Monday.

We get only a brief break Tuesday into Wednesday with slight moderation of temperatures Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday.

The next front arrives Wednesday night. Clouds increase Wednesday and light rain develops Wednesday evening. Colder air arrives late Wednesday night. Precipitation changes to snow showers briefly before ending Thursday morning.

The front stalls to our southeast. Friday, low pressure forms along the front and moves northeast. We'll be on the cold side of that low. Snow develops Friday afternoon and continues into Saturday.
