A "clipper system" will swing through the eastern U.S. this weekend. For the North Carolina mountains, this clipper will really only amount to an increase in clouds as the weekend unfolds.
But, there will be a little bit of precipitation in the northern Virginias and Maryland. Some of this precipitation will fall in the form of snow, but many places will see some rain involved through the afternoon hours Saturday while temperatures are warmer. However, there will probably be a little bit of LIGHT snow accumulation in some spots, but I can’t stress the word LIGHT enough.
This is really not a significant system at all.
After the weekend, milder weather is still on tap for Tuesday and Wednesday with lots of 50s for highs and dry weather.
The weather picture for the end of the week continues to slowly come into better focus. A cold front should approach the region Thanksgiving Day and bring a round of rain to the region Thursday into Thursday night. Behind the front, chillier conditions will return by Friday. After that, the forecast picture gets pretty murky for the weekend following Thanksgiving. Temperatures will be cool, but I still don’t have much confidence in what our precipitation chances will be.
