Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend…

A strong cold front will pass through the region Thanksgiving Day. This front will bring showers and maybe a few thunderstorms before much colder weather returns to the region.

Temperatures will plummet Thursday night, and as that occurs, we will see the chance for snow showers settling in. Snow shower chances will continue on into Friday as well. Accumulations look rather minor as a whole. The highest accumulations will likely be around Snowshoe, but even there we are probably only talking about a few inches at best. For the North Carolina mountains, most accumulations should be less than two inches.

Highs Friday will struggle to reach the lower 30s with highs only toward the lower 40s Saturday.

For the North Carolina mountains, another chance for mainly light precipitation will arrive Saturday night and Sunday. A little snow or sleet could occur before changing over to rain Sunday, but amounts will be light.

A more significant system will arrive for Monday and Monday night and affect the entire region,
but it looks like the airmass will have warmed enough for mainly rain with that one.
