Short range models continue to refine how exactly the next front will move through, but it appears more and more likely that thunderstorms will be possible around WNC late Saturday afternoon, or Saturday evening. This is all associated with the arctic front that I have been tracking for the past week. This will be the coldest air of the season so far, but more shots of cold air will be on the way over the next month. Below you can see the most recent 12km Nam run, and it has a strong line of storms moving in late Saturday. Following this front, backside moisture will move through WNC and some snow showers cannot be ruled out Sunday morning. Winds will gust over 30mph for many locations and temperatures could plummet into the low 20’s by Sunday morning. Monday morning though will be extremely cold, and many locations will reach the low teens. I can’t rule out some isolated 0 degree readings above 4500’ either! So please begin to prepare yourself and your household for the extreme cold that appears imminent. I will do a live in-app update tonight at 7:30pm, and then that video will be uploaded to facebook after, so be sure to tune in for more information.
