544 AM EST Wed Dec 7 2016

Yesterday`s storm system brought beneficial rainfall to the
region. Rainfall amounts generally ranged from three-quarters to
one and one half inches, including a record 1.32 inches for
December 6th at Blacksburg. High pressure is building into the
region, though generally cloudy skies with areas of mist or fog
have persisted early this morning. Fog was locally dense at times
across the southside of Virginia extending into much of northern
and central North Carolina. Temperatures this morning were coolest
in the Virginia and North Carolina piedmont as skies cleared out
and ranged from the low to mid 30s, but were in the upper 30s to
low 40s west of the Blue Ridge and into parts of the Roanoke

Clouds should continue to burn off leading to variable cloudiness
today as high pressure builds into the region. Temperatures should
remain around seasonal normals in the 40s to the mid 50s.

A pattern change toward colder temperatures and dry weather is
expected for Thursday as a strong cold front moves across the
area. The front will usher in some of the coldest air the region
has seen thus far early this winter season, with low temperatures
falling into the teens to low 20s Thursday night and wind chills
in the single digits to low teens. Colder than normal temperatures
will continue into Friday but with slackening northwest winds.
Look for a moderating trend to temperatures for the upcoming
