534 AM EST Tue Dec 6 2016
A large frontal system over the Deep South has produced cloudy
conditions and off-and-on very light rain or drizzle across
southwest Virginia, southeast West Virginia and northwest North
Carolina this morning. Rainfall amounts through the pre- dawn
hours have only been up to a couple hundreths of an inch. With
southeast winds, it has been a relatively mild early December
morning with current temperatures in the low to mid 40s.
Rainfall will become more steady as it continues to advance
northeastward from the Tennessee Valley and the Carolinas,
tapering to light rain by the late afternoon hours. A beneficial
0.75 to 1" of new rainfall is anticipated from this system.
Generally dry and seasonable conditions should predominate for
Wednesday. A strong cold front moving across our area Thursday will
usher in some of the coldest air yet experienced thus far in the
early winter season for Thursday night into Friday. Breezy
northwest winds accompanying the cold temperatures may produce
wind chill values in the single digits in locations west of the
Blue Ridge Thursday Night.
