Ready for a warm up!

Posted: Updated:

Good Thursday.  I have been asked a number of times in the past day, "If temps are below freezing, why is the snow in my yard going away?"  The answer is a process called sublimation.  Think of it as snow evaporating.  It is when snow skips the step of melting and goes straight into a gaseous state. 

Melting is something that we will see plenty of with the snow that is still there. 

High pressure will move to our east.  The flow of air around that high will give us light southerly winds which means highs near 40 this afternoon.

Tonight will see temps falling back down to about 20 degrees, then the warm weather continues with a high of 51 on Friday.  The normal high for this time of year is 52.

For the weekend, it will be mild with temps in the 50s.  Clouds will build Saturday with some rain showers moving in Saturday night into Sunday morning.

It looks like we may be in store for some heavier rainfall toward the middle of next week.

    (WRCB) - Good Saturday. While we have seen a few light sprinkles this morning, the bulk of the rain stayed east and south of the area, and I think that will continue to be the case. For the rest of the day we can expect mostly cloudy skies with a high today of 74. We will see our winds increasing behind the front to 10-20 mph from the northeast.Tonight, the winds die down, and we will see some clearing heading through the overnight.More

    Parts of the area remain under Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings. I don't think we are looking at any widespread problems this morning, but patchy areas of frost are certainly possible, especially in the Blue Ridge.More
