Could We See Significant Snowfall This Weekend? PDF Print

Weather officials at the National Weather Service are calling for snow on Friday and Saturday, but biting their tongue about how much we could see.


The NWS says weather will take a turn for the worse on Friday and Saturday as a disturbance comes across the Southern Plains and along the Gulf states.  They are calling for mostly snow with some sleet along the North Carolina / Virginia border.

The problem with predicting how much snow the High Country could get this weekend is caused by a disagreement in several of the National Weather Service’s models including timing and surface low predictions.

On their forecast discussion, weather officials state, “The chances for the area seeing measurable snowfall is very good.  The chance for the area seeing significant snowfall of four inches or more is pretty good (30-40 percent).  The jury is still out on exactly how much snow we will get.”

As we get closer to the weekend, the NWS will likely tweak their forecast and add more concrete predictions for the weekend’s weather.
