Forecast Last Updated at Friday, October 30, 2020 at 5:35PM

Much Cooler; Becoming Mostly Clear

A sharp cold front moved through late last night ushering in a stout northwest wind, and chilly temperatures. It was approximately 30-degrees colder Friday afternoon compared to the balmy finish we had Thursday. The chill doesn't go anywhere this weekend and is reinforced by another cold front Sunday.

The Rundown:
Tomorrow has plenty of sunshine and feels much nicer thanks to a gentler breeze. Sunday has more clouds and the opportunity for a passing light shower. Once again, the wind picks up Sunday and the coldest air we've experienced since March arrives Sunday night. Monday is cold and blustery even for early November standards.

Ray Russell's 2020-2021 Winter Fearless Forecast is now available. The bottom line for the forecast is: 1) less than average snow and 2) slightly warmer than average temperatures. We will have a few significant snow events but prolonged cold periods will be difficult to sustain. Get all the details here. The Fearless Forecast is sponsored by Peak Insurance Group.

The 2021 Blue Ridge Calendar is in stores now.  Visit for a complete listing of retailers or purchase online.  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the important work of the Blue Ridge Conservancy.

Forecast Discussion

In the short term, the weather plays out more like what you'd expect as we inch into November. A strong cold front moved through last night and we're reminded of the roaring sound of a 40-50 mph wind. There's more of that to come later... Clearing of clouds ensued this afternoon but temperatures don't rebound from where they started. Chilly high pressure makes an appearance Saturday with clear skies and a light wind. The full moon (Hunter's Moon) will be spectacular and fitting for Halloween night.

A reinforcing cold front moves through Sunday. Clouds return for the day and a passing light shower is possible. The bigger story is the development of a strong northwesterly flow and drastically colder air arriving Sunday night. Monday is downright cold, blustery too.

Thereafter, high pressure comes to dominate the eastern third of the nation making for a really nice week. Temperatures gradually rebound to seasonal levels or slightly above by Wednesday and Thursday. Rain is not in the vocabulary.
