Forecast Last Updated at Monday, December 22, 2014 at 7:12AM

Cloudy, Damp, & Gray

What you see is what you get the next few days...cloudy, damp, and foggy at times. Drizzle and a little light rain are a factor this morning and again tonight. Daytime temperatures don't budge much from this morning and don't drop much overnight. Steadier rain arrives Tuesday afternoon as a warm front lifts north through western NC. Temperatures rise late Tuesday night with moderate to heavy rain developing and continuing Christmas Eve, it will be mild. If you've got sunshine on your Christmas list then you won't be disappointed. Christmas Day is sunny and seasonal!

The RWC Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar makes the perfect "from the Mountains" Christmas Gift. Get them at our Amazon Store or at many fine retailers across the area (click here for a list of retailers).

Forecast Discussion

Chilly high pressure has wedged down the east side of the Appalachians. Low pressure has formed along the Southeast coast and slowly moves from SC to VA in the next 48 hours. We won't see appreciable rain before Tuesday afternoon. What we will see is overcast skies, fog from time to time, morning and nighttime drizzle or light rain (today and again tonight).

As the low lifts north it drags a warm front across the Carolinas Tuesday evening bringing heavier rain and rising nighttime temperatures. Meanwhile to our west...a cold front moves through the TN valley Tuesday. Low pressure develops along the front in the Gulf Coast heading north to the Great Lakes by Wednesday night. Ahead of the cold front abundant Gulf moisture and mild air makes for a very rainy Christmas Eve. The front passes a little before Santa makes his rounds at night with drier, sunnier, and cooler weather in store for Christmas day. The takeaway, it's going to be a soaker Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening.

High pressure builds Thursday and Friday with a quick turn around in temperatures Friday afternoon. A weak front comes through Saturday without much fanfare. Another disturbance may knock on the door Sunday afternoon but there is too much uncertainty this far out. We'll stick to a dry and cooler forecast for now.
