Enhanced wildfire risk today with warm and windy conditions

Damp, cold to shift by week's end

Damp, cold to shift by week's end

A deep low-pressure system with a cold front will produce windy weather with blowing dust Thursday and Friday along with cooler, below-normal temperatures on Friday and Saturday.

A large and potent spring storm will bring much colder air, strong wind and snow to the northern and central Rockies by Friday. Our first care-free 70-degree day since February (last Tuesday doesn't count since we had severe weather).

Outside of the warmer weather, we could see a few rain showers in the morning. It will stay very breezy this weekend as well as the storm slowly trudges east. Highs will stay in the upper to mid 30s. Highs will return to the lower 80s for your Friday. The strong winds have prompted a Wind Advisory from 10 a.m to 8 p.m. Gusty conditions will also exist across the higher mountain ridges surrounding the New River Valley, and into the high country of northwest North Carolina.

Saturday A chance of snow before 2pm, then a slight chance of rain and snow between 2pm and 3pm, then a slight chance of rain after 3pm. A HIGH WIND WATCH is also in effect from 9 am to 7 pm for winds gusts near 60 miles per hour. South wind 13 to 17 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 26 miles per hour.

Friday: A 20 percent chance of showers after 1pm. Rain and mixed showers pop up throughout the afternoon and evening. Next Tuesday looks partly cloudy with highs in the 40s. Throughout the day tomorrow, a mix of rain, freezing rain, and snow is possible. Cloudy, with a low around 27. Rain will begin to move into West Alabama early Saturday morning.
