Winter Storm Warning.

A Wind Advisory is in effect from until 7 PM Thursday for Tazewell county.

Wind advisory.

DISCUSSION: Highs will struggle to make it into the 30s this afternoon with most in the upper 20s and low 30s. Breezy conditions continue on, which will make it feel even colder than that. We will see snow showers starting to taper off this afternoon. We could clear up enough to see some sun at times as well. However, we are in for a cold night as lows fall into the low 20s and upper teens.

Some more snow will be possible on Friday as a clipper system arrives during the middle of the day. This could make travel a bit tricky at times, so we’ll keep an eye on this quick mover. Accumulation is not looking impressive this round with maybe an additional inch or two. Temperatures will be cool as highs stay stuck in the low 30s.

Another quick snow for Friday.

Saturday is dry, but cold with highs still in the 30s. Overnight lows will be even colder in the teens. More sunshine is on tap for Sunday and we try to warm up a bit as highs are back in the 40s.

We start next week off with some rain, but temperatures look to be well above average at that point. Look for on and off showers to arrive Monday and Tuesday.

Highs in the low 60s are looking possible on Wednesday. This will be possible due to our next big storm system approaching the area and pulling in a lot of warm air and moisture. Heavy rainfall is looking likely as this system arrives during the second half of the day. We’ll have to keep an close eye on this system as we get closer in time. Temperatures dip again after this passes, and Thursday is looking to feel a bit more wintry.
