Sunday began cloudy with showers moving in by noon. Upon the mountains above 2000 feet it was freezing rain. Temperatures at our NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation site hovered at or slightly below freezing for most of the day which allowed any rain falling to freeze on contact. Luckily the roadways were above freezing which prevented problems traveling, but still slick in spots.
Rain will come to an end by 6AM Monday morning and clearing skies by mid-morning. The remainder of New Year’s Eve will be sunny and sometimes a bit breezy as westerly winds move in. By New Year’s Evening clouds move back in with scattered snow showers possible late in the mountains. We could see more scattered snow showers on New Year’s Day in the mountains. Isolated rain showers are possible in the valley.
By the first night of the new year, temperatures will be diving into the low 20’s for valley lows and the mid- teens on the mountains. Daytime highs on the mountains never get above freezing until late week. Mountain lows even getting around 10 degrees later in the week. Below it will be very cold as well with daytime highs in the mid 30’s to 40’s until week’s end when we reach temps near 50Â°.
