Sunshine and cold temperatures for the weekend

(WYMT) - Good morning! Some of us saw flurries last night! We will be dry through the weekend. There will be plenty of sunshine, bit it will be cold.

This Weekend
There is a Freeze Warning in effect through noon today for Lee and Wise County in Virginia and Claiborne and Campbell County in Tennessee.

Skies will clear by the afternoon. It will stay cold, even with the sunshine. Highs will only top out in the mid to upper 30s. Under clear skies, most locations will drop into the low to mid-20s Saturday night. It's certainly going to be a cold one.

After a frigid start Sunday morning, your Veteran's Day will warm up a little, getting into the upper 40s under sunny skies. Clouds will increase slowly late Sunday and into Monday morning. Overnight lows fall into the mid 30s.

Extended Forecast
Our attention throughout the weekend will be turned to Monday and Tuesday. The chances are still there for a system to bring rain and possibly even some snow.

Here's what we are confident enough to tell you: After starting off Monday dry, rain chances will move into the forecast by the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s and close to 50 on Monday afternoon. After that, the cold air will work into the mountains Monday night, Tuesday and even on Wednesday.

That moisture will be around Monday night and into Tuesday morning. Temperatures will drop but the main question is how fast will they drop? If we get colder air in quick enough, we will see a transition to a wintry mix or even some snow Monday night and into your Tuesday.

The GFS model has favored snow for the past couple of days. The NAM and EURO are climbing aboard the snow train as well.

These three models show precipitation starting to transition to snow around midnight Monday night. The NAM likes a wintry mix. It should be noted that the bulk of the moisture will fall as rain.

Once again, a lot of this will be determined in the weekend model runs. We have a long way to go. Stay updated to the WYMT Weather App for future updates.
