Jan. 20, 2014. The “sunny and breezy” winter weather on MLK Day will subside as another cold front moves through the Southern Appalachians on Tuesday morning, bringing isolated double-digit snow accumulation “for prime high elevations” along the western escarpment and frigid temperatures to all, according to Ray’s Weather Center’s forecast.
But for the most part of the High Country, three to six inches seems to be the general outlook forecasted by the National Weather Service (NWS) and Ray’s Weather Center. The Blacksburg, Va., office of the NWS issued a Winter Storm Watch that goes into effect at 4 a.m. on Tuesday and ends at 11 p.m. that evening.
The low temperatures will be as follows: 6 on Tuesday; 15 on Wednesday; 0 on Thursday; and 13 on Friday, according to Ray’s Weather five-day forecast. Check out Ray’s snow forecast map here.
