.DISCUSSION...

A low pressure system sliding by to our north will bring strong
gusty winds to the Appalachians and central mid Atlantic region,
along with upslope snow showers for the higher elevations west 
of the Blue Ridge. High pressure will then build over the
eastern part of the country and bring us fair weather with a
warming trend as we head into the weekend. A low pressure 
system will then move out of the lower Mississippi valley late 
in the weekend and bring a chance of rain to the forecast for 
Sunday.
